About the lesson

I am a specialist in phonetics and linguistics. I have developed a unique approach to accent reduction that is both fast and effective.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach my students how to acquire a more neutral accent. I also prepare candidates for the speech and communication examinations of: LAMDA, National College of Music and Arts and Victoria College. These examinations cover the following topics: Speaking in Public, Speaking of Verse and Prose and Reading for Performance.

PhD MA BSc CT,FVCM LVCMEd LVCM(TD) LNCM.
