I have taught acting, directing and audition skills for over 20 years to actors of all ages. I can offer a group class if you have friends with whom you would like to work with, or I can offer one-on-one coaching for your next audition or your next role. I can also coach you on on how to direct a play, or give you pointers on how to start your career. Ask me questions if you would like to learn more.

I love, love, love Samara's ability to scrutinize the text and guide me into creating finer, more compelling work. And the performance warm ups (relaxation/concentration) prepare me to deliver!

I can help you with script analysis, breaking down beats and emotionally tapping into your character. 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 :)

Dalia is excellent at working with anyone. She will meet you where you are and together you can find the journey of the scene, monologue, play. Dalia uses friendly language fabulously to describe highly complicated subjects. Dalia is great- I highly recommend

Dalia is a complete joy to work with. I come to her anytime I'm preparing for an audition. She make it so fun and makes you feel so comfortable that any nerves you may be experiencing just evaporate. She is able to see the bigger picture when working on a monologue/scene so the result is really detailed work. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to up their audition or acting game, because she really knows her stuff!

Online Acting Teacher

I have been an actor and director for over 20 years in a number of markets, including Seattle, Austin and Los Angeles. I am currently repped by Heyman Talent Agency in Columbus, OH.

I have coached actors and those who want to become actors for 15 years. I help you develop your potential into something tangible through learning about your dreams and goals. I tailor my style to each individual, to help them achieve the heights they want to reach as a performing artist.

I have trained L.A. actors, Ohio prison actors, comedians, musicians, juveniles, groups of actors, individuals and folks who have never taken an acting class before. I use a combination of recognized acting methods in tandem with the artforms that move you, to help you develop your own unique style.

I can teach just as easily online as I can in person. I can come to you, or we can work together with an ocean between us!

About Alexandra

Acting and performance is like breathing, for me. I would not be the person I am today without it. It has been my outlet, my therapy, and my teacher. I am not expecting everyone I teach to approach it in the same way, but that's how it is for me. As an instructor, the joy and illumination I see

Online Acting Teacher

I have been working professionally in the industry from a very young age, and as a current working actor, I know what is happening in the audition rooms, and how to help guide & teach young actors so they can grow and be confident. Not only have I taught for over 5+ years, but I have performed with actors of varying ages, which has helped me to really connect and make sure I can help students find age appropriate material that they can identify with & enjoy working on while they navigate what it means to be an actor.

About Chelsea

Hi there! Looking to work on new audition material, prepare for a callback, improve your cold-reading skills, and more? I'm eager to work with you! I'm a professional working actor/singer who has been in the business since I was a child, and after years of working both in Los Angeles & New York

"Alex is the best acting coach I've ever had! She worked with me before a major audition and was incredibly insightful. She helped me get to the truth of the pieces I had chosen and instilled confidence in me. The audition was a success! Couldn't have done it without her."

"Exceptional! Toya is a working artist herself, so she is beyond knowledgeable about acting and voice. A lot of my daughter’s lessons ran longer than the time I paid, which is a rare, and very generous thing. Toya makes sure you get what you pay for and more. She’s so passionate about helping talent find their way in the arts. She is equally great at helping parents who know nothing about the arts, like me, learn the best way to support our kids in the arts, which is just incredible. She is beyond talented, very professional, and an absolute inspiration to all those she teaches. My daughter started out with no experience, and learned it all from Toya. She is now working as a professional actor thanks to Toya! My family and I will get to see my daughter in a major film in theatres! By far the best acting/vocal instructor on TakeLessons or anywhere else, hands down."

"Amelia was one of my first acting coaches and by far the best I have ever and will ever work with. Amelia encourages her students to look beyond the pages of the script and find the meaning in the words. She taught me to explore the characters I played and challenged me each time, helping me improve with each character. Amelia helped me realize my love for acting and allowed me to explore what it takes to truly connect with a character. While Amelia clearly loves the craft of acting, more importantly she loves to see her students improve and grow. Even though five years have passed since Amelia has been my teacher, I still reference the tools she taught me with each of my roles."

She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.

My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie."
