Get your character's individual rhythm
Do not take the same rhythm and pitch from scene partners while in the same play and the same scene(s). You may not notice this yourself. This is where you need a 'guest director' from your fellow actors while you rehearse - to assess this and warn you. So that you sort out this sort of problem before you show in front of your teacher. This is more likely in a scene shared by women actors. So beware!
Character is shown in action (excerpt acting)
You have to show the behaviour of your character. Do not be too fussy - but also SHOW the character in detail. There is so much that you have to fill in through your imagination, through your use of improvisation in your rehearsal process, through your rehearsal work with teacher. We have to go against the text a bit. The character - in the whole play - is shown in detail. So we have to get the essence of the character into the excerpt. This means - often - a freer approach to what is in the text. This means a workshop approach to the excerpt. You could make some changes and show more of the character - the audience need this.
