About Sonya

BIOGRAPHY

I’ve always loved language and speech sounds. After my first degree in English Language, I spent 3 years teaching Business English in France, where I developed my skills in phonetics and pronunciation teaching.

The next step was MA Voice Studies at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama in 2005. That was an intense, life-changing year full of of vocal anatomy and physiology, pedagogy, phonetics, and personal vocal practice!

After the MA, I spent many years teaching voice, accents and phonetics in drama schools and other organisations in London. I now run my own independent practice and over the years have helped thousands of people develop their pronunciation and speaking skills both face to face and online. 

My clients are everyone: financial services professionals, entrepreneurs, insurance, sales and PR executives, lawyers, medical professionals, musicians…and many more! I speak French, so I know how it is to be in the learner’s shoes when it comes to pronunciation. 

Clients have described my coaching style as: thorough, patient, enjoyable and most importantly, effective. I’m a ‘geek’ for all things phonetics and voice related and I hope to share that joy with you!
