Private 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!

I have only had one lesson with her but she is amazing. She has already gotten me exploring and learning new things that I haven’t even learned while trying to obtain my degree. Ellysa has a lot of insight about the industry that I appreciate and I am very excited to continue working on my artistry with her.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

Acting is a natural form of exploration we see in children around the world. Imagination, pretending, imitation, mimicry, and character-play extending into the real world can create safety for expression and experimentation.

My playful approach to acting is based on 30 years of experience, a degree from Seattle’s premier BFA program, and five years’ studying playful human interaction with their environment. Applying it to scripts and performance is my particular delight.

Together we work to embody characters, enjoy making messes, and elevate human expression to its most entertaining form. We’ll borrow from improvisation and a variety of artistic disciplines. We’ll create something memorable, profound, and delightful together.

All ages and experience levels.

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia has been teaching me for a while now and all I can say is that she is the best acting instructor I could ask for. She has taught me everything I know about acting and she is just overall a great person. Julia is super kind and makes me feel comfortable. I never got tired of the monologue we were working on, thanks to Julia. She is great with monologue work and teaches many different ways to do it. I definitely recommend Julia! :)
Maria
Julia has been helping me with my acting for a little while now and I already can see my own improvement! She always gives me tips, pointers and corrections during our time but in a way where I feel supported! Her constructive feedback is always helpful and she is so encouraging when I actually nail a scene. She recently helped me with a self tape and I have to say, with her guidance I think it was my best acting to date! I would highly recommend Julia!
Kerri
My teenage daughter has been taking online lessons with Julia for months now. She couldn't' be happier. We are so lucky to have found her!

Hello! I'm Dax L., As a coach, my approach is kind, down to earth, and non-judgemental, but I make sure to give constructive criticism because without it, you cannot and will not improve. I have studied with a wide array of different acting coaches. I am also a producer, director, and screenwriter. Now having finally had the privilege of being the casting director for the film I produced, I have invaluable knowledge to share with you on what to do and what not to do when auditioning (both self-tapes and in person) if you choose to make one of our lessons an industry coaching lesson. For acting coaching, I have helped actors have that "WOW it finally makes sense" moment, where they understand what they had been lacking all along.. unpredictability! In my opinion, the things an actor needs to do to stand out in an audition is be unpredictable, believable, and fully focused. I am super excited to team up with TakeLessons and I hope to be your new coach!

Side note: If you need both ...

Have an interest in acting? Need help with college prep? Just wanna have some theatrical fun? I'm the coach for you! I always start by asking you about any previous experience you may have with acting, your goals, and what are some ways you learn the best. I make it my goal to make sure you feel safe to learn and that it's a good time! I incorporate a bit of lecture and play into my lessons, but don't worry about taking notes; I make sure to provide a resource folder for my students! I assign homework, but it's nothing too scary. I just want to help you begin your practice of acting. Are you ready to learn and have fun?! Well... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Schedule a lesson with me today! Begin your acting journey now!

Coming from a really bad theatre teacher experience, Jamie was encouraging, reassuring and very knowledgeable of their craft. I learned a lot from Jamie, and found being apart of their class was insightful and fun. I'd heavily recommend Jamie!!
Rebecca
I’ve been in class with Jamie and I’ve seen her perform onstage. Her performances are impeccable! She knows how to access vulnerability in every character, while still delivering with power. I’ve learned a lot from watching her act. I would definitely recommend her as an instructor.

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …
