I trained in Phonetics at the University of Westminster, London and gained the International Phonetics Association Certificate of Proficiency in the Phonetics of English in June 2000. I have 19 years’ experience of teaching accents and dialects, accent softening, English pronunciation and English communication skills. My clients include both native and non-native English speakers, such as actors who wish to master a particular accent as well as business people and others who wish to improve their speech, elocution and communication skills in their working and daily lives. I have helped many non-native speakers reduce a strong accent so as to make themselves more easily understood and communicate more effectively in English. I offer one-to-one online lessons via Skype video, with each course carefully tailored to the needs of the individual, ensuring that my clients receive consistent, dedicated and high-quality tuition. If you are too busy to take classes, the Audio Study Zone of this website is designed to provide you with a practical online study resource that is convenient and time efficient to practise with.

Aside from teaching accents and voice, I also have extensive experience of teaching English Communication courses to groups and individuals, having been a qualified EFL teacher for the past 25 years. From 1995 to 1999 I taught at the Cambridge Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark, preparing adults for Cambridge English Examinations and at Business Language Services, Copenhagen, teaching group and one-to-one courses in companies such as A.P. Moller and Maersk Air. I then went on to teach Business English Communication courses in various London-based companies, such as Bloomberg Television, Walt Disney, Korea Development Bank, UBS Warburg, Credit Suisse, Ernst & Young and Investec, helping clients to brush up their communication skills for presentations and meetings.
