Max (7) and Charlie (5) have been students at The Diamond Academy of Performing Arts for over 6 months now and in this short period of time they have both made incredible progress. Charlie was a very shy preschooler and didn’t enjoy public speaking at all. He has just started kindergarten and is radiating confidence and maturity. He is now very happy to do presentations in front of his class and he is speaking and reading beautifully. We are thrilled by this transformation. Max has always been a confident child and Ms. Andrea is doing a wonderful job enhancing his communication and acting skills. We recently moved interstate and feel very lucky that the boys can continue their sessions with Ms. Andrea via Zoom as they thoroughly enjoy the class. I highly recommend The Diamond Academy of Performing Arts.
I am writing this review to express our thanks and gratitude to Ms. Andrea for the significant progress I have observed with my son attending your classes.
My son is in Kindergarten. I attended a “parent/teacher” conference earlier this year and the the teacher’s feedback was that my son was shy, and did not fully participate in the “show and tell” aspect of of the class. The take away inference- whether she stated it explicitly or not, was that he lacked confidence. I was surprised with this feedback left wondering how my child, with his upbringing, could possibly lack confidence.
I sought out schools that focused on speech arts, and the Diamond Academy was second to none. We noticed improvement after only one session with Ms. Andrea – and so did others. My wife and I had other parents coming up to us inquiring how our 6 year old was presenting so well. The simple answer is that the only thing we did was to register him with the Diamond Academy of Performing Arts.
My son is no longer the “shy” boy that cannot present in front of his class. He does not blush and get flustered when asked to present in front of the class. He is now exuding self-confidence. Thank you. Thank you so very much for teaching our son how to publicly speak; the importance of which, in our opinion, is the basic necessity for any job in today’s society.

Communication is such a key part of social life, and fortunately there are teachers like Ms. Andrea who helped my son get better and progress in a path to excel in it. My son is very interested in acting, and Diamond Academy has been helping him shape communication techniques and methods to meet his goals and also challenging him to get to next levels in learning. We are very happy with improvements in his speaking/acting skills and he continues to look forward for his class. I strongly recommend Ms. Andrea, for her one-on-one attention to cater to my sons needs and communication goals.
