Theater

I hold a BA in Theater from UCLA and have acted in over 20 productions over the last decade across theater, film, and radio. I have additional training from the American Conservatory Theater (ACT) in San Francisco and the Independent Shakespeare Company in LA. As a teaching artist, I have directed youth theater, privately coached actors of varying skill and experience levels, and hosted classes and workshops in a range of subjects, including audition technique, acting fundamentals, and Shakespeare (one of my favorites to teach!).

Wonderful tutor!

We feel so fortunate to have found Elana! Patient, kind, uber-prepared, and fun, she has made tutoring sessions engaging and productive for our daughter. We highly recommend Elana to anyone looking for a superb tutor for their child.

positive, fun, and knowledgable

We were very impressed with Elana. My kids had a lot of fun. They had their acting lesson on Friday evening. It was the perfect start to the weekend. I was planning on catching up with work during their lesson, but instead my husband and I pulled up chairs to watch. They were so funny!

Great with high schoolers

Elana helped my Freshman brother review and understand Romeo and Juliet. He liked her teaching style, friendliness, and flexibility. I gave her his study material ahead of time and was prepared to tutor. Most importantly, my brother learned and got a much better grade on his book final than last semester!

Fantastic Acting, Tutor/Coach

Elana really knows the craft of acting and can engage you in shaping your performance and making your characters more relatable and believable. She has the experience and can also communicate the important elements that you are looking for- which is a rarity. I recommend her highly!
