Amazing teacher of the makeup arts! First lesson was for a six year old and she had so much fun! Alexandra is definitely knowledgeable well above the skills needed for a six year old but her teaching ability is what was really impressive.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

I love these lessons! I look forward to them every week. Jeremy is a cool down to earth guy and is easy to talk to which really helps if you're new to this kind of thing. He gives good feedback that really makes you see things from the outside in.

I have had a wonderful experience with Jeremy. I am completely new to acting- I am a physician and wanted to improve my public speaking skills and my "stage presence" so to speak. Jeremy has been incredibly helpful with this! He has done a great job of teaching me some basics about acting, and also tailoring the lessons to meet my goals. Also, it has been really fun! I highly recommend Jeremy as a teacher.

Hi friends! I'm a professional actor, director, and fight choreographer who has been working since I was ten years old. I left NYC two years ago after accepting a full-ride offer to earn my Master's degree in acting. I have one year left, and while I'm here, I am also teaching undergraduate acting. I'm formally trained in Stanislavski, Stella Adler, and Meisner, with training in many other methods as well, and I am able to work with you on whatever you would like, from basics, memorization, and diction all the way up to Meisner technique.

Because I started working when I was young, I love to teach kids as well. I spent three years on an international tour performing a one-woman show in elementary and middle schools, and I have led many high school workshops, so I love spending time with students of all ages.

Most importantly, if you work online with me, you will get to hang out with Belko, my one-year-old chihuahua. She's a better actor than all of us. I look forward to meeting you!

About Sarah

Hey friends! You're looking for acting lessons! That's amazing because being a professional actor means you are self-employed, and you have to be motivated to find your own work. By looking for a teacher, that's exactly what you're doing right now, meaning you already are living the life of an acto

Sarah is extremely helpful. She always took the time to be helpful but honest in her evaluation of what I was doing. Then she would help me find a way to make it better. I know that my skills have improved since working with her!

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is a passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Need less to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."

"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!"
