Florence has worked with both my daughters in developing speech and debate skills for over 5 years now. Within a short period of time, I saw a tremendous improvement in their ability to communicate effectively in the public. Over a period of time, my current High School daughter has gained so much confidence in her ability to converse freely that she does not hesitate when it comes to talking to her teachers, peers, or lead a group. The skills she has gained over a period of time with Florence’s mentorship have improved her academic performance because of improved writing, communication, and critical thinking skills. We certainly believe that these very essential skills will not only improve her confidence level but, also better prepare her for the future.
