 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

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.

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!

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. The teachers were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
