About Heather I fell in love with theatre and European history as a young girl and have spent most of my life either on stage or with my head in a book.
When I started college, I struggled to decide which one I wanted to pursue in an educational environment and professionally until I realized there was nothing stopping me from doing both. Since graduation, I have spent most of my time working in childcare, but I recently decided to take the plunge and pursue acting professionally.
Since this means I have a much more flexible schedule, I decided that I wanted to share my love of both European history and theatre here in the form of teaching. I've been tutoring in various su bjects since and love helping my students discover their talents, reach new levels of understanding, and find joy in learning. I am committed to not only helping my students retain and understand the material but also find and master techniques which will allow them to continue successfully without guidance in the future. I am very patient with my students and do my best to create a fun, positive, and encouraging learning environment, but I hold my students accountable and expect a good work ethic as it is a waste more of my students' time than anything else if they are not prepared or engaged.
I want them to succeed and flourish, and that only works if both parties are motivated and ready to work. My schedule tends to be very flexible, and I am happy to offer lessons at your home, at my local library, and online. As a result, lessons are scheduled to best fit the student's needs whenever possible. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you feel like we would be a good fit. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and flourish! Heather S. About Kevan Hi!
I'm an actor, director, and playwright who loves sharing my passion for theatre with people of all ages. I am primarily an acting teacher specializing in the Meisner technique. I have had the opportunity to train from some of the country's most exceptional theatre artists, and bring a wide array of tools to my work as an acting coach. Acting is hard work, but it should be fun! I'll teach you specific techniques or we can work on specific material.
Students can expect a highly personalized experience; I like to "meet the student where they are", serving as a guide and a coach rather than an all-knowing guru. Whatever your experience, skill, or comfort level with performing may be, I will work with you using the tools in my toolbox to make you a more present, spontaneous, and engaging performer. I teach students to better understand their character and make spontaneous choices, living fully in the moment as an actor instead of worrying about "what's my next line?
I can also work with students on healthy use of voice, dialects, and movement. I'm excited to work with you! Kevan D. Los Angeles, CA. About Michael I am an award winning actor, writer and producer.
