Zelda started my lesson with the very basics, which I told her I really needed to avoid my getting frustrated (as I had when I originally tried to learn the ukulele all on my own). She taught me the names of the different parts of the ukulele and how to hold my instrument. Zelda also helped me properly tune my ukulele, taught me a mnemonic phrase to remember the names of the strings and taught me finger placement for my first two chords . . . all in a half hour lesson. Now I’ll practice strumming and changing between these two chords until it becomes more natural for me and we meet again for next week’s lesson!

Have really enjoyed my singing lessons so far with Zelda! Scheduled them for enjoyment as a destress from work. Booked my next five lessons and am very excited

Micah is an excellent and outstanding coach.
She focuses on improving the practical aspects of everyday speech. Her teaching methods are easy to practice and are effective. She is patient and understands how people from different cultures speak. This makes her instruction very useful and relevant to the student. I highly recommend her for language / accent training.
Livia Santoro
Micah is great!
Fernanda F.
No one ever told me before what I was saying wrong, and Micah would correct me so that I could improve.

She has specialized trademarked drills that she has created so that we train my muscles to move exactly with the true sounds of English as opposed to accent courses that show you the sounds alone. No sounds are said by themselves, so we do drills that incorporate full sentences so that I sound more like a native speaker. She even created Sound Like Americans Accent bootcamp course, and she gave me that for free that I use for the rest of my life and follow the 2-minute drills every day.

We also worked on presentations so that I could improve my pronunciation for the exact words that I would be using in my meetings with clients.

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

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. 

Our teachers provide the best accent reduction training available, have years of experience and credentials. On their profiles, you can view any teacher’s background, education, and reviews from former students like you.  

Although we recommend that you try to meet in-person with your instructor, that isn't your only option. You can also take your accent reduction classes online, from the comfort of your home. This works especially well for those who need classes at an unusual time of day. 

Need help choosing the best accent reduction tutor for your needs? Feel free to reach out to our friendly team of Student Counselors. We'd be happy to help you find the perfect teacher who will help you reach your goals.
