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!

Molly has helped me with 2 different musical theatre auditions now, and her instruction has been invaluable! I feel much more prepared and confident now than before. She has been encouraging, but also pushes me to do my best.

Carlane
I am an American moving to Portugal and Helena was referred to me by some of her former students. I didn’t have many lessons with her, but she got me off on a great start and we covered a lot of ground. Helena was always charming and pleasant, focused and persistent, patient and challenging. I am truly grateful to Helena for this start, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone wanting some tutoring in the Portuguese language.
Darcy
Helena is a great tutor-she adapts lessons to your pace of learning, is organized, prepared and responsive, really a pleasure to work with.
