Stephen is an amazing teacher. He has been super patient, thorough, and clear as I have just recently picked up a guitar for the first time. He does a great job and covering music theory as well as chords, strumming, scales, and more. His musical background is very well rounded and he uses great teaching techniques to get all parts of the brain involved. Highly recommend!

Private Film Acting Teacher

I've been fortunate enough to study with some of the top acting coaches and teachers around the world! This has given me a unique arsenal of “actor’s tools” that I’m happy to share with you. I love helping actors get extreme clarity on a scene and their character in record time. I also give you fun, fast, tips and tricks on character discovery, memorization, on-camera techniques and audition mastery that you can use for a lifetime. Whether it’s for an audition, agent or manager reading or casting director meet and greet, I love helping actors bring scenes to life in ways they hadn’t thought of before!

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

I'm so excited that I finally got a chance to rehearse with Hunter! And she was absolutely AMAZING! Completely opened me up to the vulnerability in the scene. Can't wait to work with her again in the future!
Pedro
Hunter shared masterful insights and asked intriguing questions that set me up for a one-of-a-kind self-tape, all while being gentle and supportive. Will definitely book again!
Elizabeth
What can I say? Hunter is the best! It’s true what the other reviews say - she is patient and friendly and made me feel completely comfortable from the very first lesson. I started taking accent reduction lessons because I am required to do a lot of presentations related to my job, and people were having difficulty understanding me. I speak 3 languages but English is not my first and this was becoming a problem. Hunter has this down to a science and knows exactly what problems you’re going to encounter even before you get there. Lessons are set with exercises and drills, but she is also very good at incorporating “real world” materials that related specifically to my profession. This alone was extremely helpful. I reached my goals in half the time I thought it would take - I am just so grateful and impressed. No more embarrassing or frustrating presentations, and people have even stopped asking me “so where are you from?”! I can't recommend Hunter enough for anyone who wants to improve the way they communicate with the world.

Online Film Acting Teacher

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production C

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

Online Film Acting Teacher

I was offered full rides to Yale, NYU, and UCSD and earned my MFA in Acting from UCSD in 2009. Since then, I've guest-starred and recurred on 20+ network TV shows, led several films, performed on Broadway and at the top regional theaters in the country. I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University and NYU.
Whether you're looking to learn the fundamentals of acting, sharpen your auditions pieces for BFA or MFA programs, or book more professional gigs by improving your self-tapes and in-room auditions for every medium, I will deliver for you.
I love helping actors grow as much as performing myself. Together, we will bolster your imagination and toolbox to arrive at further truth and dynamics in storytelling.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
