"I took Speech and Drama lessons with Anna in 2015. I enjoyed my classes as I was pushed to explore my boundaries as a speaker and performer, this led to me being particularly pleased with my Grade Eight Exam results. I would recommend Anna's teaching skills/service to other senior students willing to further and improve their work in Speech and Drama. Anna helped be choose strong and challenging pieces, while allowing me to have fun and craft them to my personal skills and liking. I thoroughly enjoyed being her student last year."
