Expert public speaking and presentation skills tutor face-to-face in Warwickshire and online

Methodology

Speaking is a physical skill and the foundation of high impact communication is excellent articulation combined with appropriate modulation. This means employing pace, pitch, pause, volume, power and intensity effectively.

Correct breathing is the key to voice projection and for many clients, this is often the starting point. Without adequate support, your message may never reach its audience!
A good presentation, speech, talk or lecture depends on a dynamic combination of well-structured material and good delivery. The latter is not just about voice, but equally determined by body language and 'presence'.

I encourage my clients to work on individual speeches or presentations (both prepared and impromptu) to develop and refine their ability to deal with whatever presentation requirements they encounter, whether in their professional or social lives.

Experience


Does your job or leisure time involve public speaking?
Do you give lectures, presentations, talks or speeches?
Could you benefit from improving your style, delivery or ability to communicate with your audience?

Clear Pronunciation can provide you with the range of skills that you need to drive your message across, whatever the context, in a memorable, entertaining and informative way.

With a background in corporate communications, I turned my attention to helping both native and non-native speakers of English improve their speech and articulation, as a pronunciation and elocution coach.

In tandem with accent reduction, I also prepare students for the LAMDA exams (in which I hold a Grade 8, Gold Medal in Speaking in Public') and equip clients with the dynamic presentation techniques and strategies they need to ensure that their content is presented in a compelling way and that their audience is fully engaged.After a career in public relations spanning several decades (during which I wrote dozens of speeches and presentations), I retrained as a teacher of EFL, specialising in pronunciation.

I work with clients from all over the world and from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, to ensure that they are fully understood 100% of the time.

As a LAMDA Gold Medal holder in 'Speaking in Public', I can also help clients to develop better speaking and presentation skills, whatever their area of expertise.

Carrie was able to identify my pronunciation issues very quickly and very precisely, which has been a great help in my day-to-day communication with both colleagues and clients. I am sure that with her help I will be able to progress more effectively in my career.

Lorea Jayo, Post Production Digital Artist

Carrie is a very professional teacher with extensive knowledge of linguistics, which has helped me enormously with my pronunciation. She was able to identify my specific needs as a Spanish speaker, and provide me with practical help tailored to my level and requirements. Her enthusiasm and passion make learning a lot easier.

C
Cris Zarzoso, Customer Service Coordinator

Carrie has helped me to reduce my Spanish accent and improve my intonation. Her in-depth knowledge of pronunciation methodology alongside her understanding of foreign languages has really helped to develop my accent in an effective and enjoyable way. I would recommend Carrie highly for anyone who feels language is a barrier at work'.

A
Andrea

As an Italian I would say that pasta cannot be cooked without water and salt. In the same way, English cannot be learnt and understood without studying pronunciation, and Carrie is a first class Pronunciation Coach.

Ariana

Carrie is very aware of your specific pronunciation problems, understands the reasons behind the difficulties you experience and can recommend the best solutions to help. She's extremely patient, warm, friendly and one of the best teachers I've ever had.

Learning English pronunciation with Carrie is really helping me to get integrated, both in my job and socially. As well as being my teacher, she is also someone I know I can count on.”

Anna

Carrie has helped boost my confidence by making me more aware of English intonation, as well as improving my public speaking technique. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking to speak better English and sound more native. Her lessons are well structured and packed with useful information and practical exercises. I looked forward to every lesson I took.

Anna

Carrie stood out because of the questions she asked and the genuine interest she displayed in my learning needs from the outset. I have benefited hugely from working with her - she is a wonderful teacher, kind, reliable and always willing to to the extra mile. She identified issues that I hadn't been aware of previously and encouraged me to practise between sessions. Carrie is very passionate and enthusiastic about teaching and a joy to work with!

J
Jonathan

Carrie is very patient and helpful, as a result, I am now aware when I pronounce words incorrectly. Her lessons are excellent value for money.

G
Gaia

Carrie is definitely one of the best teachers I have ever had. From the very beginning, I could see that she loves her job and she is amazing at what she does. Carrie was incredibly patient and precise in explaining every single step. When I struggled to cope with something, she was immediately able to apply the right technique to help. Her knowledge and experience are impressive. I definitely recommend working with Carrie.
