Introduction: *Only serious and excited Actors apply! To my prospective student who carries a gift and passion for acting! My name is Jacléne, but I also go by Jax. I am a professional working actor and have recently decided to unlock my knowledge and excitement to educate actors ages 6 and up. I have been an actor nearly all my life, beginning at the young age of five. I began by acting in community theater, and continued in middle school through high school by performing in every play and musical. My passion then led me to pursue acting as a full time career; I went on to study musical theater at Oakland University where I graduated with a BFA. Shortly after graduation I moved to NYC to gain more opportunities, enhance my career and broaden my acting experiences. While living in NYC, I starred in numerous commercials(Chase Bank, Dave and Busters, Rent The Runway, Volkswagen), Independent films (Liberty Smith in Liberty’s Secret) plays (Little Women, A Street Car Named Desire) and studied with the best acting teacher in the city-Anthony Abeson who is known for coaching Jennifer Anniston. I also studied improv at the PIT, and worked with numerous casting directors at ONE on ONE, The Green Room, and Actor's Connection. I currently have two exceptional agents, and have made lasting connections with actors, agents, and casting directors in NYC, MI, PA, and Chicago. The experience I’ve had with countless auditions and callbacks for TV, film, musicals, plays and commercials has given me insight into casting, and what it takes to actually get in the room, be memorable and book! I specifically want to work with young actors because I WISH I had the professional help and coaching from someone like me at a young age to improve my skill set and prepare me for a career in theater and film. I truly want to give young actors the confidence to nail their audition! Most importantly, my coaching will prepare my students to be the best actors they possibly can be by learning how to understand the text of their sides or script, know their character deeply, know the situation, moment before, objective, all of which will be the building blocks to use for a lifetime to acting! If you're a young actor (or parent) searching for a kind, passionate and knowledgeable teacher, I am your coach. Together we will grow your love for acting and enjoy the art of this craft together! My teacher Anthony Abeson would always say “there isn't a recipe to acting- it’s whatever works!” I strongly stand by this. No child, or teenager is the same. Everyone works differently and learns differently. There isn’t a one size fits all method like many acting studios teach. I don’t want any of my actors to be the same as the next actor who walks into an audition. I promise to work with the actor and incorporate their unique qualities and personality to grow and achieve their own skill set. Come ACT with JAX! Points of Focus: > Analyzing the script/sides > Monologue work > On camera work > Learning how to audition > College audition prep! > How to slate > Resumé and headshot help/revision > Character work > Learning to seek the truth > Building CONFIDENCE! *Please have only the parent or legal guardian contact me if under the age of 18. Thank you.* -Coaching sessions take place at my home privately, or virtually. -Partner work is available, but different fees will apply.

Jaclene responded to our inquiry very quickly, we met on a zoom a few days later and started lessons right away. She is very professional and upbeat, we have a block of lessons scheduled and I think they will be very helpful.

Ever since I had the opportunity to work with Jaclene as my acting coach it has truly been a blessing! Her acting lessons are so fun and I enjoy how she makes me feel comfortable in each class. I have learned various techniques within the past 3 months and I have also pursued auditions because of the confidence I have gained in having Jaclene as my acting coach. It feels like each session goes by so fast and I find myself eager to take a lesson each week. Thank you Jaclene!

Jacléne has helped me so much with my acting career. I’ve learned so much from her and she’s definitely helped me come out of my shell a little bit! I was struggling with my confidence as an actor, but she always encouraged me with patience and kindness. I always looked forward to our coaching sessions every week because they were so fun. I can’t wait to work with Jacléne more in the future! :)

My daughter has had a great experience with Jaclene Wilk! Typically, my daughter is more relaxed about the things she does (not very enthusiastic), but these classes have really turned on the excitement for her. Once she comes out of a class, she can’t wait for the next. A big part of this is Jaclene’s ability to make her class fun, low pressure, and educational. I can see tremendous growth in her acting ability in just a few weeks. I highly recommend Jaclene to seeking a new experience to better their craft.

I absolutely love Jaclene !!!! She is the absolute best and I would recommend ANYONE go to her for a good acting coach / teacher . She has helped sooooo much !!! I have absolutely no complaints and trust me .. if I did have any complaints I would definitely put that here but I have no complaints and I am so happy that she is my acting coach ! She helps and guides you through every aspect in acting and art itself . She even guided me through my headshot taking and I can not thank her enough ! I enjoy EVERY class . She is super flexible and super kind and understanding . I usually don’t write too many reviews but I just had to do one on her because I could not have asked for a better experience. I have been going to Jaclene for some time now and I am still learning from her and will continue to learn and grow from her . So if your looking for an acting coach , you should definitely go to her because is absolutely amazing !
