***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 has a very systematic approach in teaching accent reduction. Since taking lessons with Erol, I've started to become more aware of my speech and noticed an improvement in my pronunciation. Highly recommended!
June
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.

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!”

I was an ESL student in Tara's class in 2018. In this class, I was still beginning to become familiar with the English language and she was certainly a key teacher in this process.

Classes were always very productive, balancing theory and practice. She provided activities in groups, individual, games, videos, readings and discussions, homework assignments and even extra material for that student who wanted to go beyond.

She was very organized, every class had with her planning wrote down in a notebook and always shared with us what the class would be like. She had very interesting strategies, such as the daily way of teaching and resuming new vocabulary. Most of the time, in the next class she already had the activities or tests corrected, the recovery of our mistakes always asked if we had doubts.

He is a person who was always smiling and encouraging the students, even some who are tired of a full day's work.

And she has a differential that is helping students beyond the classroom, in my case, I shared my difficulty speaking in English and she became available for conversation classes in the summer holidays. Of course, that helped me a lot!

Finally, Tara was essential in my walk in learning a new language. She is fantastic!

I have observed many of Tara’s lessons. They are always very fun and engaging. She is sure to match student interests and needs with lesson topics. She also does a good job of giving feedback to students to help them improve. Highly recommended!

"Hunter was recommended to me by a colleague of mine. I’m so glad I took the advice!After an hour not only had she identified my key trouble spots, but gave me specific exercises to practice for faster improvement. She explained to me how my accent was learned and the easiest way to change it. I know it’s going to take some time and practice, but I”m really looking forward to the next session!"

"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!"

He explains very well what you do and what you should do instead.
It's hands-on from minute 1, and I learn so much from the first class.

Adam is highly intuitive, sharp and doesn't miss a beat!
He creates a fun environment to tackle a challenging subject.
I finally find the right person after trying a few teachers.
I highly recommend him."
