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.

I offer the unique combination of the magical memory of our body and the imagination of our sub-conscious.
Our imagination must enliven the world from the page. The mere ink must be transformed into living, breathing life; through our imagination. Not in an ordinary way, but from the depth of our sub-conscious that brings the world so true to life that our five senses respond to it as if it’s real.
And our incredible body.
Our body that remembers everything. Every joy and every trauma, from before the time we understood consciousness or developed memory. our body remembers so much that it is an endless supply for our art. Any part you come across, any scene, any moment ... your body has known that. It has been there. We don’t remember, but our bodies do.
I offer the unique combination of the two !

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am ...

I can help you with script analysis, breaking down beats and emotionally tapping into your character to create a well rounded arc for whomever you're playing. I can help you with dialects, inflection, projection, or camera technique. I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or work on a role you've been cast in. I'm also happy to do scenework with anyone else if you need some extra eyes on your rehearsal :)

Our first lesson with Mallory was wonderful. We were looking for a music coach for our 11 year old, who has interests in vocals, guitar, and writing pop songs. Mallory has skills in all these areas, and did a fantastic job listening to our son’s goals, dividing the 1st lesson into manageable chunks, and keeping things fun for a tween. And my son was blown away by Mallory’s fluency in pop music!!

Mallory is great- patient and explains things in a super easy way to understand and process.

"Constructs a safe, experimental, artistic environment where she nurtures and pushes you when needed. She is an excellent instructor in meisner repetition; being able to help the student access vulnerability in places they've never experienced. Knows and practices a copious amount of acting styles and techniques. From my experience working with her as a director/acting advisor, she is keen and eager to work on the human connection between actors, accessing emotions through extreme physicalization and stepping out of comfort zones, and experimenting with a variety of text to express various stories."

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
