LaMarcus is not only a great actor but a wonderful coach. He listens. And that's one of the most important things an actor/actress can do. To listen and to react. He's one of the best there is at being natural, a quality lost on a lot of people these days. Trust in him and know that you are being coached by one of the BEST.

Mr. Tinker believed in my son and was so patient with him. I felt he truly cared about helping him develop his acting skills but also helping to develop his stage presence for theater class. He educated and mentored my son.

I give Lamarcus a 4 out of 5 stars not because he doesn't deserve 5 but because I hate I couldn't work with him actually in person one on one. We had to do everything through online communication. He taught me acting techniques and how to take a Directors instructions on set. He taught me how to just be myself. This guy has a contagious presence and passion to help individuals achieve there goals.

Mr. Tinker taught me that before I can be an actor. I must first master who I am as an individual. He helped me learn diffrent techniques for memorizing lines, creative tongue twisters and what it truly means to become a character. Not just in the physical but also mentally and emotionally.

I don't need to say much that has not already been said but Mr. Tinker's experience in this industry allowed him to not only teach me about filmmaking but open my eyes to the gifts I have inside of myself. His industry pedigree speaks for itself.

I gained so much technique from working with Mr. Tinker. He helped me overcome my fear of performing in front of the camera. He also broke down the difference between stage acting and film acting. Which I really need to learn in order to truly be successful at my craft. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Tinker.

My daughter has always shown that she loves to entertain. So, I began my research to find someone to help me mold her abilities. My daughter is only 10 years old. So, I reached out to Lamarcus because I had a fellow co-worker who's son was getting lessons from him. We talked and Lamarcus immediately started formulating a plan of action to help build my daughters skill level.

I started off not knowing anything about film production. I just had the desire and passion to want learn. LaMarcus Tinker broke things down thoroughly and accurately to me. He allowed me to ask questions and more importantly he encouraged it.

Mr. Tinker has been a true inspiration to me. He worked with me on coming out of my shell. He taught me how to give my character a back story beyond what the script describes. He taught me acting is not a hobby, it's a lifestyle. With this understanding and with the wealth of knowledge I learned during our session, I know I have a bright future in acting.
