Learn from basic to advance modeling as part of being self confident in yourselves. I have been a professional model since my 16 years. My experience of almost 20 years in the industry makes me a solid teacher in the subject. I alsoused to run my Modeling Academy the past 2 years in Puerto Rico called MetaMorphosis by Ilka Tamar. Since I move to Florida I want to continue my legacy of using modeling as a tool to improve self esteem and create more confidence on girls, teens and woman along the way.

About Ilka C.

Hi there!
I’m Ilka Tamar, and I cannot wait to meet you. I have been a Modeling Instructor since 1996 after my graduation from Fontecha Academy (Puerto Rico) in 1995. While attending Fontecha, I earned degrees in Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Modelling between the years of 1995 to 1996. Some of my personal accomplishments, after being in the industry for 20 years, have been: Professional Modeling, Acting (TV and Film), Editorials (Washington D.C, Texas, New York), and owned my own Modeling Academy named MetaMorphosis by Ilka Tamar.

As your instructor, I would help you train for beauty pageants, runways, editorials, and more. Also, I would love to help you with self- confidence and self- esteem, personal goals and achievements. Starting at 5 years of age, I teach everyone with special needs and Seniors welcomed too!

Success and confidence have no age limits; this is my philosophy. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Miss.Ilka practically changed my life. Modeling was always my dream. She thought me every single thing on modeling from how to walk, confidence, photo-movement, makeup, what looks best on my body today type and etc. I wouldn’t have been able to get all of my modeling jobs that i have gotten today if Miss. Ilka didn’t teach me! I don’t know how many times i can thank her for letting my dreams come true. 10/10 Recommend her as a teacher to ANYONE she has over 20 years of modeling experience. I don’t think i would find anyone as perfect as her for the job!!!
