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.

About Carla
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

Carla is very personable and knowledgeable of ASL. We had a very good first session and I got a lot of good tips on learning and using ASL. I look forward to our next lesson and becoming conversant in this new language.

I have enjoyed my lessons with Carla. What makes her a great teacher is her passion for what she does and her caring attitude. She goes the extra mile to make her students feel comfortable, successful, and remain motivated through their training. She is always motivating me to become the best version of myself- something I value immensely. She consistently helps me work around my concerns and find innovative solutions to help me excel. I am so glad I decided to work with Carla, I highly recommend her if you are looking for a compassionate and kind teacher, one who will push you in a positive way to learn and grow!

It's pretty likely I will ask you to read to me or tell me about your day. I enjoy listening to other dialects, you will get some practice reading and speaking English (just what you need to be understood). And I'm certainly glad to help out with of the annoying snafus this task called English presents. My accent is native neutral from conservative Minnesota. I could do accents in Italian, Norsk, or French too if it helps, but my specialty is English without much of an accent. Tell me all about your day.

About Jill
Join me for the creative unleashing of highly effective processes of learning success. Your instruction will include: A. creative problem solving (unleashing the genius within) B. formation; a foundation is planned (architect) C. building; drafts are written (carpenter) D. finishing; the writing is polished (finishing editor/proofreader) I've used these guiding principles countless times in my life. Just as a jeweler would not be able to sell rough stones, Jill would not have been able to make anything in the publishing field without employing these principles. Her college papers would have been fair to dull rocks. She can say this as the daughter of a bricklayer who was the son of a stonemason in a familial line that dates back to middle 1600. So, of course, I did learn about laying bricks and throwing rocks too. Not very many structures
stand the test of time when we throw rocks (rough drafts). Only with this brick, mortar, and finish will the building stand. But enough about my lineage. My capstone point is that the finishing point of any building or writing should communicate a great product. In creating this description I had the above principles in mind. My college papers, business papers, copywriting, web designs, resumes, and even informal conversations are inclusive of this process of which proofreading is a vital component. Why? Well, I might want to throw a rock at myself if I assume myself incapable of accomplishing as much. And as the daughter of a bricklayer, I think I know about bricks and buildings, and mortar, and capstones such as proofreading. So now at my concluding paragraph contains the capstone of what is called proofreading. Proofreading, as my gem of a teacher told me, is constructed with similar principles. It contains a precise methodology which assures great communication. I would like to involve you in this structure. Please step in the door so I may explain the steps involved in editing and proofreading as art, the elements and principles of Art and English as your toolkit, and design as your structured building of success!

Want to sound more like a native English speaker?? I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

Where do you want to
be in a few short months? Do you want more successful communication, to feel more confident conducting a business meeting, lecturing to students, speaking to customers, or communicating with patients, to be able to joyfully converse without worrying if your accent is detracting from your message... and to save time by speeding up your results through personal, individualized instruction with a program tailored specifically to your individual speech patterns?

Here's your path:
1) You'll begin by taking an accent assessment, so I can listen to your speech/accent and determine what sounds are different than the sounds in American English and structure an individualized program for you.
2) We then work together for 13 weeks, for one hour sessions per week. All sessions will include practice work so that you can be well on your way to achieving an accent that is closer to American English.
3) Your practice work is all online for you - you'll have an online practice portal that you keep for the rest of your life to return back to and refresh as much as you'd like.

I am passionate about accent reduction because I want my clients to be able to succeed in the paths they choose in life, uncover their most promising futures, and discover what their lives can be.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Jacqui is an excellent speech therapist and instructor. I learned so much from each lesson she gave me. I can't thank her enough for the confidence she gave me in my speech, as public speaking is critical for my new career. Not to mention, her outgoing personality made the experience fun. Thank you!

I was worried about using an online service for accent reduction but with my schedule I didn’t have another option. After working with Jacqui, I only wish I acted sooner. Jacqui was flexible with her availability and the results speak for themselves. My clients and I can now focus on the task at hand. No more “What? Could you repeat that?”!

Are you speaking English but not being understood? Accent reduction will make all your hard work and English study worth it. I have 10 years teaching experience in ESL and a BA degree in American English Speech Language Pathology. I provide coaching in all areas of American English, including vowels, consonants, syllable/word stress, sentence intonation and tips for sounding fluent. I also offer coaching for specific pronunciation errors from many different languages. Send me a message and we'll create a personalized plan together.

About Rachel
Teaching English is my passion and accent reduction is the best part. I meet many students that work very hard to perfect their English only to be not understood when the time comes to communicate. I love being the one to give them the tools they need to deliver that perfect sentence during a job interview or final presentation.

I've traveled widely and studied Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. I know the joys and struggles of learning a second (or third) language, and use that experience to help my students. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI with a BA in Speech and Language Pathology (SLP) and also a BA in Chinese Language and Culture. As a BA SLP, I am qualified to coach accent reduction. I believe there is nothing wrong with having an accent, but I also believe you should be able to turn it on or off whenever you w
ant -- fluently. Just like an actor/actress learns an accent for a film, you can learn American English for your professional life.

I have four kids, all girls. I love to write fiction and poetry in my spare time and I also volunteer twice a week to teach English. I also love gardening, but I am not terribly good at it! People who meet me say, "Wow you have your hands full!" and I love to answer, "Yes! Full of good things!"
