***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 ...

I have taken two lessons so far and I can notice the difference already. Erol's method of using playback software and systemic approach is great. He is very knowledgeable and a keen ear.

How you communicate is especially important in business, professional and social situations.

Everyone can speak English with clear and proper pronunciation, I can give you the tips and tricks to assist you in excelling. My background with singing required that I learn the 'IPA' or International Phonetic Alphabet. This training has assisted me in learning ways in which to decipher the spoken word (as well as singing in various languages). My background in teaching English has also prepared me to understand various idioms, cliches', jargon, slang and euphemisms. My students in accent reduction will find that I have a wellspring of information and methods for reducing an accent. In working together via our private lessons, you will have practice becoming more fluent in your conversational speech. You will learn how to

I work with foreign-born professionals to help them overcome English language challenges, speak clear, understandable English and reach their full potential in an American workplace. I can help you improve your pronunciation, develop a more American accent, fine-tune your grammar, improve word choice, take into account cultural considerations and more.

Tell me what you need, and I'll create it for you. Here are some examples of specific things we can work on too: phone skills, giving presentations, interview prep, interacting with patients, selling to potential clients. And there is so much more.

When you work with me, I create a program specifically for your needs, so you can reach your personal and professional goals. Since your lessons are designed just for you, the time you spend practicing is efficient and you make progress toward your goals quickly.

Sunil K.
Great teacher with a vibrant attitude. She is pleasant and fun to take to. I signed up for her class for accent reduction training (advanced). She quickly identified where I need speech modification and focused on those areas. She has online videos of her own which helped me. Also, she provided phone apps which are immensely useful for accent reduction.
Vera
Before I took my classes with Nicole, I was unable to pronounce certain words because of my accent. This affected my progress at work. After 12 classes and a lot of practice, I was much more confidant with my speech and pronunciation. Nicole was very professional and knew exactly how to help me improve. She was very flexible when it came to scheduling our online classes. I would defiantly recommend Nicole, she is a great person and an even better teacher.
Pilar
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!

"So far, I've had just one lesson with Gabriel, and my first impression is very positive. He has come up with a very specific and actionable method for making the student really understand the sounds (s)he should be aiming for. I am quite optimistic about this approach and feel it may be a good solution for me.

On the personal level, Garbriel is very personable and extremely pleasant ot work with,"

"I've been working with Gabriel on reducing my accent, and my progress over the past month has been terrific! Gabriel's unique methodology is straightforward and effective. He's also very encouraging, patient, and upbeat. Thanks to Gabriel, I was able to understand (and *hear*) the mistakes I've been making for many years (I've been in the US for over 10 years) and to finally get to fixing them. My friends and colleagues have been asking fewer "What did you say?" questions and as I went to networking functions, I was not asked where I was from, which was a sign to me that people did not hear my Eastern European accent. I'll continue working with Gabriel until I sound like those broadcast TV reporters :-), and I am sure that under his guidance I'll be able to do that. Thanks, Gabriel, you are awesome!"
