Hello and welcome!
In accent reduction lessons we will work on correct pronunciation in English. Depending on the student's specific needs, we will focus on vowels, consonants, and proper syllabic accenting (where the stress occurs in a particular word). Learning a new language at times can be quite frustrating, but my methods center around practical, real-world use of the English language to maximize our lessons.

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 is an amazing teacher, overflowing with enthusiasm and encouragement. I'm an amateur singer, and just wanted to take lessons to improve my singing a little bit so I could be better at musical improv. She helped reconnect me with my love of singing, and now I want more.

I can help you adapt your accent or dialect for an acting role or for business/professional purposes. “Accent reduction” is sort of a misnomer because what we’re really doing is learning a different accent; we all have accents. I can help you code-switch between your habitual dialect and one that you feel is more suitable for your situation.

Erin is an excellent instructor. She is very knowledgeable, very generous with that knowledge, very attentive, and encouraging. She is not only good at what she does but she is also very good at teaching. If you're unsure when picking an instructor here, you couldn't go wrong with Erin.

She is great, just great. 1st course yet she immediately helped me understand what were the real issues and how to tackle them. Now I feel confident to pass in front of an audience, because I know I will be heard and I will be understood!

I don’t teach accent reduction—I teach North American Dialect Acquisition. It’s not the same thing.

“Accent Reduction” feels demeaning to students I’ve worked with. Accents are simply speaking someone else’s language by the rules of your own (Trevor Noah). I don’t want to rob you of your own language; I want to help you master the rules of mine.

I share tools and techniques for speaking with the grammar, tone, and character of a locally-born US citizen with an emphasis on midwest and northwest dialects (typically regarded a "clean" or "flat" North American sound, like a news broadcaster). We approach it analytically, physically, and emotionally. Language is a full-body experience and I seek to honor your culture while adding a new skill to your collection.

I developed and applied this novel approach with two different cohorts of adult students at Tacoma Community College’s Internationally Educated Nurses program. It helped them pass their TOEFL exams and earn jobs in the United ...

He explains very well what you do and what you should do instead.
It's hands-on from minute 1, and I learn so much from the first class.

Adam is highly intuitive, sharp and doesn't miss a beat!
He creates a fun environment to tackle a challenging subject.
I finally find the right person after trying a few teachers.
I highly recommend him."

"Gabriel developed a proprietary method of accent reduction that makes it easy to focus on the areas that need change or improvement. The method, combined with Gabriel’s passion for teaching, make the classes dynamic and productive. He quickly identified my problematic areas, and patiently worked with me on changes I needed to make to the way I pronounce certain sounds.

He also provides ample resources and direction for exercises in between the lessons to make the progress faster. I highly recommend Gabriel for accent reduction classes."
