Helping you to be a better, clearer communicator

Overview

I'm Anthony, a UK-based voice and accent tutor. I train professionals who speak fluent but strongly-accented English to be better, clearer communicators and avoid the dreaded question, 'sorry, could you say that again?' Wherever you are in the world, I can help you, via Skype, to avoid misunderstandings and speak with confidence.

Service Description

You're a skilled professional. English isn't your first language, but you use it all the time, mostly for work, and you're fluent. Or you're from an English-speaking part of the world, like India or Singapore, where the local accent isn't all that familiar to American, British or Australian colleagues or clients. And sometimes, they struggle to understand you, and it's embarrassing, for you and for them.

Even in a global marketplace, it's a common problem: fluent English speakers often have trouble making themselves understood. I offer one-to-one tuition in accent softening and effective communication skills, wherever you are in the world, via Skype: my tuition is based on standard British English or Received Pronunciation (RP) English, which is not only a globally-recognised accent: it has many distinctive features which make it an effective tool for communicating with authority and impact.

I typically start with a taster session, an hour-long class where I listen to your spoken English and identify which sounds are causing the most confusion and how I can tailor the course to suit your situation and your needs.
