Confidence in acting is all about finding your own process, discovering the best things that work for YOU. Whether you have an audition you're working towards, a job you're preparing for, or you want to flex your acting muscle through new material, let's hash it out!

When I was cast as a supporting lead in an HBO show years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I came from a theatre background and had never been on a set before - I learned by watching and asking the actors around me who had been doing it for years. Now, after nearly a decade in this business, I've found some things that help me that can hopefully help you. This should be fun! Feel free to check out my IMDB page for a more detailed overview.

About Meg

I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied Acting and Music Theatre. I have spent nearly a decade working in theatre, TV, film, and commercials. Credits include: HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Peacock's Mr. Mercedes, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, ABC's Nashville, and FX's American Horror Story.

Meg so great! She has real experience in tv and knows what it is actually like in LA.
Gabe
Meg is really smart at this stuff. She helped me tape an audition and I was very proud of the final outcome. She is so good at rooting you in the circumstances of the story, and enriches your performance with basic questions such as "What just happened right before this?", "Is it cold outside?" Sounds simple but makes all the difference, especially to those of us who have done this acting thing for a while. A seasoned actor herself, she has the natural eye of a director. Coach with Meg!!
Sarah
I was prepping an audition with Meg - she really gets what a scene needs and knows how to help you tap into that within yourself. I kept reading the scene one way and she helped me see how the scene functioned as a part of the episode (it was for a guest star) and required a slight emotional tweak ... her work with me landed me a callback. I am so grateful for her insight and for making every minute fun.

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

My goal is to share my knowledge as a classically trained actor and film director. I will create lesson plans catered to each individual that captures the complex and wonderful world of theatrical and on-camera performance. Students will be exposed to various acting methods created by Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, Michael Chekhov, and others. Students will participate in multiple exercises and performances that will build and strengthen their bodies, voice, mind, and heart.

So far I've had 2 lessons with Shirley and absolutely loved them. Due to family medical emergencies I had to take a 3 year hiatus from film and theater. Shirley has been very knowledgeable and energetic, and all around an incredible teacher. I am so excited to purchase more lessons.

I believe, wholeheartedly, that with the right teaching and encouragement, anyone can learn to become an actor. Both children and adult beginners will have a great time playing acting "games", (i.e. exercises) that encourage creativity and freedom of artistic expression.

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

I’ve only have had one lesson so far, but I loved it!
Sangee V.
Julia has been teaching me for quite a while now and she has been the greatest teacher I have had. She has taught me so much in such a little amount of time. She makes me feel comfortable while acting, which I find is an amazing quality for a teacher. She also acknowledges how I feel on certain scenes and takes. She is definitely a great teacher.

"Daniil worked with me on preparing multiple callback sides, both classical and contemporary. He is the kind of coach that has the specificity and honesty to push you beyond what you thought you were capable of, and to open your eyes to a new way of seeing your work. Daniil was able to connect my early experience with Meisner training to the sides that I had in front of me, in a way that was challenging but not scary. I left the session with a new handful of tools to prepare for the upcoming callbacks, and a new perspective on what it meant to reach honesty and authenticity as an actor."

"I went through the list of tutors in this site and thankfully found the perfect match for my daughter. Shauna has been a 'breathe of fresh air' since my daughter started acting training with her. Even though our sessions have only been online thus far, her presence and excellent quality of teaching can be felt as if she is sitting right next to her. My daughter loves her and she has really been able to find 'her voice' and bring out the best in her as she prepares for her High School Auditions. Shauna is not only qualified to do the job but brings to her skill set a humanistic side that really makes her student want to learn and do better. I would give ten stars if I could!!!
I wouldn't recommend anyone else to help your child perfect and master their craft."

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
