Paul schedules sessions with clients every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. U.S. Central Time (UTC – 6 hours), including weekends for those without weekday availability. He can usually squeeze in a last-minute request, but the farther ahead you schedule, the better the chance of getting the day and time that suits you. Cancellation policy: Canceling or rescheduling a session within 24 hours of the session, or your unavailability at the time of the scheduled session, will incur a 50% late-cancellation fee.


What can you expect from a session with Paul?

Here’s an example:  Watch and listen (by playing the video below) as Paul puts the final polish on the British accents of the cast of I Do, I Do, I Do, by Robin Hawdon, at the Barter Theatre, one of America’s longest-established professional theatres.  The company had been working with Paul’s Standard British English dialect instruction from Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen. The production was directed in 2014 by Eugene Wolf and starred Resident Acting Company members Tricia J Matthews as Ann, Holly Williams as Diana, Abbey Elliott as Holly, Andrew Livingston as Tom, Justin Lewis as Geoff, and Sean Campos at Jamie. Stage Manager, John ‘JP’ Pollard was the stage manager, and Stephen Vess, rehearsal assistant stage manager.

Your Zoom/phone session with Paul will also include a free personal page JUST FOR YOU. That page will contain all your video/audio sessions with Paul in one easy-to-access location, complete with a description of that file, along with the date and running time. It’s also password-protected, so only you will be able to access it. And it’s yours to access for twelve months following the session. (Of course, you can also download the video/audio files to keep forever. In addition,  you are welcome to record the session yourself. ) Click here to see what your page will look like.
