Q&As

Meeting people and the feeling that I am helping them.

I had spent many years working as an employee in communications but reached the stage where I wanted to control my own destiny.

I have a unique skillset, being trained and experienced in a whole range of communications skills, both written and spoken. Also I like to think I am a very nice person!

Services

Do you feel that the way you talk or write lets you down?

I can help you.

Through private tuition I can show you how to improve your communication skills and express yourself with confidence and in your own style. If you are a nervous speaker, find conversation difficult or are conscious of your accent I can work with you to help you find your real voice and speak naturally and genuinely.

If you have problems with written work, spelling, grammar, presentation or style I can give you the skills you need to produce good quality work. I can correct any bad habits into which you have fallen in your written English.

I offer tutoring and coaching in the following subjects:

• Elocution
• Accent Reduction
• Confident Speaking
• Making a Speech
• Essay Report and Dissertation Writing
• Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation
• Media/Communications Studies
• Interview Skills
• Public Speaking
• Journalism/Writing
• Presentation Writing and Delivery
• Creativity Coaching

This list is not exhaustive - please contact me if you are looking for a subject not listed here. Please note that I do not offer an essay-writing service - I can help you write an essay or dissertation but I can't write it for you.

I normally arrange individual sessions in my clients’ homes or workplace and I am happy to travel anywhere in the North East of England. For this service I charge by the hour: the number of sessions depends on the amount of tuition needed but you can stop any time you like. The first session is free and without obligation.

If you are an employer, looking for ways to improve the communication skills of your staff, check out the Training section of this website.

As an employer, are you confident that your employees' communication skills are up to scratch? Do they communicate efficiently with one another? When they communicate with clients or potential clients, do they promote the image you want for your business?

I can help you by helping them.

I specialise in arranging bespoke workshops and courses for employees, designed with your input, which address the communication issues you feel are important. Whether the sessions are for individual staff, or groups of 6 or ten or more, I can provide quality training which will make sure you are getting your message across.
