Amanda is a natural born teacher. I’ve learned so much from her already. Not only does she have strong speaking and acting skills, she is absolutely hilarious which makes learning and practicing a joy. I’m thrilled I’ve found her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I start with a base rate of $80/hour depending on the need of the student. If assistance is needed with script writing/editing then we can discuss an hourly rate in addition to the session rate. If we do meet in real life, I will incorporate a studio fee so we have a neutral space to work. I never want anything to be unaffordable, so don't hesitate to reach out! We'll be able to make something work!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I really like having a quick phone call or Zoom meeting just to make sure that we would be a good fit - that's important for the both of us! I want to be sure that I will be able to help you with what you need. From there, we can set up a virtual or a 'real life' session.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied theatre, film and television at the University of Colorado in Denver. I've studied improv at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York and iO in Chicago. I've produced and hosted numerous sketches and shows, and have been on multiple seasons of Hack My Life on Trutv.
