Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Acting Teacher

Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, and Meisner Acting Technique for Theatre/Camera is taught in private and group classes. All students are exposed to each technique and Rachel sees which technique each student responds to the most. Once the student and Rachel are able to identify the technique, Rachel continues to use the terminology of that technique for the remainder of the time the student is in lessons. Students eventually are able to play roles truthfully and realistically, even if the roles are opposite of the student's own personality.

About Rachel

Rachel fully background checked by three different companies and is also fingerprinted. Rachel's private studio is where you not only learn healthy technique, but how to become a self-sufficient artist. Professional training and customized programs in singing and acting technique. All learning s

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!

Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

Private Acting Teacher

While acting is a magnificent art, it is also a labyrinth of techniques and ideologies. Throughout time there have been many disagreements about the best way to approach the teaching of acting, but I believe that no matter which way you enter the maze, we are all moving towards the same goal; that is to live truthfully in imaginary circumstances. The craft of acting can falter into a personal nature, however there are common terms and tools that can be learned to aid in achieving the universal goal that is set in front of us. I therefore am bound to teach and specify the rudimentary tools that I have come to consider profoundly vital to the integrity of any serious actor, many of which are drastically overlooked by most.

In An Actor Prepares Stanislavski writes, “… A nagging critic can drive an actor mad and reduce him to a state of helplessness. Search for falseness only so far as it helps you to find truth. Don’t forget that the carping critic can create more falsehood on ...

Alyssa is the best. I had a little less than a month to pick two contrasting monologues for an audition. Alyssa sent me a monologue that’s was absolutely amazing. Alyssa is patient, knowledgeable, and a ton of fun. Completely down to earth. (Judgment free zone). I would refer Alyssa to any and everybody. Amazing experience.

Online Acting Teacher

I have a variety of specialties to offer prospective students. I base my lessons depending on what each individual students needs and then tailor our time based on those needs. I believe that acting is unique for each person and that there is no one method for each. Popular work I do is: text analysis, chakra work, Michael Chekhov image-center work, physical acting, clowning, and moment-by-moment particularization. I also work songs and Musical Theater pieces. I look forward to seeing how we can work together!

Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
