Acting, Improv And Public Speaking Lessons
I have taught improv and acting to children for many years, first in NYC and currently in the Philadelphia area. I also Coach students of all ages in acting, public speaking and eliminating anxiety. I can work in groups, or privately to create an individualized curricula of exercises to instill proper breathing and vocal techniques, improve articulation and combat nervousness. Work with clients to eliminate negative speech patterns (monotone, sing-song intonations, mumbling, hesitation, stuttering, etc.) and/or distracting physical habits (e. g., shuffling, blinking, head bobbing, weaving, immobility, etc). Train students in methods geared specifically to overcome glossophobia (the fear of public
speaking). Developed an improvisation and theater arts program for children aged six to 12 which incorporates scene
work and improvisation games tailored towards boosting self-confidence, exploring creative methods of conflict resolution,
improving physical awareness.
