My objective is to provide quality coaching in acting & drama to young people and aspiring artists. My methodologies revolve around positive reinforcement, avoiding put downs, and encouraging self-belief as a tool for young people to strive in being themselves. My methods are a unique blend of play and professional practice, as there is much to be learned from the childlike curiosity of discovering a new skill and using this element of fun to improve confidence, speaking and listening, as well as a general sense of character and self-exploration. My abilities as a vocal coach take their teachings from approved vocal pioneers such as Barbara Houseman and Estill.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Tom will plan your first lesson with care.
I am a professionally trained, working actor and drama facilitator. My conservatoire training at the School of the Arts - Northampton has given me a kaleidoscope of skills including: acting for stage and screen, movement on stage, vocal technique, Shakespeare, and improvisation. I received my training from industry professional Christopher Simpson (The Good Karma Hospital; ITV 2017) as well as the founder of Trestle Theatre Company (est. 1981) Dr. Sally Cook. I have played in multiple roles, including Ben in 5-star reviewed comedy ‘O,FFS’ which debuted at the Actors Centre in London and later played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018. I have had multiple roles in award-winning short films, as well as feature film appearances. My objective as an acting and drama coach is to give high quality drama coaching to young people is to not only provide industry-level preparation and professional practice, but also to improve confidence, positive character building, and improved speaking and listening skills. I am also on the official Directory of Teachers for LAMDA.

Perfect! I have just started using Tom as my acting tutor- he is helping with my drama school entrance auditions. So far he has been excellent! he has provided me with a structured and detailed plan of the training he plans to give me over the next few months and really listened to what I want to achieve and incorporated it in to his training plan! I have really enjoyed Tom's teaching so far and I am really looking forward to what's to come!
Flora has a great touch for comedic role and a resonant voice. It would be good to work on professional vocal technique to better hone your instrument and learn to use it professionally so that you become more adaptable and can apply it successfully and healthy to a variety of roles. You have a great attitude for learning new things and I can’t wait to delve deeper into the acting world with you. T
