I taylor specific workshops or lessons for individuals or groups, specialising in Shakespeare/ Improvisation/ Ensemble Theatre/ Audition Prep/ English Dialect Coaching/ Voice and Text/ Acting - depending on the goals and aims of my students. I have worked extensively as an actress and coach and love helping people to improve their skill set and build up their confidence.
I can assist students in developing their skills in reading, analyzing writing and public presentation. I work with each student individually and create lesson plans that are fun and address the particular needs of a student. I believe in the power of positive reinforcement coupled with discipline. If you are willing to try and I can help you reach your goals.
In terms of methodology, I tend to be a Stanislavski purist, tempered by my own observations. My approach to acting and character development is marked by research, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of the world of the play, and of the characters as people.
I approach each student individually. I believe in setting measurable goals and checking in with progress on a regular basis to assure each student is successful based on the goals we've set together. No matter what level a student is starting at, together we can make your dreams a reality.
I believe that pertaining to acting, people learn by doing. The structure will be learning a monologue or performing a piece and offering feedback to help it become the best performance it can be. I am patient and methodical. We can also work on auditioning, such as clothing, style, and how to build confidence and many other things in the industry.
Hi there! My name is Claire and I am a theatre enthusiast living in Pittsburgh. I have a degree in marketing and theatre performance from the University of Pittsburgh as well as training from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City.
I am willing to help anyone who wants to know more about acting. I recently started college and I'm majoring in Speech/Theater. I will teach kind of off my textbox that I use for my acting one class and may give little quizzes to make sure you are taking in what I'm trying to teach.
I have had almost ten years of education and experience as a local actor, musician, and improv-partaker. I began in high school, and have always stood out among the crowd (at least according to my teachers and peers). I have continued to pursue theater as a whole since then and really just want to help others realize their dreams as well.
I received my Education in the Arts and Education Community, in New York City. I was initially trained at both the " Mind Builders " and " Henry Street " Programs in New York City. I later received my Created Writing Training at ' NYU" where I crafted my Playwriting and Poetry skills.
I give lessons to any age group over 10 years old. My degree is a 4 year bachelors of the arts in theatre studies. I work in many methods, but particularly follow Richard Seid, viewpoints, Stanislavsky, and method (not to the extreme, basic principals). I am always learning new techniques, so my lessons will not become stagnant and myself and my students will grow.

In our work together, we will build your own reliable sense of craft that is truly useful. My students become confident, courageous and creative, by learning to be authentically themselves as they perform...And these skills translate into the ability to get work because they know HOW to work! I have worked with actors and singers from 7 to 87. My approach is unique, effective and useful.
I teach on a both one-on-one or group relationship. I will work with new improv groups that need guidance and more technique when approaching performance. With acting, I work as a director, and also a coach. I have experience and foundation with different acting methods, therefore, I come at a student from many different techniques.
BSc. Chemistry; MDiv Theology; two decades of engaging various African cultures to explore the human condition. If we are to develop we must be community oriented and wholistically considerate. I learn best by engaging in another's life and walking together on their journey.
I believe in giving 100% focus to each student. Each person will need something different to get to their desired next level. I strive to create an atmosphere in which students can feel safe to further their craft, take creative risks and give shape to a character.
My teaching method is based on my own experiences along with the teachings of Sanford Meisner, a man of many talents. Sanford Meisner is my mentor as I have read every book and manual he has authored along with watched some of his past students.
I give these classes at a basic understanding level, or higher depending on the student(s) knowledge of Commedia dell'arte.
My teaching method is individual based, starting out with a quick dialogue about past experience with Shakespeare and heightened text, and delving into further topics such as gender, sexuality, mental illness. I do not push or pry for vulnerability, and allow each student to unfold through humor and play using games and theatre-based activities to incite meaningful dialogue.

During my time here in South Africa, I've used meditation and movement as entry points to performance with my young actors. Imagination and concentration exercises have been foundational in teaching discipline and craftsmanship. I then, begin talking them through their scene-work helping them find their way to the character through questions and propositions.
I have a background in so many methods that I have many tools to pull from my toolbox to enhance your performance. I am extremely knowledgeable in modern and classical texts, as well as current TV/film writing and industry standards.
My teaching method is student based, and totally dependent on your needs. Are you seeking help preparing for college or professional auditions? Monologue coaching? Or help working through the fundamenatals of performance? We will discuss these questions and more during your first lesson, and devise a lesson plan suited specifically to you.
Throughout my teaching, I am focused on the individual and listening to the ways they best learn. In theater, I often teach and direct through asking questions of what makes sense to the actor. By asking insightful questions, and helping students explore their answers in greater depth, I help people find their way to understand their own interpretations of texts with their own voices.
I curtail each class to what the student is most keen on learning. However, I generally like to do scene study, theatre games, preparing monologues for auditions, audition technique, text analysis and viewpoints exercises.
I believe in teaching to your particular learning style. While more of my classes are kinesthetic or "hands on", I tend to adapt my methodology based on how my students learn. The activities and lessons I provide allow for all types of learning.
My method of teaching is practical application. I assign scenes and monologues to get the student busy with learning. I use and learn what the student does from that. I am familiar with most acting techniques and apply from them all for the student.
I seek to give students a well-rounded and thorough understanding of whatever subject I teach. I believe the educational journey is just as important as the final result. If I do my job right, my students will learn to find joy in whatever subject they are learning.

My method is to repeat topics until they are mastered and drilled into the brain, as well as a ton of practice in areas that need help! Students should come in with material they feel they need to work on, such as songs or monologues, and we will work to improve them as well as come up with other options for them as well.
