I am a warm character and it's very important to me that we work in a safe space where you are able to realise what you're capable of. Teaching the RP accent or any accent is more of a physical practice than intellectual for the student, with repetition being key.
I tend to suggest a 10 lesson course for each person in which we cover vowel and consonant sounds, zonal work, tonal work, setting, rhythm and stress patterns and schwa replacements. It takes the first half of 4 sessions to cover all the necessary theory work after which we'll focus entirely on practical work; you speaking and me giving you specific and detailed coaching on how to improve your sound in the agreed upon direction.
I try to avoid as much theory revision or teaching as possible, preferring to teach in response to your voice while allowing you the most time possible to practice your speech, to really reinforce new muscle memory. We can always carry on further but I believe after 10 sessions you'll notice massive differences in both yourself and how others react to what you say. I may also suggest less if I feel we can get where you want to be in fewer sessions.
For those wanting to learn more about general voice practice and how to strengthen their sound, I use freeing voice and speech techniques to unlock any hang ups you have with speech. I can also give extremely specific feedback with regards to your own speech patterns and general sound. People tend to harbour physical tension within the articulator muscles which will be muffling your full voice, together we'll find ways to find more relaxation and release within speech.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Atticus will plan your first lesson with care.
I am an experienced vocal coach and professional actor with a high level of training in voice and speech. My knowledge and background enables me to teach you how to speak with ease and confidence. I completely guarantee noticeable progress with just a few lessons. Doing my full 10 hour course you're voice will become your friend and a useful tool, you'll never hate talking again!
These classes are particularly useful for those looking to gain more respect from professional peers and/or for those of whom English is a second language.
I teach full time and waver between 15 and 30 active students from all across the globe. I have received positive feedback from every student as can be reflected from my 100% 5* reviews. I have had non native students gain promotions, win speech competitions and be asked if they were English on multiple occasions. The training works and I believe it is relatively easy!

We will be using training techniques from a plethora of practitioners, mainly Cicely Berry. I've had 4 years of voice and speech training from renowned voice coaches such as Rebecca Cuthbertson, Andrew Wade and Alithea Phillips, a lot of what I teach comes directly from them.
I am a professional, working actor with agency representation and I am the founder and director of 55 Kings, a contemporary theatre company that has been operating for 4 years.
Perfect! Very good at identifying some of my pronunciation challenges and helping me with them
Perfect! Atticus is an amazing speaking coach. He is very professional and effective in correcting and empowering learners to speak more standard English.
Since started taking his classes two months ago, I made big improvements on my accent and pronunciation. I also learnt lots of speaking and presentation techniques through the classes. Thanks to the help of Atticus, I feel very confident in public speaking and totally enjoy learning English now.
Perfect! If there is someone who can help improve my accent, make me laugh and even remember how I like my tea, that's Atticus!
Atticus has a great intelligence and pronounced sensibility so he can tailor his teching method on me. Glad to have met him :)
He’s a great guy, had the pleasure of working with him in a play, most supportive member of the cast, super passionate and loves teaching. Would pay him for lessons myself.
Atticus is responsible, trustworthy and highly professional. I have known him this summer while working as Senior Teacher on a residential summer schools for secondary age students.
He would be an asset to any team, and us particularly gifted as a teacher to children and adolescents.
I've known Atticus for years now, and I'm always blown away by the extensive knowledge and intelligence he possess. He's very well read, and has the inclination to delve deeper into the subjects he's studied to formulate ideas that show in his teaching. He's also a great guy and one in whom people look up to. I highly recommend him!
