Would you like to be able to talk with more confidence? And eventually find speaking to anyone fun and easy to do?

A few years ago I was asked by my local University if I would help lecturers who were very knowledgeable about their topic but some of the students complained they couldn't understand what they were saying. I was also approached at the same time by the local G.P. (Doctor) training department to ask if I could show doctor's who were about to become G.P.s to speak more clearly so that the patients could understand them more easily. I was very keen to help, these are two groups of people who need to be heard and by teaching these people I came across many different problems that we solved together.

Improve your wealth

Perhaps you have the opportunity to get on, improve your wealth and your status, you're prepared to work hard but you think your voice lets you down. You haven't got the confidence you should have.

Do you know how to improve it - do you even know why you lack confidence? Why do people ask you to repeat things?

I can help you, I can explain what needs to be improved and quite often it isn't what you think.

A long time ago I spent hours and hours, day after day writing a book explaining to people how they can improve their voice and their spoken communication.

If you only learn one or two things from my book it will have been worth me taking the time to write it and you the time to read it. What have you got to lose? 

I know what it feels like.  When I was about ten, my school had a parents evening - you know the type of thing -the parents go along and chat to the teachers to find out how their children are getting on.  During the course of the conversation with my mum, my teacher told her that I seemed happy enough but that he couldn't remember speaking to me during the year!

My mum was furious. I was an incredibly shy girl and if he didn't speak to me I certainly wasn't going to go out of my way to speak to him. As a result of this I was taken to elocution lessons. I thoroughly enjoyed these lessons and took - and passed - various exams in speech and drama and bible reading and took part every year in the Bournemouth Festival.

These lessons gave me confidence but didn't change the way I sound - I still have a Dorset accent (although when I teach I lose it!) and I strongly believe we shouldn't all sound the same.  In 1994 I qualified (A.N.E.A.) as an elocution teacher. Since then I've taught lecturers at Universities,  trainee doctors for the NHS, sports coaches, business people, tele sales personnel, health care workers, stroke victims, at schools and with national charities. I specialize in one to one private lessons for children and adults and workshops for businesses. In June 2014 I gained my F.V.C.M.(Hons). I've taught students who have appeared in television series and who have won awards for their acting. I've also written articles for various magazines worldwide, an academic paper and have published three books about speaking with confidence.

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
