Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production C

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Private Improv Acting Teacher

I provide a very custom approach to the individual. I first learn about them as an actor. Have they any training? Do they need help with projecting? Do they need help with speaking lower? Do they need help interpreting scripts? I will use my mini interview on our first lesson to decide what we need to work on and then provide them with the appropriate monologue or scene to prepare for our next lesson. I will then help them truly find themselves in the character using different acting methods I’ve learned. I will give them constructive feedback on their performance and have them practice it at home before their next lesson. Aside from the structure of my lessons, I’m really bubbly and friendly and I think I will make actors feel they are in a safe space to truly express themselves!

Online Improv Acting Teacher

When I began directing I found that my favorite part was taking the time to coach the actors and finding what techniques worked best for them to get them to where they needed to be in their performances. Often my rehearsals are a series of exercises and coaching techniques to help the actors grow into their performances, which lead me to want to teach acting more regularly.

He is clearly knowledgeable and dedicated! No at all intimidating. I am just excited to have something fun in my life.
Merak F.
My son Merak just had his first class with David. At first we had to reschedule due to technical difficulties and David was extremely easy to work with when accommodating a new time. Today during the class David was professional and very knowledgeable. So far he is well worth the investment and I look forward to having him teach my son more.
Mingrui Li
David is very engaging, laid-back, friendly, and straight on point. I like our first class a lot and looking forward to the next one.

"Christine has the unique ability to combine great teaching with a lot of laughter and fun. She allows her students to feel completely comfortable to say and do anything that comes to mind, for that is what improve is all about: staying in the moment. Her exercises to mold that "improv state of mind" are fantastic and opens you up find humor in just about anything. Her classes not only shaped me into being able to feel comfortable in front of an audience, her teaching has shaped me into not taking things happening in my own life sooooo seriously. Thank you, Christine, for helping me in so many areas of my life, all lthrough your sense of humor and excellent teaching skills."

"Working with Christine has been nothing short of an amazing experience. I have learned so much about the industry and have received so much insight on what it takes to be a great actress/comedian/etc. When I first started out, I had no idea what direction I wanted to take or where to start. Christine was extremely patient and came equipped with a roadmap to getting started. She takes every lesson at the pace that works best for me. She has helped me to set and define clear goals of what I want to accomplish and has made excellent use of our time together. I chose Christine because of previous reviews and she has lived up to every word of what others have said. It's been a blast and I plan to continue developing my skill set with her help!"
