About Bill

Hi, I'm Bill. I'm an experienced actor and teacher. I have more than 30 years of experience as a performer in film, television and on stage. For the last 12 years, in addition to continuing my performing, I have been teaching drama and acting at a performing arts magnet middle school here in the Los Angeles area. In my teaching capacity I am responsible for putting on two fully staged plays per academic year. I've also received a VIC (Video In the Classroom) and LAUSD Film Award for student work.

I love working with teenaged performers! My students feel that I create a safe environment that allows for experimentation while building confidence. I will work with student actors to help them learn how to analyze a script by asking character-based questions that will lead to the creation of a fully realized, believable performance. We will use character analysis, imagination and substitution techniques all in a nurturing, caring, and safe environment.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Theatre

I have a BFA in Drama Production from the University of AZ. I have been teaching drama for the last 12 years at the middle school level and have subject matter authorization as part of my California teaching credential. I am a 25 year + member of SAG-AFTRA. I am an active member of Theatre West (LA's oldest continuously operating theatre company) where I just completed my second term on their board of directors.
