Khylin Rhambo
Helen was my very first acting coach. Going to her class I soon found out just how fun and rewarding acting can be. She would continuously guide me through the steps and it slowly broke me out of that shell that I was captive to. The games that she would come up with added so much confidence to my performance. That’s truly a gift that she gave me that I still use to this day.
Thanks to her I developed a true love for what I do.

Helen’s an amazing acting coach. She encourages her students to really put their 100% into their work while still being true to their unique selves. Her teaching goes beyond just acting, she helps her students to be comfortable with who they are, which stays with you for the rest of your life. She’s truly an awesome coach, and I honestly wouldn’t be where I am today without her.

I have worked with MANY acting coaches in the past but no one is as good as Helen! She doesn’t waste anytime sugar coating what needs fixing. She just jumps right in and helps me make the very most of whatever role I am auditioning for. When my session is over I am always more confident and prepared to kick butt at my audition.

Helen has been such a driving force behind my character, Taylor Hathaway. She is always very honest in a positive manner, and she pushes me to deliver. Helen can explain what a director or the network is asking for in a way that I clearly understand, but allows me to bring my own self to the material.

Helen is THE Acting Coach. I have learned so much in both her classes and one-on-one coaching – by her giving me ideas on how to develop a character and also telling me “why” so I can understand and learn. Helen’s direct style of coaching and feedback has given my the confidence I needed. Helen THANK YOU, we make a great TEAM!

What Parents are Saying….

Hey Helen,
I’ve been meaning to email you. We went to the premiere of “Diamond” the film you helped Danica with, and it rocked!!! Danica was awesome, thank you so much!!! More importantly though, is that a reporter from Buzz TV asked Danica for an interview and I was nervous as all get out. But D rocked it!!! Afterwards I asked her how she got in the mood For the interview, we were late for the premiere due to personal issues so she was in a bad mood. She told me that all she was thinking about was “Helen telling me to be a chatterbox” and she rocked it. The interview has already led to two auditions, one really big one. Thank you so much!
Thanks For everything Helen!!!
– The Metzgers

I can’t express enough how awesome it is to see Andrew so confident after coaching with Helen and nailing the audition! The approach of teaching is like no other, its not just scene study, you see the entire picture.
– John Fox

We simply love you Helen and are beyond appreciative of all you have done for Brooke!
– Laila Renaud

Ashley is on FIRE! – since she’s had the BEST COACH EVER in her life! We can’t sing your praises enough Helen – thank you!!
– Nicole Gebhard

Coaching with Helen is like having all the answers to a test before going into an audition. When you coach with her, you feel like you are seeing the audition through a CD’s mind. She will point out things that you never would think of and yet it will be so obvious once you are made aware of it. She has a gift of awareness and the recognition of all positive and negative aspects of a performance. She has done wonders for my child. I have seen her grow so much in such a short time. When you watch her kids perform in class, you are immediately impressed by the level of talent and professionalism. Each student is better than the next, this is a reflection of her teaching. My daughter started to get theatrical callbacks with Helen’s coaching. I would recommend Helen’s classes to anyone wanting to be an actor.
– Judy Marino

Bella always learns so much from you. I LOVE being able to watch the last fifteen minutes of every class. Not only can I see my daughter perform, but I can hear you coach, redirect and praise her. You are very specific with your redirects and that is extremely valuable. You have high expectations which I love because it helps my daughter be the best she can be. Not many teachers let parents watch at the end of class and you do and that shows an accountability to parents and students. By doing this you show a commitment to making each class purposeful and productive. Because of this I feel like I always know exactly what my child is working on in class and how she is progressing. My daughter loves her classes with you and your genuine support of all your students is evident to all who know you. My daughter has booked theatrically with your coaching and had made it to producers sessions as well. Thank you so much for all you do. We are so fortunate to have found you.
