“I first came in contact with Roslyn McIvor when she taught me speech and drama in primary school. I now home school my daughters and was looking for a speech and drama teacher who would offer them the skills to be able to speak confidently and clearly in all situations.
My daughters have developed this skill under Ros’ teaching but also learnt many more skills that help not only in speech in drama but also academically as well. Ros allows students to choose their own pieces for eisteddfods and exams which encourages the students to develop ownership over the piece and bring to it their interpretations of characters. This encourages the child’s imagination and aids them to consider a literary work with critical thinking.
I am very impressed with the confidence my girls have gained not only as public performers but as writers and readers in general.”
“I just love speech and drama! I am going to do it for ever and ever.”
