My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!

I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!

About Artem
Hello dear students! My name is Artem and I have been playing violin since I was 4 years old and am a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through and discover new way
s to teach Russian and English to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

About Pamela
Currently accepting only high school and college students. I have a Masters in French from Middlebury College, renown for its language schools, as well as 15 years of classroom experience at the middle and high school levels. During my tenure as a classroom teacher I worked with individual students on a regular basis and for the last five years, I have been tutoring exclusively.

There are many fun & interesting aspects of French and it is a real pleasure for me to see my students progress. I try as quickly as possible to identify the problem areas, help my students overcome them and also suggest helpful study skills. The ultimate goal is that they become confident learners who see and are pleased with their own progress. I am very patient.

While studying for my Masters I lived in Paris. Since then, various summer courses and teac
her workhops have led me to Auvergne, Normandy, Lorraine, and Montreal where I also lived with local families.

I hope to meet you soon!

Words can’t describe the excellent voice over coaching that I have received from Hunter. During every consultation, I’ve learned through her realistic approach how to unblock the mental barriers of discovering my true authentic voice. When I met Hunter, I had lots of doubts and fears of becoming a professional Voice Over talent. Now I am booking and receiving amazing responses from clients. Thank you Hunter!
