“Elizabeth is the coach you didn't know you needed! At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, after one session with her you'll know why working with other coaches never felt as educational, empowering, and like your career is moving forward. Implementing the same strategies that's made her a currently working actor, her experience, 'take charge' and 'can do' attitude, passion and honesty, personal availability to her clients, and deep understanding of how both the actor's mind works and the industry works, makes her the ultimate coach. Do yourself a favor and work with Elizabeth!”

-Britni R. B.

“If you are serious about acting and looking for an excellent coach, look no further. Elizabeth exceeded my expectations in her role as acting coach for my son. She worked with him to prepare him for his auditions to the schools in which he was applying for BFA programs. I'm beyond pleased to say he was accepted into every school he applied to, ultimately attending his first choice program.

Not only did Elizabeth work with him on his craft, audition prep and interview prep; she was encouraging and supportive to both parent and student. Even through his first year in his BFA program she continually checked in with the family to inquire about his overall well being. This type of support is over and above what anyone could expect. I can't speak highly enough of our experience with Elizabeth. She made the process painless!!”

“Elizabeth's guidance and expertise was vital during the college admissions process. My son simply could not have been better prepared for his auditions. The personal growth and confidence that Carlo has experienced is directly attributable to his work with Elizabeth and we are sincerely grateful.

No matter where my son's path leads him, I am thankful that he has had the opportunity to work with Elizabeth. She is more than a coach to my son - her mentorship has changed the trajectory of my son's hopes and dreams. Carlo's appreciation and understanding for the art of acting has blossomed more than either of us thought possible and he is looking forward to continuing to work with Elizabeth on his craft

Everytime I talk to Carlo he is so happy and excited and immersing himself and LOVING Tisch. And it's because of Elizabeth. I'm so grateful for her!”

-Terry D.

“Elizabeth is not only an incredible acting coach, but she is also a wonderful role model and is a delight to work with. After my very first session with her, I already felt as if I had grown tremendously and was a more confident performer. She is committed to each and every one of her clients, and works as hard as she can to make sure they feel prepared for any audition. Elizabeth helped me get into my absolute dream school, NYU Tisch. I truly believe that meeting with her once a week made a huge impact on my preparedness for all my college auditions, and I would not have been able to achieve my professional goals without her. She is a force to be reckoned with. I'm so grateful I was able to work with Elizabeth. I couldn't have made it to Tisch without her love and guidance. She is amazing!”

-Julianna G.

She inspires confidence in young actors, teaches them how to perform at their highest level, is personable and sensitive in working them and has a true understanding and love for the art of acting.

Her work brought out the best in my daughter and helped place her in one of the top universities in the country. I recommend her highly!”

“Elizabeth Greer is nothing short of a brilliant teacher and mentor. She was incredibly successful in helping me get into all 4 of my top colleges including NYU, USC, Chapman and UCLA. She is kind and helpful and always pushed me to be my best, helping me constantly grow as an actor.”


“My daughters 19 and 16 years old have worked with Elizabeth Greer. My older daughter prepared for her college acting auditions with Elizabeth. Of the 14 auditions she was accepted to 9 schools. Including the offers for BFA programs in Acting at USC, NYU, Mulenberg, and Syracuse University...etc. Elizabeth assisted with finding the material that would properly showcase our daughters, as well as mentored them to find a strong inner voice and learn sold skills for audition prep that she still uses today. I would highly recommend Elizabeth for both the beginning and experienced actor. She creates a safe nurturing environment but still challenges the actors to work to find the truth of the moment.”
