My job is to get you out of your own way. When I teach you to fiercely pursue your actions, the honest expression of your emotional life will be released. As a graduate of Yale School of Drama (MFA), as well as SUNY Purchase (BFA), I have been lucky enough to study such a wide range of techniques. Meisner, Strasberg, Hagen, Royal Shakespeare Company, and many more. Together, we can discover what blocks may be holding you back, so that you can truly discover your greatest potential as an actor. Working in all three mediums of television and film has taught me the simple adjustments for each, and I will share these with you. I am a working actor and stand up comedian, and look forward to working with you, at whatever level you may be at.

I loved working with Frank on my audition for Ray Donovan. Frank is smart, funny and very concise, and a pleasure to work with! He was able to help me distill what the scenes were really about, and helped find comedy in a scene that I hadn’t yet discovered. Highly recommended! Did I mention I booked the job! Thanks Frank!

Hi, I am a beginning actor, just learning All of the basics. I decided to reach out to Frank Liotti because I had heard he was an amazing teacher. I met with him and immediately felt comfortable. He was so patient and so informative. I had no background and acting. He taught me so many techniques that help me audition for a number of different roles. I got a huge audition for the show, “Crashing” on HBO. It was for a pretty big part. I was very nervous about it. Once I met with Frank I felt totally confident and I went in and killed the audition. I don’t think I would’ve done that well if I hadn’t met with him and had him teach me. He also recently helped me with an audition that I had for an upcoming Judd Apatow film. The audition went amazing. I cannot say enough about Frank. If you’re looking for an incredible acting coach/teacher, he is the best out there.

I have been studying theatre acting for years. I have been a Musical Theatre performer for years and I am still studying singing, acting and dancing. I am still young and know what it feels to want to better yourself everyday, so I can relate to most learning students. I put a lot of importance to voice training, technique and acting warm-ups.

About Jennifer

Bgcheck Background Checked


Online Acting Teacher

Acting with ease is mostly about really being relaxed and at peace while fulfilling a role. The best acting comes from having passion and confidence in the choices that you have made while you have prepared. The greatest obstacle? The inner critic, the inner skeptic, the inner dragon that works hard to put on the breaks and make us question ourselves and whether it is safe or not to let go. My job is to help you feel safe enough to be able to trust your creative instincts and your natural impulses. I'm more of a kind, compassionate, understanding and forgiving coach who nurtures the talent that is already in there. We all know you've got it -- who are we kidding?

He shared many insights he has learned along the way, and gave them a ton of information about the pros and cons of the industry. He was an extremely dynamic speaker and the student were highly engaged throughout the lesson. They were able to ask him questions and he answered them in ways they could understand.

Stars like Meryl Streep and Al Pacino make it look easy, but if you want to become a professional actor, don't expect to rely on talent alone. Even if you're a natural performer who can cry on command and memorize lines, you'll need to learn the following fundamental drama techniques to really master the art of acting. 1.
