What kind of experience do you have?
I was recently teaching general English, business English, pronunciation, communication and presentation skills to students online in China. I was teaching one to one classes and group lessons. The range of students varied from those looking to improve their general English to those students who were looking to improve their English elocution and communication skills for the Business Market. The lessons concentrated on presentation skills and public speaking. Before this, in 2007 I moved to Romania and I became aware of the fact whilst teaching TEFL that my students were more interested in the use of the skills of pronunciation and tone to further their linguistic abilities. I became aware that whilst the grammatical structure of English is very important, the ability to speak English succinctly was perhaps equally important or more so. Since returning from Romania, I undertook a second ESL course at Stonebridge College for which I received a Distinction.
How much do you charge?
The course consists of 5 tailored Lessons which are spread over a five week period, an hour per week.

Why is my course better than others? Well, learning should be an enjoyable experience. Modern techniques Elocution classes can be very frustrating, insisting on students getting to grips with the 44 sounds of English . My approach is to get people to listen to the sound of ones own voice. If you are interested on how this proceeds then please contact for friendly, informative tuition. I was interviewed on the BBC world service and the Times newspaper to provide my insight into spoken English.
I am from Windsor and speak with Received Pronunciation (also known as standard or neutral English). I have also provided voice overs for various multimedia presentations and audio books.
