Kenshaka gave me acting lessons via video chat which is already a difficult task, but he was a great guide and mentor regardless of those obstacles. He is also very flexible and willing to be available for help outside of the scheduled lesson times. Excellent teacher and I would recommend him to others!

We highly recommend Lois For tutoring. She is well known in Honolulu and has years of experience. She tutored our granddaughter when she needed to take the entrance exams into private schools. Lois has great knowledge of children and skill in getting them to do their work. Her lessons were challenging and fun. Our grandaughter could hardly wait to return to her next session. We wish Lois was here to tutor our grandaughter in her college SATS. Carol Lehman

Joanne is a very intuitive coach. As a beginner adult, I was nervous and unsure of my abilities. Joanne took the time to assess my skill level and created a curriculum and acting exercises tailored to fit me! I've learned it's okay to be nervous, it's okay to let go and have fun. I am actually having fun taking Skype lessons and I am learning how to be authentic and real. Joanne keeps in touch between lessons to send me articles to read that will help me as well as answering questions. I couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Joanne. I'm very grateful.

During the time of operation of Let The Kids Grow Los Angeles, California 2013-2014. I had the privilege of working with and managing Mrs. Tracy Pfau, she was our head Acting instructor. She had the tasks and duties of working with underprivileged children of the community to help them stay off the streets and into the classrooms. She was able to work with children that possessed some knowledge of acting to complete beginners. She was professional and always uplifting to the children and respected them in a professional and caring manner as if they were her own. She not only taught them the basics fundamentals of acting but she showed them the professionalism and seriousness of the business surrounding a acting career. The ages of the children ranged from 4-17. As this was a after school program she would always be ready with a lesson plan and would not mind helping after hours if needed. I have learned that to be a great instructor you need to first have a great heart and a seriousness to the profession, and Mrs. Pfau is the total package as she is a great instructor and a great mentor and even after the program finished she was still willing to work with the children on a personal basis to really help these children accomplish their goals in the acting profession. I would be more than happy to recommend Mrs. Pfau in any future projects as I do not recommend people unless I really believe in them.

I can't even put into words how amazing a teacher Sean is. The best way to explain it is to tell about my recent experience in a student film and the results I see from his coaching. It's easy to say you are learning from someone but a completely different thing to be able to put those skills into practice and see the results. So many of the things I accomplished that day on set would not have been possible without the skills Sean taught me. Before “action” on one scene, I caught myself questioning my character's actions and motives and heard Sean's voice in my head reminding me to not judge the character. This bit of remembered wisdom reminded me to focus on empathizing with and being the character rather than judging her. It helped me to become the character rather than just myself portraying the character. There were multiple shots in this film where I had to cry, something I was extremely nervous about and had never been able to do on camera before. But I did as Sean taught me, and the tears came naturally. Without Sean's coaching, my emotions and the tears would not have felt or looked authentic. Sean's acting lessons have helped me immensely, and I am so thankful for everything I have learned from him. I would recommend Sean as a teacher for anyone who is serious about being an actor.

We are so blessed to have found Jeanette. My son started taking lessons from her when he was six and is now 12. She has worked wonders with him, as singing was not his first passion and it did not come easy. In the beginning he was just an actor that would have skipped the musical part if he had a choice. However, bringing him back to Jeanette, over the years, has turned him into a blossoming singer! She has an amazing ability to help one "get it" extremely quickly, patience, knowledge and an amazing musical ability and ear.

Bill is a very nice guy and a really good teacher who knows how to improvise. Second city taught him well. He doesn't yell at the students like some of my previous acting teachers. I've only had 3 improv teachers and Bill is the best teacher i've had.

I have known Mr. Pestle for several years. He is extremely passionate about teaching, theater, acting, and writing—this shows in every aspect of his work, especially his theater productions and English classes. His encouragement, enthusiasm, and humor make him an excellent mentor. I have enjoyed learning from Mr. Pestle through discussion of literature and art! He is honest, and very easy to talk to. Mr. Pestle is awesome. I would absolutely recommend him.

Danielle is amazing!!!... The only thing more amazing than her voice, and her teaching is her passion for muisc, the arts and life in general. Teaching is so many things... Having a degree form an amazing school and being trained by some of the best is clearly a benefit, but being a good listener and compassionate and intuitive. Those things can't always be taught. That's just who she is. Start singing with her NOW! She's awesome!!!....

Rakefet coached my son for both commercial and theatrical roles. His acting skills improved a lot and he's been booking jobs regularly. She was willing to coach him last minute for a part on a pilot despite some personal troubles. Sometimes, I email her suggestions about what my son would like to work on and she incorporates those into the sessions. She's very thoughtful and genuinely cares about my son's progress. She did occasionally cancel a session because of an audition but we did the same to her so we're even. Overall, I can't imagine a better coach for my son. She's been great.

    I did audition prep classes with shakara for 4 months here in London, she was brilliant, really creative eye. Only negative is she had to reschedule a few lessons for auditions of her own, etc... which is fair enough, but it was always quite short notice. Other than that she was brilliant, such a lovely mentor x

    About

    I am an energetic, detail-oriented acting coach who has strong theatrical education experience with elementary, middle school, and high school students. I specialize in coaching young actors, but also work with adults. I received my B.F.A. from NYU and have been teaching theatre and coaching actors for over 13 years. I also have an M.FA. in creative writing. My passion for theatre education and coaching actors reaches far beyond what I can communicate "on paper" but I would take pleasure in the opportunity to speak with you about coaching you (or your child) for whatever your particular needs are. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Best, Sean R.

    About

    I have been trained in acting coaching and directing by some of the leading action, comedic and dramatic filmmakers. I have a ton of personal experience and I just want to help share the wealth of information and help my students unlock and discover their inherent full potential. I have been told by stars that I am uniquely qualified and gifted in this area and they use me and save themselves the high prices of the famous acting coaches. I am here to help. I am here to serve.
