Private Acting Teacher

An early career teacher! Experienced with audition coaching, scene work, and Shakespeare. I primarily use the Miesner approach to acting and physicalization tools to bring out the truth in every story. I am upbeat and dedicated to working with my students at whatever level they are at, to help them achieve their potential. I believe that actors are the pioneers of the human heart, they take the deep dive for those who are not ready yet. I am the perfect teacher for both those just getting into acting to more experienced actors needing some tune up!

Constructs a safe, experimental, artistic environment where she nurtures and pushes you when needed. She is an excellent instructor in meisner repetition; being able to help the student access vulnerability in places they've never experienced. Knows and practices a copious amount of acting styles and techniques. From my experience working with her as a director/acting advisor, she is keen and eager to work on the human connection between actors, accessing emotions through extreme physicalization and stepping out of comfort zones, and experimenting with a variety of text to express various stories.

I was in musical theater for most of my life and have studied several methods. I've studied the Chekhov Technique specifically and have participated in many monologue workshops over the years. I'm especially good with musical theater, having most of my collegiate studies being in music.

Anna is a wonderful teacher! This is my first experience taking singing lessons, and she has been so patient with me, and I have already learned so much in just two lessons. She is very knowledgeable about the voice and gives clear, easy-to-follow instruction. I'm looking forward to continuing learning from her!

Great first lesson! Teresa is very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Looking forward to many more lessons to come!
Kiri
Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!
Brittany
She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
