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.
My teaching methodology is quite simple- it is directed toward the class or student I am teaching. I have practiced a great number of acting techniques and can fluidly move in and out of them to find what works best for that specific student or class.
A teacher without patience is like being in a torture chamber! This is not me. I work within the context of your personality and experience and base the lessons around you. We will always work to your best ability and make sure to grow from there.
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 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.

I mainly approach acting lessons with a mixture of different acting techniques, such as Meisner, Growtowski, Bogart, and Uta Hagen. I believe in Stanislavski's goal: the art of experiencing. The basis of acting is related to combining action verbs with your objective. Everything else streams from that, and we will have fun exploring that.
I use a multitude of pedagogical styles to address student concerns. We will dabble in both scripted and improvisational acting. I am looking for eager actors and theatre fans ONLY and am not interested in working with apathetic artists.
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 cater to the individual. I aim to hone in on what each individual student needs rather than teaching blanket, one-size-fits-all lessons. I also don't believe in changing someone. Rather, I choose to uplift and enhance the skills and personality that already exists.
I am a hands on teacher. I like to get the students to directly apply what they learn. I also think it is important to cater to the needs of each acting student so that they can find what works for them and grow as an actor.
For GROUP lessons: Sessions will be interactive. At the beginning of each class we will play a group/partner game to get you moving and break the ice! Our first session will be defining everyone's interests. We will be touching on most of these subjects, but this helps me figure out what to focus on. There will be the occasional homework assignment.
Using methods of stage movement/Suzuki methods, we use personal actor truths to bring honesty to characters. Work on letting go of the ego to bring character and story to the front. Often, lessons would begin with what YOU would like to work on, a monologue, going over the resume, scenes etc. I will watch, take notes, and go from there.
My approach to acting is based on Stanislavski's method, with specific ideas and techniques culled from the score of teachers I have studied with. Script analysis comes first, then purpose is determined, followed by active choices to obtain the objective, with all the emotional life available to the actor.
My teaching methodology varies student to student. I emphasize finding what you enjoy and are best at in your specific art form and then polishing and exemplifying those traits. I find that if instead of trying to push everyone towards an accepted middle I play to each students individual strengths both personal and professional growth occur significantly more often.
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.

I have coached and given acting seminars around the U.S. for over 20 years. I graduated from University of Richmond with a Theatre Arts and Communications B.A. degree. I have been a professional actress for over 30 years and am a member of SAG-AFTRA and Equity. My on the job training includes Improv having worked at the Groundling in L.A.
My teaching method is a very hands-on approach. But I believe it is important to tailor acting classes to the student’s needs so that they will be able to grow in their abilities.
I want to work with each student through a piece of either their choosing or my choosing. Because I have experience in the field, I will coach each student individually through methods that work best for them. If you have an audition coming up, I can coach you in the best way to ace that audition. If you're just getting your foot in the door, I can teach you the basics.
