Private Accent Reduction Teacher

I am a professional opera singer and have studied diction and languages for 12 years. I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reduce your accent and speak English like it’s your first language! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others!

About Alexandra

I am a professional opera singer with a love for languages. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Voice, and went on to study opera performance at the Opera Institute at Boston Universities. Since then, I've been working as a singer for over 10 years!

I have to sing in a lot of languages for my job, and I'm here to give you some of the tools I use when mastering pronunciation for your own accent reduction pursuits.

I am also a writer and lover of the English language (my mother is a lifelong English teacher), and love sharing this tough-to-master language with others.

A lot of the skills I have as a singer are so helpful for learning how to pronounce languages correctly AND how to support your voice to keep it healthy.

I can also help you in your own singing development and improvement! I can teach you

basic and advanced technical exercises to increase your breath support, tone quality, and overall musicianship.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

After speaking to multiple tutoring companies, we discovered Matthew. Matthew was very professional and made my son feel comfortable. They had a total of 5 tutoring sessions covering Math, English, Science and Reading. My son took the ACT after his tutoring sessions and scored a 23. We were very pleased with the progress our son made by going from an ACT score of 19 to 23 after only 5 sessions with Matthew. I would highly recommend Matthew J. Horwich to anyone needing tutoring.

Matthew explained his approach to coaching and the plan so we were able to make an educated choice on the best tutor for our son. Matthew was responsive, organized and worked very well with our son. He communicated directly with our son and cc:ed me so that I was aware of the plan and f/u. His scores did improve on the SAT and we were pleased with the investment.

Gaetano
Matt has been awesome for my student. His math skills have improved greatly, and his  writing has come from illegible to what can now be described as neat and readable.  Matt has been very patient and deliberate with our son and has taken the time to really  explain things to Jake in a way he can understand. We would recommend this tutor to  any parent looking for a tutor for their grammar school student! Matt is also reliable and  prompt and showed up when expected which was helpful with our very busy schedules.

Private Accent Reduction Teacher

10-Hour Course will prepare you to keep improving on your own and will improve at least 3-4 critical sounds/vowels/consonants that you struggle with the most. Liaisons and the schwa sound - most people have no idea about these, but you will learn what they are and how to sound more like a native speaker if you use them both correctly.

Suggested: At least 30 hours for long term accountability and change.

There is more time available than what is shown on my calendar. Please email me to discuss your preferred time. I call you before the lesson and plan your specific goals. I create a tailored course specifically for your needs, whether you're from Russia, Japan, Latin America, Italy, France or another country. I have 12 years' experience, and I am an expert.

I use a specific curriculum to help you understand the phonetics and vowel sounds in the English language. There are so many different vowel pairs and learners of English must understand them all. Let me help you ...

About Micah

I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and reach your goals just as I have.

I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve.

I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United

States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish.

This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.

I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.

I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.

This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that.

I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies.

How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more.

One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.

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!

Gabriel is an amazing coach. He takes the time to explain in detail how to discover a character in an easy to understand way. As a beginner he has really helped me learn to break down a script and understand what is going on. He teaches you how to set yourself apart from the crowd in an audition. I highly recommend Gabriel to anyone seeking to better their craft or begin acting!

Gabriel developed a proprietary method of accent reduction that makes it easy to focus on the areas that need change or improvement. The method, combined with Gabriel’s passion for teaching, make the classes dynamic and productive. He quickly identified my problematic areas, and patiently worked with me on changes I needed to make to the way I pronounce certain sounds.

He also provides ample resources and direction for exercises in between the lessons to make the progress faster. I highly recommend Gabriel for accent reduction classes.

I have experience tutoring Filipinos and Koreans in developing English fluency and accent reduction. My own practice in learning accents for acting, then in real life practice while living abroad, has equipped me to help others develop their own skill.

About Carla

I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y

ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

Private Accent Reduction Teacher

Hoping to learn to reduce your accent and communicate more clearly and efficiently? I would love to help. I am a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and have 9 years of experience.

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Lessons will focus mostly on pronunciation and other areas of speech production. Learning the English language will not be the focus, but I will help to answer any vocabulary and grammar questions you have.

All lessons are individualized and tailored for each student's goals and preferences. The overarching goal of my accent modification lessons is for your speech to be better understood but not to completely eliminate your accent, as it is part of who you are.

I hope that I can help you reach your goals as quickly as possible. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

About Angie

I am a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and have been practicing for over 8 years. I have a Master's degree in speech-language pathology, and my minor in college was American Sign Language (ASL).

I have spent much of the last 6 years doing online speech and language therapy with cyber school students. This experience has helped to develop my skills and familiarity with tele-therapy, which can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy.

In graduate school, I provided accent modification therapy with non-native English speakers who worked as graduate assistants and teachers. I also have substantial experience working with adults of all ages on speech and language skills (among others) in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient clinics.

Practice makes progress. I will help to provide you with the skills you need to

improve your English pronunciation, rhythm and intonation, and overall speaking skills for increased clarity in conversations and work settings. I will also give you activities to do on your own. Your commitment to your goals during and outside of lessons will contribute in a large part to how much progress you make and how quickly you make it.

Just a little more about me: I enjoy traveling, reading, yoga, movies, animals, and being with my family. I also enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures and languages.

If you are interested in working with me, please send me a message. I hope to meet you soon!

Angie is a great teacher. She is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. She will customize the lesson to fit your needs, and often times, even go the extra mile of researching and providing any extra contents that can help you. She will pick up even the minute details and help you change. Of course change is not easy, but knowing is truly half the battle. Thank you Angie for making the class so enjoyable!
