My sessions work more as a coaching experience for those looking to develop more confidence, which is definitely a key part of exceeding as an actor. I will explore the techniques that my student has learned before and dive deeper in those if they wish to have a more in depth experience or I will bring my own suggestions by choosing techniques that I know and that I believe would fit my student.
I can also help directors, writers and producers understand better their actors. When you put yourself in someone else' shoes, you are able to fully comprehend their work.
Samantha is one of our best tutors. High-quality profile and excellent qualifications, organised and responsive to lesson requests, appreciated by their students!
I am a sound designer/writer/actress who recently acquired a journalism certificate as a passion project. From a young age I have been involved with theatre and was never able to shake the feeling that storytelling was my calling. I pursued training in Los Angeles first, then in São Paulo, where I was able to learn about Method Acting and Stanislavski and finally in Canada, where I graduated with honours from the acting program at Vancouver Film School, right before earning a BFA from UFV with two extended minors, one in Theatre and one in Media and Communication.
Excellent! I've only had one true session with her where we went over a monolog she gave me to send to her. She was super patient with me. I think everyone has nerves the first time you have to actually "act" in front of someone other that your reflection. She gave great feedback (especially for the first lesson) and she gave great explanations to things if you weren't sure what she was asking for. All in all, I will continue with Samantha and look forward to our next lesson!
Perfect! Samantha is a great tutor. She has much knowledge about the subject and explains in details what she is explaining. If you have a question and she doesn’t have the answer, she will do a lot of research to give you as much information as possible. She is kind and a very hardworking person, and a over all great person to learn with.
Teaching Sarah is an amazing experience! She is always on top of things and prepared for the class. Always has pertinent questions and is very direct when asking them.
I've known Samantha personally for a few years, and have been her director on set before. Anything other than a stellar recommendation wouldn't do her justice.
Samantha is patient, kind, a good instructor and most importantly has a very good grasp and understanding of acting, I would recommend her to anyone looking for acting lessons
Samantha is really great at giving advice and helping you understand the different layers of a character. As a writer/director, my work usually involves improv and drama and Samantha helped me by opening my eyes to a new way of interacting with actors by understanding their needs.
I have known Samantha for many years, and she has always demonstrated exceptional dedication, integrity, and skills in her craft. I highly recommended anyone interested in becoming an actor to learn from Samantha. Her patience and attention to detail will ensure that you learn and develop the skills you need to excel in the acting world.
Samantha is a great artist and coach. She understands the craft, knows very well how to communicate with people.
Understand what an actor must go through to achieve a good performance and will help you with that
Samantha was truly helpful, I was not used to self tape auditions and she guided me through text analysis and character development for an organic performance and I nailed the audition! I highly recommend her.
