About this pro

Spanish: I am a professional teacher with 20 years of teaching Spanish and ESL. During the course, the native Spanish speaking teacher covers the following topics: Spanish speaking, Spanish pronunciation, Spanish writing, Spanish grammar rules, Spanish vocabulary, Spanish conversation, and communication skills. I am a native speaker of Spanish and have a degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston in Education and Spanish Literature. My focus is to make sure my students become fluent and understand basic to intermediate/advanced Spanish and that they are able to communicate clearly in the targeted language.

Acting: I am a full-time actor. My approach is training my students not just in scene and monologue study but really understand the business of acting from a working actor myself. I can work with you on monologues, script analysis, cold reads, audition preparation, what's new in the market. Marketing yourself, headshots resume, the business of acting and more. I am not a theater teacher, I am a film, commercials and teach you the ropes of how to get started on your acting career.

Starting an acting career can be frustrating especially if you are not familiar with the lingo or you don't know where to start. So many people will tell you different things and may end up advising you incorrectly. This is why I decided to teach others the ropes with an affordable rate and have done extensive research on the subject so you don't have to. My biggest passion is to teach my students the reality of this industry and at the same time give you the motivation, encouragement, connections, and tools you will need to get going and become amazing and successful.

Spanish: I enjoy teaching my onw language to students who are seeking to improve their spanish, need help with spanish lessons from High School or College. Perhaps you have an upcoming trip and would like to sharpen your spanish conversation and/or you have a business trip coming up and would like a crash course on the basics and how to manage yourself in a spanish speaking country, or you simple want to impress your spanish friends, or need to learn spanish for a role you have been cast to in a film.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Eli on the rainiest day here in Boston..she brought the sun out! The knowledge,sincerity and training I received from her will certainly set me in the right direction with some of the best resources available here in Boston. Her enthusiasm and demeanor really helped me understand the world of acting and I do so much want to be apart of that. Thank you Eli...for sharing what you have learned and experienced and for opening that door so willingly for those that take the steps in those directions. Cheryl Carter

    EVERYTHING!!!!! Honestly I learn so much from Eli not just in the Acting word but about life as well. I booked my first principle thanks to Eli’s teaching and training. I got the opportunity to work with Mark Walhberg and I can’t thank her enough.Thank you Eli for your guidances, providing me your point of view, telling me about your experiences, which I learn a lot from, your tips, your recommendations, for pushing me to become a better person, and much more. Can’t say enough about Eli. She truly knows her staff and has done her research really good. Definitely recommend her class and you will notice the difference even on the first day.

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

There are a lot of scammers in the world of Entertainment and so many of them charge high prices and are not trained or are working actors. Trut is they simple want your money and could be giving you misinformation. Make sure whoever you hire has learned acting techniques and understands the process of auditioning and what it takes to be an actor as well as the business side of it.

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

Prices, time, experience, can they meet your vision.
