Accent Reduction/Softening, Public Speaking, Presentation

I have been acting professionally for 15 years, most recently at the National Theatre, RSC, Broadway and BBC.

I am particularly interested in accent reduction with business people, aiding professionals to communicate confidently, whilst retaining their personal identity. Accent reduction work allows the individual to be better understood, express themselves with ease and truly represent their language fluency without accent as a barrier. These lessons will guide you through the 45 sounds of English, articulation, intonation and stress, confident vocal production, body language and presentation skills.

I also am keen to help young students improve self esteem, presentation and interview skills and performance ability. I have experience assisting young actors with their applications to drama school.

For a year I worked at a Montessori Nursery teaching cookery, art and music to toddlers. I am an experienced role play actor, a seasoned PA and receptionist and have my own vintage jewellery business!

I had the chance to take several one-to-one elocution classes with Olivia, with a major improvement in my accent and speech as a result. I find Olivia extremely professional, thorough, and passionate about helping her students reach their full potential.
