I coach actors with the intention of my actors getting to work. And they do. I’ll practice with you to discover the way only you create. I will give you the technique to discover your uniqueness and uncanny veracity for your craft and how to maintain emotional equilibrium and to have the ability to practice discipline and a work ethic. It’s also my job, as your coach, to look out for you. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues, scenes, and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to understand how we go about doing this thing called acting. I can work virtually. One thing you must know about me, I am nice. I won't crush your dreams. I will, however, make sure you attain them. I can come to you or you can meet me where I teach. I am in SF and Los Angeles. I successfully work virtually with actors, too. ...

Traci is the best! She is so kind and yet provides such a great workout. I'm a total beginner in dance but she makes me feel comfortable and each week my body is getting more tone and stronger. I really do enjoy her classes and I highly recommend her as an instructor.

Yes, my resume is a bit quirky, not many people go from a career in computer programming to astrology but in essence what I've done is to take things I'm good at and turn them into a career I'm passionate about. My varied background might make me the right teacher for you. I love teaching and l

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.

Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Mia is amazing!!

She is a pleasure to learn from and to spend time with!!

July 11, 2019
She is amazing as a teacher and a singer. I was looking for formal training to advance in my singing and understand what I am doing wrong. And Mia have helped me so much in just 3 classes. As a singer I felt stuck and wanted to advance my skills and I was very doubtful of teachers but I can say with confidence Mia is the perfect teacher for me. She makes it so comfortable for me to explore my voice and range. So far everything she has taught me has helped me realize my mistakes that were holding me back from singing at my best. She is also very accommodating in terms of class schedule. I always look forward to my class with her.

"Step it up, NYFA! Haha I'm just kidding. But seriously... Like a couple of Tyler's students, I was a class-mate of his at the New York Film Academy. Well, I was a "program-mate," rather. He was a few levels ahead of me. But when I requested training with him and wanted to see his educational background, he whipped out this scroll-long-seeming beauty of a resume and WOW. He sure knows how to use his time wisely. This guy is a GENIUS! And, as I found out, was the youngest kid at the #1 film academy in the world... Who was also offered a scholarship, work/study, directing job, award-winners' mentorship, other promotional opportunities, and yada-yada. Anyway, he is a good friend of mine and has done a lot to improve my craft. Thanks so much, man. Keep it up!"

We wanted something different and upbeat, and Miss G choreographed the perfect dance for us! She is a wonderful teacher, she's very patient (we never took dance lessons before and she walked us through every step!), and we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend her! We have no regrets getting lessons from Miss G. She made it so fun!"

He celebrated my successes and reassured me when I wasn't getting it right away, without me feeling babied. I am feeling confident that after a few lessons I will be ready for the first dance at my wedding! Seriously, super helpful."

"Professor Garcon is a scholar at Acting, When I saw him I quickly recognised him from the Show Time Original tv show "Magic City" I had so many questions and because Professor Garcon experienced it all for the past 5 years and never needed an agent It gave me confedence in my self to see it through by myself. I hope to take further classes in the future unfortunately he lives in Virginia and I live in Florida."
