Information about Andy

Do you feel that the way you talk or write lets you down?

I can help you.

Through private tuition I can show you how to improve your communication skills and express yourself with confidence and in your own style. If you are a nervous speaker, find conversation difficult or are conscious of your accent I can work with you to help you find your real voice and speak naturally and genuinely.

If you have problems with written work, spelling, grammar, presentation or style I can give you the skills you need to produce good quality work. I can correct any bad habits into which you have fallen in your written English.

I offer tutoring and coaching in the following subjects:

• Elocution
• Accent Reduction
• Confident Speaking
• Making a Speech
• Essay Report and Dissertation Writing
• Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation
• Media/Communications Studies
• Interview Skills
• Public Speaking
• Journalism/Writing
• Presentation Writing and Delivery
• Creativity Coaching

This list is not exhaustive - please contact me if you are looking for a subject not listed here. Please note that I do not offer an essay-writing service - I can help you write an essay or dissertation but I can`t write it for you.

I normally arrange individual sessions in my clients’ homes or workplace and I am happy to travel anywhere in the North East of England. For this service I charge by the hour: the number of sessions depends on the amount of tuition needed but you can stop any time you like. The first session is free and without obligation.

Availability: Available weekdays, including evenings

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: I was born and educated to secondary level in Essex, but have spent most of my life since then in the North East of England.

I studied English, Latin and Philosophy at Durham University and graduated as a BA with Honours in all three subjects.

I later successfully studied for a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Communications at Leeds Trinity University College. In 2010 I was awarded a Master of Arts Degree in Public Communications from the University of Leeds for my research on how unemployment is portrayed by the media in the North East. I also hold a Certificate in Fundraising Skills from the Northern Council for Further Education, and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

After an earlier career in customer service in the public sector I became a government press and public relations officer in 1999, a job I held for almost 12 years before deciding to leave the corporate world and go it alone.

I worked with local, regional, national and international media and built up a huge network of contacts.

As government press and public relations officer I worked mainly for the Department for Work and Pensions but was involved in projects with other organisations including the Ministry of Defence and Buckingham Palace. I was regularly responsible for briefing government ministers and senior managers and arranging ministerial visits. During that time I was frequently called upon to speak on radio and television and to give presentations to live audiences. I was also trained as a trainer and designed a delivered training and coaching for junior colleagues

My experience has covered all aspects of communications including:

• Media Handling and Dealing with Journalists
• Copywriting
• Press Release Writing
• Marketing
• Campaign Management
• Event Management
• Brand and Reputation Management
• Crisis Management
• Research and Analysis
• Internal Communications
• Interview Techniques
• Public Speaking and Presentation
• Social Media and Online Marketing
• Fundraising
• Voiceover techniques

I am a full member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR).

Since 2012 I have been a freelance trainer for Westminster Explained, delivering Civil Service Learning courses in England and Scotland.

I am also a member of the Senior Common Rooms at the College of St Hild and St Bede and Collingwood College in Durham University, a Mentor to a number of Hild Bede students and former secretary of the alumni association of that college.
I work from my home near Durham City.
