You are starting out in your career - your future is before so give value to your English studies and your public speaking skills

I have taught English Language and Literature through GCSE to A Level and now specialise in supporting students in their English studies through individual and small group tuition.

Having the best grade you can achieve in your written exams is important ....AND something you may not realise is that your power as a spoken communicator is very important too.
The thought of speaking in public often terrifies us but once you can master this wonderful skill it can be really liberating and open many doors to your successful future hand in hand with the qualifications you have earned.

I can give you the skills set you need to be a good public speaker . You will learn how to design, structure and deliver a speech in English relevant to your chosen career using a clear accent and English pronunciation giving you status on the international stage.

You need to let everyone know how GREAT you are by performance speaking articulate and persuasive English in your professional life.

I can come to you for face to face sessions or deliver online sessions in:

  • GCSE and A Level English Language and English Literature
  • Public Speaking and presentation skills as a group workshop or for individual students.

The Talking Wall is a programme where my client[s] and I look at various ways that better spoken communication skills might relieve them of a psychological barrier causing anxiety and lack of confidence. Confident speaking and articulating your thoughts appropriately are the foundation stones of personal development and success at any stage of your life.

Here is my 9 point plan of tips and tricks to break down the bricks and find your pathway forward as a good speaker:
