I teach the voice as a functional tool to be used for self expression and communication with others. If you've ever struggled with projection or vocal fatigue, developing the voice is for you. I believe the voice is best developed through singing, as it works the voice in a way no other medium can.

Whether you are preparing for a presentation, learning lines for a play, or trying to maintain vocal health for everyday speaking tasks, you have a place in my studio.

Interest in learning salsa? Want to impress your friends? Or, is there a wedding coming up and you want to learn a partner-dancing? Maybe, you just want to improve on any basic skills or techniques?

My name is Andrew and I have been dancing for more than 7 years, starting with bboying in high school and then Latin dancing. I was a Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus during my college study, as well as joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport Team. Right now, I am offering private lesson to beginner and beginner-intermediate for salsa.

My lessons are catered in developing basic fundamental techniques and footwork. After the mastery of the basic fundamental technique and footwork, we will then work toward building patterns. My goal is to make sure my students are comfortable and confident enough in dancing to a full 3 mins songs. Throughout the courses, I will also introduce dance theory and music theory. By combining theories with body mechanic, I am striving to ...

We were a perfect match. I felt comfortable and she got the best out of me. Very relaxed and honest.
Tivia Lynnell
I for sure found Coach Alicia to be a knowledgeable actor, skilled as a teacher and more precisely as a voice-over coach. What takes Coach Alicia to another level is her personality, she’s engaging and warm even when telling you nope, that wasn’t it, your delivery wasn’t authentic or true to the character or the script. I became comfortable with her fairly quickly. She made our voice-over sessions feel like we were physically in the same space and not having class online. I so loved our improv time during our sessions and it’s so vital in voiceover work. I had a great time coach, thanks for helping me grow even further and for helping me discover where my weakness are so I can improve upon them and eventually eliminate them altogether.
Zahraa
Alicia is a wonderful person beside she is very professional in her work. She puts all of her heart in her work. I find her the best in acting coaching, voice acting, accent coach and great therapist. She helped me with managing my time. She is a very supportive person and basically mangling my mind. And I am looking forward to work with her in a long period.

I believe that acting can be used as a mechanism to free people's personalities and souls. I studied acting with the great acting teacher and working actor, Bill Hickey. I was taught to focus on the strengths of each individual. I am not rigid or doctrinaire when it comes to how a scene, monologue, or audition piece needs to be performed. I try to bring out the unique personality of whomever I am teaching so that they carry those lessons with them in whatever they do. The best acting teachers are the ones that encourage actors to bring their whole, individual life experiences to each role they play.

I want to optimize your potential and encourage you to let your imaginations run wild. I have acted in a wide variety of plays written by some of the worl

"I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!"

"I have already taken a lot of dance classes including Salsa, but only attending irregular group classes it was hard to retain the basics and my dancing got a little sloppy. Andrew got me up to date with basic fundamentals, all through this online course. I didn't have a lot of faith in the online format at first, but Andrew quickly gave me confidence he could teach me. He carefully observed each of my movements and was patient in helping me improve little by little. My girlfriend (who has a lot of salsa background and was embarrassed to dance with me prior to my classes with Andrew) noticed a huge improvement after I took just a few classes from Andrew. Thanks so much!"

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 …
