Personal Description:

I am a Trainer within the Commercial sector and also a professional, fully qualified, experienced Lecturer of English Language, Literature, Study Skills and Communications… Highly experienced with 20+ years of teaching and tutoring within the Further & Higher Education sector and also in relation to training and development in the Commercial sector.

Training Specialisms:

Effective communication skills -both written and spoken (oral & aural), are essential in our society today. Technology advancements have meant we are now able to communicate at a faster pace but this has come at a cost. People are for example, texting, e-mailing and using the language of these mediums. However, they are then using the same informality in all their communications and as a consequence loosing some good and effective language skills. My specialism is the improvement and awareness of these communication skills -both written and spoken (aural & oral). Students will be given/re-introduced to the skills that include: being able to identify audience/clients needs, setting clear objectives, avoiding ambiguities, writing more objectively, and using the appropriate register of language.

Training Methods:

I am able to design and deliver a bespoke training day, but also work with individuals, (in my home) with specific requirements.
The refrain ' I know what I want to say but don't know how to write it.', is one I have heard numerous times. I definitely can help.

Feedback from Shaun P.
Feedback Rating: 5/5

'Comments: Helen delivered an excellent overview of Professional English and Communication Skills to 16 of our employees. Helen used a good mixture of presentation, group discussion and practical exercise. Feedback from the group was very positive with one participant saying "Helen is a very interesting teacher, and you can tell she has a huge amount of experience in the subject matter. I wish I had a teacher like her!".
I would happily recommend Helen. Thanks.'

From Lisa (Feedback 5/5):
'I have seen a marked improvement in the work generated by one of Helen's students. English was not the students first language and Helen has helped her with writing of business documents and identifying where errors may have occured and thinking through the solution before I have needed to point them out. This has greatly increased the students confidence and quality of work.'

From Sabin (Feedback 5/5):
'I had 2 sessions with Helen to prepare me for an important work presentation. Helen was very engaging, and was able to provide me with the tools and confidence to enable me to deliver my presentation effectively. It was very worthwhile and Helen' s practical tips will be at the forefront of my thoughts in my work. Thank you Helen.'

Students will be given the skills to identify and meet their audiences needs. Training methods can include: formal presentations, group activities, analysing samples (homegrown) of common errors and looking at ways to improve upon them, exercises etc…
