Happy People-Happy Actors

"She couldn't be nicer and more professional during the recording of the self-tape, not only that, she gave me great tips and advice and made me feel very relaxed - I actually booked the part!! (The Bookshop, alongside Emily Mortimer/Bill Nighy & Patricia Clarkson) Best self-tape team I can think of in London (actress and director, what else do you need?) I wouldn't doubt asking for her help again" 

Jorge Suquet, Actor

"Working with Elif is wonderful. She knows exactly how to help me get out of my own way and get to my truth. She knows exactly how to get to me and taught me how to use everything that is physically real around me and happening in the moment as a tool to the scene which makes every moment truthful and not fabricated. She also makes the environment very safe therefore I can be brave with my decisions and trust my instinct. It really is a bliss to be taught by her."

Morgane Polanski, Actress 


"I met Elif in August whilst attending drama school to improve my skills, gain representation and combat my stage fright. Elif was very nurturing and went above beyond in many ways. One thing I value about Elif is her honesty. I’ve been successful in securing representation, combating stage fright and securing my first Job ,‘ The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams’. Elif helped me  prepare for my auditions for the afore mentioned play, not just acting tips but script break down and selfing taping for auditions. Thank you Elif.”

Naima Swaleh, Actress

I have really enjoyed working with Elif. She has extensive knowledge and experience in the acting profession. Not only has she helped me to apply this knowledge and other techniques to the screen, it has also helped me in life in general. She is also a very nice person and easy to talk to.

Emma Sengstock, Model

"I almost always get call backs on any audition I've prepared or taped with Elif. She is very professional, dedicated to her work and knowledgable; she truly takes the time to dissect scenes and to understand the character. She also always offer invaluable advice and follows up to see how I performed on my audition... I highly recommend working with her."

Razane Jammal, Actress

“Elif has been coaching me every week. I can't recommend her highly enough!! She has taught me such a mixture of invaluable things and tools from a range of techniques that have changed my acting forever. Elif has such a wealth of knowledge and skills and is so lovely, kind and fun to work with!”

Natalya Wolter Ferguson, Actress/Buisness woman

Elif is a fantastic tutor and  very professional, she always encouraged me like an old friend would & made me more interested in acting. She not only taught me in terms of acting, but also helped me understanding UK’s culture and how to live in London. I am really enjoy working with Elif every single session and highly recommend her.

"Elif is a wonderful kind soul ! She provides a safe environment to discover areas of your imagination you haven’t dare go into as well as pushing you with scripts, monologues or anything you want to self tape."  

Cecile Sinclair, Model/Actress

“She is a fantastic coach, I have been working with her for the past 6 months and have gained so much from every session. She is patient, enthusiastic, encouraging and inspiring. I have really furthered my craft and have even booked professional jobs since starting sessions with Elif. I fully recommend her to others!”

  Alan Bradley- Actor 

“Elif is one of the best actresses that I have met in my life. She helped me with my auditions and I strongly believe I got a place at the acting academy in London because of the knowledge of acting that I have gained from training with her. Her approach is very professional yet friendly. She gives  material to work on which is extremely helpful for a student and she genuinely cares about her students. I can not recommend her highly enough.”
