Susan S. Owings Mills, MD

Maybe you're curious about acting. Maybe you're serious about it. Maybe you just need to come out of your shell a little bit. I've taught 'em all, with great success. I look forward to meeting you.

About Susan

Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. Voice – Anyone can sing. I you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. If you're a serious singer, no matter what kind of singing you want to do, you should train classically. It's just the best way to train those delicate muscles. I am an excellent coach, at any level. I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back. However, as an instructor, I am better with beginners. Speaking – Ever lost your voice because you were talking too much? Every professional speaker I know of has. YOU DON'T HAVE TO. It's ...

Larry is an incredible teacher. I was never bored at any lessons, Larry had me thinking hard every lesson, challenging the way I looked at history. I feel like not only did I learned what happened in history but I came out of it looking through a different paradigm.

I recommend him to everyone.

Writing · In studio
As an adult student who has struggled with creative writing, Larry has been instrumental in opening a whole new world of self expression for me. I highly recommend him for any student who wishes to either grasp fundamental skills or for the one who simply wishes to polish their own.

Additionally Larry has been able to introduce me to Shakespeare, a life long interest of mine... one which has always frustrated me do to my lack of understanding, in a non threatening, non stressful way.

Thank you Larry.
Ben S. Baltimore, MD

The best quote I can give an actor is from my buddy Bill, Lol

'All the world's a stage!'

Once you really internalize that and believe it then the real art of acting will be released to you.

About Ben

Hello Scholars, My name is Ben S. and my mission is to make learning fun. I learned a very long time ago that if you can engage a student in a fun and fancy free way the potential for educating will be at its highest. I developed several methods from working in a Montessori environment that aide me in capturing the best way to reach and teach each student. If you have an open mind and a willingness to learn new ways to solve old problems we will get along just fine.

Sara H. Washington, DC

I have a BA in Theatre Arts from Virginia Tech. Though at the time I focused on performance, the program allowed us to learn extensively about design, business, and directing. Currently I'm in my third year of teaching International Baccalaureate Theatre, which focuses on a variety of performance methods, theories, and units of study.

About Sara

I received a BA (Theatre Arts) and MA (English Education and Curriculum) from Virginia Tech in 2004/2005, respectively. From 2005 to 2007, I taught high school English in VA. In 2007 I continued teaching high school English at an International Baccalaureate (IB) magnet school in Rockville, MD, where I still teach. For the past seven years I have taught honors English in the IB Middle Years Program. For the past three years, I have also taught IB Theatre as part of the IB Diploma Program. Additionally, I have taught AP Language and Composition for the past six years. Outside of my regular teaching job, for the past seven years I have taught in private enrichment programs (both classes and one-on-one tutoring) focusing on SAT and ACT prep, as well as magnet test prep, creative writing, and ...

I took freshman English and IB Theatre with Mrs. Hashem-Liles. She really goes out of her way to make sure that her students are engaged and interested in the material. Her dedication to her students and her passion for education are clear. As a freshman, she showed me that anyone's writing can be improved (no matter how good you think you are!) As a senior, she became a mentor and guide, especially in theatre. I consistently left her class thinking that I had learned something new and interesting. Sometimes I wish I could go back to high school, if only to take her class again! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor, as she is willing and eager to take the time needed to help all of her students.

Aside from being a lovely person, Sara helped me learn to write effective, well-composed papers by breaking the process down and shattering the concept that writing an essay has to be a daunting experience. I still cherish the enthusiasm she brought as an educator, and continually find myself applying some of the writing/analytical techniques I learned with her to my collegiate assignments.

About Noah

Noah Silas Smith Noah Silas Smith (Baltimore, United States) creates performances and films. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle class values, Smith often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation. His performances are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete ages and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in performance. With Plato’s allegory of the cave in mind, he makes work that deals with the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented.The work tries to express this with the help ...
