FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to do ice breakers to get to know what the student is interetsed in and try to incorporate that into what I have already set in place. I like to sit and talk with each student and get to know them idividually so I can learn their traits and triggers.

Studied Dance (Ballet; Modern; West African) at Santa Monica College

Studied Theatre & Acting at El Camino College

How did you get started teaching?

When I graduated from High School, I began working with a Non-Profit Organization that dealt with inner city youth teaching them music. My couselor though this would be great for me to try out so I agreed to work Saturdays teaching piano and music theory. Later that same here, I was in a theatre (off Broadway type) show and someone funding the show wanted the performers to teach students 2nd-12th about performing, the industry and the arts in whole. After that I fell in love with the idea of working with youth and teaching them all I had to offer, and I began working for non-profits, charter schools, academies, after-school programs and more; and the rest, as they say, is history.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have had the grand privilege of working with students of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, skill levels and even behaviors. I am proud to have had such a lucritive span thus far as an instructor.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I started my production company (J.Raul Productions) in mid 2018, and we have already (Jan 2020) done 4 plays, 7 showcases, started filming our web series and even drafted our first film.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Communicate with that teacher. There are a lot of people who will try to "get over" on you by claiming they are one thing and are actually the other, or by claiming to have/posses a skill they do not. I would say before you spend you money make sure they have invested time into something as simple >filling this out<

Also, make sure they know any past injuries you may have and they are accomidating to you comfortability level.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Is this something I really want to do/lean[about]? (nothing's worse than wasting your time and the instructors time by signing up for something you have NO (it's okay to have minimal) interest in.
