Bret Green (“The Inspectors” – 2019 Daytime Emmy Nomination)

Robin was the first acting coach I had when I got to LA and I still find myself going back to her teachings when I approach an audition. She has a very welcoming personality and made me feel safe to take chances and try new things. From the moment I met her, I felt like she was a long lost friend or relative I hadn’t seen in a while. She has one of those beautiful souls that you can’t help but take valuable lessons from! (IMDB page)

Helena-Alexis Seymour (“Chronicles Of Jessica Wu”)

Studying with Robin has been such a blessing. Her approach to each character was literally the missing link for me to fully understand how to truly create and become confident living the life of each individual human. She empowered me in ways no other acting teacher has done before. I am so grateful. (IMDB page)

Anna Khaja (“Madame Secretary,” “Silicon Valley,” “The Good Place”)

Robin has a deep understanding of actors: she makes me feel safe and free while holding me to the highest gold standard. Thanks to Robin, my auditions are more connected and authentic.

Most importantly, she has given me the priceless gift of knowing how to own a role completely, no matter the time constraint – an invaluable resource for an auditioning actor. I am so grateful to you, Robin!  (IMDB page)

I’ve been getting much more pleasure and satisfaction out of my work since we met. You’ve shown me that this incredible journey I’m on is a fun and exciting exploration rather than a threat. So, thank you!”

Pisay Pao (“Z Nation,” “NCIS: Los Angeles”)

I coached with her for my callback and before I even had a chance to share the notes that I’d gotten from the Casting Director, Robin already knew what I needed to bring to the role. We got to the physical core of my character and I left feeling really empowered and clear about my choices.

It was such a great experience I asked Robin to coach me again for a “third” audition tape. No one had asked me for another tape, but I was going out of the country and I wanted to be prepared. I explained this to Robin and she was super supportive and committed to helping me get my best work – even if we didn’t know if anyone would be watching.

Luckily, someone did and I booked the job. Our role prep coaching sessions took it all even deeper, so I could bring a complex character to every shoot.”  (IMDB page)

So of course I went back to her for role prep coaching, and our session prepared me to walk on the pilot set with a fully developed character ready to play.”  (IMDB page)

It really allowed me to live through the audition instead of rush or ramble through it. The entire experience was very satisfying. Thank you.”  (IMDB page)

Kate Amundsen (“Stitchers,” “Shameless”)

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 8.37.02 PM“Robin is such a delight to work with! She offered me a FUN, safe, creative and collaborative workspace to develop a role I booked. She had clearly spent a lot of time with the script beforehand and was therefore very prepared to offer invaluable insight for the life I would be living. By the time we finished our session, I left with a solid sense of my character and felt much more prepared for the subsequent shoot days. I highly recommend working with Robin. She’s the best!” (IMDB page)

Feraz Ozel (“Hollywood Dirt”)

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 8.49.00 PM“Robin is by far better than every acting coach/teacher I’ve ever had. She has a unique ability to understand what you are not grasping and gets you to understand how to make the changes within you and your approach to truly “live the life” of the character. She is completely devoid of b.s. and a real person with a passion for teaching. The classes don’t have any of the touchy-feely, group therapy bullshit that waste your time and money. You come here to learn a technique, get on camera, see what’s not working, and make it work…. and maybe flirt with the cute girls all around you. It’s a very fun and safe environment!”

I find myself using the tips and techniques she taught me again and again. She is kind and intelligent and communicates her ideas clearly. I will definitely coach with her again!!”  (IMDB page)

Clotile Kepashvili (“The Color Purple”)

You might think playing the lead on Broadway makes it easy to transition to TV/film, but it wasn’t easy for me to be in front of the camera; I loved that she took me where I was at, helped me grow and allowed me to be who I truly am. So rewarding, and so worth it.”

Libby Mintz (“Day Out Of Days”)

Your instincts about the script were right on and I felt free to play. Director Zoe Cassavetes loved what I was doing and led me even further into a silly carefree territory, which was so fun. Thanks for helping me get out of my head and enjoy it!”

You reminded me why I love to act. I am so looking forward to the ongoing class and more private coaching. Thank you for telling me it is okay to be vulnerable and that I am enough – you just don’t hear that very often in this town.”

Emily Torres (“Fam”)

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 8.41.11 PM“I booked a pilot! And I believe that your classes are the reason I booked it.

The entire audition was “cold reads only.” All I had was the breakdown of the character and then I was given my scene 5 minutes before I auditioned. I went in with a confidence, excitement and the skills I learned working with you. After I read for the part of Rita, the director asked me to read for another part and again I only had about five minutes. I went in and read again, she gave me adjustments and we read again and I made the adjustments.

When I booked the job, I actually had the guts to ask what made me stand out. She said that I was excited to just jump in, that I wasn’t scared of the cold read and it didn’t paralyze me. Instead, she said I got more connected and made every adjustment without getting nervous.

So I wanted to thank you! Thank you Miss Robin! Working with you has really made me confident and even more excited about my craft! When I’m done filming you will see me again in class.”

Jessica Sirls (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal”)

She gives you a set of tools to digs deep into the emotional life of a character. Her classroom allows you to grow as a person and an actor.  This translates to a better experience in the audition room and a richer life.

I recently had an important meeting/audition with a top theatrical agency I wanted to impress.  My coaching session with Robin prepared me for that and led to me signing with the agency.  Woo hoo!  As I continue to grow and practice my craft, I will continue to go back to Robin.”
