Private Method Acting Teacher

I've been a professional actor for over 30 years. My work has ranged from classical theatre, world premiere plays, to guest starring roles in television and film including Modern Family, Scandal, CSI Los Angeles and many more.

I co founded an award winning regional theatre in the Northwest that is still running strong. Last year, the film I directed, Here Awhile starring Anna Camp, and Joe Lo Truglio, was released to wide acclaim.

Throughout my career as an actor who has performed with 6 Academy Award winners, I have remained committed to sharing my knowledge and experience with other actors.

I received my BFA at Southern Oregon University where I worked at the famed Oregon Shakespeare festival. My MFA comes form the Alabama Shakespeare festival. I taught acting at Cornell University and Willamette University as well as teaching privately for the last 20 years.

The industry is growing and changing all the time, and what makes working with me particularly special is that I'm ...

Tim's class is a great resource for anyone looking to improve their acting skills, audition technique, or general understanding of the industry. He does a wonderful job of translating his extensive experience into practical advice for other actors. Every week, he provides individualized feedback to each workshop participant on every aspect of their submission. I've learned so much about specific techniques for television and film acting, the practical and technical considerations when putting together a self-tape, as well as just general professionalism and industry standards. Thanks to this workshop, I feel much more confident and prepared for what a career in acting entails.
Liz
This is a very useful class. I've learned a lot about making self tapes that I didn't know before - from technical considerations to acting skills. The class is friendly, supportive, and useful.
Lauren
I love working with Tim! He consistently guides me to do my best possible work, and I always walk away feeling confident that I crushed the audition, whatever it is. And booking several jobs after getting coached by him certainly doesn't hurt!

Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

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.
Paula P.
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.

Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him.

"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"
