Why Yes, I Am Qualified to Tutor/Coach Acting

February 10, 2013

I have been so intensely focused on applying to teach collegiate theatre courses lately that it slipped my mind that I am immensely qualified to tutor and coach acting.  I taught theatre 101 during graduate school.  I have directed shows peopled entirely by people who considered themselves non-actors, as well as shows with young actors and new actors.  I am experienced in directing and/or critiquing the work of experienced old-hat actors in a way most assure me they find useful.  I have an arsenal of voice and movement techniques that has earned me a reputation as a cast-commodity, and I have many times been called upon by a director to run cast warmup routines (primarily due to my Linklater training).  I am adept with dialect breakdowns and analysis, and I have the full skill set of a dialect coach (complete with IPA).  I am a successful actor with two acting degrees.  One of them is the terminal degree for an actor.  Heck, why not?  Until that professorship rolls around, I should probably keep flexing my teacher muscles!  Is anyone out there in the Houston area looking for an acting coach?  Please don’t hesitate to let me know!  -E.G.D.
