Does Your Accent Hold You Back? Improve Your Accent Today!

Heavy accents, slurred speech or talking too fast can cause listeners to become prejudiced. It’s not just your speech; it’s the listeners’ ears.

You can learn techniques to correct your errors and change your speech habits, so people can become more interested in what you are saying instead of how you are saying it.

About Eric
For over 30 years, I've had the privilege to have worked with thousands of performers who study with me from all over the world. I teach in-studio at my two locations in Houston and in The Woodlands, Texas. I also work with students who come to me from all over the globe via online over-the-web Skype lessons.

Originally from Detroit, I enjoyed being a "Jack of all styles" singer/musician for over 15 years. I was a professional musician performing Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Musical Theater, Commercial and Studio work, along with being very involved in Contemporary Christian music. While I very much loved to perform, I found myself drawn much more to the joy of teaching. Vocal instruction and improvisational piano teaching eventually became my passion, and so I've poured my time and energies into teaching singers and players to
become, well… better musicians!

I have been singing in Choirs and Bands for a number of years and learned more about my voice and singing properly in a 45 minute session with Eric than I have in all my years of performing. I now understand why I have been struggling to sing in my upper register and Eric has put together a personalized program to help me develop my voice and gain back my vocal range. Eric has a great sense of humor and made the session very enjoyable as well as informative. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend Eric as an instructor.

I trained for three years in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and can help you learn a system for training your own ear to hear accents, regionalisms, dialects and then feel, in your physical body, how to make shifts in how you speak and thereby how you sound. The work is not just academic, but physical, experiential and straightforward. It is enjoyable and empowering and something you will be able to easily practice on your own and apply in the day to day for quick results. I look forward to working with you!

About Claire
I hold an MFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts and have been teaching professionally for over ten years. I teach Acting and Auditiong to young actors (10-18 years) and I also teach Public Speaking, Voice/Speech and Accent Reduction to those looking to find more ease and power when using their voice in front of others. I have taught, directed and coached young actors who have gone on to work professionally in Film, TV and Theater and my students have been accepted to renowned conservatories and universities across the country (NYU Tisch, California Institute of the Arts, AMDA and others). I am a passionate teacher who believes in the individual and in unlocking the creative genius, the impulses, the imagination and the unique forms of expression within each of my students. In my sessions, I encourage my students to
“play” and to discover how to both lean in and tap in to what is there and then develop relaxation, ease and focus on the task at hand - a monologue, an audition, a speech or working with a text. In addition to teaching and coaching actors, I have worked extensively in the corporate worlds in areas of Voice, Speech and Presentation as a coach and have taught group classes on Public Speaking and Presentation. I have taught and coached students from China, Russia, Taiwan, Italy, Japan in addition to the U.S. Throughout the ten plus years that I have been teaching, I have helped both actors and non-actors, those in the professional business world, gain tools that lead to freedom and ease of expression when speaking in front of others, be it at an audition, an interview, giving a presentation to a board or speaking in front of thousands at a Ted Talk.

Claire is a professional. She is a natural born teacher who immediately clicked with my son. She gave him the tools he needed for an upcoming audition at a theatre conservatory. Anyone from beginner to dedicated professional would benefit from private lessons with her. We feel very lucky we found her with so many less qualified people out there.

My child is just getting into acting but I strongly believe his coaching on voice will help her for many years. In fact I’m tempted to sign up more family members for Bill’s instruction.

Find your English accent without losing your uniqueness! I help students acquire a clear and expressive American English accent. If typical approaches to English pronunciation don't work for you, I can help. My approach is physical as opposed to learning by hearing and imitating sounds. I have worked with seasoned professionals as well as newly arrived immigrants just beginning to learn English. My students often have a strong command of the language, but are concerned that they aren't being fully heard and understood. You will find a pleasant and supportive studio where I create an individualized plan tailored to your goals and needs. You already have a good voice--you can build on that and enhance your American English in your professional and social life.

About Jennifer
If conventional approaches to improving your speaking voice aren't working for you, I can help. A teacher since 1999, I draw on a wide range of experiences and techniques. I can work with you to create an easy, enjoyable plan.I've worked with children, high school/college students, professional actors, educators, broadcasters, singers, dancers, executives, students with special needs, senior citizens, immigrants, ESL students, and refugees. I employ Lessac, Berry, Linklater, and Skinner voice and body work in addition to my own teaching methods. I am based in the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Virginia. I'm happy to answer your questions and help you grow in vocal power, skill, and confidence!

Are you speaking English but not being understood? Accent reduction will make all your hard work and English study worth it. I have 10 years teaching experience in ESL and a BA degree in American English Speech Language Pathology. I provide coaching in all areas of American English, including vowels, consonants, syllable/word stress, sentence intonation and tips for sounding fluent. I also offer coaching for specific pronunciation errors from many different languages. Send me a message and we'll create a personalized plan together.

About Rachel
Teaching English is my passion and accent reduction is the best part. I meet many students that work very hard to perfect their English only to be not understood when the time comes to communicate. I love being the one to give them the tools they need to deliver that perfect sentence during a job interview or final presentation.

I've traveled widely and studied Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. I know the joys and struggles of learning a second (or third) language, and use that experience to help my students. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI with a BA in Speech and Language Pathology (SLP) and also a BA in Chinese Language and Culture. As a BA SLP, I am qualified to coach accent reduction. I believe there is nothing wrong with having an accent, but I also believe you should be able to turn it on or off whenever you w
ant -- fluently. Just like an actor/actress learns an accent for a film, you can learn American English for your professional life.

I have four kids, all girls. I love to write fiction and poetry in my spare time and I also volunteer twice a week to teach English. I also love gardening, but I am not terribly good at it! People who meet me say, "Wow you have your hands full!" and I love to answer, "Yes! Full of good things!"

Practice and feedback on pronunciation. Guidance on how to produce the accurate sound, and fluency in order to be understood clearly. Improvement in oral presentation and communication.

About Karen
While a student at Texas Woman's University, I also pursued my TEFL certification. A part of my requirement was student teaching or tutoring. I tutored international students Ghana, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and Mexico. As a teacher, I teach English online to students in China. When I was a student at TWU, I participated in the Education Abroad Program and studied German in Austria and Germany. My background in vocal training and linguistics gives me the skills and knowledge to help my students accomplish the American English oral, reading, and writing skills that they need to advance in school or career. I understand the needs of students to speak conversationally or professionally in the language of the country they are in.
I love helping students to learn to speak clearly in order to succeed in oral presentations and to be understo
od in everyday communication. I enjoy seeing their faces light up when they accomplish a task or lesson by using what they studied and practiced with me.

About Will H.

As a skilled P-ESL teacher (Pronouncing English as a Second Language), I'll not only give you the tools to express yourself with clarity and understanding, but also confidence with the regional sounds of your area.

I know that your native accent is part of who you are. Don't worry, you won't loose your native accent. Instead, you'll have the tools to quickly switch back and forth.

About Will
Hi there, I'm Will. I’ve spent the last 10 years exploring the artsy-science of storytelling and persuasive speech, and put in many a late night to streamline success in the voice over industry (commercials and cartoons). Over the past 5 years, 200+ repeat clients in 23 countries have trusted me to speak for them, to be an advocate for their brand.

For years, I've spoken for other people...now, I want to teach others to speak for themselves. Maybe you're trying to gain greater confidence in speaking, maybe you're looking to modify your native accent, maybe you want to regain your old voice after a stroke or injury, maybe you want to build a sustainable career in acting/vo like I've done. Whatever you're after, I can help.
