How to Choose an Acting Coach

A good Acting coach can really make a huge difference in your Acting career and development. 

But in the words of a Voiceover coach I once had “some coaches never want to let you go”. 

It is important to choose someone who is more interested in your development and willing to part without issue instead of someone who wants to keep you as a cash-cow. 


Before choosing an Acting coach ask yourself the following questions:

1) Do they have a plan over the next number of weeks, or do they have no plan with no concrete end?

2) Is working with this person going to help me develop my reel?

3) Am I being led by their low prices or by what they have to offer me?

4) Do I ever feel gaslighted when speaking to them?

5) Are they willing to do a trial session?

6) What skills do they have and what skills do they not have?

7) How can their skills help me?

8) Do they have any negative Google reviews?

9) What do others who’ve studied under them say?

10) Am I being lef by their popularity or by our chemistry?

11) How do they accept payment?
