******* All Good Elocution is here to help! ********

Claire owns an Accent Reduction & Elocution company called All Good Elocution. She has a small team of tutors, that can fit around your schedule and lifestyle. All Good Elocution are able to offer appointments during the weekdays, weekends & evenings.

Claire or one of the team will carry out a full analysis and assessment of your speech/accent (1 hour chargable session), we will follow this up with a goal summary document. You will learn a lot of theory even in the first assessment session!
After this, your lessons will follow. Lessons can be 45 minutes (£50) or 1 hour (£60) - whatever works for you and your schedule. Clients can choose to take 1, 2 or 3 lessons a week.

Claire is a qualified and experienced Speech and Language Therapist by background with 8 years experience. She has a BSc (Hons) in Speech and Language Therapy. She has learnt solid theory in phonetics and uses phonetic transcription, which she completed several modules in at university.

Claire and her tutors have specialism in Accent Softening/Reduction therapy but can also offer advice around achieving clear & interesting sounding speech quality, being concise and higher level English vocabulary. Claire and her team deliver all lessons online via Zoom or similar.

Initially, Claire can offer a free 10-15 minute consultation via phone whereby we can discuss what you would like to achieve. Claire will then take a sample of your speech to analyse prior to starting the assessment session, this way we can tailor the sessions to you and your accent/speech.

The sessions will be tailored to you and what you would like to achieve. Generally, the sessions are based on working on changing sounds (vowels and consonants), intonation, syllable stress and clarity of speech.

We also offer an intense course of lessons for those who are looking for a fast pace change.

Details

I am able to offer a free 10 minute initial informal discussion via the phone or Skype where we can discuss your aims and what you would like to achieve in the lessons. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about the process!

Please note: The assessment session will be at a cost of £60, this will include analysis of your speech sample and a 1 hour one to one session.

Perfect! Claire is a wonderful speech therapist teacher, before she wants to go more in depth in the subject she takes the time to understand what are your objectives and explains very well the theory and the practice of speaking so everyone can understand you if English is not your mother tongue. After 5 lessons of 45 minutes with her, I feel more confident to speak English. I seriously recommend Claire with no hesitation. Thank Claire!

The lessons are well organised and I particularly enjoyed the exercises Claire sends after each lessons, so I can practice between each sessions.

Claire is absolutely amazing and supportive. Learned so much with her and thankfully she is a very patient, thoughtful person and very clear explaining how/what/when. I thought I was able to speak proper English but of course the correct British pronunciation has so many nuances that I wasn’t aware of. She is very crystal clear about the explanation how the position of the mouth should be, because as you understand, there’s a lot of phonetic sounds that don’t exist in my mother tongue.

R
Rita

Claire is absolute brilliant at the way she structures accent reduction lessons. She is always prepared for the lesson and have all the relevant materials prepared in advance. Claire is really prompt at responding and shares the lesson materials straight away after the class is finished. She can explain things clearly and is very calm and patient. She’s helped me to make a noticeable improvement in my English pronunciation. I would highly truly recommend her lessons!

Very good teacher and very professional.

Claire has helped me with endless support, cooperation and patience to enhance my English pronunciation through a English therapy course. She is an expert and she has provided all the needs to instill the confidence in me. With outstanding commitment we have never missed any appointments and always have a clear plan and agenda for each conducted session. I am indeed lucky to get supported by such personality, experience and contiguous support and motivation. Whatever vocabulary or words I write will remain insufficient to convey her effort and sincerity.

"I had a relaxing, enjoyable great time at the sessions I had with Claire Goodall and I would like to thank you for being such a patient and good teacher! I have learnt a lot from from the sessions and worksheets you provided which have proved invaluable.

There is definitely a positive change in the way I communicate and my accent has reduced to the extent that it is noticeable.

I now speak with confidence.

THANK YOU!!!"
