Jonathan Wessel - Acting Coach


About this pro

I'm passionate about helping others achieve their goals of being performing artists and love mentoring young actors in this tough and competitive business. I will work hard and dedicate myself fully to each and every student. 

I've been teaching acting for 6 years, mostly to junior high and high school students in the Chicago area. 

As an actor, I studied the Meisner Method in Chicago and have been performing in theater for the past 13 years. In recent years I've moved over to film and television. Films include Happy Together, The Over-Mountain Men: The Price of Freedom, Wink At Me, There, Night Guard and Counter Column, and will be starring as Wulfric in the TV series Knight's End. 

I love working with children and helping them grow as performing artists. I love mentoring and sharing my passion with others who are interested in acting and storytelling. Acting is my biggest passion and being able to teach others the lessons I've learned is a big part of who I am.

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

My first session is an introduction and evaluation time where I get to know the student and learn their strong and weak points so I can most effectively teach you. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied the Meisner method at Green Shirt Studio in Chicago and on-camera acting at Acting Studio Chicago.
