MASTER SPEAKING: Speak to be heard by learning phonics and effective use of your voice.
If you have an accent that makes it hard for you to be understood or reduces your confidence, what you need is to improve your speaking skills to have good diction, pronunciation and modulation.
Learn how sounds are formed and correct pronunciation. To be effective, you also need to learn rhythm, syllables and word stress. How we say things matters too, so you need the right inflection and tone. This is a technical skill that requires dedication and a specialised coach.
PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS: Stand out and be your best.
No matter what career you are pursuing, you should reach your goals and your language skills should not hold you back. There are skills to learn to make you a more effective speaker and story teller: modulation. Learn how we produce our voice and how to use it effectively.
Make yourself heard and feel confident when you speak to a crowd, at work or for an interview.
You might be full of ideas, but now it’s time to express them!

“Sandra is helping me to prepare IELTS exam, the speaking task. I wasn’t confident about how to approach the exam. I have tried another teacher but I just received general feedback. Sandra gave me confidence. She gave me tips and structures to follow each part of IELTS speaking. She is very knowledgeable and kind. The lessons are engaging and useful. I feel lucky to have found her as an English teacher. I cannot wait for the next lesson.”
