I have been teaching acting since 2013 and use a combination of tools and techniques from many of the well known acting theories. Through exploration, you will learn how to use the "acting fundamentals" (given circumstances, personalization, actions/tactics) to discover an honest connection to the script.

NOTE: All in-person students are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Bill does a great job helping you use your voice to communicate powerfully and clearly!

He has vast amount of knowledge and experience and I enjoyed taking lessons with him.

I would definitely recommend taking lessons with Bill if someone wants to grow in speaking more powerfully and clearly.
Patricia Tyler
Very thorough and knowledgeable!
Jake
This is my first time taking online classes, and Bill has made it a fantastic experience. He is clear and concise in his lessons and provides homework to practice on one's own, in addition to practice during class time. In the short time I've been taking lessons, I've become much more comfortable and confident with my voice, have been able to learn about the voice acting industry as a whole, and take steps working towards my desired career. Bill is a great instructor, and I look forward to continuing my classes with him.

Very helpful, and beyond detail focused to get the most success out of someone.

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!

Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!

Acting is a natural form of exploration we see in children around the world. Imagination, pretending, imitation, mimicry, and character-play extending into the real world can create safety for expression and experimentation.

My playful approach to acting is based on 30 years of experience, a degree from Seattle’s premier BFA program, and five years’ studying playful human interaction with their environment. Applying it to scripts and performance is my particular delight.

Together we work to embody characters, enjoy making messes, and elevate human expression to its most entertaining form. We’ll borrow from improvisation and a variety of artistic disciplines. We’ll create something memorable, profound, and delightful together.

All ages and experience levels.

I've studied how people learn and how people play, along with 25 years of professional and performance experience, and I focus it entirely on you.

I've been teaching Acting for 8 years professionally and my students have gone on to be lead roles in feature films, supporting roles in feature films, and cast in stage plays. I am a very hands on teacher. I like to get into the character with the actor. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to dissect and embody a character and as time goes on you'll be able to perform two one-minute monologues for a TV/Film agent. If you already have an agent you will be coached for auditions. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mr. T. walked me through a step by step process of creating and producing a film. He did a deep dive into not only each stage but the physiological aspect of the filmmaking process. I highly recommended.
Leslie Jones
Mr. Tinker is an incredible instructor. He not only provided me insight on different techniques but he gave me confidence to believe in myself. I highly recommend you work with Mr. Tinker.
Emily
DON’T EVER loan LaMarcus Tinker money or invest in his productions as you will never get it back. I loaned him money to put in escrow for a named actor for a film he was producing. Mr. Tinker not only didn’t pay the money back per our contract, he used some of the money for “other things” even though the loan was specifically and only for escrow. Mr. Tinker never communicated to me that the money would be used for something other than what was agreed and never informed me I would not be paid back as per the contract. It wasn’t until I kept pushing him for the money that he admitted he didn’t have it. Several people invested in this production and not one investor has been paid back nor has he informed the investors that he is no longer producing the film. In fact, as of Feb, 2021 he advised some investors that things were proceeding as planned and he was trying to secure actors. This is a complete lie!

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …
