Private Accent Reduction Teacher

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.

Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career.

You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

I have been singing in Choirs and Bands for a number of years and learned more about my voice and singing properly in a 45 minute session with Eric than I have in all my years of performing. I now understand why I have been struggling to sing in my upper register and Eric has put together a personalized program to help me develop my voice and gain back my vocal range. Eric has a great sense of humor and made the session very enjoyable as well as informative. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend Eric as an instructor.

Alex is the best accent reduction/English teacher I've ever met.

I have tried to find private English tutors at least five times for over the last ten years. The previous experiences weren't great. All the previous teachers tried to teach me ways to pronounce phonemes and syllables, such as sit vs. seat. I didn't get a lot from those tutoring and none of those lasted more than one or two months.

I have been tutored by Alex for more than six months and expect to stick with her as a teacher for long time. I was a little doubtful during the first class when she customerized my need by letting me read a paragraph from a novel. It turned out to be the right way for me to train my English accent, as the right accent is not only about correctly pronounce each phoneme, it is actually for the purpose of conveying the meaning and emotion to listeners.

Alex is very well prepared for each lesson. She sent me all kinds of materials for me to reduce accent. Some are various formats of reading materils; others are details about how to form mouth/tongue positions for different vowels/consanants.

She has golden ears and can find out what is missing after I read a paragraph to her and then can focus on the area that I need improvement on.

It's been a great experience to study with Alex. I recommend her to everyone who need accent reduction.

My lesson went great! Alexandra understood the concept that she should adapt to me. She provides excellent, clear answers and offered additional helpful information with the whole process of learning. I'm thrilled that she customizes my needs accordingly.
Also she has a great personality.

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

Online Accent Reduction Teacher

This course is about how to learn to say difficult sounds in English quickly and to reduce your accent audibly. 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.

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 you practice a lot, you will be successful and will master American English.

We will cover all 44 phonic sounds of the English language

Tom’s lessons are packed with fun games and activities, e.g., interactive PowerPoint, whiteboard, rubrics, videos. My daughters ability and confidence rose significantly over the past month, partially due to understanding what’s required and knowing what’s on the Common Core Standards. I think this should be explained to all students.
Mary W.
I enjoyed my lessons with Tom and felt I was making progress with my pronunciation issues. Unfortunately, we had some scheduling conflicts and had to stop our sessions. I think he is a great teacher and would resume the lessons, once our schedules line up again.

"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!"
