This is how 2 referees rated Prue:
Acting / Drama
I am a fully qualified and experienced Actress (East 15 Acting School), Teacher (University of Cambridge) and Acting Coach (True Acting Institute, USA).
As a coach I specialize in Voice: Received Pronunciation and Accent Reduction/Softening, and in The Meisner Approach to Acting.
My Acting training began in Paris in the 1990s at Action Studio in the 13th arrondissement. At East 15, I specialized in Acting for TV, Film and Radio, after which I undertook three conservatory courses in The Sanford Meisner Technique at The Actors Temple and The Impulse Company, both in London, and at Larry Silverberg's True Acting Institute, Eckerd College, Florida.
I offer lessons in Acting, Accent Reduction/Softening, Elocution, Speech and Drama and all related subjects, including public speaking and presentation skills. I also specialize in preparing candidates for LAMDA examinations and Drama School entrance auditions, as well as general castings and performances.
I am bilingual and happy to train actors through the medium of French as well as English, and, in addition to my PGCE, I hold a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Cambridge University / RSA).
Organized, enthusiastic and motivating, I enjoy the proven ability to communicate material successfully to individuals, classes and audiences of all ages, and have accordingly gained the respect, appreciation and love of hundreds of students (young and old) in my 25 years' experience as a teacher, lecturer and private tutor.
Key words for me as a trainer are clarity, simplicity, patience, variety, appropriately graded steps, achievable but real challenges, empowerment and fun - all with a view to ensuring my students achieve the progress and learning satisfaction they deserve.

I would highly recommend her.
Its fun to learn with Prue because she makes it fun and completely makes me feel at ease.
Even when I have felt a little uncertain, Prue has encouraged me to keep pushing forward and to act as if I were confident. Reinventing yourself and believing in your continuous improvement are gifts from Prue, and I owe her a debt of gratitude.
Someone that stands by your side and shows devotion with no end. The person that encourages you to reach for your dreams and goals. The only person in the world in whom to confide your deepest fear of speech and who helps you to pronounce and articulate your words. Someone you're blessed with… I call mine Prue!
