I have a degree in theatre and I’m currently working on my second degree in theatre. I teach at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre and I have tons of acting experience. I have worked with people on Broadway and I run a small theatre troupe.
I love teaching. It is amazing to see students finally get something after trying hard, that feeling is something all teachers love.
I came to Logan not with acting aspirations, but for help with my confidence and public speaking skills. I naturally excelled in neither, but as a teacher, both of those soft skills are required in spades. Since our talks, I've become much more comfortable in my own skin and in front of my class, enabling me to "perform" for my students and really get them engaged in the lessons, even when they contain otherwise dry content. I'm so thankful for his teaching me to allow myself to step out of my comfort zone. I love how supportive and encouraging he is, and I look forward to more lessons with him.
I met him in a Meisner masterclass a year ago and became his student a couple weeks ago. He directs me to auditions he thinks I am good for.
He really helped me get over my anxiety.
He is really passionate about acting and he really likes teaching.
I start my first lesson with a new student as a getting-to-know-you lesson, asking what plays they have read and enjoyed, seeing the expectations of me, and working on developing a system of trust that is needed when working on theatre.
I have a degree in Dramatic Arts and I am getting a degree in Acting currently. I have done training scenarios, improv, plays, movies, musicals, and I have taught people how to do so. I have directed and worked with Broadway actors and I run a small theatre troupe.
I usually charge $15 an hour, although I do often make exceptions for people who need it.
I started tutoring my freshman year of college, I tutored so much that people eventually asked me to teach them outside of class.
My youngest student is 7 years old and my oldest is 35. I work with anybody who is willing to learn.
One of my students goes to UCF and she recently auditioned for the BFA Acting Program and got in. She got the email during our lesson and she was super happy.
A lot of acting teachers, because it is a common dream, are scams. Unfortunely, that's true. So I would be careful with who you trust, don't go to someone who isn't worth their salt.
What type of acting do you want to do? How much of your time is dedicated to rehearsal? Are you willing to work hard for acting?
