Private Film Acting Teacher

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

Private Film Acting Teacher

I'm a freelance theater director currently working in NYC and throughout the country. I'm an acting coach, teach directing for the stage and dramaturgy/text analysis for actors, directors, and designers. I have over 15 years of teaching experience at such institutions as Williams, Yale, New School, Columbia, Fordham, and Primary Stages ESPA.

I will focus my classes on auditioning, callbacks, cold reading audition skills, grad school auditions, and text analysis and dramaturgy. I'm also available to coach and consult with aspiring theater directors and public speaking clients. I would be happy to customize my classes to each student's individual needs and goals.

I received my MFA in Directing from Yale School of Drama and my BFA in Acting from the University of the Arts.

About Jackson

As an established theater director and teacher, I am very fortunate to be working continuously in New York and across the country from New York to California and in between. Actors are a part of my daily life as I audition and collaborate with them for a living. I often have new directors as assis

Jackson is a great director/coach. When you are working you can trust that Jackson is fully listening to you as you the actor and you the character. She knows how to push in a way that works for you and will get you where you need to be. I trust Jackson and highly recommend working with her.
Kevin
I had the privilege of studying stage directing with Jackson Gay at Yale. Jackson has a remarkable way of bringing out students' individual artistic and creative sensibilities. In scene workshops, she gives highly practical advice for working with actors to shape an overall dramatic vision. She also reinforces this instruction by relating her own professional experiences, highlighting what has been effective. Her guidance in script analysis is very clear, and showed me how to fully understand characters' dramatic objectives before going into rehearsals with actors.

As well, Jackson incorporated invaluable practical career advice into the class, which is often hard to find. One of her exercises for this was to pair us with another student and have a mock "writer-director" meeting, where the writer was considering hiring the director. This was a really helpful window into the professional process, which has given me an important springboard to communicate my own ideas in the production of new work.

Jackson Gay’s teaching applies across theater disciplines — for instance, my work in theater is primarily as a composer and lyricist. She showed me how to look at the big picture of a play or musical, giving me the insight to write in a way that is dramatically cogent, engaging, and entertaining.
Sheila-Joon
Jackson Gay is masterful at guiding the actor to find their own authentic voice. She has a laser sharp focus imbued with empathy, that simultaneously put me at ease and helped me find my edge, in a way no other director has. More than anything, she helped empower me to make my own bold choices within a vast array of styles, so that my work was informed from a deep and genuine place (rather than an impersonation or a desire to please). I always feel safe to explore my edge with Jackson, but never humored if something isn't working. She's honest. It's rare to find guidance both so kind and so sharp. Jackson Gay understands and loves actors, and that love comes through in her work.

Leslie is an incredible voice teacher. She is an upbeat , positive , fun teacher ! She has great educational information about vocal strategies and knows just how to get the right sounds out of me! She is also incredibly encouraging and a great communicator about how I can improve. She has made a huge difference in my singing!
Sergio
My little cousin received voice lessons from Leslie. We looked everywhere for a professional teacher who would work with our busy schedule. No luck, til we found Leslie. She was the perfect fit! She is extremely passionate with improving the gift of voice! In addition to her vast knowledge and professionalism, she is a joy to work with. My cousin absolutely enjoyed working with her; he’s shy and takes a while to loosen up to new people. I highly recommend Leslie for anyone who wishes to improve their gifts, and enjoy the learning experience she offers!

Online Film Acting Teacher

I was offered full rides to Yale, NYU, and UCSD and earned my MFA in Acting from UCSD in 2009. Since then, I've guest-starred and recurred on 20+ network TV shows, led several films, performed on Broadway and at the top regional theaters in the country. I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University and NYU.
Whether you're looking to learn the fundamentals of acting, sharpen your auditions pieces for BFA or MFA programs, or book more professional gigs by improving your self-tapes and in-room auditions for every medium, I will deliver for you.
I love helping actors grow as much as performing myself. Together, we will bolster your imagination and toolbox to arrive at further truth and dynamics in storytelling.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have been studying film acting for a few years. I have been a Musical Theatre performer for years and I am still studying singing, acting and dancing. I am still young and know what it feels to want to better yourself everyday, so I can relate to most learning students. I put a lot of importance to voice training, technique and acting warm-ups.

About Jennifer

Technique is something I have been studying for a while, and I am consistently learning what new techniques work for
