Tom Sawyer has earned the distinction of being selected as a Top Acting Coach by

"Tom has an amazing ability to create a relaxed, safe, humorous and supportive environment even through Zoom.

His guidance and support came to be absolutely invaluable for me in my work and helped me with my transition from the stage to the world of screen acting. As a gender-nonconforming actor I also felt seen, heard and supported by Tom, which is extremely valuable in an industry that is still finding it’s way to work with people with queer-identities."

with tom sawyer

Taking a scene off the page in a short time is an essential skill for an actor.

Making instinctual bold choices is what sets apart one actor from another.

Working with page and partner we find what is already there in the scene and play with all the elements, relationship, backstory etc.

Best part is that it's all captured with a multi camera set up and you get the footage after class.
