About the lesson
My method is exploration-based. I don't believe that there is one correct answer to a question when it comes to artistic pursuits, and I know that every actor needs some trial and error to find the methods that work best for them. I offer tools for young actors to use as they see fit.
My own education included the methods of great acting teachers, and I like to adapt their tried-and-true methods to suit a modern mindset. Acting often involves strategy and discipline, but it also requires imagination. Great performances come from moments of discovery in addition to careful training.

I have been acting, facilitating, or working in theatre for over half of my life. From the stage to working in the wings, from acting to writing, from cutting scripts and music to facilitating auditions, from makeup and costumes to scene coaching and set design, I've seen theatre arts from just about every angle.
Working with Elizabeth was an incredibly beneficial experience. She gave constructive feedback in a timely manner that helped me further develop my paper's analysis. Elizabeth's keen eye for editing guided me in refining my paper at a sentence level, as well. Her personable demeanor made her very easy to work with and made me feel comfortable asking questions.
Elizabeth was a fantastic help on a short story of mine. She quickly and efficiently spotted mistakes I made, then pointed them out to me. From missed commas to missed opportunities for thematic consistency, she honed in on specifics to improve my writing, and she was always supportive of both me and the work. Because of her, the short story was recently shortlisted for a magazine. I cannot thank her enough.
Elizabeth is an amazing English teacher. She understood the tone of my work and provided thoughtful critique while fostering open collaborative dialogue. She was always willing to further explain her notes and help me dig deeper as a writer. She is a sharp editor and acts as the perfect first read to any project.
I approached Elizabeth for input on some poetry I was looking to publish. After knowing Elizabeth for several years by now, and her reputation for phenomenal writing advice preceding her, I had no doubt in my mind she was the perfect woman for the job. In no time at all, she responded with some of the most effective, constructivel feedback I had ever received in years of studying how to write. No professor or instructor I’ve ever encountered has ever given me the same “Ah-ha!” moment that Elizabeth did. After adding her suggestions in, I saw my work really come to life and take a breath of fresh air, and I’m astounded at just how much better she made it. When she gave me her advice, I just remember hyperventilating and yelling “Oh my God! Oh my God! That’s so perfect!” Elizabeth, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for all your help.
