Tori is so easy to work and I look forward to my lesson with her every week. I love working with Tori as she helps me understand each role which makes it easier for me to ace my part in every audition. She calms me when I get nervous and always makes time for me if I need her to prep me for a self tape.

We love working with Tori. She really opens up the scene and helps you see more details which help a lot with creating a very deep and complex scene and understanding the characters.

As a full-time student and someone who auditions full time outside of school, Tori is the best audition coach I have found to date. No matter how large or small the role, Tori is very thorough not only with her script analysis but with her notes. She works with students on an individual level to help them bring themselves to the role, not the other way around. And I have had great success working with Tori and I will continue to work with her for as long as I can!

Tori is such a fun teacher to work with! She teaches all kinds of acting techniques, from discovering who your character is, finding the setting in a scene, knowing your character’s want, comparing and contrasting your character to yourself, and so much more. I feel so confident approaching a scene with the techniques she has taught me! I have learned an insane amount from her in just a few short months. I always look forward to my lessons with this amazingly kind teacher that is Tori!

Tori is an AMAZING acting coach and teacher! She is very patient and engaging. Tori helped Jeremy prepare for his FPAC audition and I’m excited to say that he was just accepted into the program! Tori taught Jeremy how to develop the character to make his performance more authentic. She also always made herself available to fine tune his performance which was extremely helpful but what really stood out to me was how unbelievably supportive Tori was! She was able to get the best performance out of Jeremy!
Without question, if you want to improve as an actor, work with Tori!!!!
