I’ve been taking online singing lessons with Roberta since the beginning of COVID. She’s an excellent teacher and is very patient and kind. I highly recommend her!
Colleen B.
I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

I am a professional actor located in the new York city area. I received my musical theater degree from Lees-McRae College and have taken any and every opportunity to learn more in my field. I trained Stella Adler School of Acting to freshen up and sharpen my skills during quarantine.
I have taken a variety of master classes as well as attended theatre conferences across the world.
I would love to help others create art through the wonderful experience of acting.
I love helping others break down their monologues and scripts, helping them find a deeper meaning in material and various ways to portray it. I have a lot of material to hand out if someone does not have any monologues to work on. I also work on Improv, scene work, mime, and auditioning skills!
Please reach out to me for any questions, I would love to work with you!

Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.

I have been teaching acting since 2013 and use a combination of tools and techniques from many of the well known acting theories. Through exploration, you will learn how to use the "acting fundamentals" (given circumstances, personalization, actions/tactics) to discover an honest connection to the script.

"After my first film audition, in as many years, it was quite evident I needed an acting instructor. For months, I looked high and low to find the right one. I wanted an instructor who could challenge me, yet in a nurturing manner. An instructor who can speak confidently about the craft. Above all, an instructor you look forward to seeing every session. Jeremy Kruse is all that and then some.

Within weeks of pairing up, my acting style/delivery is far more conversational. Plus, I’m more at ease when working to find the true essence of a character to develop and make my own.

I always walk away from Jeremy’s sessions learning something new. Jeremy’s constant encouragement has propelled my confidence, as an actor, to another level.

Initially, I wasn’t really into the idea of taking acting classes via FaceTime. The idea sounded so impersonal and potentially distracting, not with Jeremy. It's as if he's working with you, face-to-face, in a studio.

In addition to acting, Jeremy has been so supportive with my first attempt in writing a screenplay. He's such a creative influence.

The secret is out, Jeremy Kruse is the "Best Instructor Ever"! Working with him makes my dreams of becoming an accomplished actor a reality. Thanks Jeremy!"

She has a well rounded teaching style that pulls inspiration from both renowned teachers of the past (Stanislavsky, Adler, Meisner, etc.) and themes found in our current events (politics, pop culture, etc.) She has trained me in anything and everything from the basics of stage acting, improv, film, script writing, and even how to method act safely. I have been awarded multiple Superior marks while competing under her teaching and am now working in my community theatres thank to her preparation. In her classes, I not only grew as an artist, but as a person as well. I honestly couldn’t recommend her more!"

I've been with her for over a year already and have no plans of stopping. Thank you so much, Kathryn. :)"

How Do Actors Cry?  

Actors often draw their audience in through strong and seemingly authentic emotions.  Perhaps you watched a particularly emotional scene in a movie or play and wondered to yourself whether or not the emotion the actor was showing was truthful.  Perhaps they were crying and you could see the tears falling.  Are those real tears?  The answer is, probably, yes. Crying on command is tricky business and like everything else, takes preparation and practice. However, there are some tips and tri …
