Respect for the Actor/Actress journey. I have been a professional actor for 15 years now with a strong focus on Television and Film. I currently recur as a Guest Star on the critically acclaimed series Better Call Saul. Other credits include Friday Night Lights, The Night Shift, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Shot Caller, and many more.

My goal is to get you where you want to be as a performer, to continue to push you to use those muscles, because we are what we repeatedly do. Whether it is working on cold reading sides, breaking down the script, getting away from the nerves so "You" can shine, to the business of acting, adding life to characters with subtle nuances, I'd love to help you, it would be my honor.

About John Christian

Hi, I'm John L., and I'm here to help you actualize your dreams as an actor or actress. I can currently be seen recurring as a Guest Star across 4 seasons of the critically acclaimed series "Better Call Saul" the prequel to the world-renown "Breaking Bad" series. It is my pleasure to share with

From a first impressions perspective, this was a 5 star experience. Stephanie made me comfortable and took the time to hear my concerns and goals on the 1st lesson. Simultaneously, she provided encouragement and confidence coaching I did not anticipate. It was a great experience, and I am excited to see what the future holds!

Stephanie is a great instructor. Her teaching is very clear, dynamic, flexible and client-centered. I started with accent reduction lessons, and then she taught me a lot about interview preparation as well. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. My lessons with her always feel like a transformative experience for me.

Gabriel is an amazing coach. He takes the time to explain in detail how to discover a character in an easy to understand way. As a beginner he has really helped me learn to break down a script and understand what is going on. He teaches you how to set yourself apart from the crowd in an audition. I highly recommend Gabriel to anyone seeking to better their craft or begin acting!

Gabriel developed a proprietary method of accent reduction that makes it easy to focus on the areas that need change or improvement. The method, combined with Gabriel’s passion for teaching, make the classes dynamic and productive. He quickly identified my problematic areas, and patiently worked with me on changes I needed to make to the way I pronounce certain sounds.

He also provides ample resources and direction for exercises in between the lessons to make the progress faster. I highly recommend Gabriel for accent reduction classes.

About Kara

I'm not going to lie to you. It's not easy being an actor. It's vulnerable. It's unstable sometimes. It forces you to confront your weaknesses. But, because I will NEVER lie to you, you'll know exactly where you stand, what you need to work on, how much you're improving. I'm not saying I'm tough or

"Sarah has the unique ability to get you down to the meat of a scene very quickly, working to build through all context clues into a fully rounded and realized character. Her knowledge of script analysis and character breakdown is second to none, and she has helped me tackle any scene with surprising ease. Sarah is wonderfully supportive and knows how to guide an actor into making the most authentic acting choices, without ever feeling like she is critiquing, like some coaches can be. Her experience in production is invaluable, as you gain much clearer insight into what casting is looking for when going in for an audition, and what is most important in the preparation of your performance. We've also been able to identify and work on blocks in my work, helping me to build upon my work continuously. I'm so grateful to work with Sarah on my auditions and immensely happy to have her coaching and guidance through my career."
