Whatever your level of skill or experience Tuirenn’s one on one tuition can point you in the right direction.

Please note: working with an acting coach means you will get very specific and highly critical feedback. This is an important part of the coaching: it will make YOU better at what you do!

Where Is Tuirenn Based?

Tuirenn provides one-on-one acting coaching sessions across Cheshire, South and Central Manchester and Staffordshire.

He is based in Macclesfield in Cheshire, but to provide individual actor training he is prepared to travel to Birmingham, London and Leeds. 

Usually, he will work with you in your own home (and travel to you is factored into his rates up to the first 25 miles from Macclesfield). If you would prefer to work elsewhere, this can be discussed at the time of booking a session.

Actor Coaching for All Needs

Regardless of your current level of ability, Tuirenn will provide you with support and rigorous development coaching on the skills you need. 

In a nutshell, Tuirenn offers…

COACHING on auditions, including script breakdown; character development, including finding depth in character and script.

SCRIPT breakdown, including actioning your text, finding the subtext in film and TV sides as well as monologues.

MONOLOGUE work, including clear guidance in finding the right piece for your drama school audition from his extensive collection and carefully chosen to show you at your best.

EXAM PREPARATION work, providing you with excellent tuition in your exam pieces for all major drama exam bodies. From LAMDA to Trinity College London, Tuirenn will support you in the development of your pieces.

Don't want to work alone?

Most sessions with Tuirenn are on a one-to-one basis. These are private lessons.

However, if you’d like to work with an associate or friend then he would be happy to see two of you at once – at no extra cost (if there are more than two of you, this would be a class and the rate for this would need to be negotiated).

About booking a coaching session...

Individual acting coaching sessions are very flexible and Tuirenn can usually see you during the day, in the evening or at weekends. As he also works freelance in the theatre industry (as a director) Tuirenn’s availability depends on his current schedule, so you will just need to find a mutually convenient time and day.
