I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!
About Jeremy K.

In addition to working professionally an as actor for over 25 years, I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. I am also the Artistic Director of Gorton Drama Studio, a dramatic arts school in Lake Forest, IL. Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you want to learn The Lee Strasberg Method - Method Acting? I can teach you. I will help you with: audition preparation, the business of acting, script analysis, comedic improvisation, and more! I can help with your audition for performing arts high schools. My students have gotten into the schools of their choice. If you have training or are a working actor, I can help take you to the next level. Are you an adult in the work force looking for an acting class that will help you be more spontaneous and personable? I can help. I am a working actor, published playwright and award winning filmmaker. I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. I taught Method Acting, Acting for Camera, Improvisation as well as other classes at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. My students, both at the Institute and from private coaching, have appeared in independent stage and film productions, TV shows, commercials and Hollywood films. I am also the Artistic Director of Gorton Drama Studio, a dramatic arts school in Lake Forest, IL. Frequently Asked Questions Q: What are your lessons like? A: My lessons are tailored for you. After understanding your goal, we do acting exercises and improvisations; we work on comedic and dramatic scripted dialogue and monologues. By the end of every session, I want you to feel like you have learned something and grown. Q: Can acting make you more confident and funnier? A: Yes! Acting will allow you to take risks and sometimes be silly. These experiences can be liberating. Q: I’ve always wanted to be an actor, but can I really do it? A: Acting is an incredible way express yourself creatively. If you want to act, there are plenty of opportunities - in a professional setting as well as in a community setting; you can fulfill your need and it can be exhilarating. Q: I have studied acting for years. How can you help me? A: I can help you work on a specific part and help you use the Method in order to create real behavior - go deeper in your acting. Q: What is Method acting? A: Method acting is reality acting - creating real behavior instead of pretending. I'd love to tell you more about it and how to use it in your acting. Let's talk! Acting is the art of bringing a character to life. I use the Lee Strasberg Method, my original exercises, and a fun and serious demeanor to help actors express themselves as artists and gain the confidence and skills they need in order to book acting jobs. My book, "The Young Actor's Handbook", is published by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books. "The Young Actor's Handbook" ignites the beginning actor's creative soul with acting exercises, acting theory, writing exercises and insight into what it means to be an actor. This is a pragmatic manual that guides and informs the young actor, beginning actor, novice acting teacher or anyone who wants to understand acting. Vincent D'Onofrio Testimonial "Jeremy K's book, "The Young Actor’s Handbook", leads the young actor on the correct path. Jeremy is an experienced acting teacher who has broken down acting in an academic way while nurturing the soul of the actor. He understands the emotional aspects of good acting. I commend Jeremy and believe he has accomplished quite a feat in writing "The Young Actors Handbook."

Jeremy is such an amazing teacher I'm so glad I found him. I highly recommend him!

I had my first session recently, with emphasis on getting in the zone and role of a character as an actor. It was a very positive experience. I understand my role and character better now, which is of great help with my craft. The fact that Jeremy is near Chicago is great as it opens up a chance to meet in person for role callbacks or bookings, for added practice. Best instructor I have had so far. I highly recommend Jeremy K.

My son just had his first lesson and Jeremy helped him finding his monologue and was very attentive. We can’t wait for his next class.
