About Chaneé
Hey There! I'm Chaneé. I am an American Sign Language tutor and professional Actress. Over the years I have taught ASL to many actors for specific roles and just great students who wanted to learn to communicate with the deaf. If you have friends or family that is deaf or dealing with hearing loss learning ASL is a great way to communicate and build stronger relationships. Maybe you want to become an interpreter or just learn a song for a church service or a role in a movie. Many parents use sign language or baby sign to communicate with their children. No matter the reason, I'm here to give you all the ASL you want to learn at your pace.

I studied ASL and Deaf Culture at Philadelphia College and the Philadelphia School of the Deaf while attending the University of the Arts for Theater Arts. On top of my overachieving college studie
s.. I also have many deaf friends. I use ASL in my daily life and I'm always thrilled to share the culture and language with others. I am a very friendly person so expect a good time during your lesson. I can't wait to meet you!

About Jason
I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting. Performing with professional repertory companies like ACT Theatre, Book-It Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, I've gained personal knowledge of the art, craft, and business of being a working actor, which I will put to work for you, in a personalized one-on-one coaching session, either online or in person.

Here's how I can help.

SCENE WORK AND MONOLOGUES: Whether it's dusting off and refreshing monologues you've performed more times than you can count, or developing pieces or scenes for the first time for an upcoming stage or on-camera audition, we can break the material down togethe
r, work on the clarity of your choices and active objectives, and access your personal connection to the material so you'll be ready and confident with a one-of-a-kind performance that reflects the strengths you bring to acting and the story you want to tell.

SHAKESPEARE: Perhaps the most daunting of styles for a contemporary actor, we'll get down to the nuts and bolts of some of the most challenging (and rewarding) material. The famous soliloquies are famous for a reason and can certainly be intimidating, and more obscure material can seem thick and inaccessible. We'll chip away at the mystique of Shakespeare by digging in to the text and verse, activating the language with specificity, and cultivating your personal take on well-known characters or lesser known material they might not have seen before.

DIALECTS AND ACCENTS: From English to Irish to Southern American and beyond, a well executed dialect can be the edge you need to land (and play) that meaty role. I use a multipronged approach that involves ear training to develop an authentic sound, text analysis for clarity of sound substitutions (IPA Proficient), and exercises that pare away stilted and unnatural speech to cultivate an authentic sounding voice that will be your own.

VOICEOVER: I've been booking voiceover gigs on TV, radio, and the internet for over 10 years with clients like Microsoft, Liberty Mutual, UW Medicine, Tableau, Reno Toyota, and Golden One State Credit Union. I can offer tips and tricks of the trade, as well as techniques that can take your VO submissions to the next level and help you book these lucrative contracts.

Let's get started!

Jason has been an amazing coach for my incredibly active animated son. He is great at redirecting my boy when he has trouble focusing and provides immediate feedback to help my son make progress. We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family. Jason it a true professional and communicates beautifully with me. I am looking forward to continuing lessons for my son!

Jason previously worked with my teenage daughter and they made vast improvements in her acting skills and college audition. She was accepted into AMDA. Now he is working with my older daughter to help her get ready to audition at UW and get a working reel together. He is fantastic and really good with any learning differences or styles that might come up.

About Sara
I have been twirling for almost 30 years, and I have taught all different age levels. I have numerous resources for inspiration, questions, and material. I was the captain at the University of Arizona, and I currently have my own team here in Texas. I find students these days learn best when they have an individualized approach to teaching. We follow a curriculum, but we always tailor the program to the child. My own child needs extra attention when it comes to youth sports, so I have learned techniques to teaching children with disabilities. I have trained many twirlers who have gone on to win titles, and I have worked with Elite twirlers to help them perform and compete effectively. My goal is to create more coaches through my teaching and grow the sport of baton twirling.

It came to me again - that feeling that I could do anything. I know that's an exaggeration, but feelings of personal accomplishment lend a lot to taking future risks. Our dance team was under Tom's tutelage for four hours broken into two sessions and I was changed. He had persistence yet patience. He somehow gave everything enough attention, but kept us moving forward to use our time together the most wisely. He adapted to our unique and unusual dynamic and group personality, adopting our language while he taught us his.

My private lesson with him was special too. I remember feeling a bit vulnerable and self conscious in the first few minutes, wondering how we would connect on how to help me. I was put at ease as he listened to my thoughts, partnered with me in a quick exploratory dance, took the reins, and led me through an educational sixty minutes. I liked the way he made the specifics he was conveying accessible through brief relatable personal examples. I've had many people speak to me about frame, but the way he approached it and me was the way that has me doing better (I think!) I found Tom to be incredibly professional, personable, respectful and helpful.
I would certainly benefit from more time in his care.

Tom has a way of teaching that is easily understandable and make sense almost right away all the time. And this is awesome because I have no dance experience. He is just an all-around nice guy that is fun and knows what to say so that the lesson clicks for you he knows how to make you get it.

About Danielle
I have 25+ years of professional acting experience in televison, theater and film. I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where I received a B.A. in Theater and English. I also attended the prestigious National Theater Institute at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT. I am a working actress, acting coach and entrepreneur. I love working one-on-one with students using tools and exercises that I have "collected" over the years. I incorporate these tools along with improvisation, relaxation techniques and long-standing rehearsal exercises all designed to encourage spontaneous, authentic and natural behavior. The tools I use make sense, are easy and fun whether they be used in the rehearsal room, on set or in preparation for an audition.

I have studied Meisner, The “Method” and more classical approaches
to the work yet it was my time spent studying with the late actress/writer/director, E. Katherine Kerr as well as Seth Barrish, founder and co-artistic director of NYC's The Barrow Group, that provided many AHA! moments for me as an actress. It was through their unique and easily relatable approaches to the work that I was able to allow myself to "be" rather than "act".

I have coached one-on-one, taught at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA) as well as given workshops and master classes. My credits include: Television: Person of Interest; The Sopranos; Ugly Betty; Prison Break; All My Children; One Life to Live; Another World, Guiding Light Film: The Brave One; Tadpole. Theater: One Hand Theater, The Summer Fringe, The Barrow Group, Second Stage, Playwrights Horizons, The Lark, H.E.R.E., Studio Arena Theater and has performed live at Town Hall, NYC with Garrison Keillor on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion and can be heard on APHC’s A Pretty Good Joke Tape along with Alison Janney, Paula Poundstone and Roy Blount Jr. I am a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.

I lived in Manhattan for over 20 years and am now back in Fairfield County, CT after 4 years in Los Angeles. I provide one-on-one coaching online from my studio. I work with a wide age range, assorted skill levels and am also available for audition coaching.

I grew up in North Carolina and began ballet when I was three and theatre a few years later. I studied at the Raleigh City Ballet and did pre-professional programs with Carolina Ballet and the University of NC School of the Arts.

Currently I am a teacher, actor, and professional dancer with 10 years of teaching and industry experience. I have a versatile background in numerous styles of dance, acting, fitness, modeling and theatre.
I fell in love with performing at a very young age and haven’t stopped since; one of my greatest passions is sharing that love with others!

I work with all ages and levels from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts! My lessons are challenging, creative, and lots of fun! I focus on encouraging creativity and recognizing small victories as we work towards bigger goals.
