Public Speaking, Acting, Improv, and Communication Skills

"Speaking publicly was always my greatest fear until I had an opportunity to be coached by James. In just 5 one-hour lessons, my fear of public speaking was eliminated. James was able to convey that my fear of public speaking was irrational, and with several key preparation techniques I would be able to overcome this lifelong challenge. All true! Thanks James!"
--Senior ranking administrator in a private educational institution

The #1 fear of business people is addressing an audience. Effective oral communication, especially speaking in public, is a skill integral to confidence and leadership in the business world. Like any skill, it can be learned. Using breathing, stretching, and relaxation techniques from British theatre training, you will learn how to overcome stage fright and build confidence, so that you can stand in front of a group of people and convey your ideas convincingly, without fear, and become a ...

Magic isn't just a mystery or puzzle to be figured out...Its a performing art (actually one of the variety arts) that designed to entertain. But most importantly, it should be FUN: a delight to both learn & master!

What type of magic would you like to perform for your friends & family? Stage or platform magic (sometimes called Parlor or Cabaret)? Mentalism or mind-reading? How about close-up magic (like cards & coins): Is that your thing? No matter what kind of magic we choose to explore, I've got whole library of teaching references & secret resources (all stowed away in my magic room) to share with you.

I'm Jeff, my stage name is "Mr. Jeffo" and I specialize in entertaining children & families with my own brand of magic and storytelling. I've been performing magic as a part-time pro for decades now, starting out with birthday party shows as a teen, and working my way up to performing corporate meetings, school shows, gatherings and special events over the past 15 years.

Our small group had a blast both watching Jeff perform and then learning learning some magic. His weekly lessons made the pandemic shutdown more bareable and fun in 2020. We’re looking forward to more Magic Monday’s with Mr. Jeffo next summer!

My son is loving his magic lessons with Jeff. He practices and is excited by his progress. Jeff is thoughtful and patient and flexible with his time. Highly recommend his magic lessons.

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.

Kay made me feel very comfortable and I really enjoyed my first class. She's a great instructor; I'm really looking forward to my future lessons.
Trina
My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her.

I'm a beginner actor and Khuloud helped me set a clear path for establishing my career as an actor. She has extensive experience in the industry and gave me real-world tips on how to be successful. I am confident that with the knowledge I gained from this class I will be able to make a lot of things happen for me. I appreciated her flexibility and willingness to work with my schedule. She took our time seriously and worked to make it as beneficial as possible. Very likable person and easy to learn from. She has a genuine love for acting and eagerness to see others with a similar passion succeed. I will most likely be taking instruction for her again in the future.

"Christine pays attention to the needs and level of understanding of each student. The ways she has taken time to instruct me, have not only taken me to another level, but then she'll turn around and explain it to the class, taking us all to another level as a group. She does in one class what some instructors I've had in NYC couldn't do in a month. She's patient and a great listener, which helps make her instruction so clear and incredibly effective. Including classes I've taken in LA, NYC, Indiana and Florida, Christine Alexander is easily the best Improv instructor I've ever had."
