Hired her for acting lessons, great to work with and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend, looking forward to our future lessons!
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.
Bonnie is fantastic! Really understands the male voice. Looking forward to continuing to work with her.
David Rountree from LA Acting Studios is the best teacher in Los Angeles-- hands down! I am amazed of his knowledge and the experience he shares from his time so far in the Industry. I love learning from him! He is definitely not to be missed if you're serious about Acting or would just like to raise your confidence level. He has a way of connecting to you that is very heartfelt and sincere.
Allie once said to me that she is at her best when "engaging in the collaborative process." This is only one example of Allie's striking self awareness and excitement in engaging with others in creativity. I have had the pleasure of working with Allie for the last 4 years and during this time she is consistently someone I turn to for acting coaching. Allie has a shrewd eye, and a no bull shit attitude, that makes her someone I trust as an outside eye. This coupled with the fact that Allie truly cares about the people she works with in a deep, palpable way makes her a truly unique coach. Because Allie is thoughtful about the quality of work she facilitates, as well as the well being of those around her, I consistently leave sessions with her feeling confident in my work. I cannot recommend Allie highly enough, anyone would be lucky to work with her.
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!!!....
Michelle Delgado changed my daughters life! My daughter Samantha was terrified of speaking in public. She had a fear of being recognized and she lacked confidence. Samantha played a warrior in of one of Michelles plays. She had to be a strong leader, a brave leader with a voice that all could hear. The first few times she wanted to quit, she didnt think she could pull it off. With Michelles guidance and support my daughter had a successful performance! She went from not having a voice to becoming a leader! The best thing of all is that it didnt stop with her performance. This past school year she decided to run for class president. In the beginning she went back to her old habits and didnt know if she could speak publicly in front of so many students! The next day she ran up to me and said, Mom, I can do this! I remember everything that Michelle taught me. She taught me how to speak up and use my voice. She taught me how to be strong and brave. I can do this! Well guess what? She is now class President! I know that this would not have been possible without Michelle's support. Sarah Marshall
Andrea Morgan is a teacher that inspires her students creativity and cultivates a passion for the world of theater. Andrea is sensitive to students various learning styles, and is able to teach and direct in a very interpersonal way, in order to draw out each students strengths and further their creative growth. She is structured, respectful, understanding, comical, and committed to serving her students. Andrea's passion for the art of theater creates a learning environment that encourages her students to explore their own ideas and apply to them not only in the classroom, but out in the entertainment industry. I am a former student of Andrea's and can honestly say that it is because of her teachings and encouragement that I continued to pursue acting. I also worked as the theater secretary for Andrea Morgan's theater company, Chrysalis Stage. It was a great learning experience to watch her multi task as an actor, director, dialect coach, designer, and costumer. I Learned the art of theater making from Andrea, and have a much a deeper respect for all areas of theater because of her.
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.
I pick an individual approach for every student in order to excell them in the most effective way

I teach all levels of acting, working with voice, breathing and acting techniques. I do a scene study for theaters, as well as movies and television. Private, one-on-one coaching is also available.
My ability to adapt to each student is the cornerstone of my practice. I treat each lesson as a new experience, and each student as an individual. I design warm ups and pick material that will help the individual to grow. I teach in a warm and caring way, that pays attention to the whole person.
There are many wonderful teachers out there. I think the biggest difference between what I offer and what others offer is that my focus is on the Actor becoming a better Actor. Rather than simply doing scene work I prefer to focus on the Actor's Instrument, tuning it to be more focused, in touch and sensitive.
I am a lifetime member of the prestigious Actors Studio. I have coached actors of all levels for twenty years. I am also a working pro. I have been in over 50 feature films. Both my brother and uncle are movie directors so the business is really in my family. I have a lot of showbusiness know how I coach monologues, auditions, scenes and and general dialogue coaching.. I have taught at The National Theatre of the Deaf, The Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre in NYC, privately over 25 students I will get you the callback! I have been trained by the best. The Neighborhood Playhouse Grad, HB Studios in New York, Sally Kirkland, Geraldine Page, Martin Landau , Mark Rydell, Sandy Dennis and many others have all called me a big talent! Check me out on IMDB.
I truly want the kids I work with to feel good about themselves and their possible performance. Acting gives one confidence and a great work ethic. I'm still young and connect with kids on both a friendly and maternal level.
