What former students have to say about working with Iam Coulter*:
“I think the trademarks of a truly impactful teacher are flexibility and personalization – the ability to tailor an experience for a student regardless of that student’s previous experience. Iam Coulter is that, and so much more. Whether you are brand new to Shakespeare, or whether you are well-versed, Iam Coulter will give you an experience personalized entirely for you and what you are looking for. Deeply passionate, infectiously giving, and highly intelligent, the best advice I could give any artist: GO. NOW.”
