Sara M.

West Sacramento, CA

I like to give my students the tools and skills to which they can learn to direct themselves and to continue to grow as an actor. I have a B.A. in Theater Arts from Earlham College, and have been working professionally for over 4 years. I've been mentoring actors for 3 years in both stage and voice acting and have conducted workshops locally in Voice Acting. I always like to start out by talking about your personal goals and what you're looking for in a lesson. Whether you just need another pair of eyes for an audition monologue or you want advice on getting started in voice over, whatever it is, I want to help you pursue your dreams no matter how small or big.

About Sara

Hello, My name is Sara and my mother is Japanese from Kobe, Japan and my father is Caucasian American. I grew up speaking both Japanese and English and I now work as a bilingual, full-time actor in beautiful Northern California. I'm looking forward to working with you on reaching your goals for 2015! Whether you want to study acting or Japanese, I'd like to talk about what you wish to accomplish with our time together. Your goals are important to me and I wish to help support you on your journey towards achieving them.

I've been mentoring actors for the past four years and have have be
en teaching Japanese and English for 3 years. A friend suggested I start teaching online after I told him about my desire to offer affordable acting lessons to anyone who was passionate about it, but had no resources. So here I am and I'm also offering Japanese lessons since I know it can be hard to find a Japanese teacher/tutor as well.

I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts and a minor in Education from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana and have a certificate of completion from the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco for completing their Classical Acting Intensive course. In addition to my western training I was an apprentice at Theatre of Yugen where I studied the dramatic art of Noh and Kyogen theatre for 3 years.

I've also taught Japanese 101 during college as part of my course work for Teaching Japanese as a Second Language as well as beginner Japanese to 5-7 graders at a local elementary.

And I also was an assistant English teacher for 2 years in Japan teaching Junior High School and working as a primary visiting teacher for over 40 elementary schools. Although my work was to teach English, because of my Japanese ability, I often worked as a substitute teacher and also translated documents for the local City Hall.

I can't wait to meet you and to work with you on pursuing your 2015 aspirations!
