Raquel Gardner is absolutely amazing. I met her in the beginning of my career. She has helped to mold me into a stronger actor. I am thankful for her honesty, her dedication, and her mentorship. Thank you forever Raquel for helping me prepare for the audition for P-Valley and your constant support and guidance while filming my first series. Thank you for believing in me more than I believed in myself. I highly recommend Raquel Gardner to any actor.

“My goal coaching session with Raquel was invaluable, I just booked and shot an Etsy commercial Monday! I was on hold for Gateway Health…Thank you for helping me get my online profiles in order and show me how to properly present my brand (which is myself) to the industry!”
"We recently had a one-on-one coaching session that I feel, once I complete everything she suggested, I will be in prime position for work when our industry is back!"
Raquel offered up a lot of great nuggets of information that resonated with me during her Backstage webinar. To the extent that I have since attended several of her pop up classes and joined her Actors Mark community for continued training and coaching! We recently had a one-on-one coaching session that I feel, once I complete everything she suggested, I will be in prime position for work when our industry is back! Raquel is amazing!
"Raquel is a great teacher because she pushes me to practice being more of myself."
Raquel is an awesome acting coach. She likes having a good time. Improv is the best because Raquel encourages me to use my imagination. We laugh and get silly which helps me be more spontaneous and in character. Raquel is a great teacher because she pushes me to practice being more of myself. I love taking classes and privates with her. “ Emma, 8 “Training with Raquel at The Actors Mark is inspiring. She understands how to bring out the best in me so that I bring myself to every character I play. She respects me and genuinely cares about me as a person. I especially like taking privates with her because she pushes me to be better.”
"I can honestly say that I would be lost as an actor in LA without Raquel, and I cannot praise her enough."
“I can honestly say that I would be lost as an actor in LA without Raquel, and I cannot praise her enough. The first time we met, I went from feeling unsure of where my path should even begin to being able to clearly see a road to success in this crazy industry.
She is more than a teacher, she is a mentor, and that is because she takes a genuine interest in her student’s lives, guiding them not only
technically, but on a deeper and almost
spiritual level. Her approach is entirely personal so if you are willing to put in the work and dedicate yourself, you will find exactly what you need.
