Personal Description:

I have more than twenty years experience of teaching. I train individuals and corporate clients in all aspects of English, Drama, Accent Reduction, Communication Skills, Accent Reduction, Confidence & Assertiveness. I can help you prepare for an exam at any level up to University and Professional level. I can assist in preparing you for interviews, writing CVs, essay or thesis writing. Whether you are looking for pure English or accent reduction of a foreign or regional accent or looking for help with grammar or English Literature, I can put together a program to cover your own specific needs. I work holistically and I am published author of my own original methods in voice training and elocution. You can view my **E-mail Address Removed** and **Web Address Removed**

Teaching Experience:

More than twenty years of teaching English/Drama, Elocution and EFL. I have worked with numerous people from all walks of life and professions - adults and children of all ages. I work holistically with the individual to build confidence and skill. I have helped children improve their grades and exam results. I have reduced all manner of accents - regional and foreign to produce good RP English (BBC English). I have helped people with presentation skills, public speaking, overcoming speech difficulties.
I have published numerous works and CD programs on voice training and accent reduction. These are available at Amazon. I work internationally with clients globally over Skype and have helped companies improve their productivity and communication skills. I am also a six times published novelist. I write under my maiden name of Jo Dean, also can be viewed on Amazon.

Teaching Approach:

I believe that each client should be helped holistically as to his/her own specific needs. This means that if you come to me for English training for an exam but have confidence, accent or communication issues - we will also incorporate these into your program. I am happy to include any of my skills in your package. The hour is for you to use as you wish, so you may have a combination of grammar training and accent reduction or work on English Literature for an exam and also have help with interview skills and CV writing for example. I am an experienced NLP practitioner and use Anthony Robbins methods with my clients. I offer Life Coaching as an additional skill. I can assist you with a novel or creative piece. I can guide you through publishing skills, proof reading any document business or creative - and sales and marketing skills. Anything that comes under English, Drama, Creative Writing, Business English, Voice Training and Accent Reduction and EFL for individual or business use, can be put into your personal program. I do a full assessment on the first session and design a course for the client that is tailored to his/her needs. There a testimonials on my website **Web Address Removed**, if you wish to look at my background.
