Online Acting Teacher

I teach from the beginning foundations of acting all the way to advanced help on auditions, monologues, scenes, script analysis, etc. I individualize each session based on my student's needs and goals. We work together to achieve your goals, whether it's nailing an audition, scene work, going back to the basics, anything and everything that you're struggling with as an actor. I help with performance nerves, cultivating a sense of freedom and play in my students that makes acting exciting and fun, not scary. I passionately believe that acting is a joyous and transformative artform, as well as a craft requiring practical technique. I create a safe space for my students to learn, discover, and play.

I really enjoyed my lesson with John! I am a little rusty since I haven't done Shakespeare in a long time but John made me feel totally confident. He introduced me to a lot of great techniques and worked with me on the text. Highly recommend!

Online Acting Teacher

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

Ellysa is extremely knowledgeable and practical - her lesson with me was amazing. As a first lesson, we went through my existing equipment and goals for writing/producing my own work, and she gave me an online review of what we discussed next steps were for me. I’m so thankful for her clear and focused guidance!

I'm going to tell you the SECRET to being the quality of actor or actress that makes millions of people flock to theaters and gather in front of television sets in order to experience your work. Teachers and coaches all over the world have developed techniques and styles to give actors their best chance at being cast by directors and producers and to help them achieve their best work. What they FAIL to teach actors ( its not their fault! they were failed by their teachers before them!) IS... Well, that's where you and I come in. I PROMISE you. If you make a commitment of one month, and at least one class a week... you will learn this secret. It is not actually a secret because all the most talented actors know it. They wouldn't be able to move you the way they do if they didn't. From Tom Cruise to Meryl Streep. to Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt. They share THIS knowledge and they have built their careers and become famous stars for the way in which it allows them to shine. I spent

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
