Dear Toni,
I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: “I had the pleasure, good fortune and delightful opportunity of working with Toni this past August while attending NYFA @ Universal Studios.
She is a master of her craft. A wealth of knowledge, talent & creative ability which she generously shares in a brilliant rapid-fire fashion. If I were to say she were worth her weight in gold that would be an understatement….she is far more valuable than that!”

Thank you so much for this amazing class and for your hard work. Thank you for being the beautiful person, talented actress I’m getting to know and for being such a sensitive and skilled acting coach I’m having the privilege to work with. See you in class.
Love & Light,


Hi Professor Attell,

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your microseminar. It must have been hard to learn people’s names in just two 90 minute sessions. If you remember, when we were acting, you played the part of my mother who yelled at me for drinking in the house.

Acting is something that I’ve always had a passion for. Your microseminar helped me improve tremendously. I would love to take something again with you at some point. Is there a place where I could find a list of the courses you teach?

I already miss being in the classroom with you. Thanks again!
