About Donny

When learning is fun, information sinks in. The student needs to be engaged and want to show up first for the teacher then the knowledge.

For that to happen the tutor/student relationship should be an enjoyable one. It's important to learn that Enjoyable can be challenging.

After the initial session, people should ask the question, 'do I want to learn from this person?'

If the immediate or delayed answer is 'yes', then that's a match.

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 can coach you through character building, relaxation exercises, vocal warmups, and running lines.
More importantly, I can help find what the character is doing in the scene. Acting is taking action, so actors need to act upon something. That something is the crux of the matter for an actor.

Once an actor finds his/her actions, then performing the scene becomes effortless.
