I offer coaching for Actors and aspiring Actors. My students focus on developing stage presence, learning short monologues and scenes, building audition skills, and developing their vocal/facial/physical expression.
I always focus on enjoyment in the lesson, as the best learning happens when we're having fun. I also work hard to build confidence and stage presence. Finally, as a Vocal Coach, I focus on improving the power, beauty and expression of the voice as a tool for the Actor. A main priority is instilling proper vocal health to avoid voice damage.
I also enjoy working with singers of all ages and ability levels. I've worked with dozens of "tone deaf" students to help them develop their ability to sing, and frequently train teachers in working with singers who struggle. On the other hand, I have many professional students who are professional singers and performers and work on highly advanced technique.
In addition, I've been a math tutor for the last decade for students of all ages. I specialize in standardized test prep, particularly SAT/ACT. I have near perfect scores on both tests and I'm a member of MENSA and the Triple 9 Society.
When my Acting students connect deeply with a character/role and feel themselves reaching a new level of skill through our work together it's very rewarding. Many of my students have landed their first lead roles after our work together, and seeing a student I've coached go on to a starring role on stage is always a thrilling experience.
Singing is one of the most vulnerable things a human can do. Learning to sing confidently makes someone feel much better about themselves and can dramatically improve self-esteem. I love seeing the smile on a singer's face when something 'clicks' and they hear their voice in a new way.
In my math tutoring/standardized test prep work the most enjoyable aspect is helping students learn to understand math more deeply and enjoy it. Math anxiety is real and many people feel a lot of negative emotion around math. Helping students overcome the stress associated with math and make it more enjoyable while improving their skills and test scores is great feeling.
All the work I do is done through the lens of a lifecoach/mentor. I focus on habit formation, overcoming anxiety, and developing self-confidence in every subject I teach. My students come out of a coaching session feeling more in control and less stressed about the challenge of our work together.
