All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
There is, however, one thing that is even more important to us - they have to be fantastic tutors! So in addition to their specialist expertise, you will also find that our tutors are warm, friendly, supportive and fun.
We pride ourselves in carefully recruiting the best specialist tutors in the industry. We're sure you'll have a great experience with them.
