Private Acting Teacher

I am a lifelong actor and passionate teacher-- and I would love to take your work to the next level!

As a teaching artist, I have worked with students age 5-88 on audition preparation, role development, and physical and vocal technique. I am a certified Yoga teacher, and I love to draw on principles of mindfulness in performance preparation.

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to silly vocal exercises, we will develop a system that works for you. Best of all: we'll have a blast doing it.

My daughter loved the session. Thank you!
Chad S.
A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

I began acting at the age of 4 where I worked on high-level projects such as Dark Water, Alien vs. Predator – Requiem, and ABC’s Invasion. While working on these projects, I was able to participate in the film production process and work with distinguished creative professionals. I developed my skills in the performing arts through years of training in audition practices, cold readings, improvisation, and voice-over. I also took acting classes at UCSD renowned Theater & Dance Department where I developed my skills for working in a theatrical setting.

I believe, wholeheartedly, that with the right teaching and encouragement, anyone can learn to become an actor. Both children and adult beginners will have a great time playing acting "games", (i.e. exercises) that encourage creativity and freedom of artistic expression.
