Sarah Baskin is that virtual cup of peppermint tea that our ten year old looks forward to. Not only does she center each scene, her level of focus and coaching is next-level, especially when sides can seem overwhelming to turn around in a short period of time. She thoughtfully walks through each line with her professional suggestions while at the same time allowing him to create and develop the character(s); albeit stage or screen. He feels a sense of peace and accomplishment during his virtual sessions with Sarah. As parents, we feel Sarah's style and incredible focus is a crucial asset for acting choices. We HIGHLY recommend Sarah Baskin.
