Sean Whalen - Acting Coach
About this pro
8 years in business
8 hires on Thumbtack
Working with Sean has been nothing but fantastic! He's very well educated, experienced, and enthusiastic about the craft. At first I was nervous about how an online acting course might go, especially since it was my first class as an adult, but Sean did a great job at breaking the ice and making it feel as if we've been working in a classroom setting for months! He gives great constructive criticism and isn't afraid to point out when you're doing something incorrectly. It's clear that he isn't teaching to get paid, but teaching to truly train you to be the best actor you can be. He goes the extra mile to make sure you're not just learning about acting, but also the business. He gives great advice and genuinely cares about his students! Other eager actors would be lucky to have Sean as a coach!Sep 10, 2018Verified
I have really enjoyed the classes. Sean brings a wealth of knowledge, perspective and experience to the table, every class. He is a very genuine and kind person which creates a comfortable learning environment and experience, no matter what skill level you may currently be. Sean’s has a true passion for acting that is contagious and cultivating. I’d highly recommend him to anyone.Aug 21, 2018VerifiedSean W.'s reply

We have completed the first 4 classes! I felt I am being pushed out of my comfort zone and being the best I can be. I look forward to continuing our work! I really felt heard and that Sean adapts to each students needs.May 18, 2018VerifiedSean W.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I like to keep my prices reasonable as I know it's tough for actors to spend extra money. If you purchase more classes than you get a bigger discount.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It all depends on the level they are starting with. If you are well trained I will challenge you in areas where you are not as comfortable to expand your repertoire. If you are a true novice, I will teach you the basic fundamentals using acting techniques that are based in Method and Meisner acting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied at UCLA Drama department, The world famous GROUNDLINGS COMEDY SCHOOL, Playhouse West with Robert Carnegie, Janet Alhanti. But most importantly I have been a working SAG member since January 1989.
