Perfect! Studying with Gabrielle was fantastic!
She helped me to discover unknown parts of the English language, corrected my mistakes in grammar and helped me soften my accent. Now I am not ashamed to speak in public, using the exercises for preparation which she taught me. She is incredibly talented in learning, capturing all the nuances and building the curriculum exactly under the student’s needs. Well and most importantly, Gabrielle helped me to feel the depth of the English language and the rich world of English poetry!
Gabrielle, I am infinitely grateful to you for all that you have done for me, and the eighteenth sonnet is now my favourite poetry!
Thank you very much!
Alexander was a wonderful student who learned very quickly.
Thank you so much for all the help and guidance you gave me during my audition process. I think you are a phenomenally talented teacher, and it is without doubt that had I not had you as a tutor in those last three weeks, I probably would not have got in anywhere. So for that I extend my most heartfelt thanks.

Hi Gabrielle - thank you so much for the help with my monologues just thought I 'd let you know they've offered me a place. So Thank you!
I would definitely recommend Gabrielle as she has been a great help for me; she gave me excellent advice for the interpretation and direction of my monologues. I got a place at the school I wanted so I am extremely pleased. Drama Studio
Gabrielle is a true professional, tailoring each session to your specific needs. Ideal for professionals who are looking to turn that dull sales pitch into something different that will get you noticed. The lessons have been a spirit lifting experience that leaves me glowing with confidence. Gabrielle has a wonderful personality and is a lot of fun to be around.
