Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

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 ...

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

Rebecca immediately made my granddaughter comfortable. Rebecca is a sweet, charming woman who, I can see, works very well with both children and adults. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to make people feel good about themselves.

My basic approach to classical work focuses primarily on the connection of the breath with the feeling on the word.

This is the foundation on which you can then build. From the ‘words’ to the ‘thoughts’ to entire ‘passages’ of text, as you work and explore, the richness of the playwright’s words comes to life. Your own unique emotional life is allowed to come through the text and you are able to fully embody the role.

Very helpful instructor. Worked with me on moot court preperation for law school. Focusing on highlighting the operative words in phrases and lists. Would reccomend to anyone who really wants to better themselves as a public speaker and orator!
Niamh
Nicholas was an absolutely amazing instructor. He was extremely patient and understanding with my schedule. He helped me go over a few monolgues for several weeks, break them down, and really dissect them to best fit my technique. Working with him really changed my approach, as well as motivation with acting in general, highly reccomend him as a private instructor!
Inji G.
I met with Nicholas before an audition. He is a wonderful teacher. He helped me already a great deal during that short hour, on how to approach the material, break it down in a way that will help my performance reach its full potential. I was able to deliver a truthful performance. I am looking forward to more sessions. Many thanks.

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.

"My very first acting lesson was with Kelsey. Going into it, I was extremely nervous because I had no prior experience at all. However, upon meeting her, Kelsey showed me the most amazing kindness and patience as she molded me into a much better actor, as well as speaker. She knows exactly how to make her students feel as comfortable as possible around her. She is very funny and personable, and an overall pleasure to have as a teacher and coach. I'm still in her class now, and so far I can tell a huge difference in how far I've come 100% due to her. I would definitely recommend her to any aspiring actor at any level. Thanks Kelsey!"
