First of all, let me just say, I love people. What really makes me happy outside of pursuing my dreams as a performer is watching other performers, make their dreams come true. I have a gift for helping others come out of their shells and be the unique individuals that they are met to be.
I specialize in building confidence in order to bring out the best of each student. I base each workshop on the student and his/her level and goals.

I tailor each class according to the strength or weaknesses of the student. I also focus on assisting students who seriously decide to pursue the industry professionally. I don't promise to make you a star but I do coach you to be prepared to become one if that is your goal.

About Yvette R.

I really love watching performers grow. Some students refer to me as a life coach, because after working with me, they see drastic changes in their personal and professional lives. I am very PATIENT.

I believe that all things are possible if you are willing to work hard and not take it all too seriously. I believe in BALANCE. If you put your best foot forward and not compare yourself to others the sky is simply the LIMIT.

I still pursue acting and singing daily. I go out on auditions regularly and I keep up with the latest happenings in the industry. I majored in theater at WSU and I've performed in over 29 shows and I also teach At-Risk-Youth behavioral modification skills through acting.

I know dreams can true, it's all up to YOU. If you really want to see your dreams come true in this life, I will be more than willing to assist you on this journey.
:) Yvette.

I've taken classes with lots of teachers in the LA area throughout the years, and Yvette is one of the best. She has the gift of reading you as an artist and challenging you completely. I feel stronger as an actor after working with her. She is warm yet direct in a way that makes you comfortable, very important in building any artistry. I highly recommend Yvette!

It is a pleasure for me to share my story regarding my acting experience with Yvette. I met her about four years ago, highly recommended by a friend. Of course, I had no acting experience; just knew that I wanted to pursue this at some point. Considering, my being a senior, I needed lots of help with patience. That I had with Yvette.

She immediately, made me feel very comfortable. She tried me with some roles, calmed my fears, and coached me right into my comfort zone. However, she kept me up-to-date and realizing that I could reach beyond just the comfortable area if I wished. I booked my first two auditions. I started on stage, now I am in her home, and online. She is a great teacher, acting and inspirational coach, with a passion and love to help the student to reach your goal. She has become an endearing friend like a daughter to me.

Wherever you are in your acting world, or just beginning, have faith, and Yvette can help YOU, also!

Yvette is a wonderful instructor who takes time to work with your individual needs to set you up for success. She is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. I’ve worked with her before and will continue in the future.

Yvette has been very helpful from the beginning! I’m an older teen who was looking into acting and wanted to get good classes affordably. After contacting her we started right away and I’ve learned more than I even knew existed! Not only is she good at what she does, but she won’t waste time with unnecessary activities. She’s also amazing because she is still in this business and knows what it takes to get around! I highly recommend her for anyone looking into acting classes! Both television and theater.

The Shobizconnection

In 2005, I was introduced to a well-known organization that works with At-Risk-Youth. I've always wanted to work with this population due to my own past as a creative child with nowhere to be creative. After working with these talented children, I decided to form my own non-profit organization and teach behavior-modification through acting as a way to give back to the community. That's when I founded, SILENCE THE TEARS. We go out and encourage young people to believe in their dreams and to let no one or anything stop them from being their very best, no matter what career path they decide to take. This is all done through acting classes and building confidence in students who rarely have a chance to excel in life.
