In this 4-week, 40-minutes-per-week private coaching session, I will help you work on any of your acting goals, such as choosing monologues, preparing a monologue, working on sides for an upcoming audition, improving acting skills, practicing scene study skills or cold reading, creating your acting resume, learning about agents and how to get one, learning about headshots, exploring basic voice-over skills, understanding how acting in film differs from acting in theater, practicing commercial...
Students will learn about whichever topic they/their parents indicate in writing to me on the day of booking. If I believe we will not be able to cover everything you'd like to work on in four 40-minute sessions, I will let you know how much we can do or give you a choice (if you listed more than one topic or goal).

**Required: You must let me know the day you book, what you would like to work on. If I believe we will not be able to cover everything you'd like to work on in four 40-minute sessions, I will let you know how much we can do or give you a choice (if you listed more than one topic or goal). **If you are wanting help with a monologue, scene or audition side you *already have*, you will need to send me a copy of the monologue/scene/side plus any audition information you have (agent email, casting call contents or link) when you book, so I can prepare to help you. Please have your parent send me a message the day of booking or you/your parent can contact me on Outschool by posting in the classroom, since it will just be used for you, letting me know what you'd like to work on. This way I can plan ahead of time and gather any scripts or materials I may need to coach you. Parents cannot send attachments through email, but can upload scripts to the classroom.

Students will need to have any scripts/monologues that they may be needing help with (if they do not have any to prepare, none are needed) and a way to take notes (notepad and pen, pencil and paper, electronic notes, etc.). If you have specific questions you'd like answered, it is a good idea to write them down prior to our sessions, and bring them so you won't forget to ask them.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal or informal letter grade. The student will receive feedback during the sessions.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
