"TAMMY IS MUCH LIKE A YODA TO ME. WHILE LIVING IN VANCOUVER AND STILL NOW IN LOS ANGELES I'VE COME TO HER CONSISTENTLY WHEN I FEEL I NEED A HIGHLY TRUSTED SECOND OPINION ON A CHARACTER. HER EXPERIENCE FROM HER MANY PROLIFIC YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY IS SO VALUABLE TO SOMEONE WHO IS SOAKING UP EVERY BITOF WISDOM HE CAN. SHE PUSHES ME HARD AND DOESN'T LET ME OFF THE HOOK UNTILWE HAVE FOUND A CHARACTER WORTH PUTTING UP FOR CASTING. BE IT FOR A TAPED AUDITION OR COACHING, TAMMY HELPS ME FIND MY STRENGTHS AND EXPLOIT THEM FULLY WHILE UNAFRAID TO POINT OUT AND HELP ME IMPROVE MY WEAKNESSES - WHICH IS RARE! TO WORK WITH SOMEONE THAT IS AS HUNGRY AND PASSIONATE AS YOU ARE IS INFECTIOUS AND ALWAYS RAISES THE BAR. HER APPROACH TO THE CRAFT IS STRAIGHT FORWARD AND FEARLESS. I ENDORSE HER FULLY AND URGE YOU TO WORK WITH HER!"

"Tammy has been and continues to be my compass to success. She has empowered me and developed my acting muscle in a way that I never expected. Through her coaching, I am continuing to hone my craft. I’ve learned the keys to booking a part: from breaking down a scene, to the importance of bringing subtle nuances to a character. I am also learning about the business element of this industry; which I feel, are lessons exclusively provided by Tammy. I consider Tammy to be my teacher and mentor, and would attribute my success to her guidance."

"Tammy channels her strength onto her students. Her tireless efforts to excel inspires us to want to exceed our own limits. She makes me want to constantly improve and shape my craft and has helped me realize how much in love I am with acting. Tammy is tough but her heart is full of love and good intentions for all her students. I would not be the actor I am today without her loving correction and guidance. She is our momma bear."
- Jennifer Garcia
** can be seen on the sketch comedy series "SUNNYSIDE"
"Tammy really opened my eyes to using the surroundings within a scene. She taught me that the most subtle things that you normally wouldn't think of can make the difference between a booking and "sorry you're not right for the part". Tammy's experience both in the room and on set is not only utilized through her coaching but has proven to be some of my strongest tools in the audition room."

Studying with Tammy has been a tremendous benefit for me. Her classes are geared to achieve the actor’s long and short-term goals. She provides a safe environment allowing me to experiment, have fun and while being tough as nails on me – she is nurturing at the same time. Tammy is able to tell me how my auditions come across: what works, what doesn’t – and most importantly, how to fix it and make it better. Because of her guidance, my auditions have improved remarkably and I am not only receiving positive feedback from casting – I’ve booked because of her help too. I feel blessed to have her in my life and I’m happy to call Tammy my teacher, mentor, friend and a true inspiration.

"Tammy has a sharp eye for business and art. Not too many people have that ability. She has helped me, continues to help me with anything that I ask of her. She wants me to succeed and will do anything in her power to do so. There are very few coaches, let alone fellow actors, who put as much work into your auditions as they do their own. Because of Tammy, I signed with an amazing Toronto agent and just booked an animated feature!!"
- Trisha Blair
"What are you going to do for your acting career today?’ This is not a rhetorical question in Tammy’s class. If your answer is “nothing”, then you are a lazy actor and prepare to have your ass kicked. Tammy Gillis is in the business of acting. There is no room for false modesty, or inflated egos. Just do the work, everyday. Tammy teaches actors how to work. She is a successful working actress. If you want the same, take her class. It’s that simple. Tammy’s workshop is underpriced, but don’t tell her I said that."
