enrol on my video course instead

I have now created an online course which you will be able to access for the rest of your life. This course covers everything that is on the DVD and is cheaper. You will have the opportunity to ask me questions 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You also get immediate access to it - you don't have to wait for the postman to deliver it. More details about the course are here


I am a qualified elocution teacher/speaking consultant and I have been teaching pupils, adults and children for over 20 years. I've taught teachers, lecturers, charity workers, doctors, lawyers, scientists, business owners, sales people, receptionists, students and school children.

6 Benefits of joining the course

  1. People will be able to hear you more easily because you will know how to avoid mumbling
  2. Listeners will remember what you say with greater ease.
  3. You will have more confidence in your voice

  5. You'll have the confidence to speak to your boss, your employees, teachers, salespeople etc.

If you want to improve your speaking in some way enrol on my Speaking Confidently video course. It is 1 hour 15 mins long and payment is by paypal so no signing up to any external site.  This is an improved version of my successful DVD.  My video courses are like having a lesson with me - just you and me doing exercises and learning all the tricks of the trade and they are a fraction of the cost of a private lesson and you can watch it over and over again forever.


What people say about my courses

'Recommend to all speakers of the English Language who wish to improve or correct their pronunciation. The Teacher has a great way of explaining concepts and the reasons why a pronunciation should be correctly pronounced in a certain way. I like the tutor's way of teaching,which is a traditional style,that has substance and clarity. Video and Audio quality is very good.' - Shaun, Aug 2018

'I had a mumbling issue which led me to go to a speech therapist and pay £100 per session, after losing £200 and still not having a solution, I came across this course and I had quickly found the solution to my problem. Over and above that, I got a lot more out of this course, more than anything a real enlightenment as to how I speak, how that comes across and how I can improve my speech to get better outcomes out of conversations and speeches. Thank you Serena.' Reuben, Aug 2018

What people say about me .....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

'....explained everything professionally well and honest she gave very good useful tips and has this unique charm and engaging voice that soothes my fears of always being afraid to speak to others because they might judge me and she was thoroughly precise and to the point and she gave quite a lot of useful longevity tips for everyday use. IMPRESSIVE 5 STARS!!'  Laurie , Aug 2018

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, Feb 2018
