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.

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.

Working with Mary is always a positive experience for me. I've been acting for many years but I learned so much from Mary about how to develop my character and how to make the audience see and feel what I'm trying to say, not only with my words, but with my actions. This has helped me allot in several roles I've had since working with her. Thanks Mary!! You've made me a better and more confident actor!

Kandice has changed my work completely! Coming straight out of "acting school", I ended up with a lot of "stagey" bad habits that were very ingrained. Kandice not only spotted them almost immediately, she has an awesome way of being able to work with you on something without making you feel dumb or embarrassed. She took my work from "good enough for school" to booking actual jobs in the real world for film/tv. After coaching with her I feel more confident than ever and am actually excited to audition now, where previously I was kind of a nervous wreck. She's taught me how to be confident in the work I'm doing and how to have fun acting again. Highest possible recommendation to anyone looking for a legit, no fluff, awesome acting coach.

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.

    David is one of those rare and gifted individuals who can get to the heart of the matter in any scene, monologue or exercise with a student and truly help them understand what they are doing. His knowledge of the craft, his eye for behavior, his ability to keep his students at ease and focused - these are all traits of what an acting teacher should be. He can teach both the beginner as well as the veteran actor, bringing layers of script and character analysis to the forefront and keeping an actor honest. I have worked with him in a myriad of capacities: as an actor, as a student, as a fellow teacher, and as a fellow student. With over 20 years in this industry I can honestly say there is no one I would recommend more highly than David Robinette. - Diánna Martin

      When I arrived NYC, I was looking for a vocal coach who would help me overcome some vocal challenges that I was facing, especially in my passagio. I am a high tenor, so high notes have never been a challenge, but surprisingly, the challenge was being my middle upper range, right where the change to head voice happens. Previous vocal lessons did not help me to solve this problem. Sean, with patience, care, deep knowledge and an incredible ear, helped me deconstruct my vocal technique so I would understand my challenges and the reasons underlying my vocal challenges. He truly showed that he understood what I was going through! He also helped me spot and combat bad vocal habits I had acquired through the years. While singing well and keeping your voice healthy is a job that never stops, he has provided me with the tools to move forward as a singer and keep the good path. I am even thinking of going back to the studio and put out new music soon! Every time I walk out of a lesson with Sean I feel like I am singing better than ever, and I cannot wait to work with him again in the future. I am sure that If you do work with him, you will feel the same way. Thank You Sean!!

      Working with Fabiana Medici was an experience I will always cherish. We taught an acting class together and I saw first hand how she is able to engage actors with her creativity, warmth and knowledge. She is wonderful working with children. She is kind, supportive and extremely professional. Her extensive experience, understanding of acting and passion for the craft (and life) leave a lasting impression on anyone fortunate enough to study with her.

      Josh lessons improved my acting tremendously. His ability to perceive the depth of a character and guide the actor in experimenting with different choices is stunning. It's way easy to fall into the trap of comfortable choices that fit the character, but soon become stale and mechanical. Josh always pushes you to act "outside the box". His lessons are a must for any actor at any level.

      Anthony has made amazing changes with my voice. Not only has he helped to tune my voice to produce the desired sound and expand its versatility, his instruction has also improved the stamina of my voice, and I can perform at my best with less effort. Even after just a few lessons, Anthony and I had accomplished tasks which seemed less comprehensible under previous training. I strongly recommend this instructor for singers of all ages and disciplines.

      Working with Monique was the best. She's extremely encouraging, while not shying away from giving constructive feedback to help me grow as a voice actor. She is very thorough, not only with teaching acting skills, but also with going over how the business works. This included what do to during auditions, how video resumes should look, creating a vision for the future, and owning your talent! I've put off becoming a voice actor for years, not even getting into a class. But Monique taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to, and if I believe that I can make a career out of voice acting, then it'll happen. 10 out of 10, would recommend.

      Noel is an amazing coach with tons of TV and film credits and experience. He helped me with audition technique, which has helped me get more auditions and callbacks, and book jobs. Noel helped me with getting my Manager, Agent, and walked me through getting representation that was right for me. He also helped me know what types of roles I should play as well as how to market myself. He also took my career to the next level by teaching me to film, direct, light, do sound, and edit my own footage. My acting and confidence really grew once I started working with noel. He is an amazing dedicated coach, and Career Adviser who is very reasonable in what he charges. He has truly become a friend. I feel very blessed to be mentored by Noel. Jessica
