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!

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!”

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.

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.

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. Our lessons will be based on the book Mastering the American Accent by Lisa Mojsin, with other books to supplement as needed. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

Jeanne is an awesome instructor. In a little over a month, I have become more aware of my mispronunciation and learned several nuances with consonants (such as t and the dark l) and vowel articulation.

"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
LINGYI
I have been having French lessons with Isabelle for more than 6 months. I definitely have learned a lot! Isabelle is very patient and flexible about different learning methods. I highly recommend her!

"I have lived in the USA for about 20 years and couldn't recognize the pronunciation mistakes I made on my conversations, all I knew was that conference calls at work were moments of suffering and anxiety for me.
Nicole helped me to understand and correct my mispronunciation. She is an amazing and dedicated teacher with an incredible amount of patience.
After the completion of our classes I received a promotion at work and I attribute it in part to the improvements I made on my speech.
Thanks to Nicole I'm not uneasy any more about conference calls :-)
I highly recommend her!"
