For any other questions about our private coaching program, please email studio@act-sf.org.

Our coaches help students to be seen, heard, and understood at their personal best. Many students seek individual attention from a coach in preparation for graduate school auditions, booking a gig, or nailing a presentation at work.

Studio A.C.T. coaches are drawn from our exceptional faculty roster. They are all industry professionals with distinguished careers as artists, educators, and public speakers. The coach assigned to you will depend on (1) the subject of your coaching session, and (2) faculty availability. If you sign up for multiple sessions you will be paired with one coach throughout. You may request a specific coach, but Studio A.C.T. cannot guarantee that the coach you request will be available.

Each private coaching session is 60 minutes, priced at $115.00 per session. At checkout, you may indicate how many session(s) you would like to sign up for.

All refund requests must be sent in writing to both your coach and the Studio A.C.T. Inbox at studio@act-sf.org.

In the event you must cancel a scheduled private coaching session, a full refund can only be given if we receive a written request by email at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled session. Full refunds are also given if either the coach or Studio A.C.T. must cancel the session and it is not possible to reschedule.

All private coaching sessions will be conducted online until further notice. Click here to learn more about A.C.T.'s updates related to COVID-19.
