Improve your acting craft with expert coaching from an experienced actor
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.
About Julia S.

Welcome! My name is Julia, and I'm an actor, director, and teaching artist from Philadelphia, PA. I hold a degree in theatre and acting from Temple University, where I was trained by professional actors in the industry such as Amina Robinson (Precious, 2009) and Cheryl Williams (Silver Linings Playbook, 2012). My favorite roles include: Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Babette in The Arsonists, and Violet in Prude. My goal as a teaching artist is to help actors trust themselves, trust the process, and foster their individuality. I promote a positive and safe environment where actors can fully explore their characters and creativity. I started coaching monologues in college because I wanted to help fellow actors gain control of their audition. Monologues can be tricky, and I want to help actors enjoy them! I also work on scenes with my students, as well as business coaching. In my free time, I enjoy painting (poorly), reading, and going on picnics. Thank you for your time. I look forward to helping you perform something you're proud of!

My lessons with Julia have been the highlight of my week. I had never taken acting lessons before and Julia went above and beyond my expectations. She is a thoughtful and considerate teacher. She started by asking about my goals and sending over some material that I felt was catered to my style and specific goals. I have found these lessons to not only have improved my acting, but have also helped me in my daily life. She incorporates a meditative warm up and her empathy and encouragement have helped me to feel more comfortable getting into my body and taking up space when speaking both while acting and in life.

I’ve only have had one lesson so far, but I loved it!

Julia has been teaching me for quite a while now and she has been the greatest teacher I have had. She has taught me so much in such a little amount of time. She makes me feel comfortable while acting, which I find is an amazing quality for a teacher. She also acknowledges how I feel on certain scenes and takes. She is definitely a great teacher.
