I don’t teach accent reduction—I teach North American Dialect Acquisition. It’s not the same thing.

“Accent Reduction” feels demeaning to students I’ve worked with. Accents are simply speaking someone else’s language by the rules of your own (Trevor Noah). I don’t want to rob you of your own language; I want to help you master the rules of mine.

I share tools and techniques for speaking with the grammar, tone, and character of a locally-born US citizen with an emphasis on midwest and northwest dialects (typically regarded a "clean" or "flat" North American sound, like a news broadcaster). We approach it analytically, physically, and emotionally. Language is a full-body experience and I seek to honor your culture while adding a new skill to your collection.

I developed and applied this novel approach with two different cohorts of adult students at Tacoma Community College’s Internationally Educated Nurses program. It helped them pass their TOEFL exams and earn jobs in the United ...

I love Fawn so much - shes unlike any other teacher I’ve ever had. She’s incredibly relatable, honest, kind, sweet, funny and authentic. I love her compassion so much and her energy is beautiful. I love her very much, and I love our practice and I love that I found her and she’s apart of my life
Cynthia
Fawn is not only the best vocal coach that I’ve had, she is helping me immensely be able to release fears and traumas that prevent me from being able to sing properly. She is extremely intelligent when it comes to finding what is keeping you from being able to sing to the best of your ability. She is truly amazing, so glad that I was paired with fawn
Tanya E.
Truly an innovative and knowledgeable coach! She takes a genuine interest in your lesson, works with your goals for improvement and offers ideas that you may not even relate to singing! Her wonderful personality is an added bonus; absolutely recommend!!

"Micah is the best teacher I have ever had !
I am French and my accent was so strong that sometimes I was not being understood correctly. We discussed first by email and she was so nice with a big teaching experience that I was sure to make the right choice.
We can tell she is a real teacher, she has great skills and she is really good at explaining !
I highly recommend her."

"Before starting working with Nicole I felt that my English pronunciation needed some polish to sound more clear. The private sessions gave me all the tools I needed to build confidence to improve my public speaking skills.

If you recently move to the US, I recommend taking some time to work on your pronunciation skills with Nicole, especially if you are job hunting. She helped me prep for my interviews and it made a positive impact on my performance.

Thank you so much, Nicole!"

I have a desire to do voice over, commercial and to enhance my public speaking. She is teaching me how to breathe, how to project and how to deepen my voice.

"Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!"
