Private Accent Reduction Teacher

This is one of my absolute passions! Did you know that “regionally specific dialects” change approximately every 20 miles? Part of my vocal training included a deep dive into dialects or accents, how to master them and how to lose them. This is so much easier than you may think! It’s all about small modifications, mostly in the mouth and jaw that can completely change the way you sound.

How many sessions you need really depends on how much work you’re willing to put in between sessions. I can give you the keys, but this is really a case of practice makes perfect. If you find you’re not booking because of your accent, let me help you master “LA speak” otherwise known as the “non-regionally specific U.S. dialect”.

Hint: I’ve lived in 8 different countries so far and in the last month I’ve had 2 of my long time acting coaches say “Wow… I would have never known you weren’t from LA!”

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

I’m so glad Hunter is still working through this! Writing this as we are all in quarantine / lockdown re: covid-19. This really has been the perfect time to do online lessons. Hunter is so positive and cheerful and, in addition to being an excellent teacher, she really brightens my mood! It’s so nice to have the break during the day or week just to see someone else’s face AND we’re actually getting a LOT done. She is so meticulous and organized in her lesson planning and always gives me the perfect practice work / homework for between lessons. I’m originally from Russia and have been here 10 years but still have a heavy accent so time to get rid of it - and we’re making progress already! It’s only been a couple of months, and people can already hear a difference. So glad I decided to do this and so glad I found Hunter. You really should give her a try!
Michael
Very precise attention to detail. Goal-oriented and motivated. Positive and encouraging. What else can I say? Everything you hope for in a teacher. Couldn’t be happier with my lesson!
Kaito
Hunter is an incredible teacher! She is so fun and down-to-earth and encouraging. It really makes the learning process easier and I always look forward to our sessions because I know I'm going to learn a lot and it’s going to be enjoyable. She has a lot of knowledge about accents and dialects and different cultures and can pick out what your specific issues are fast! So glad I chose her as my coach!

***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

Favorably and extensively reviewed and proven to be effective by students, the accent-reduction and/or speech synthesis program developed from dissertation research using multi-media methods. I have taught this subject for over eight years to public and private causes, as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis is an ecological approximation of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates.
The goal is to develop a comprehensive, systematic voice/accent profile based on lesson/MP3 recordings using digital audio monitoring software. Students obtain a repository of audio files during each lesson to be used for actively evaluating individual expression while waiting in line, traffic, and during breaks. Also, a crash course option exists based more on broad familiarization than intensive ...

I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Erol calmly and clearly answered all my Publisher questions. He also was kind enough to give me "extra" information about my computer system and how I might upgrade it. Erol is a valuable resource (and person :) ) and I will be using him again in the future.

Alex is the best accent reduction/English teacher I've ever met.

I have tried to find private English tutors at least five times for over the last ten years. The previous experiences weren't great. All the previous teachers tried to teach me ways to pronounce phonemes and syllables, such as sit vs. seat. I didn't get a lot from those tutoring and none of those lasted more than one or two months.

I have been tutored by Alex for more than six months and expect to stick with her as a teacher for long time. I was a little doubtful during the first class when she customerized my need by letting me read a paragraph from a novel. It turned out to be the right way for me to train my English accent, as the right accent is not only about correctly pronounce each phoneme, it is actually for the purpose of conveying the meaning and emotion to listeners.

Alex is very well prepared for each lesson. She sent me all kinds of materials for me to reduce accent. Some are various formats of reading materils; others are details about how to form mouth/tongue positions for different vowels/consanants.

She has golden ears and can find out what is missing after I read a paragraph to her and then can focus on the area that I need improvement on.

It's been a great experience to study with Alex. I recommend her to everyone who need accent reduction.

My lesson went great! Alexandra understood the concept that she should adapt to me. She provides excellent, clear answers and offered additional helpful information with the whole process of learning. I'm thrilled that she customizes my needs accordingly.
Also she has a great personality.

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

His technique is very practical and based on principles of how singing is taught. It has been very effective for me. It also helps that he is a very friendly and nice person in addition to being an inspiring actor, singer and performer."

"After 5 hours working on accent reduction with Erol, I decided to purchase another 15-hour package and planning to study with him in the long run. Erol develops his own syllabus, analyzing my pronunciation with software, which helps a lot in visualizing what needs to improve. All lessons are recorded and can be downloaded for later review. He is quite flexible when I requested late night sessions. He is punctual and caring."
