Natalie is a superb teacher! We are thrilled to have found such a compassionate, dedicated, competent teacher. She provides my daughter with excellent lessons of consistency, practice, review of previous lessons and introduction to new material. My daughter is so excited for her lessons because Natalie is so positive and enriching in her teaching style. Natalie exudes happiness, knowledge in the subject matter, and an overall engaging personality. My daughter has made leaps and bounds since starting lessons several months ago. We highly recommend Natalie as a singing teacher!!!

About Eileen

ACTING: I'm a lifetime member of The Actors Studio with a B.A from UCLA and an MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio Drama School in NYC. My teaching style is a hybrid which embodies my favorite techniques I've learned throughout my studies & career. I have also worked professionally as a casting director (commercial & film), so I can offer a unique perspective from the other side of the lens. *** Lesson Details *** I tailor each lesson to your individual goals and needs. Some students simply want an introduction to acting and want a supportive and private environment where they can learn and take risks, others want to break into commercials, and yet others are already working on professional careers and want to improve their audition technique to get more callbacks and ...

Eileen is a talented teacher who is inspiring.

Eileen is an exceptional acting teacher. She is warm, caring, and patient. She has a great attitude that inspires me to work my hardest to reach my goals. I originally selected Eileen because of her strong academic background in theater but once I worked with her, I was struck by her energy and enthusiasm making her a perfect mentor to learn from.

Eileen is terrific!

I call on Eileen whenever I need a coach for upcoming auditions. I love working in her Santa Monica home studio - it's clean, bright, and inviting. I love the way we really break down the scenes together, and I find it really helpful that she puts me on tape to see what works and what doesn't work in an audition situation.

About the class:

Pilates Fitness Fusion is a 60 minute body conditioning class that includes elements of Pilates, Yoga and other strengthening and stretching techniques.

About Charly

I'm a professional dancer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body for the purpose of injury prevention. I'm a certified Pilates instructor and I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client.

Real results

I've worked out with many different trainers and Lisa is by far the best!! I went from a size 14 to a size 6 in 6 months! I never felt more motivated and excited to workout. Lisa combines kettlebells with Pilates and it is an amazing workout. Lisa's knowledge about the body and her craft make her an excellent teacher. I continue to train with her at City Athletic Club 4 days per week and we do something different every time. I will continue to train with Lisa because my results are real and lasting. I also use her Kettlebell Bombshell DVDs when I'm traveling or her YouTube workouts to stay on track.

Lisa's the best!

Lisa teaches me at my home 5 days per week at 6 am. She is always professional and punctual. Her mood is always good and she is very motivating! Lisa has transformed my body and I enjoy her creativity so that I never get bored. Kettlebells and Pilates are so much fun but with Lisa as my trainer, I am always achieving results! I highly recommend her and her DVDs, Kettlebell Bombshell!

Teach what YOU want to learn. Focus on your weakness and improve it. Outline your strengths and highlight them. To teach at my home studio be alert I have a cat and a dog - so allergies are considered. Also must be able to walk up stairs to my apt. Very nice area and free curbside parking.

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

Teaching has given her the ability to connect with students to reach their personal goals and rid their bodies of chronic conditions and weaknesses. She has worked with students of all ages, athletes, dancers and special needs.
