You could learn how to speak confidently at meetings and clubs.

Group lessons can be arranged if there is enough demand

 I've taught lecturers at Bournemouth University, trainee doctors for the NHS, sports coaches, business people, health care workers, stroke victims, at schools and with national charities.

In 1996 I started the 'Speak Up' Academy of Speech and Drama and hundreds of children have passed Acting and Speech and Drama exams, some have gone on to appear on television and all enjoyed the end of year shows they performed in.

I now specialize in one to one private lessons for children and adults and workshops for businesses.

I've also written articles for various magazines worldwide including: The Lady, The Voice and Speech Review,  the PTR Tennis Pro, Dancing Magazine and the International Tennis Federation Coaching and Sport Science Review.

Each lesson is 45 mins long and costs 12 euros

Available 8 am - 5pm 7 days a week

These lessons are fun and addictive and UK nationally recognised exams can be taken if required, click here for details. Exams taken by Skype (but if I can get enough demand they will send an examiner to us).

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
