I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

Wonderful experience. I think that I’ll be able to improve with him by my side :-)

I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

About Dakota

Hello! I am a classically trained, working actor with years of real world experience. If you are seeking lessons for a child, you should know that I worked in childcare for over a decade, am an expert in child development, and have a child of my own! If you have any questions, comments, or concern

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Confidence in acting is all about finding your own process, discovering the best things that work for YOU. Whether you have an audition you're working towards, a job you're preparing for, or you want to flex your acting muscle through new material, let's hash it out!

When I was cast as a supporting lead in an HBO show years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I came from a theatre background and had never been on a set before - I learned by watching and asking the actors around me who had been doing it for years. Now, after nearly a decade in this business, I've found some things that help me that can hopefully help you. This should be fun! Feel free to check out my IMDB page for a more detailed overview.

About Meg

I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied Acting and Music Theatre. I have spent nearly a decade working in theatre, TV, film, and commercials. Credits include: HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Peacock's Mr. Mercedes, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, ABC's Nashville, and FX's American Horror Story.

It honestly does not get better than Meg when it comes to acting coaches. She is a powerhouse in her own professional career and she brings all that experience to your work. She is kind, fun, encouraging, and genuinely interested in who you are as an actor/what you want out of your career. You cannot get more of an expert than Meg.

I'm a working Actor from England who moved to Los Angeles. I've worked on large sets and know what it is like to book and be the lead in a movie. I want to help students broaden ideas of what acting is by sharing some of the great actors, directors and films from the past. Share how I do my work. While also talking about what it's actually like to walk on set for the first time and have to carry a film on your shoulders.

For those actors actively pursuing a career we can work on a role or self tape, talk about how to book a job and what to do if you do book one. My last two jobs including driving a car in Downtown LA with a police escort and an Oscar winning DP in the car filming me and the other being flown to Canada to play the lead in a TV Movie that aired in multiple countries around the world. All of this nothing other than I at least can share what things helped me get there and what it's like to be in that situation.

I'm very much looking forward to sharing this with ...

About Sebastian

I've played the lead in multiple projects including full feature films. If you want to get real knowledge of what it's like to be in that situation, how I got there and what my process is in acting. Then let's get to work.

Sebastian was kind, professional, sensitive and an amazing lister. He pointed out multiple subtle changes I could use to make my acting more believable. An observant and empathetic teacher, I would recommend and give him a full 5 stars!

"I met Alicia through a school for modeling and acting, my daughter had just started classes there, I had previously submit her application for a short film audition, not affiliated with the school. I was nervous when contacted for the audition, knowing she has no experience, I mentioned her audition to Alicia and my fear, she was so excited for my daughter and was willing to work with her as her acting coach, my daughter not only got the part, I was told her audition was awesome. Alicia coached my daughter only twice before her actual location shoot day, I received so many compliments from the film director and camera crew how well my daughter played her role like a pro, thanks to Alicia. I recommend Alicia to a friend of mine in need of an acting coach for her 5yr old son, she is excited so is her son, he enjoys every minute with his coach. Alicia is the best and will bring out the best in her students."
