***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 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.

Errol G. is very patient and accommodating when working with younger students.

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

Hunter is ALWAYS fabulous!!! I always feel so much more grounded in a scene after working with her. My go-to audition coach every time!

Only had a couple of sessions but great so far. Hunter is really fast and sessions are fun! Great to study with a coach that has actually done live improv. Just trying to get my skills up to go out and try it with a group.

If English is not your first language, or if you have a regional accent that you feel is keeping you from reaching your goals, then Accent Reduction coaching may be for you.
I can help you to soften your accent to blend in to your community of choice more easily by providing exercises, practice techniques, and memory mnemonics that will help you find the voice you want to use.

Sara is a great teacher, 5 stars plus many pluses. She can point out my problems quickly and let me practice efficiently. My accent got improved, and I recommend her to my friends who need the same help. Thank you Sara, you are my best friend too. Love you, sherry

Take lessons recommended me Sara Ann Butler because she is a great teacher. I’ve enjoyed taking lessons with her, and I am happy she has high expectations and material that was useful. I wanted to improve my speaking voice, and she was able to point out the places I could make improvements and gave me methods to improve.
To disagree with a previous review, i’ve never heard her use any anti-racist or political views. She doesn’t expect me to behave like her, and when she teaches she uses “I” and “I” is the student.
I am happy that I took vocal training from her.
Brandi
At this age , she is very hot headed. Her ego is longer than a mile. She is racist, doesnt like African-American and Asian students accent. She was making fun of ppls accents. In the begining i thought she may be trying to make a point but no. Jes thats all anger. The first, i m paying you money for this class. So just teach what you supposed to teach not your racist and politcal views. And after a few classes, I said i dont feel comfortable talking about the race religious views and the next thing she did was cancelled all my lessons without even letting me know. Now i have to restart from the begining from a new teacher and it takes a while for a new teacher to understand your accents problems. She wants her students behave like her age oh please, come on, if the student is young in her 20s or 30s you dont act or behave like her or him. They just started their lives but your almost have lived your life. She should not teach here.

I can't even believe when I see how far I've gotten. I remember my first session when I was shy because I had a thick Russian accent and the first thing I complained with Ty was that the first everyone asked when they talked to me was "Where are you from?" But I trusted him and I did all the crazy exercises and everything he asked me. Well, it worked! And all I can say is that I couldn't be happier with my result!

When Ty told me I didn’t need to learn grammar to become fluent I laughed out loud, literally. But he showed me a whole new world where English is actually fun and easy! I became fluent in no time! Ty is incredible!! Thank you buddy!!

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 than is shown on calendar. Just contact me!

"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."
