Private Acting Teacher

I received a BFA in Acting from The Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and I've been working as an actor for the past ten years. I know how challenging it can be to prepare an audition, especially if you're doing it by yourself. As your coach, I want to work WITH you to build the confidence you need to make bold, positive choices that excite and energize your performance. After all, an audition is an opportunity to act, and an opportunity to show them what you can do.

About Marie-France

I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. After working with hundreds of students, I realized that I needed to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student dis

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, at the end of my second lesson she offered to email me a list of acting/improv classes in NYC because everyone she knows was in NYC.
This was contradictory because initially she told me she just moved here and doesn't know anyone up north. And besides that, I expressed how happy i was with her classes which was down the road 35 minutes and not commuting to NYC which is over a couple hours.
Anyway, I am glad that I actually learned something and got to do exercises and not leave with the feeling that i wasted my money and most importantly my time like other acting coaches on here.

Great teacher. Very encouraging and patient which is what an adult learner needs. She supports her students and gives them interesting contemporary pieces to learn (that is the genre we picked so we stay interested in practicing!). Thanks Marie France!

I enjoyed my 2 sessions with Marie, and from work she was a 35 min commute vs 90 mins to NYC.
With her I felt engaged, she was prepared, professional, stayed on topic and gave relevant critiques and feedback.
At the end of my second lesson she offered to email me a list of acting/improv classes in NYC which she did.

James Jr.
Kent has the ability to do or teach drama, comedy and improvisation. He has wisdom, talent, intelligence and integrity. I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.
SOLID T.
I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career.
