John taught my little girl acting. He was patient and so kind. Exactly the kind of teacher she needed because she is a sensitive little girl. He always spoke to her calmly, with a smile and that gave her the confidence she needed.

For the time i have known John, he has always impressed me to be a conscientious, passionate person who knows the ins and outs of the entertainment industry.
I believe his commitment and knowledge will help anyone wanting to study the art and craft of acting in pursuit of a film or tv career.
Continued success John.
