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.

Bonnie is incredibly easy to talk to, and explains the technical aspect of singing and sounds in an easy way for me to understand. I’m excited to have her as a coach

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.

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.

My daughter needed an acting coach to help her prepare for an audition to a performing arts high school. My daughter loved working with Carolyn and her coaching made all the difference. My daughter was accepted to the performing arts school and Carolyn's coaching, guidance, and advice not only taught my daughter acting skills but helped her feel confident about her acting abilities.

I have been in an acting conservatory for 2 years and that gave me an ok starting point regarding how I approach characters and breakdown scenes. The very first session I had with Dominic, he gave me that golden piece of information that I was looking for. Now, that technique he taught me is what I use everytime I approach a character or breakdown scenes, and I must say I have never been more grounded or in the moment with my acting. He knows his shit and has worked with the biggest actors and directors in Hollywood. He is the best acting teacher I have.

Actors Youth Academy is a great school to improve or begin to learn Spanish and acting skills (or a combination of the two). The teachers are passionate and insightful, experienced in their fields, and able to provide constructive and insightful feedback. This is a great place to learn, amongst the talented students and the inspiring instructors, and I highly recommend giving them a call right now!!

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.

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.
