You may have the best ideas in the world, you may be the top  expert in your field but if people can't hear you clearly or understand what you are saying - they will never know how brilliant you are! 

Improve your speaking and communication skills today. 

This course explains how you can sound clearer and feel more confident when speaking

In my teens I was incredibly shy and hated speaking to anyone I didn't know but I had lessons in speech training and slowly improved. I qualified as a teacher of speech in 1994 and have written for magazines all over the world.

Let me help you speak more clearly right now.

My course 'How to speak clearly and confidently' will teach you how to speak and use your voice so that you have more confidence in your speaking voice and are more easily understood when talking to people in social situations, at work, school, making presentations, public speaking etc. This isn't just for people who have to do public speaking, this is also for people who just want to improve the way they speak in everyday life.

I have been teaching people to speak well for over 25 years. I am qualified to Fellowship level in elocution and I teach this course as though you were sitting opposite me in my lounge. I explain and discuss the methods and then you get a chance to have a go. You will learn the technical aspects of speaking clearly as well as the expressive aspects.  

We cover the technical skills required to speak well and the expression you need to make what you say sound interesting. There are no gimmicks just common sense with a bit of fun!

Between 80% and 90% of information is retained by listeners if delivered by a trained voice as opposed to only 40% if delivered by an untrained voice.

I was an extremely shy child and hated speaking to anyone and when I did I was nervous and quiet. I was taken to elocution lessons at the age of 10 and this had a lasting effect on me. I did not leaarn how to sound 'posh', I still have my Dorset accent when I'm not teaching. After I graduated form University (having studied Law and Economics)  I went back to my passion - teaching people how to speak with confidence. I qualified in 1994 (A.N.E.A.) and taught for over 20 years and then took my Fellowship exam in 2014 which I passed with Honours, F.V.C.M.(Hons). I have taught university lecturers, doctors, engineers, children, parents, salespeople, teachers, nurses, students, entrepreneurs - since 1994 I have taught people of all ages from all professions from all over the world to speak English more clearly. I have written articles in magazines worldwide and an academic paper.


'Wonderful thank you; fantastic clarity and easy to follow and understand!' - Emma

'A good reminder of not being lazy in speech, thank you and you are a good teacher' - Nicola

'I’m lucky enough to have had some elocution classes with Serena face-to-face some years ago in Bournemouth. Having English as a second language I used Serena’s knowledge and professionalism to help me, at first, to understand that an accent can be a part of your character and this gives your speech some flavour. The important bit is to understand and learn how to speak every single word clearly, with a good pace, with high and lows which make your speech interesting. It was enlightening, and now I have found online all those wonderful classes with a genuine English lady. This is priceless. Thank you Serena!' - Newton

'I vote five starts because I am really satisfied. Your pronunciation strategy has really helped me. Thank you very much.' - Abakar

'I learned a lot of things that I had never been taught. It seems that "how to speak" is taken for granted in a lot of ways. Also, learning to speak more clearly now seems like a reachable goal for me. I have always been self-conscious about my speaking and I am confident that by continuing to do the exericises, I will continue to feel more comfortable. Best of all, my aging parents will be able to understand me!' - Laura
