Private Acting Teacher

Hi! I'm Marissa and I'm a professional NYC-based actor, writer, and director. BFA: NYU. / We'll work as a team to reach your performance goals, whether that be for an audition, for a show, or for just for yourself. We'll call attention to breath, vocal technique, physicality and movement, and intention and script/monologue analysis. However, lessons will be catered to your unique self.

My approach to teaching my students is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Rather, I carefully examine each students' strengths and interests, and create lesson plans that combine those to address areas of improvement and holistic growth. A student knows themself best; my mission is to assist them on their journey towards bringing their gifts and talents to the forefront.

As a professional actor, writer for the stage and film/tv, and director, my lessons come with a unique perspective that holistically elevates your acting.

Marissa is one of the best people to help with essay writing. She really helps me think critically about what I am writing and is a great editor! Marissa has helped me perfect research papers, creative writing pieces, and even short essays.
Rachel
Marissa is a brilliant acting coach! She truly takes the time to help her students understand the art of acting and prepare their scenes. 10/10 would recommend!
Kat Luciano
Marissa is super attentive to detail, especially because she vocalizes the questions that should be asked when breaking down the writing process. She thinks critically about how every part of the piece is suppose to connect with and progress the story/thesis forward. Because she has also been exposed to different kinds of writing styles and formats (playwright, screenplay structures, essays, etc.), she is well versed in the distinct criteria it takes to complete each. Also, it helps that she is a total sweetheart :)

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.
