Private Accent Reduction Teacher

I have experience tutoring Filipinos and Koreans in developing English fluency and accent reduction. My own practice in learning accents for acting, then in real life practice while living abroad, has equipped me to help others develop their own skill.

About Carla

I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Bur

Carla is like a friend you’ve had forever. She gears lessons to your level and interests and is patient with my senior brain that needs a lot of repetition. She is also happy to give me time to write down notes for later. Her constructive criticism about hand position, etc. is really helpful, and I know she is paying attention to me!
Allyn L.
I am really excited about my ASL lessons with Carla. She was very congenial and easy to warm up to immediately. She is patient and gave me time to take notes which help me review later. Carl geared the lesson toward my level of experience and was happy for me to ask questions anytime. She gave me good pointers on my hand position. I think she will be an exceptional tutor!

Carla is the best. Fantastic teacher and easy to get along with. My wife and I had a lot of fun in our lesson.

Theo
In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.
Pam
Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.
Pam B.
Isabelle is a fabulous teacher. Anyone would be lucky to have her!

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!

Maddy
Molly is amazing! She’s taught me way more than singing skills - my confidence as a singer has grown exponentially since I began taking lessons from Molly. I would recommend Molly to anyone, especially anyone who may think that lessons are intimidating. I feel comfortable making mistakes because Molly is so kind and positive. That said, since starting taking lessons with Molly, I’ve been making a lot fewer mistakes! Molly is the best!
Tia
Molly is such a kind and patient teacher. She never gets upset if you make a mistake and she is extremely encouraging throughout the lesson. I'm a very shy singer but I feel comfortable singing in front of Molly because she isn't judgemental at all! I always look forward to my lessons with her and I've already grown as a singer and grown confidence-wise because of working with her! I highly recommend her!

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.
