all kinds for all types of roles.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

worked with an actor that he came with his own understanding of the character but I started working with him and I notice that all the actors that going to go to the audition were going to do the same thing and wanted to help him stand out so we took different chances and decieded to change the approach of the character to make him interesting instead of the norm. and it works. he didn't book that role but the director like what he did and offer him a different role and bigger.

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

never go to an audition by just saying i will say my lines and never say wrong choice better then no choice at all that is the worse thing you can do as well if you think your choice is right is better to always have a coach that see what you have that will give you confidence 

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

just by making the choice of getting a coach for there audition is the best thing they do and any question that runs in there head they will get an answer for it.
