My background as a singer and speaking voice expert has allowed me to help many not native English speakers gain confidence! I also work with regional accents to help "neutralize" . Bet you can't tell I'm from Chicago: I got rid of MY OWN accent through vowel work!
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 am a professional opera singer and have studied diction and languages for 12 years. I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reach your communication goals in speaking American English! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others. I like to think of this more as "accent acquisition" as opposed to "accent reduction" - we all have an accent! My goal is to help you speak English clearly and comfortably so that you can communicate with others with confidence.
I have taught listening, speaking and pronunciation classes to students of all ages and from a variety of language backgrounds. Whether it is an issue of fluency or individual phonetic sounds, I can cater my lessons to your level and goals. I have taught online and on the ground so I have built an extensive arsenal of resources to suit all needs. I look forward to working with you!
