I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia has been helping me with my acting for a little while now and I already can see my own improvement! She always gives me tips, pointers and corrections during our time but in a way where I feel supported! Her constructive feedback is always helpful and she is so encouraging when I actually nail a scene. She recently helped me with a self tape and I have to say, with her guidance I think it was my best acting to date! I would highly recommend Julia!
Kerri
My teenage daughter has been taking online lessons with Julia for months now. She couldn't' be happier. We are so lucky to have found her!
Jon
Julia was the best instructor I could have asked for, being that I just started. She helped me understand the process in acting and helped me work on a lot of monologues to get better and find exactly what I want to do. Always punctual and was easy to reschedule if I had any days I couldn't make it. If you're looking for a good teacher to help you and you're just starting or even experienced she's definitely the choice.

I'm new here! If you're looking to work in TV and film, I teach all about the acting industry! I having decades of experience, having earned my SAG/AFTRA card in 1984! I've worked on over 1,000 TV/ film projects and over 300 commercials!

I give students the correct inside information about the industry, how to get booked, necessary tools, and include insider tips and leads to fast track their careers!

As an Adjunct University Professor for six years, and 15 years teaching at entertainment schools in both CA. and NYC, I enjoyed guiding students to successful careers in television, film, and TV commercials!

I offer classes in proven techniques for TV/film acting, (Screen Acting) as well as courses that are specific for TV commercial acting (Acting in TV Commercials). There IS a big difference between stage, screen, and TV commercial acting, so each course teaches a separate and proven technique!

I also offer classes in cold reading and auditioning skills (Cold Reading Course) ...

I have known Gina for almost 30 years. She has worked in the industry for as long as I've known her, and has always been a person of integrity, grace, and professionalism. While I haven't been her student, I would highly recommend her for anyone who is considering working in this very demanding and competitive industry. You will find her vast experience and ethics to be invaluable.

I took several of Gina’s classes in 2018 and 2019 and I’m happy I did! She taught me excellent acting techniques as well as important information about the industry which I don’t think I’d get somewhere else. I was 100% more confident and skilled in my ability as an actor after her classes and highly recommend her!
Dr. James Monaghan
Gina is an outstanding instructor. She brings her extensive experience in Hollywood to the classroom in a manner that is accessible, informative and rigorous. She demonstrated in a wide variety of acting courses an approachability, a genuineness and a care for our university students that was truly remarkable.

Our acting program was new, and her duties included developing new curriculum, curricular materials and assessment tools for several classes. She did this splendidly well, taking her vast experience and creating courses that were described as among the best that students had ever taken.

Indeed, her student course evaluations were consistently very high, among the best at our university. She was the epitome of a professional, who brought her deep experience to students with a real-world sensibility as well as a commitment to the highest ethical standards.
