Every year I help a small number of pupils through their LAMDA Exams.
- Advice on which exams will be of greatest benefit to the individual aims of the student.
- Regular lessons guiding the pupil through the process of preparation, rehearsal and performance.
- Supporting materials where appropriate.
- An in-depth and practical understanding of the 'knowledge' element of examining.
- Sight-reading technique.
- A flexible schedule to accommodate pupils other commitments.
** Currently accepting new pupils for LAMDA Exams **
I graduated from LAMDA with a BA(hons) in professional acting. I've been putting pupils through the LAMDA Exams syllabus since 2014 - I've never had student fail an exam! I continue to work as a professional actor alongside my tutoring commitments.
I offer a free 20-30min consultation where we can get to know one another as well as discuss any specific needs you may have! If you're unable to meet in person, or would prefer to expedite the process, then I'm happy to do this over the phone.

Calum is very supportive, you feel absolutely comfortable asking him for help or advice at any time. The help doesn’t stop at the end of the lesson. He pays a lot of attention, perceives things very acutely and works his way around who you are and how you experience acting, gives you the freedom and confidence to explore. I must honestly say that I had lost a bit of the joy I used to have when I first started acting and was surprised when I started to feel it again working with him, to my greatest joy. If you don’t have fun in it, there is just no point in doing it. You have fun, you are pushed and supported. Most importantly, you trust yourself to go further and put the work in because you know you are believed in. He is, in my humble opinion, the best tutor you could ever have. I can do nothing else but recommend him a thousand times.
Calum has a naturally calming personality that cannot be taught. I was extremely nervous before auditioning for drama school but with calum's impressive knowledge and constructive teaching I flew through all my auditions, getting many recalls and eventually a place at a top drama school. I Would highly recommended him to anyone seeking acting help. He will go that extra mile for you and genuinely wants to extract your best potential.
I have known Calum Finlay for over ten years. He is extremely trustworthy and fantastic to collaborate with. I have witnessed him being a very patient and tutor. We have worked on several theatrical projects together, and he has always worked diligently to ensure the project success.
I have seen him teach 1:1 and also in a group and Calum's technique is very adaptable to who he is working with.
His impressive work ethic and passion is the reason I would recommend him to anyone!
