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.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

Alyssa is the best. I had a little less than a month to pick two contrasting monologues for an audition. Alyssa sent me a monologue that’s was absolutely amazing. Alyssa is patient, knowledgeable, and a ton of fun. Completely down to earth. (Judgment free zone). I would refer Alyssa to any and everybody. Amazing experience.

First session was basically a meet and greet, and I must say, she's got a pretty awesome personality as well as a very open and free flow vibe.

Alyssa is great. She has an in-depth knowledge of multiple teaching techniques that will help you improve as an actor. She is also extremely flexible and will tailor lessons to focus on what aspects of acting you wish to improve and what teaching methods help the most.

I have been studying acting for over 15 years and I've decided that directing and teaching is something that I enjoy. I've watched very talented people get destroyed by instructors who really didn't know how to communicate with actors. You will have a safe place to work on your craft with me and you will leave knowing that once you get into the room you will be ready.
Best to everyone who has the guts to dream. I'm on your team.

Yvette is a very dedicated instructor who wants her students to learn, and get booked for acting, I have been with Yvette only a year, and she is my first true acting teacher, I set in a couple of other instructors' classes before and I was frightened.

As an instructor Yvette interviews one by talking to you calmly about what you want to do, and what exposure you have had. She determines your personality and what type parts that may be comfortable for you, and what type parts you should try to familiarize yourself with other than just your comfort zone.

She pulls the best out of her students without frightening them. She works with each individual's needs.

I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.

"I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too."

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
