Qualified Speech and Language Therapist offering Accent Softening/Reduction Online via Skype to individuals

Methodology

******* I'm here to help! ********

Claire owns an accent reduction & elocution company called All Good Elocution.

Claire will carry out a full analysis and assessment of your speech/accent (1 hour chargable session), then your lessons will follow. You will learn a lot even in the first assessment session! Lessons can be 45 minutes (£45) or 1 hour (£50) - whatever works for you and your lifestyle.

Claire is a qualified and experienced Speech and Language Therapist by background with 7 years experience. She has a BSc (Hons) in Speech and Language Therapy. She has learnt solid theory in phonetics and uses phonetic transcription, which she completed several modules in at university. Claire has a specialism in accent softening/reduction therapy but can also offer advice around achieving clear & interesting sounding speech quality. Claire's delivers this online tutoring via Skype/Zoom or similar online screen sharing platforms.

Initially, Claire can offer a free 10 minute consultation via phone/Skype/Facetime whereby we can discuss what you would like to achieve. Claire will then take a sample of your speech to analyse prior to starting the assessment session, this way we can tailor the sessions to you and your accent/speech.

Claire works from home, so has good flexibility with when she can offer appointments - including during the day, evenings and weekends. Claire is very happy for you to book in advance so that you can plan your sessions around your life.

The sessions will be tailored to you and what you would like to achieve. Generally, the sessions are based on working on changing sounds (vowels and consonants), intonation, syllable stress and clarity of speech.

Claire is absolutely amazing and supportive. Learned so much with her and thankfully she is a very patient, thoughtful person and very clear explaining how/what/when. I thought I was able to speak proper English but of course the correct British pronunciation has so many nuances that I wasn’t aware of. She is very crystal clear about the explanation how the position of the mouth should be, because as you understand, there’s a lot of phonetic sounds that don’t exist in my mother tongue.

R
Rita

Claire is absolute brilliant at the way she structures accent reduction lessons. She is always prepared for the lesson and have all the relevant materials prepared in advance. Claire is really prompt at responding and shares the lesson materials straight away after the class is finished. She can explain things clearly and is very calm and patient. She’s helped me to make a noticeable improvement in my English pronunciation. I would highly truly recommend her lessons!

P

I did 7 sessions over about two months with Claire. She was prepared, thoughtful and supportive. The work we did was very useful.

K

Very good teacher and very professional.

Ibrahim

Claire has helped me with endless support, cooperation and patience to enhance my English pronunciation through a English therapy course. She is an expert and she has provided all the needs to instill the confidence in me. With outstanding commitment we have never missed any appointments and always have a clear plan and agenda for each conducted session. I am indeed lucky to get supported by such personality, experience and contiguous support and motivation. Whatever vocabulary or words I write will remain insufficient to convey her effort and sincerity.
