Just finished my 4th class with Isabelle. She has been very helpful with my French conversation. She meets me at my level and then challenges me. She speaks clearly and at a speed I can understand. The notes after the lesson are excellent and help me to continue my learning. I highly recommend Isabelle!
Brian
"Listener" is how I would describe Isabelle, and it's why she is a great teacher. I brought a lot of random questions into lessons each week and she helped me with all of the answers. She also used the answers to my questions to show me further examples to be able to help me frame why things were the way they were. This is my first French teacher but I couldn't be happier with the time I've gotten from Isabelle. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.
LINGYI
I have been having French lessons with Isabelle for more than 6 months. I definitely have learned a lot! Isabelle is very patient and flexible about different learning methods. I highly recommend her!

Has me cracking up every session!) Hunter makes you feel completely comfortable but knows how to get serious and touch and get stuff done. I’m really starting to notice a difference in the way I talk and the way I sound. She gives you very simple, very effective exercises for practice in between sessions an good memory hooks. Very organized and an excellent understanding of the work and accents in general. Fantastic teacher. I’m sure you’ll love her."

"Steve has helped our son improve his speech in record time. It took us about a year to find a person who could help us with the very specific task of guiding a teenager toward using a more formal speech in general, in terms of both vocabulary and pronunciation. English is our second language, and Steve has been incredibly creative in finding ways to show our child how to improve his management of the English language. My child's self-confidence is growing, as is his academic commitment in general."

Accent Reduction Near You

Just over 50 percent of people in the world are bilingual. Knowing additional languages, especially English, can open up all kinds of new opportunities. But the ongoing path of mastering a second language isn't always easy.

One of the greatest challenges for English learners is the ability to sound as natural as possible when speaking. You want to do your best to portray yourself as a native speaker of the language, even if you aren't. If you feel like your foreign accent is holding you back, there is fortunately a solution for you. 

With private tutoring, you can effectively learn how to reduce your accent so that your English skills will be able to shine through. The best way to minimize your accent is by taking one-on-one accent reduction lessons. Below, we’ll go into a few more of the benefits of taking accent reduction classes near you.

Benefits of Accent Reduction Classes Near You

Accent Reduction Lessons Give You More Confidence

Confidence is really important when it comes to mastering English. But when you have enough negative encounters with people who don't understand you, language insecurities can run rampant. Accent reduction classes help you overcome these feelings of insecurity or fear when interacting with native speakers. 

Your confidence will soar when you know you're easily understood by others. After putting your new skills into practice, you'll realize the communicative power you've unlocked through mastering accent reduction.

Studying Accent Reduction Near You Minimizes Frustration

When people struggle to understand what you're saying because of your heavy accent, it can be very frustrating. It's also frustrating for those who are listening. You likely know English very well but lack the ability to link words and sounds together fluidly. 

An accent reduction coach can help you overcome this frustration and even begin to enjoy speaking English. You and those you converse with will be happy to connect on a more meaningful level. It's a great feeling when you can smoothly get your point across without having to repeat yourself!

Accent Reduction Training Opens Up More Opportunities

It can be discouraging when you spend tons of time learning a language, but your accent sabotages your effectiveness. This roadblock makes it very difficult to ace job interviews. It can also cause your performance at work to suffer. If you're regularly required to give presentations, or to interact with patients, clients and customers, accent training will help you immensely. 

An American accent teacher can help you with these struggles. More jobs will open up for you with fluent English skills, and the job you have now will become much easier. You can even increase your earning potential as well.

Curriculum When Learning Accent Modification Near You

When speaking your native language, there are a number of things you do to be successful without even realizing it. However, when learning to speak English fluently and without an accent, you’ll begin to notice many intricate nuances that need focus and intentionality to master.

An accent reduction tutor can help you identify any difficult areas of your pronunciation and work through those with you in one-on-one lessons. Personalized accent reduction lessons are available for English learners of all levels, but here are some of the general topics you'll study throughout the process:

  • Vowel articulation
  • Patterns of speech
  • Clarity
  • Rhythm
  • Movement coordination
  • Phonology
  • Different English accents across the US

Finding an Accent Reduction Tutor

When you’re ready to take your first accent reduction class, TakeLessons is the go-to resource for finding a qualified American accent teacher near you. Simply browse through our impressive directory to find the perfect fit for you.
