I am a director who has made more than 700 television commercials, including three spots for the Superbowl I have won numerous award at Cannes, Clios, and AICP Awards. My skills are in acting for TV commercials, and preparing for auditions. A commercial script is not very obvious. I can help an actor to reveal wha is in the script and how to prepare the role for an audition. After twenty-five years makin ads, I can also offer advice about how to handle an audition, and the protocols for the director and ad agency once in the room. Defining what is essential for a audition for tv commercials--creating a character, varying interpretations, and the understanding of what is expected from the actor are all things I can help you with.

I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!
Paige L.
Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.

Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.

We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.

Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.

This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.

Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

"I worked with Samara on monologues for college auditions and for my showcase, we worked together for a little under (I think) three months. She's such a great teacher, definitely no complaints. I really loved working with her and she totally helped build my confidence when it came to performing in front of others—I'm (or was) ironically shy/weird about performing monologues and pieces in front of people and have been since I started doing theatre (10 years ago). Nonetheless, I got over that after Samara helped me with my acting and I don't get pre-performance anxiety/nerves anymore. I don't think I would've been able to pull off any of my monologues had it not been for her lessons, she actually helped me choose one of the audition monologues because I couldn't find a second one. In the whole monologue/character-building process, she took notes and asked me questions that really made me think about my character and their motives and actions and whatnot. She's also very encouraging and would commend me on anything I did well or improved on. Point is, Samara is a superb teacher and human!! I'd confidently recommend her classes to anyone who needs help with their acting. Five stars because she definitely was the best instructor ever!!"
