John is an excellent teacher who knows how to assist you in reaching your best personal results. Whether you you’re already an entertainment professional, acting as a hobby, or you just want to see what potential lies within you for a career in the Arts, John can assist you in discovering your strongest path.
Since I was a student in his Oakland Technical High School Drama class, John’s honesty, expertise, and patience has been extremely instrumental in every aspect of my career. The improvisational instruction, memorization techniques, professional dramatic arts techniques, and relevant advice he taught me over the years has led me to write and perform more than a dozen plays. John and I reconnected 27 years later while I worked as a professional journalist with Public Radio, and he became the creative advisor for my touring theatrical production.
By working one-on-one with John, I have taken my performing arts to career heights I never predicted possible with my modest dreams as his 9th grade Drama student. It’s because of John that I have further developed my own signature style in improvisation, drama, literary arts, and the entertainment industry. Now it’s your turn to fly with John and see what heights your talent can take you to soar!"
She has helped me find and shape my voice as a poet/spoken word artist, Tsion the Wordsmith (pronounced Zion).She has taught me simple English lessons on semantics, how to allow myself to breath on stage, even how to be a better public speaker. Just listen to an example of her work or look up anything I have done and you will see her stamp all over it.
For years, I refused to trust anyone to hear my work and help me improve it. She was the first person who helped me be me; she didn't try to change me as a writer/performer. She only sought to help me better myself (she will probably read this review and critique it lol).
If I had to pick one person to trust to help me in the area of the arts, it would be Tokia C.! You will only be better for working with this wonderful woman!!!"
And they're not alone!
