My daughter, Marissa, had her first lesson with Tracy today. Marissa said Miss Tracy was nice, straight-forward, and immediately was able to help her work on improving how to approach a character. She was very detailed in her explanations and able to catch and adjust some regional word pronunciation. From my standpoint as a parent, she is very prompt in responding, professional, and always follows through with what she says she will do. I highly recommend her as an acting coach.Mar 29, 2020Verified
Tracy is such an understanding teacher. In the very first lesson she was able to help break me out of my nervous shell and really bring to light the emotions I needed to successfully complete my monologue. She was able to pinpoint the values I held as an individual and incorporate them into the lesson. Not to mention, she really pushed me to fix what problems I had with the monologue in a way that I did not find to be uncomfortable or forced. Truly a good match for anyone looking to begin their journey into the craft of acting.Mar 3, 2020Verified
I have only had one lesson so far and I already know that she will help me become the actress I know I can be. She knows her craft and coaches you in a way that actually helps you, she doesn’t sugar coat, and she makes you work hard. If you want to become a better actor/actress, choose her to help get you there.Mar 19, 2020VerifiedTracy Kolis Larson's reply
Thank you so much Bailee! So appreciate it! Keep up the great work!
Tracy is excellent so far. I have trouble finding my voice and emotions and she’s a very effective teacher at helping me through this complex process. I’m not an actor but need help with public speaking and he acting techniques are just as applicable. Her attitude, professionalism and advice are top notch. She makes me feel comfortable and I’m excited to see how we progress.Mar 11, 2020Verified
Tracy was a great teacher! She made me feel comfortable off the bat and worked with me to open up. She also answered all my questions about the business. I can tell I improved even over the course of one lesson. Will definitely be coming back for more!Oct 20, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $75 an hour. I do not charge extra if we happen to go over, unless there is another client waiting. If you prefer, I will also do 1/2 hour sessions for $40.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, you have to feel that you can trust me and be safe with me. We won't get to anything that's real or honest within you if you are not comfortable. So we will start with reading a monologue, scene or speech (of your choice) so we can see where you are in your process. I will give you direction and advise you and then we can take it from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I Graduated from the High School of Performing Arts in New York. Then i graduated with Honors from SUNY Purchase Conservatory in White Plains New York. I have been a member of Sag-Aftra since 1984. My training is in my resume! And yours will be too!
