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

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.

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.

Jessica Payne is an extraordinary talented teacher and coach.Specially she helped me with my acting and singing.I was a little bit nervous going into the lesson, but she did a great job of making me feel relaxed and setting up a safe and friendly atmosphere.She knew what she walking about.We spent time working on technical aspects of singing and acting(breath support, resonance, intention given, given circumstances,etc.). Then we talked a little bit about the artistic aspects of performance.Near the end we chatted about wardrobe choices and common mistakes that people make in auditions and on set.It was an extraordinary helpful lesson and now I use what I learned all the time. I highly recommend Jess to other performers, and I will use her again. Thanks for listening!!

    Michelle Delgado changed my daughter’s 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 Michelle’s 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 didn’t think she could pull it off. With Michelle’s 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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

    Working with Jonathan is truly amazing. He is very easy to talk with, funny, and he's a creative guy. Taking voice lessons and creating music with him is SO FUN. Jonathan has given me great feedback, on my voice and songwriting. I'm looking forward to producing songs with him in near future. I also am looking forward to working with him on other projects in the future. Jonathan has also helped me decide, where I want to go within the entertainment industry. I truly feel like I have grown a lot working with Jonathan. Thank you Jonathan for your continuous support towards my aspirations. P.S. I hope to see you working with Jonathan soon! David Bache
