"Working with Jeff Thomakos in the Michael Chekhov Technique is always joyful. Jeff's knowledge of the work is deep and he teaches the Technique in a meaningful and loving way. Like Chekhov suggests, Jeff is always "with" his students. His love of actors and the acting craft is infectious. I thoroughly enjoy working with Jeff and watching him work."

"I have mentored teachers from around the world over twenty five years and when I say you are in great hands with Jeff Thomakos, a caring, creative, and powerful Michael Chekhov teacher, I am serious. This technique will free you in ways you never thought possible and with Jeff’s expansive knowledge of how to practically use the work, you will fall in love with the art, your self as an artist and every aspect of living that fully. Experience Jeff and play heartily, and you will know this yourself."

" Jeff creates an extremely open and safe classroom environment, allowing for students to take risks and even embarrass themselves a little. Jeff not only changed how I approach acting, but altered how I see life as a whole. I truly have a deeper understanding of the human experience and all it has to offer"
