How you communicate is especially important in business, professional and social situations. 'Not that speaking English like an American is the end all, be all, but it can assist you in communicating your ideas as rapidly as possible. Misunderstandings are less frequent, when what you have said is comprehended quickly. Ultimately everyone can speak English with clear and proper pronunciation; I can give you the tips and tricks to assist you in excelling. My background with singing required that I learn the 'IPA' or International Phonetic Alphabet. This training has assisted me in learning ways in which to decipher the spoken word (as well as singing in various languages). My background in teaching English has also prepared me to understand various idioms, 'cliches', jargon, slang, and euphemisms. My students in accent reduction will find that I have a wellspring of information and methods for reducing an accent. In working together via our private lessons, you will have practice becoming more fluent in your conversational speech. You will learn how to produce sounds (vowels, consonants and consonant clusters) using correct tongue, jaw and lip positions. You will learn techniques to reduce tongue tension. You will also learn where to stress the syllables in words with multiple syllables. And finally, we will work on intonaton that will assist you in accent reduction.

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!

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!
