I've been teaching acting for 20+ years and my students have gone on to perform on both amateur and professional theatre. Within a few lessons, you'll be able to improve your performance, and over time you'll be able to build on my technique. I specialize in public speaking & theater, typically using scripts or speeches my students bring, but I have a library if needed. Lessons typically do not require any additional equipment. I love working with students of all ages & experience levels.
