« Sir Timothy is unmatched by other tutors. Students will benefit from tailored training based on their level of English. We went through exercises to improve the diction and clarity of my speech including exercises on vowels and consonants and breathing. What I find most valuable is his wider vision and expectation of his students: he has also helped me learn to appreciate English culture. Having been with him for 2 years I still enjoy my time with him and cannot recommend him more highly. »

Timothy - Westbourne Grove - Acting

Methodology

I offer classes to individuals and small groups. My tuition will be of interest to people who want to improve their grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and confidence.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I offer classes in elocution, accent reduction, vocal coaching, public speaking and acting. I believe our voice is an instrument and in today's world communication, confidence and conversation have been undermined; take back your individuality through your voice and speak your best.

- How much do you charge?

An initial consultation is charged at £35, during which your aims will be discussed and your voice will be assessed. A standard lesson, in person or via Skype will be charged at £50. Discounts are available for bookings of six classes or more.

- Where do you teach?

Classes are offered at my home in Notting Hill.

- When are you available?

Please contact me to discuss availability.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and abilities.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring is available via Skype.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I began my career as an actor in 1979 at Southwold summer theatre, a weekly repertory theatre company. I went on to appear in many West End productions through the years, notably Macbeth at The Old Vic, Man and Superman at The Theatre Royal Haymarket. Following a two year run in Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell at The Apollo, I went on to form my own production company.

My narration work includes A Christmas Carol and The Signalman by Charles Dickens, Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome, short stories by Stacy Aumonier and Saki as well as most recently My Italian Bulldozer by Alexander McCall Smith.

I have worked extensively in the City as a coach and public speaker for such organisations as The Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors, Microrent plc and Smith Williamson. I provide private tutorials on voice production, elocution and presentation skills to a wide range of clients, from actors to executives.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at LAMDA, shortly before being nominated for most promising newcomer in the west end Theatre awards.

I was looking for an elocution teacher to improve my English.Anxious to find an experienced professional who would understand my concerns and would be able to find a bespoke solution,i was very lucky to find Sir Timothy.
The progress came quickly,,but i discovered so much more with Sir Timothy.A professional,a thoroughly delightful man so generous in sharing his life experiences and knowledge of the world.Each class is a joy and a wonderful journey into poetry,literature and ultimately,

Timothy,your work and care of Nicolas has been both inspirational and miraculous.You've taken a sports-mad,testosterone filled "poetry is boring,doesn't make sense and is for girls'kind of boy and forced a hundred degree turn.
The effect of this on Nicolas will be both positive and profound during his lifetime.What you have achieved is awe inspiring and you have our total admiration.

Working with Sir Timothy has been a great pleasure and privilege.Sir Timothy focuses first on vocal techniques and building one's self confidence.
Through his classes,i've improved my voice,built good self confidence and tackled my inhibitions around public speaking.
I'd highly recommend his classes to tackle fears of public speaking and to discover your own vocal strength and variety.
