Private Coaching

Porter teaches private lessons as well as coaching for TV, film and theatre auditions. Actors have booked roles on NCIS, THE MIDDLE, JANE THE VIRGIN, GREY’S ANATOMY, THE FOSTERS, CHICAGO FIRE and many others after coaching with Porter.  Several have tested for series regulars and large studio feature roles as well.

Here are just a few testimonials:

“I have nothing but glowing things to say about Porter.  She has been my acting coach for the past four years, and working with her has led to a multitude of callbacks and several television bookings, including a top-of-show guest star on NCIS: Los Angeles.  Porter is incredibly skilled at breaking down scenes and finding ways to add layers and depth I would have previously never thought of.  She also gives direction in ways that are easy to understand and to translate into performance.  In addition to private coaching, Porter is also excellent at assisting in self-taping, taking the time to get the best performance to send off to casting. One of the self-tapes she worked with me on resulted in a booking with a New York office for a Showtime series. She is truly invested in the success of the actors she works with and knows how to play to each individual’s strengths.  Her rates are also some of the fairest in town, which makes it easy for me to make her my go-to when it comes to private coaching.” – VyVy N.

“Porter is wonderful! She brings a scene to life by carving out the details from blocking to emotion. She has really good insight and she also doesn’t charge an arm and a leg! I feel very confident walking into big rooms after working with her. Definitely recommend her!” – Niousha J.

“I’ve been coaching with Porter Kelly for roughly two years. She is my go-to coach. Her methods are quick and efficient. I feel very confident and prepared when I leave her session. I find that since I started coaching with Porter my positive result rate has increased. I deem a “positive result” to be an avail, a callback, or a booking. Porter is most proficient at guiding the actor to a TV-ready performance. She works with the actor to dissect the script and get all the nerves out. I highly recommend Porter to anyone who is ready to take the next step in the booking process.” – AJ C.

“Porters uses her clear understanding of the characters and script to help me define and be very specific with my character choices.  I always feel more confident and prepared after Porter has coached me.” – Tiffany J.

Porter also does career coaching for new actors as well as those looking to bring their careers to the next level, whatever that may be.
