    Mrs. Greenwood doesn’t treat her business as a job, she teaches with passion and excitement this is one of the thing about her that stood out the most it was never a dull moment acting for her!! She’s fun and at the same time she’s firm!!

  • Leo Vaughns Jr bka Mr. Kirkpatrick

    Mrs Jeanette is awesome, not only with adults but the students. I have been an educator at Kirkpatrick Middle School for 28 years and this is the first time, myself and my students have presented a production and short film. Our school has never presented a production. Mrs Jeanette is committed, dedicated, and love her talents, to which she use productively. She is a great inspiration not only to our school but the community. Her dedication and passion for people makes performing interesting and exciting. She uses her skills and abilities to ensure that the actors are confident and strives to build relationships with all those she encounter. Her personality, smile and words of encouragement are priceless.

  • Johnny Richardson

    She’s a great teacher first. When you are doing good she will let you know. When you are not doing good she’s going to let you know and get the best out of you. She will speak her mind and put her feet down. She’s a overall great teacher and actor.

FAQs


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

Because we all learn differently, I assess the needs of each of my student to ensure the information I provide will be effective in their learning process.  I want to make sure it registers.  I teach on a level that a 4 year old would understand and I make it fun enough that at 99 year old would enjoy.  I make new students comfortable not with me only, but they first must be comfortable with themselves.


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

I have a Masters Degree in Adult Education & Training and I've studied over 20 years in Performing arts.  I performed as an adolescent into adulthood with various performing arts entitites with hands-on training by several well known voice, vocal and performing arts coaches. 

I've written and directed plays for 20 years and publicly produced over 10 productions where I've worked as casting directing, producer and director.

2015 I was voted "Playwright of the Year"

2016 I won a Telly Award for casting director for PSA "Alliance For Children" nonprofit

2017 I served Vice-President of Women in Film Dallas

2017- My youth was interviewed by NBC/Telemundo in regards to film "ALONE" that was written by one of my acting students and produced by me. National coverage on my anti-bullying film

2017- My youth received 2nd place in Children Mental Health Awareness Creative Arts contest for a PSA short film "SARAH" that we created

Our prices includes a nonrefundable $50 registration fee and $40 per class.  Students are responsible to pay for duration of classes and there is a $40 cancellation fee if student must cancel classes prior to end of class agreement. 


How did you get started teaching?

Since I was 18 years old I worked as an instructor,  I am now 50...so that haven't been that long as you've noticed. I started out as a Daycare Teacher then later went back to school to get a degree in teaching.  I started teaching acting in 2009, when I wrote my first public stage play.  I grabbed some untrained actors to put on a show and coached them throughout the process.  The show was a sell-out and a HIT! I knew then that my gift was to train.  I've been training every since.  


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with beginners and professionals of all ages and ethnicities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We were on NBC Dallas News 4/18/19 talking about film "Den of Artists" a film I wrote about Peer Pressure.

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

I suggest you talk to them one on one for any questions you may have then ask if you can sit in on a class before you commit to hiring them.  Make sure you have chemistry that works together, because it requires work on both parts.


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

1. What are your acting goals?

2. How soon do you want to meet these goals?

3. How much work do the STUDENT plan to put in?

4. How much work will the TEACHER contribute.
