I tailor each lesson to the actor. I create a safe space to play and learn. I empower and uplift each student so they approach the work with excitement instead of fear. Together, we create realistic goals for the actor's career. We may work on auditions, self tapes, scenes, anything and everything the actor is struggling with.

I help each student analyze the script so they can make strong choices that are unique to their acting talents.

About Kimberly S.

All lessons have been moved online indefinitely due to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding.

**Tuesday is the best day to schedule lessons with me. However, I'm happy to work with your schedule! Just contact me and we'll get something scheduled. Keep in mind I am on the east coast time (EST).

I have experience coaching many professional working actors and writers, both children and adults. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, SMILF, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students!

I am a trained actress, writer and director. If you have questions about story structure, what it's like being on set, the different jobs on set, what you should know before an audition, I can answer any and all questions about acting, writing and filmmaking!

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in: Improv (UCB), Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor, writer, filmmaker or comedian on the business aspect of their career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director/producer/etc?, what events/workshops should I be attending? We can go over all that plus how to deal with nerves, get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my passions with you!

I am also happy to be a reader/coach for your self tape! Due to COVID, I will be reading via video chat, which works just as well as an in person reader! I can help with your eyelight, framing, acting, etc. We can use this as a tool to improve or for an audition. We can also chose your best take together.

Kimberly spent extra time with my 9 yo daughter on an audition prep. She helped her along with many tips and I felt refined her self tape significantly. She is very pleasant and my daughter connected with her well. Thanks Kimberly, she looks forward to another session with you!

My daughter was super nervous to start but Kimberly was fantastic! She immediately put her mind at ease and dove right in! Highly recommend Kimberly!!

It was a great first lesson. My 13 year old daughter and I were a little anxious that it would feel weird and awkward, but Kimberly is so down to earth and positive. She also had great suggestions to getting started. We're excited to go back next week!

Amazing!! She's so open and kind. Her technique is great and girl knows her comedy! I'm proud of the work I do with her and always leave feeling inspired. She really cares about her students and their success. Don't know what I'd do without her!

Today was my daughter's 5th class with Kimberly and they were working on audition prep and scene studies. Kimberly is patient, thoughtful, and knows how to provide a safe place of learning. We are so happy to be working with her!

Kimberly has been really great to work with! My 10 year old daughter needed a boost of confidence and emotional support for her upcoming auditions and Kimberly has provided that for her. She is willing to share her tips of the trade and offer her knowledge, skills, and support.

When working in the entertainment industry it's important to have a good team and Kimberly has been a wonderful addition for my daughter.

Kim is a ray sunshine with an added stroke of knowing what she's talking about. Kim has had great training, and it shows that she's an actor with taste and knack for articulating clearly! Kim writes as an added bonus and she can break down scripts to for auditioning needs wonderfully. If you want a professional in the business on your court, Kim is the one to go to.

Session to get to know each other. It seems like Kimberly will be a good fit.

Simply wonderful. Few other words are apt to describe working with Kim on acting. She is a warm and compassionate coach who knows not only her stuff, but how best to reach me as the student. I felt completely at ease with her and was able to access the very vulnerable parts of myself for these auditions without any reservations whatsoever. Plus, the lady has a serious funny bone and is a pro with comedic scenes as well!
I couldn't recommend her more highly for any of your acting needs! I can't wait to find my next audition so I have the chance to work with Kim again!
