I have been acting live on stage, as well as films, radio for decades. My favorite role was playing the lead male - George Bailey in Its A Wonderful Life. I am also a stage and film director, and love directing actors because I understand their needs. I find that acting on stage of course, requires a slightly different approach than film acting.

An example of helping actors would be when I directed an actress in a play - she had this moment when she had to let out a loud scream. But she just couldn't quite do it in rehearsals. So I had her come an hour early next time (you never want to correct actors in public) and asked her to shout and yell as loud as she could for me. And I told her she needed to hear herself remove all apprehension and think of the worst moment of her life. Well she screamed a blood curdling scream over and over and over. And I knew - she was NOW ready .

About Jeff

I think the ability to evoke emotion and a connection to the audience is so important. Comedians are often a step ahead because they can instantly gauge how well they are making a connection by the laughter they produce. That's not to say this translates to good acting technique.

Our company Alignment Healthcare has been taking advantage of Take Lesson's dance classes for several months now, instructed virtually by Jordan Wentz. We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jordan Wentz, not only did she help resurrect my acting dreams from the grave, but she as well, with the proper tools given, helped me get all that much closer to the stage, and for that I am forever thankful.

Confidence in acting is all about finding your own process, discovering the best things that work for YOU. Whether you have an audition you're working towards, a job you're preparing for, or you want to flex your acting muscle through new material, let's hash it out!

When I was cast as a supporting lead in an HBO show years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I came from a theatre background and had never been on a set before - I learned by watching and asking the actors around me who had been doing it for years. Now, after nearly a decade in this business, I've found some things that help me that can hopefully help you. This should be fun! Feel free to check out my IMDB page for a more detailed overview.

About Meg

I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied Acting and Music Theatre. I have spent nearly a decade working in theatre, TV, film, and commercials. Credits include: HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Peacock's Mr. Mercedes, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, ABC's Nashville, and FX's American Horror Story.

It honestly does not get better than Meg when it comes to acting coaches. She is a powerhouse in her own professional career and she brings all that experience to your work. She is kind, fun, encouraging, and genuinely interested in who you are as an actor/what you want out of your career. You cannot get more of an expert than Meg.

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

"I have been coached by acting instructors since I was a little kid and I've never worked with someone who had more understanding of the acting craft than David Tom. I've never seen an acting coach simplistically break down technique for me to understand the way David did. I am so greatful he has shared his knowledge that must have taken years to master with me."

"Maria has coached me for every audition and part I have gotten for the past 5 years. She was referred to me by another one of her students. She is worth every penny. I'm moving to LA as I've just been cast as a series regular on a new ABC comedy but will be coaching with Maria online. I will be forever her student. She's a complete genius."

He has been very patient with our technology troubles and is a great teacher. The online format has actually worked very well. We highly recommend!"
