    "My daughter LOVES going to drama class. I thought maybe this would last for a term but two years later Drama Remedy is still the high point of Kate's week and she's had some great exam results into the bargain. Maneesha has small class sizes and endless activities to inspire her students creativity and skills. My younger daughter, who avoids the limelight, has also loved the drama holiday programmes and the skills she learned helped her through to the school speech competition finals."


    "When I first met Maneesha I had the gut feeling that here was a special teacher: intelligent, warm, eager to find work and embrace her new life in New Zealand. I crossed my fingers that others would see the potential that I saw in her. She started teaching at St Mark’s Church School shortly after we met and later established her own studio teaching outside of school hours. It wasn’t long before we started receiving exam candidates from Maneesha, and they’ve consistently achieved good and at times outstanding results – my gut feeling was right!"


    "Maneesha has been a valued Drama teacher at our After School Drama and Voice programme for students from within our school and the wider community since 2011. In our small classes she shares her expertise and inspires the students to do their very best, whilst developing their skills and confidence in communication and performance skills. This is also affirmed by their success in the Trinity College Drama and Speech examinations – and attainment of the ‘Highest Achievement Award’ in New Zealand for one such student"


    "Ever since my daughter started at Drama Remedy her confidence has grown hugely. She loves attending classes each week and Maneesha's skills and professionalism have helped install the joy of performing in my girl. Would highly recommend Drama Remedy to anyone."


    "Maneesha was a pupil of the Academy for many years. The syllabuses she followed included Speech & Drama, Effective Communication Skills, Spoken English and English Literature. These are all specialized subjects, and require meticulous work in preparing case studies, workshops and detailed lessons plans. Maneesha has proved to be an efficient and enthusiastic teacher. She has excellent class control and is able to impart her knowledge clearly and concisely. She is a hardworking, intelligent young woman with an excellent, attitude towards her work"


    "My son and daughter have been keen students of Maneesha's drama lessons for several years. Their confidence has improved greatly as have their performance and public speaking skills. Under Maneesha's expert guidance they both achieved Distinctions in their recent drama exams. Maneesha is a highly talented, enthusiastic and fun teacher who enriches her students with her passion for creativity and performing."


    "Both my daughters have enjoyed Maneesha’s holiday programmes for many years. Each time, they came back excited about what they had learned. They would even start playing together, creating plays, mimes and improvisations."
