I teach students at my home, there home or office and increasingly on SKYPE. I'm very flexible and work round my students requirements as far as possible.
I am based in Ealing with excellent transport facilities and teach from Twickenham, Richmond, Chiswick, Hammersmith, right through to the City of London. However many students like to come to me and I have my own studio and teaching room and tea. SKYPE has been a real boon for many students, they really enjoy it's convenience. it has also allowed me to teach as far away as Australia and easily across Europe.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach online using 'SKYPE', which has proved really popular, it is convenient and flexible. Nothing quite compares to a personal, 'one to one' lesson, but with some adjustments and a slowing down of pace the SKYPE medium can work very successfully. I've certainly enjoyed the opportunity it has given me to be able to teach almost anywhere in the world.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Presentation skills can be learnt, they are the the foundation from which the speaker springs
.Accent reduction and Elocution are about muscles, memory and repetition, you need to be tenacious, if you are you'll be surprised at how quickly you can progress.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching, Public speaking, Acting and Accent reduction for ten years now, and find it both interesting and rewarding. Over the years I've learnt such a lot from my ever changing students.

The discussion in defense went very well, even better than I expected.

I was able to answer the questions with crisp, self-confident
answers. Quite a few native speakers of English commented afterwards
that my speech had improved a lot. So, I cannot thank you enough for
your help! I think committing to long-term 'studies' via Skype with
you is one of the best choices I have ever made!
Just wanted to let you know that everything went very well today
I enjoyed the whole experience. The feedback I received from the organisers was fab, they said it was the best presentation out of all the commissioners they had worked with across London! That I had done a very good job of pitching high level strategic information at just the right level for people to understand.
And they asked if they could use it as a model for future events!
All extremely positive, thank you very much for your help
