I'm very excited to be working with Rita! I was incredibly nervous about learning a new language (not my strongest skill) and Rita was very encouraging. She asked questions to really zero in on exactly how I will be learn and immediately tailored her instruction in a manner that matched my learning style. Highly recommend to anyone.

About Jennifer

My greatest passion in life is teaching. I was born and raised in New Jersey, and experienced great success in my academics, due to amazing and unforgettable teachers. This is the foundation of my commitment to helping out my students, whatever their abilities may be. I have been tutoring and teaching for over 10 years in various settings — tutoring small and large groups, private individual tutoring, and teaching in rural, suburban, and urban classrooms and home settings. I have a bachelor's degree in Applied Linguistics with a minor in Psychology. I also have special teaching licenses in TEFL and TESOL. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I'm able to quickly identify unique needs, to help each student progress quickly! Students find me patient, kind and fun to work with. Regarding ESL tutoring, I have a deep understandin

g of the science and research behind the way English as a second language is learned. I'm flexible and can adapt quickly to the way each individual student learns best. Education has given me the opportunity to find what I am passionate about, and I hope to help others gain that same opportunity through tutoring.

My lessons focus on the four aspects of language learning for everyday life: Listening and speaking, reading and writing.

I started to teach in France in elementary schools. When I moved in United States, I worked as a French substitute teacher in high schools. In order to enrich my professional experience, I taught at college-level and worked for foreign language institutions providing immersion programs to children, and adults. Concurrently, I have been tutoring High School students, in collaboration with their teachers, to help them improve their skills, grades and self-confidence in the language.

About Jennifer

Hello! My name is Jenny and I am an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certified and Illinois-state licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) (also known as a speech therapist) with a Master's degree in Communication Disorders and Sciences from the State University of New York at Buffalo. I graduated with a 3.93/4.0 GPA while completing an elective Master's thesis. I've been a speech therapist since 2012, and one of my career areas of specialty is speech, which makes me well qualified to help you on your path to accent reduction.

I am certified in the Compton Pronouncing English as a Second Language (P-ESL) Program, a program created by Dr. Arthur J. Compton, and utilize this program and my years of experience as a speech-language pathologist to create your individualized accent reduction program. 

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!
