My name is Kyla Sylvers and I am currently a working actress and substitute teacher. I am on a webseries that just won a pilot competition, I just wrapped a play and start rehearsals for another one in June, and I have done a number of other live shows, short films, and webseries. I have taught theater, I substitute teach, currently, and I have babysat and tutored. I am also an alumni of the University of Southern California (BA) - one of the top universities in the US with one of the best theater (and film) schools! I love teaching, especially the arts, and I love to help someone understand something better and to feel more confidently about a subject or skill. I am excited to meet you all and get started!

All The Best,

· Acting · In home Kyla really knows what she's doing. I regularly go to her for performance help and never fails to provide constructive criticism and great suggestions for character development and script analysis. She also superb at teaching audition techniques! You will definitely feel more comfortable on the stage or in an audition room when you have Kyla as a teacher!
