Professor at Berklee
"I took two improv courses with Chad during the covid pandemic! I have to say that initially I was a little skeptical about taking an improv course via zoom, but the courses were AMAZING."
Why are Online Classes Better?
Here are some benefits of doing classes online:
Thanks to these and other perks, online classes are a fast and effective way to learn. Now, you may be wondering, how exactly do online classes work?
Senior Web Developer
“I thoroughly enjoyed the improv class with Chad (so much so that I'm taking it again). The online sessions were perfect for learning and practicing skills for conversation, storytelling, and public speaking.”
How Do Online Classes Work?
We'll do three main things during the classes:
It's that simple: explanation, practice, and demo. That's all you need to become a more confident, effective communicator!
Luckily, the next series of classes starts soon...

Keynote Speaker & Presentation Coach
"Off-the-hook amazing. I learned so many practical techniques that apply to all aspects of communications whether business or personal. The new skills will easily help me amplify my ability to be a more effective communicator. Thank you Chad!"
Customer Success Manager
“I took this course to practice creative thinking, challenge myself, and 'get uncomfortable' - it did all of these! Chad is a patient, passionate, adaptive instructor. He loves what he does and he'll make you love it, too.”
Who is Chad Elliot?
"Because I struggled, you won't have to."
My father died when I was young, so my mother raised three kids on her own. Being a shy homeschooled kid, I wound up mostly friendless and alone.
As an adult, everything was a struggle. Since I lacked confidence and communication skills, I failed in more ways than anyone has a right to fail. I even got turned down for a job because during the interview I was slow at thinking on my feet. (Not promising for a future improvisation teacher!)
It took years of effort, but I finally learned how to enjoy public speaking, feel at ease talking with new people, and communicate confidently.
That's good news for you. Since I had to learn everything from scratch, I know how to teach the same skills to you in a step-by-step approach. I've spent over 5 years perfecting how to teach those skills in a way that's simple, fun, and engaging.
That's why I've been featured in:
And it's why I've been hired to teach by such companies as:
The bottom line: I've worked with hundreds of people of all ability levels, and I've refined what I teach so that you'll laugh a lot, learn quickly, and get results.
What Do Students Say?
“I came in with anxiety around speaking in front of small groups of people and it is all gone now.”
“I have come out more confident in all aspects of communication—speaking up in conference calls, one-on-one’s, group conversations with all eyes on me, etc…. I look forward to taking this class again in the future.”
“I learned techniques on how to have deeper and more fascinating conversations with anyone and went from nervous to confident speaking in front of a group. I recommend to anyone trying to take their social skills to the next level.”
“Chad's classes are the best because this form of creativity will improve the professional and personal aspects of your life. I have taken 2 times and plan on taking it one more before doing some private coaching.”
“Perfect for the shy, introverted person who gets tongue-tied or can't think on their feet. Taking this class really helped me in the business world.”
Business Intelligence Analyst
“I signed up to work on public speaking, and this turned out to be a really fun way to practice those skills.”
“This is the best social workout I've ever had… It's not just about learning to be funny. It's about learning how to get out of your own head so you can truly connect with other people.”
“Great for anyone trying to break out of shyness, improve conversation skills, public speaking skills, creativity, dating, interviews, etc.”
“In 8 weeks he's given me practical tools to actively listen, give impromptu speeches, and tell good stories. He's always prepared, energized, and I also appreciated his keen observations and helpful feedback.”
“I wouldn't have guessed that Improv could help people so much personally, but I saw it with my own eyes and heart—On the first day of class, I saw new students enter the classroom tentative and unsure, then 8 weeks later, they were much more confident and had gained so many new skills.”
Diane Ho Buxton
“I took Chad's class to get better at public speaking and learn to speak more spontaneously, and the class exceeded my expectations.”
“Chad really delivers on helping with trigger the parts of the mind that our culture suppresses: creativity, spontaneity, and fun. The class was so effective I did a second round, where I built and practiced what I learned earlier.”
Product and Engineering Leader
“Chad is a fantastic instructor. He truly cares about his students, pushing them out of their comfort zone to get out of their head and be more comfortable in front of an audience.”
Samia Bel Abbes
“Chad’s class has it all: he lifts you up with his good-humored energy, he keeps you on your toes with a fast-paced roll of fun and challenging exercises, he pushes you with insightful and honest feedback.”
Real Estate Agent
“I can't remember a time when I laughed as much and simultaneously pushed through fears that have hindered me for years.”
“I got more out of this class than I was hoping for! We played and had fun as an improv class, but we also applied what we were learning to real-life, day-to-day situations.”
Each class in the series has a different focus and builds on previous classes. Here's a brief listing of what we cover each week:
Week 1: Rediscover Your Creativity
Week 2: Flow with the Unexpected
Week 3: Conversational Magic Part I
Week 4: Conversational Magic Part II
Week 5: Public Speaking Made Simple
Week 6: The Art of Storytelling
Week 7: Unleash Your Charisma
Week 8: Next Level Thinking
While each week has a different focus, ideas do get revisited. For example, nonverbal communication is the focus of the fifth class, but we'll also work on it in most of the other classes.
Plus, you'll get tons of fun practice with each skill through simple improv games. That means, as you learn to handle everything from interviews to presentations, you'll build your ability to think on your feet creatively, too.
It's unlike than anything else out there. It's far more practical than regular improv classes. It's far more fun and active than regular communication or public speaking classes. And much of the material simply isn't available elsewhere, because I designed it and refined it to meet the needs of my students.
Most people have to miss a class or two during the series. I understand and designed the series with that in mind. Missing one or two won't stop you from getting phenomenal benefits from the overall series. Naturally, it's best to attend as many classes as you can.
Many of my students over the years have spoken English as a second language. They've always done very well in the classes.
While your English skills don't have to be perfect, you do have to be conversational. You need to be able to understand most of what people say in English. And you need to be able to speak it well enough to be understood most of the time.
No, the classes are meant to be done as a series. You wouldn't get the same experience if you just joined a single class. Also, there are a limited number of spots, and they're reserved for students who commit to the entire series. If people came for just a class or two, the class size would fluctuate dramatically and it would hurt everyone's experience.
But remember, once you finish the series, if you aren't satisfied with the results, you can get a complete refund.
While I offer a complete refund if you attend the series and aren't satisfied, I can't provide a refund if you simply don't show up. There are a limited number of spots and the classes sell out far in advance. By signing up, you reserve one of those spots for yourself. Even if you don't attend, it takes a spot away from somebody else.
If you sign up for the classes and later discover that you won't be able to attend, let me know as soon as possible. Ideally, a week or more before the class series starts. If I can fill your spot with someone else, I'm happy to give you a refund or transfer you to a later series.
