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. Tinker was incredible. My son loved his ability to break things down in such away that it took the pressure out the equation and it felt like he was talking to a genuine friend. Mr. Tinker is extremely knowledgeable and very gifted in what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for not only a teacher but a friend and mentor for this industry.

Total joke, bad communication! He forgot about our first lesson and then "went out of town" for a month the day before our second. I was so excited to work with him but he does not value his students time. Would not recommend

Didn't show up for the first lesson and took a day to get back to me. Then when I rescheduled he cancelled the next 3 lessons. I saved money for the lessons and was very excited to work with him.

Have an interest in acting? Need help with college prep? Just wanna have some theatrical fun? I'm the coach for you! I'm a junior BFA acting major at Millikin University offering really affordable lessons since I'm new to teaching! I'm trained in movement, scene study, monologue work, and some voice work. The craft of acting is a lifelong journey. I'm still learning some things, but I'd love to share what I know if you're wanting to start your journey or want some feedback on a tricky monologue!

Currently working on achieving my dreams, but I figured helping others along the way would be a fun way to honor the craft of acting. To me, acting is selfless. Acting shouldn't be a van

I’ve been in class with Jamie and I’ve seen her perform onstage. Her performances are impeccable! She knows how to access vulnerability in every character, while still delivering with power. I’ve learned a lot from watching her act. I would definitely recommend her as an instructor.

For me as an actor, the benefit of a great coach or director has always been that they've helped me reach places in my work I couldn't have achieved on my own. As a coach myself, I'm most thrilled by those small (or monumental!) breakthroughs that my students and I discover together during the coaching process. The cool thing is that I've found the progress my students make in their craft will often inspire me to new heights in my own. (A bonus to already enriching work)!

If you want to develop new material for upcoming auditions, hone and refresh (or completely change) your monologues, or simply work on the craft of acting, I can help. I work to gear your coaching sessions to the goals you need to achieve, offering an experience created around what you need to work on and want to learn.

With a BFA in Acting and Directing, an MFA in Classical Acting, and over 20 years of professional acting experience in the theatre and on-camera, I can offer tools for your tool belt ...

"I came to Jennie with basically 0 acting experience and wow am I glad I went to Jennie. She is the most kind, compassionate and supportive instructor out there. Her knowledge was vast and whether you want to get into film, Tv, theater or just wanna get out of your shell, Jennie is the instructor for you.

She helped me every step of the way to hone my craft, work on monologues, mock audition and so much more. Jennie’s way of teaching makes you think differently and she truly brings out the best side of you. Plus Jennie is so supportive going at my speed giving constructive feed back and making me feel great about my progress.

Lastly, Jennie was understanding of my time and worked around my schedule as well as the “homework” or “things to work on” she gave. Jennie was flexible and the Zoom calls worked incredibly well during this pandemic. Every day I would get off of our call with a smile on my face feeling accomplished!

Overall I would say Jennie was helpful, knowledgeable and a great instructor. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to start acting and have no idea where to begin."
