I help people with pronunciation and accents, both online and in person. My clients include actors and professionals of all kinds, with a wide range of mother tongues.
I also give workshops and short courses internationally; 2018 venues included Argentina, Germany, Japan, Korea and Russia.
Additionally, I’m Director of UCL’s famous annual Summer Course in English Phonetics, which celebrates its 100th birthday this year!
Excellent! Geoff is a gifted and dedicated teacher. Thank you UCL for bringing him to us!
I have just passed my English retour exam, and the examiners commented on the improvement in my accent.
Truly broadened my horizon in British English Pronunciation.
Geoff has a fantastic skill to communicate complex linguistic information in a practical and understandable way. I could not recommend Geoff’s coaching more.
You managed to be both highly critical and wonderfully warm, motivating and entertaining. Your energy is contagious. Rarely have I learnt so much without noticing the effort.
Very useful, practical, inspiring!
I have changed my behaviour towards my speaking quite dramatically… now I am able to identify in other speakers those sounds that I need to work on.
I recently met a former student of yours. I was wholly impressed by how authentically British her accent sounded, and she told me that you taught her.
Geoff’s knowledge and enthusiasm are infectious… with Geoff’s help I landed a television role.
Best seminar ever! Perfect!
A truly rewarding experience. I enjoyed it to the full.
