Your teaching my daughter for ten years has been consistently important to her and you have inspired her to grow and progress in her life. I cannot say enough about how much your work has contributed to her life.

Thank you so much for teaching my daughter. She has told me that since taking lessons with you for the past year she is not nearly as afraid of making school presentations. I can see that she has overcome her fear through your teaching and participating in the Speech Arts Festival.

As a Crofton School student, I have been engaged for a number of years in a multiple of extra-curricular activities. I can say without hesitation that Speech & Drama and Effective Communication lessons were invaluable. They helped me with my Literature 12 classes at school and made me a confident and composed public speaker and prepared me well for university interviews. I feel I have become an experienced public speaker and I owe it all to Lesley. The past eight years that I have spent with her have been invaluable. She is an amazing teacher and now a friend.

Lesley has taught our son Theatre for the past six years. During that time he has won First Place several times at the Coquitlam Speech Arts Festival and always passed his Trinity Guilhall examinations with Distinction. He is involved with many different theatre programs at school and throughout the summer but is committed to Lesley’s lessons. Her passion for voice, text and character development are obvious, but she also makes the lessons fun and rewarding.
