Information about Adam
I`m a professional actor and tutor currently working in theatre, film and television.

As an actor I have worked extensively within the profession, with recent theatre credits including: MY COUNTRY (THE NATIONAL THEATRE), and AFRICAN GOTHIC (PARK THEATRE); featuring on programmes including KIRI, HOLBY CITY, THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, and FLEABAG, and in films including THE DEATH OF STALIN, THE CHAMELEON and PRIDE.

Experience: For the last 11 years I have taught acting and vocal skills to a wide range of students across a variety of organisations and ages, from teenagers up to retirees. I prepare students for drama school auditions, focusing on classical and contemporary monologues and audition technique. I specialise in RP and phonetics, accents, and effective use of the voice, alongside modern acting techniques and improvisation. I currently work on a freelance basis for a well known Performing Arts School, delivering classes to 300 students in a wide range of disciplines, and for an organisation providing acting classes for adults. I also work with those looking for help with accent reduction, public speaking and presentation in the workplace, improving positivity, confidence and self esteem.
I`m a firm believer that anyone can improve their acting, dramatic and vocal skills swiftly, given the right tools for the job, and I tailor my approach to each student in line with their experience, abilities, requirements and aspirations. I`m passionate about my work, and am friendly, easy going, and empathetic.
