***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 ...

2nd meeting much better. I have a lot to learn. Thanks for your patience. The process is much clearer now

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

Ty is awesome. Only had 2 lessons with him so far and I’m making a lot of improvements already!
Lana V.
I can't even believe when I see how far I've gotten. I remember my first session when I was shy because I had a thick Russian accent and the first thing I complained with Ty was that the first everyone asked when they talked to me was "Where are you from?" But I trusted him and I did all the crazy exercises and everything he asked me. Well, it worked! And all I can say is that I couldn't be happier with my result!
Arne
When Ty told me I didn’t need to learn grammar to become fluent I laughed out loud, literally. But he showed me a whole new world where English is actually fun and easy! I became fluent in no time! Ty is incredible!! Thank you buddy!!

I have experience tutoring Filipinos and Koreans in developing English fluency and accent reduction. My own practice in learning accents for acting, then in real life practice while living abroad, has equipped me to help others develop their own skill.

Hello and welcome!
In accent reduction lessons we will work on correct pronunciation in English. Depending on the student's specific needs, we will focus on vowels, consonants, and proper syllabic accenting (where the stress occurs in a particular word). Learning a new language at times can be quite frustrating, but my methods center around practical, real-world use of the English language to maximize our lessons.

This course is about how to learn to say the 44 sounds in English (including the 20 vowel international phonics sounds) quickly and to reduce your accent audibly. A suggested twice a week course. We will cover the most important phonics/sounds that my clients - from India, China, France, Russia, Brazil, Spain and so on - have the most problems with doing business in the US/Silicon Valley. You don't have to go through all the lectures, just pick the areas you feel you still have to work on and practice the words diligently.

You will see the slides that go with the video and most of the time, I also uploaded additional practice materials. If you work on your English pronunciation consistently, you will see results really fast.

Master the American Accent book will be provided (228 pages).

Who this course is for:

You need to know some spoken American English already to benefit from the course. But, since this is an American English speaking course with lots of examples, if ...

"This is my first time ever taking accent reduction class. I’ve completed three lessons so far and it has been very interesting. It has been useful to learn about the sounds of the language. My tutor Alex explains it well, provides me with exercises that I can do on my own, as well as practices with me during the class. It is nice to hear other people already noticing my better articulation, unbelievable. Thank you Alex, looking forward to completing the course with you!"

"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."

Has me cracking up every session!) Hunter makes you feel completely comfortable but knows how to get serious and touch and get stuff done. I’m really starting to notice a difference in the way I talk and the way I sound. She gives you very simple, very effective exercises for practice in between sessions an good memory hooks. Very organized and an excellent understanding of the work and accents in general. Fantastic teacher. I’m sure you’ll love her."
