I learned how to pronounce words correctly and reduce my accent which was important to me in my work in technology. This has helped me come out of my shell and be more confident talking with others especially in my job." KH, Edmonton, Canada "Zelda has helped me reduce my accent and speak more clearly. As a Chinese born teacher in the arts world I was finding it difficult to speak English and be understood. People would always ask me to repeat myself and tell me they couldn't understand me. Zelda's lessons were so helpful, and I saw a huge difference not only in my speaking voice but also in my singing voice and feel so much more confident speaking with others. Plus she is an amazing person to work with and a fun teacher." NC, NYC USA.

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. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. 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!

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 reach your communication goals in speaking American English! 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. I like to think of this more as "accent acquisition" as opposed to "accent reduction" - we all have an accent! My goal is to help you speak English clearly and comfortably so that you can communicate with others with confidence.
