Ann has a wonderful rapport with her student. Her ability to connect with her students and use various speech/accent techniques to best suit her student are wonderful. She is extremely organized and reliable. She provides excellent teaching materials to help improve her student's performance and her classes are both positive and fun.
I am an overseas medical practitioner and I was having difficulties in passing the exam to become a GP in the UK due to problems with my spoken English. I contacted Ann for elocution and accent reduction lessons and after just four months I successfully passed. She gave me the vocal confidence and tools to communicate with my patients with ease and clarity .
I have found Ann Adlem to be a very competent, professional, and reliable singing teacher, who in the twelve months that I have been a pupil has raised both my confidence levels and improved my range. The encouragement and support that she has given has inspired me to solo performances in public
I've worked with Ann over the past few months and thoroughly recommend her as a vocal and elocution coach. Ann's professionalism is excellent and I've found her to be extremely supportive in developing my confidence within work and non-work situations. Ann tailor made a program to develop my vocal abilities and it's been a fantastic experience – through the different exercises that Ann has taught me, I've really changed. I'd be delighted to recommend Ann to other students and organisations.
Employing Ann to help with my 14 year old son's lack of confidence and mumbled speech was one of the best things I've ever done. She worked with him for just under two years, building a relationship that he could trust. At the end of that time, both his speech, and confidence were vastly improved. The culmination of which was a Trinity speech exam in which he gained a distinction! What a long way he's come: he's gained so much more than the ability to speak clearly. We have Ann to thank for that
