Hunter P.

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

Mohan
Very good and detail oriented teacher. She can pick up the slightest little mistakes in the way you pronounce things and the way you speak and tell you how to correct them on the spot. Now I know how to move my mouth differently to make different sounds for the same word. Have been doing session twice a week for 4 months and my accent is completely gone! I thought it was going to take years. So happy and glad I met Hunter! Easy to work with and very encouraging.
Ilyas
Hunter is a great teacher. She is really good at catching even barely noticeable pronunciation issues. She gives clear instructions on how to fix them. She is very knowledgeable about other countries and cultures which makes it easy for her to understand one’s accent. Thanks to her acting experience, she knows a lot of drills for relaxing the jaw and making your voice sounds more clear and crisp. It’s a pleasure working with Hunter and I am looking forward to continuing our sessions. I would definitely recommend Hunter to anyone who wants to improve their American English pronunciation.
Dennis
Great teacher and acting coach! She knows her stuff and has clearly been in the business a long time with a lot of experience. Really wants you to be the best and to work and book jobs. Patient and supportive but still pushes. Fun to work with too - has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend.

Initially I like to evaluate the student's current comprehension level (regardless of years studied) to better select the appropriate starting point. From there, if there is a specific subject matter or course work/syllabus for a class that needs to be followed, I can tailor lessons to fit those needs. Throughout lessons, I like to bring in elements such as cartoons, newspapers, movie clips, etc. to aid in understanding everyday usage & make learning practical and pertinent to the student.

**30 minute lessons are available for students interested in Conversational Portuguese practice ONLY (for Intermediate/Advanced Only). Please send me a message if you are interested & we can discuss how to arrange through TakeLessons.

About Kenji Luis

I grew up speaking English, Portuguese & Japanese in a multilingual family and from a young age developed a strong affinity & penchant for languages.

Learning sign language with me. You will get the full picture of what sign language is. This will be tough with no voice so you get to experience what deaf struggle with everyday when dealing with hearing people. But also with no voice you get a better chance to learn the language and hold on to it when you do not have your voice to depend on. I am looking to help spread the language and will be patient with yo and hope you are patient with me as I start doing online lessons for the first time
