Depending on your skill level and personal goals, we'll work on your foundational skills from getting in touch with emotions, analyzing scripts, and finding your character. Together we'll further develop your skill and I'll help you modify your performance to fit the medium you'll be performing in.

Hi! I’m Sara, a working actor with over 5+ years of experience in film, commercial, theatre, and voice-over work. I've received my B.A. in Theatre Arts from Earlham College and have been working professionally in Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students with big network auditions for tv and voice over, getting ready for a school play, and taking the next step in their professional career.
I love setting goals with my students and no goal is too small or too big. Whether you just want to dip your toes into acting or to go after a big agent in L.A. I'd love to help you reach that and I look forward to working with you! I currently only teach online because I am often on the go - but I will always find time for you!
Worked at two Junior High Schools and over 40 Elementary schools as an assistant and occasional primary English teacher. Also translated English to Japanese and Japanese to English texts for schools as well as for city hall.
Our mission is to inform and educate members of the voiceover community and other business professionals about best practices, standards for ethical conduct and professional expertise as it relates to the voiceover industry.
We communicate the importance of voice acting to the public and business leaders, affirm the power of professional quality voicing and recording, and inspire through articles and recognition of achievement and excellence. We represent and advocate for the profession and stimulate discussion of the industry through events, social media and websites.
Sara is very friendly and provided me with a lot of resources that I could use to improve my speaking.
First meeting I felt was very informative, professional but personable at the same time and I can't wait unil our next session although I have a lot of work to do on my own until then.
Connects very well with my son and is teaching him how to connect with his emotional side which can help him in many aspects of his life, not just in acting.
Very kind and encouraging, which was wonderful since I am new to voice acting. Gave me much information on how to build my career and how the industry works. Taught me how to do in-depth character analysis. Gave me a chance to apply what I learned through practice runs and gave good tips on how to improve. Helped guide me in understanding the character (instead of strictly defining the character for me) so that I can learn how to do it on my own.Show More
She is very friendly and kind. She makes sure that you are clear what she wants to do and she will ask if you have questions for her. She is quite funny, and this was my first lesson with her so far
She is a great teacher and really expresses herself.
My daughter just had a lesson with Sara for practicing her speech prepared for competing in a humorous interpretation event and she found Sara's lesson very useful. We can see the improvement immediately after her lesson.
Her teaching style was amazing and enough convincing my 12 yrs old daughter.It was for her first time to learn acting but found her curiosity on them.I appreciated Sara to give us such a opportunity.
Sara is awesome! Extremely knowledgeable and talented.

Sara is a wonderful teacher. She teaches my daughter Japanese for preparing for her upcoming Japan trip. My daughter didn't want to take the lesson at the beginning. But, after one class, she wants to have more lesson with her. We look forward to more future lessons with her.Show More
She is not only knowledgeable but is polite and has a great feeling of low or no judgement (which is what you need if you are starting out). I am most satisfied with her as my instructor as she recognizes bad form and corrects it with respect and tact.
Wonderful teacher! Lessons move at a good pace and she makes the lessons very enjoyable. I look forward to learning with her in the future!
She was a great teacher. She compliment you a lot and she never focused on the negatives.
Excellent lesson. I got a lot out of it.
Ms. Sara is a wonderful instructor. She's very encouraging, friendly and I really appreciate how understanding she is, too. The pacing of my lessons is just quick enough that I'm comfortable learning new things and I never feel forced to learn harder things sooner than I need. I really enjoy having her as my sensei and I hope that I can continue learning under her more in the future.Show More
