About this pro

I am an Iranian actor, director, and playwright. I started my acting career from the Samandarian acting school in Tehran/Iran. After my immigration to the US in 2008, I started my academic curriculum in acting at Santa Monica College of Los Angles, after which she transferred to the University of Maryland where I received my B.A. in theatre. I then completed my MFA in acting with a concentration on directing at Regent University, Virginia Beach, VA. I enjoy teaching acting as much as performing on the stage. Being a teacher was one of my sweetest dreams since childhood, which has now come true, and no occupation in my life is more joyful for me than teaching acting. I have 7 years of experience in acting instructorship at different levels, however mainly for adults. Through these years, the most encouraging feedback I have been receiving from my students is that they enjoy my style of instructorship which eases learning deep and complex concepts in an easy and fun way so that everyone understands them and enjoys. I have taught several methods and techniques of acting, such as Stanislavsky, Meisner, and also monologue preparation for acting auditions. Moreover, I have helped students in learning how to have a professional presentation of themselves when applying to available acting positions.

    Parisa was a real joy and pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

  • Fatemeh Hadi

    Our acting instructor always had a smile on her face. She dealt with every situation with utmost positivity and turned every otherwise-awkward one to a group laughter. She showed great flexibility in response to our needs in terms of class time, assignments and final project. Last but not the least, because of her instructions, I know a lot more about acting and I am a far better actor :)

    Parisa is an amazing instructor, she is full of energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and passion! Her class was the first acting class that I attended and really enjoyed it and got even more interested in acting! Her class is not just an acting class, but a class where I could develop communication, interaction, and other skills through a lot of different practices. Would attend more of classes definitelyz

FAQs


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

I always ask new students about what they want to learn about acting. If they are beginners then I help them to improve their knowledge about acting in the easiest way to understand the fundamentals of acting skills and methods then, we will work on them. But If they have some experience in acting and they want to improve their skills, then, I will help them to gain their skills by using the methods and activities to achieve their goals.
