Teaching/Directing

Yvonne has been teaching, coaching and directing at the collegiate level since 1998. She has been hired as an adjunct, visiting guest artist and guest lecturer at the University at Albany, Siena College, Skidmore College, Union College and Adelphi University. Yvonne brings her collaborative spirit to fellow faculty members, and real world experience to her students. In the words of a recent student,

"In a department where I often feel pretty coddled your real world advice and 'down to earthness' were refreshing and so, so appreciated!
If you have any other notes for me I'd love to hear them--I definitely value your opinion!"

Here are some of the classes she has been hired to teach:
-Fundamentals of Acting
-Acting One
-World Theatre History
-Audition Techniques and the Business of 'The Biz"
-Acting for the Camera

She is often asked to present her special lecture on "Careers in Acting", and does private monologue and audition coaching in her home.
