Tiffini L. Escondido, CA

I've been teaching acting for more than 20 years and my students (and I) have gone on to work in theater, film, TV, commercials, modeling, voice overs, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll you'll learn acting basics and start creating and acting as different characters. I have a large library of acting materials as well as acting literature. Acting techniques may include: The Meisner technique, method acting, classical language interpretation, improv, and acting for the stage, and more! I love working with students of all experience levels to learn how to "professionally pretend."

As a performer I have worked as a professional singer, actor, musician, and dancer. I have always had a passion for teaching, directing, and composing.

I couldn't have asked for a better instructor because I was primarily looking for patience. I have a long time fear of singing and singing in front of people, Tiffini is very patient and easy to work with.

I would like to start off with by saying that Tiffini is an amazing teacher. I have been taking lessons with her for the last year and a half through Skype and each lesson in that time with her has been an enjoyable experience. I started taking speaking voice lessons with her then switched to singing lessons. She was able to help me immensely on both my speaking voice and singing; getting rid of my mumbling for former and helping me to regain confidence in the latter. With both types of lessons she was knowledgeable, encouraging, kind, patient, and a fun teacher to have. I could go on for at least a few pages about Tiffini, but bottom line is that she is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wanted to start taking lessons through

Tiffini is an awesome teacher! We originally met when I performed in a series of youth theater productions that she directed and I began taking voice lessons from her soon after. Tiffini truly cares about her students. She has greatly enhanced my confidence auditioning by helping me select appropriate songs, working patiently on difficult sections of the piece, and providing clear acting support. She also teaches online and is very accessible via email and Skype. She has been an invaluable resource and I'm very grateful to have worked with her.

Joe P. Escondido, CA

My instruction in acting encompasses all levels from beginning to advanced using a strong base in Stanislavski while blending it with many other theories in order to take students to the deepest levels of characterization and realization – finding the truth in the moment and in the story. The goal of this eclectic approach is to be able to extract something useful from each theory, something that works best for the individual actor thus aiding them in creating their own essential actor’s tool box - a box which holds the keys and secrets to their soul’s inner workings and the mechanisms used to retrieve them.

Long standing memeber: Screen Actor's Guild and Actors Equity Association

About Joe

Will teach age 12 and up.

athena R. Temecula, CA

Students will begin with basic tongue twisters and theatre games to begin to open the mind and feel the creative energy. Things such as charades will be used to practice expressing ones self through motion. Next will be to work on short monologues and finally short scenes. I believe in catering to my student's needs and engaging them in teaching. I want them to learn in a way that is conducive to them.

About athena

Hello! I'm a recent graduate with a degree in film production. I love teaching film, acting, and writing to people. There is something very fulfilling in teaching people to embrace their creative sides. My approach is to teach students the basics and then experiment from there. Each person learns differently, so I make sure to cater to those differences. I also have experience in math and literature. Both have always been strong parts of my life and I continue to pass my knowledge on to those around me.
