I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.

Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

Marissa is an excellent teacher. She has been teaching my eleven-year-old who is just starting out with voice (and was feeling very nervous). Marissa did a great job of helping her feel at ease, and working with her. She says that Marissa is always kind and friendly and she's learning a lot.

John works with students to teach and reinforce the fundamentals of and build good foundations for acting. No matter your skill level, John will use his experience as a director and a coach to work with actors towards their goals whether they be to improve craft, build repertoire, or prepare for auditions. John works within a modified form of Viewpoints Method (as well as derivative forms of Stanislavsky and Meisner) and lessons involve movement-based warm-ups, grounding exercises, work through improv, and text work/character building. Lessons with more experienced actors or actors looking to improve rep or prepare for auditions will also involve scenework.

About John

As a director and a coach, I pride myself on creating a positive atmosphere where actors are encouraged to try the

John is very experienced and helpful. More importantly, he has a calming and supportive vibe that I find really helps me stay motivated. Highly recommend!
Katy
I have worked with John as both an actor and a writer in a professional capacity. He directed me during my first foray into immersive theatre and was so terrific at breaking down concepts and offering his insight and experience while still treating the process as collaborative. I cannot recommend working with John as a student or a collaborator highly enough. Although I have not worked with him in a musical capacity, the work of his I have had the opportunity to witness is first class as a composer, lyricist, and musician. Most importantly, thanks to John, I have found my own voice as an immersive artist.

"Dennis C. Johnson brings decades of performing experience to his students. Through improvisation, script analysis, on-camera technique, audition training, and facial and voice control, Dennis gives the acting student the tools with which to gain expertise and confidence when auditioning for roles and acting on stage and in film. His training in voiceover work is precise and gives the student a wealth of knowledge and experience in how to control and alter one’s voice for audio work. Acting/theater games are always explained as to how they help the student with various aspects of performance. His classes are always fun and informative."

Kelly's broad knowledge of acting techniques coupled with her engaging and fun teaching style was a BIG win for my son's self-confidence. Kelly's can do attitude and positive outlook is contagious. She inspires you to want to improve your craft; having fun in the process. Kelly taught my son techniques that are useful in all aspects of communication; skills he can take into his adult life. I would recommend Kelly to anyone who is interested in acting, improv, public speaking or an overall tune up on how to read and respond to social situations. Thanks Kelly!"
