Communication Training from an experienced and reputable coach! VASTA Member teaching Articulation, Elocution, Public Speaking, Presentation

I privately coach personalised Speech courses in London or online via Zoom, Skype or Google Meetings. Speech training has helped millions of people throughout history, including myself, find command and confidence in speech. Following five years of the highest standard of training up to Masters level I have a rounded knowledge of many tried and tested training techniques, from Linklater technique to Taoist voice practice. If you want to learn to use your voice as a tool and stop seeing it as an obstacle, you’re in the right place!

In any speech course of training I run, in our first session, we will discuss and identify your specific goals. Then, I will detail a strategy to achieve those goals. All the following features will be considered as I teach you, but we will prioritise different features at different times according to my recommendation.

1. Body: Posture, Movement, Muscle Tension, Vocal Tract Sensation, Health and Exercise.
2. Breath: Placing and Control.
3. Channel: Face, Lips, Jaw, Tongue, Soft Palate, Pharyngeal, Laryngeal.
4. Phonation: Qualities of Phonation, Phonatory Stamina, Onset.
5. Resonance: Features of Head, Oral and Chest Resonant Quality + Focus of Oral Placing.
6. Pitch: Centre, Range and Intonation Patterns/Variety.
7. Loudness: Overall Volume of Speech, Variety and Control, and use in Emphasis.
8. Articulation: Consonant and Vowel Clarity, Pace, Pause, Fluency, Rhythm.
9. Accent: If you would like we may discuss accent training as well.

I am a highly reputed voice and speech coach who has worked internationally for large companies and with high profile private clients. You can not get better training in this field than I have received, completing training in Cambridge, New York and London including a masters in Voice Studies: Teaching and Coaching from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and a 3 year Conservatory training at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.

Throughout my career, professionals across numerous sectors have engaged in speech coaching from myself. From doctors to architects to actors, all have expressed total satisfaction with my coaching. To clarify, working with me will help you to fill rooms with your voice, capture people’s attention and show off your natural, previously untapped charisma. Above all, it is very important to me that each student discovers the full potential of their voice.

When you think about it, we have to speak so often. Consequently, when talking makes you feel inadequate and self-conscious, every day of life can have nightmarish qualities. Instead, discover a way to use speech to always feel powerful, competent and satisfied.

Portuguese Language and Brazilian Culture: Learn with fun!
Do you want to speak Portuguese and get closer to the Brazilian culture in a fun and dynamic way? Well, I am a Brazilian who can show you our History, our art, customs and the great diversity of Brazilian Portuguese accents, as if you were on a virtual trip to Brazil. I have been teaching my language to people of different levels and objectives for more than two years, which gave me great experience in adapting my classes according to the needs of each student. Thus, in addition to traditional grammar, I use movies, songs, literature and other resources according to the profile of each student. In Brazil, I worked in schools and science museums, where I gained practice teaching children, youth, and adults. I also worked writing and reviewing articles for magazines, so I have great experience with the written Portuguese language. I offer online classes via webcam or face-to-face (in Granada, Spain) so that the student can choose the way that suits him best.

We will do this by reading, listening and I will be explaining the Dutch grammar step by step. Afterwards I will challenge you with some homework you need to prepare for the next time ;) Ready for this challenge? See you in my class than!!!

MAKING ONESELF HEARD! (For Public Speaking & Presentations)
Explore Public Speaking through... Intonation and Melody When training for a presentation, decide which words and passages deserve extra attention and increase the tone to emphasize these points. If something sounds exaggerated or false, your audience can turn against you. Volume A speech is not ordinary conversation, and a presenter can’t convey passion and enthusiasm if the words are delivered softly. Clarity Don’t forget to articulate every word, to ensure clarity on your part and understanding on the part of the audience. Emphasis Even in the same sentence, emphasizing different words can change the focus of a message. Changing emphasis can alter meaning and/or implication. Pauses when pauses are placed in strategic spots in a speech, they can make the difference between a good and an excellent presentation. There are several purposes for which pauses can be used: to give listeners a chance to absorb something that’s just been said; to generate expectations about something that’s going to be said... Pacing & Tone If you often get negative feedback about the faster or slower delivery of your speeches, practice delivering a speech sometimes faster and sometimes slower, so you can arrive at a natural pace.
