Overview

Hello,
My name is Yvette. I have been teaching since I was 5 years of age, but professionally, since 2005. I started with a company called Grassroots. Grassroots is for children at risk. I was the lead acting instructor. After that I decided that teaching acting was something that could actually help people no matter what age or background they came from. Since then I've enjoyed teaching hundreds of students ranging from 4 to 99, all from different backgrounds and ethnicity groups. Acting is fun and it can really enhance your self awareness. I have a gift, my gift is to lift people up, no matter how low they may be at the time. Confidence is very important and that's what I focus on with my students. I'd like to welcome you to come and meet me and see if I am the teacher for you. Chemistry is very important and I believe we might just click. If you are passionate about your craft and want to learn more, contact me.
Happy New Year.
Best
Yvette

Experience

Performer/Acting coach

Jan 2005 - Mar 2016
The Shobizconnection

I like to remain humble and say that there is no such thing as the,"best teacher". Finding a good coach/instructor is like finding a person who you can trust and build a solid relationship with. That might sound intense, but you should trust the person who instructors you. Its a relationship that can decide your fate as a performer. I think of it as a semi-marriage. Can you relate to this person? Can you trust him/her to be honest with you without destroying your confidence? Does this coach sincerely want to see you prosper in your life? Is the coach patient or does the coach just tell you what you want to hear? Make sure you answer these question before working with a coach long term. Don't just try to get the cheapest coach, be willing to work hard and pay for the right advice for your career depending on where you are in your career. I'm a loving person and I enjoy watching actors become magical after taking my class. I work with my students and push them very hard but with kindness, especially when I see the passion in their eyes. If I see you really want it, I'll be there to guide you as best possible. Its all up to you!

Yvette is a very dedicated instructor who wants her students to learn, and get booked for acting, I have been with Yvette only a year, and she is my first true acting teacher, I set in a couple of other instructors' classes before and I was frightened.

As an instructor Yvette interviews one by talking to you calmly about what you want to do, and what exposure you have had. She determines your personality and what type parts that may be comfortable for you, and what type parts you should try to familiarize yourself with other than just your comfort zone.

She pulls the best out of her students without frightening them. She works with each individual's needs.

Ms. Yvette is 100% attentive to her students and their different levels of skill and experience. She is quite into "making the student look better" and not so much concerned with showing nay any client "How Good she Is". Let's face it, only the competent teachers need not rub your face in their expertise ... their actions speak louder than their egos. I have studies with only two other "competent" instructors, and I have been a writer, director, and actor on a few projects... were I to build a substantial team of reliable professionals: YVETTE would be on board! You can trust her with her honest feedback and attuned awareness for self improvement techniques. She is delightful and yet quite skilled. FIVE out of FIVE Stars. -30- -30- -30-

My experience With Yvett as an instructor. She pull out the best in me.I SAT and watched her pull out the best in every student she taught. She never gives up on what she wants from her student. She is down to earth and real.I gave her a 4 star because I know that she is still striving for perfection to be the best teacher that she can possibly become.She is a winner, She will take you to the top with her.

Yvette is extremely gifted with working with people. Her intuitive nature is uncanny and allows her to go deep with her students to help connect the missing links. My work greatly increased while working with her and I saw the results both professionally and personally in my life.

I'm a retired Training Specialist. I spent many years in the classroom teaching, facilitating and reviewing and evaluating other trainers/teachers. I can say that I am achieving my objectives in Yvette's class in several ways. First, prior to attending her class, I thought I had no passion or desire to enter the acting field. I would take the class for fun. However, because her passion and drive, it has totally changed my attitude. I have acquired two agents and am actively pursuing the career. I have gained increased confidence by being in her class and I continue to grow. She has strong knowledge of the subject and passes on as much as she can to inspire and motivate her students. She's fun and engaging. I am also noticing many students in Yvette's class, taking chances, risk and booking acting jobs!
