Good chemistry is vital

They need to be experienced


Do some research on potential coaches before you decide on one. Find someone who’s experienced in the ‘biz, who’s been in front of the camera and behind it. If you’re interested in theatre, find someone who’s jazzed about theatre. If you want to work on camera, find a coach who’s lived it.

Embrace what they have to offer and give the class a go


You've prepared, so now it's time to see how they work. When you get there, have fun. Meet the teacher and get to know the other students. Ask questions and start working with the other students. You can learn a lot not only from how the teacher works with you, but also from how they treat everyone else in the class.


Don’t focus on price alone

When you and your acting coach click, you know you've found the right one. Don't just think about price—if anything, just consider how reasonably priced they are based on what they offer versus other coaches around. If you have a budget, stick to it and meet people who can afford the same things you can. But don't just pick an acting coach based on how much money you'll save. There are many more things to think about!
