"Rob taught not only drama and comedy techniques but also teamwork, responsibility and methods to resolve differences. His own enthusiasm for the work was boundless and they really responded. The journey children took was very flexible and organic and showed how Rob could easily adapt to the needs of his audience. He got terrific results and progress, particularly from those children who initially found the work challenging, as he was able to improve their confidence and self-esteem. He also motivated the members of staff he worked with through close teamwork and provided limitless resources and ideas which could be used within the school in times to come. Rob's skills with teaching, motivating and empowering the children ensured not only a fantastic final film, but also gave them knowledge and skills which they will all use in the future."
