I have been teaching professionally for 10 years. Most of them abroad, in Ireland and Turkey and always at the Instituto Cervantes and in several universities, last year in Barcelona, at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona. I do love to teach Spanish to groups but specially private lessons as they give me the option to build an specific curriculum for that student, work on the needs and what he really wants to learn. My lessons are very dynamic and also fun, we work all the aspects and also the culture from Spain if you're interested. I have a long experience teaching students from all over the world, with different ages and levels.

I've been teaching Belarusian language for 14 years.

I offer Belarusian Language lessons/classes:
Language development,
Social Language Use

My lessons are based on dialogue and discussions. I have found this strategy extremely effective and beneficial in developing strong instructor-to-students relationships.

This is one of my absolute passions! Did you know that “regionally specific dialects” change approximately every 20 miles? Part of my vocal training included a deep dive into dialects or accents, how to master them and how to lose them. This is so much easier than you may think! It’s all about small modifications, mostly in the mouth and jaw that can completely change the way you sound.

How many sessions you need really depends on how much work you’re willing to put in between sessions. I can give you the keys, but this is really a case of practice makes perfect. If you find you’re not booking because of your accent, let me help you master “LA speak” otherwise known as the “non-regionally specific U.S. dialect”.

Hint: I’ve lived in 8 different countries so far and in the last month I’ve had 2 of my long time acting coaches say “Wow… I would have never known you weren’t from LA!”

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Great teacher and acting coach! She knows her stuff and has clearly been in the business a long time with a lot of experience. Really wants you to be the best and to work and book jobs. Patient and supportive but still pushes. Fun to work with too - has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend.

I’m very happy that I found Hunter. She’s a great teacher and a lovely person. I enjoy my classes. She is very patient and I can see she cares about her students making progress.
October 31, 2019
Hunter has really helped me a lot! In only a few months I have almost no accent left. I came to the US for work about 5 years ago but English was not my first language. I am very educated and read and write it well, but people did not always understand me easily when I spoke due to my accent. I was also not as confident in making business presentations to my colleagues who are native English speakers. Now, I have almost no accent at all when speaking English! Finally, no more of people asking me "where are you from?" I'm really happy for Hunter's help. She is so friendly and easy to talk to and makes the lessons fun to do! I would highly recommend her coaching if you want to lose your accent and speak perfect American English.

My lessons with Yukari are so helpful I’ve only had three so far and have learned so much. She makes everything super easy to understand and the lessons are so much fun; making them comforting and encouraging. She does a great job at including various cultural tips and background stories on the language. It is so interesting and useful if you ever want to go to Japan! I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone looking to improve their skills in this language, at ALL LEVELS!

Yukari is prompt, responsive, sweet, and easy to get along with! I love that she's a native Japanese speaker and can answer all of my questions about cultural norms and etiquette. Can't wait for more lessons with her.
