Tamika is such a great instructor. She helped me break out of my comfort zone and worked with me to schedule lessons around my work schedule. I only got to be her student for a short period of time because school started back up, however, I would DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone who is interested in taking lessons with her. She will bring out the actress/actor in you you never knew was there!

A great instructor, that is very thorough. She is friendly, easy to get along with and creates an excellent learning environment. She prepares you well to be able to perform at your highest capacity. I would strongly recommend her to others.

I was really shy before taking Tamika's class, she really taught me how to bring out my inner actor!

Tamika is awesome. It was her first time teaching and we really seemed to connect on all things acting and improv related. Can't wait for my second class with her!
