Helen has taught both our children from a young age. We have always been very impressed with her expertise and professionalism.
Our children love their lessons with Helen and have so much fun, she gives them poise, confidence and polish which their expensive Prep schools did not match!
They both sailed through all their school interviews with Helen's outstanding presentation skills.
My children, Eleanor and Tom have been working on Drama training with Helen. Their confidence and belief in their abilities has improved dramatically. Even after a tiring day at school they look forward to the sessions and enjoy every minute of them. I can't recommend Helen Clark more highly.
I have worked with Helen individually for two LAMDA exams as well as in group classes. She makes everything really fun and not seem like hard work at all. She is really encouraging but tells you where you need to improve and how to do it. I hope to work with Helen again soon.
