Private Accent Reduction Teacher

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.

Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career.

You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

***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 ...

Erol has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
Erol utilizes an audio software to analyze and determine what needs to be worked. This eliminates a lot of human hearing errors and gives me a visual on what’s correct vs incorrect. Highly recommended for you to try his method out.
Rhonda
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.

Great experience!

Voice lessons are tough. This isn't like a golf swing where someone can show you physically what to do or reach out and position your elbows where they need to be.

This all has to be articulated by a teacher, and is has to be articulated to someone (YOU) who doesn't even know what parts you're trying to move around.

It takes a great teacher. Eulis is a GREAT teacher. He gave me physical descriptions, character descriptions, accent descriptions, … everything I needed to position everything where it needed to be, even when I didn't always know where it was.

A lot of progress and a lot of fun. Thank you, Eulis.

Eulis was great and provided plenty of insight. Nice guy and he showed me interesting techniques

Eulis has been phenomenal to work with. He's patient, and has worked really hard to understand distinct qualities of my voice and how to improve them.

This course is about how to learn to say the 44 sounds in English (including the 20 vowel international phonics sounds) quickly and to reduce your accent audibly. A suggested twice a week course. We will cover the most important phonics/sounds that my clients - from India, China, France, Russia, Brazil, Spain and so on - have the most problems with doing business in the US/Silicon Valley. You don't have to go through all the lectures, just pick the areas you feel you still have to work on and practice the words diligently.

You will see the slides that go with the video and most of the time, I also uploaded additional practice materials. If you work on your English pronunciation consistently, you will see results really fast.

Master the American Accent book will be provided (228 pages).

Who this course is for:

You need to know some spoken American English already to benefit from the course. But, since this is an American English speaking course with lots of examples, if ...

Pronunciation Is Your ”Carte de Visite”
”Speak Your Mind in Confidence”
American Accent is interesting and hard at the same time because you have to change your articulation completely! I can help you understand and conquer the American pronunciation in detail by training you with the phonetic exercises I have designed for you, and correct apparent mistakes during our sessions.

What does the American Accent Program look like?

I have designed this program for short-term learning: it's a small course which consists of 11 sessions, and it helps you learn the pronunciation efficaciously in the shortest possible time. The phonetic exercises have been designed to identify the key to the sound you are learning for each session. Sentence Exercise Practices help you follow the English rhythm and intonation aspects very clearly and easily. Audio recordings help you go beyond with preparing for the next class.

First of all I would like to thank Alexander for all experinece and knoweldge I have gaind. All the time people ask me "Your pronunciation is perfect and you speak fluently, where did you get it?" and my reply always is the same "If only you knew my tecaher of English you would probably speak as well as me" So Alexander's approach of teaching is definitely thoughtful and results are not long in coming. I really recomed to all my acquitances to begin this amazing English lnguage trip with Alex. The level of his knowelede is extrelemly high without any doubt.

He understood my weakness, the points to ameliorate very quick: his technical of learning is very efficient (I'm only at my 3rd session). Since he has an European background as well he knows exactly the difference of pronunciation between French (that I am) and US pronunciation.
He is also very devoted and patient, I recommend him no matter your background !"

"Carla taught me how to communicate clearly and professionally. She is a great teacher and communicator. Her pedagogy is centered around progress and results without leaving empathy, mutual respect and encouragement.

As a teacher, I became Carla's client to reduce my accent and communicate better with my American students. Soon after, I saw great results both in my social interactions with people in English and in my teaching quality.

I would recommend Carla to anyone who wants to improve the way they communicate and wants to benefit from effective but kind and empathetic instruction."
