10-Hour Course will prepare you to keep improving on your own and will improve at least 3-4 critical sounds/vowels/consonants that you struggle with the most. Liaisons and the schwa sound - most people have no idea about these, but you will learn what they are and how to sound more like a native speaker if you use them both correctly.

Suggested: At least 30 hours for long term accountability and change.

There is more time available than what is shown on my calendar. Please email me to discuss your preferred time. I call you before the lesson and plan your specific goals. I create a tailored course specifically for your needs, whether you're from Russia, Japan, Latin America, Italy, France or another country. I have 12 years' experience, and I am an expert.

I use a specific curriculum to help you understand the phonetics and vowel sounds in the English language. There are so many different vowel pairs and learners of English must understand them all. Let me help you ...

About Micah
I have been a full time private English instructor since 2008, and I've had my global language training company (over 100 instructors) since 2014. I take on private students here, exclusively with take lessons, because it's important to always be teaching and creating more modern curriculum for real progress in fluency. I know what it takes to get fluent, because I've acquired Spanish, French and Japanese as an adult. I know you can improve and teach your goals just as I have.

I always call clients before the first class to extensively discuss your goals. I have a specific form we full out together for every 3 months of progress. I have researched this, and it's the most effective way to improve.

I work primarily with professionals who need to improve American English language skills and/ or accent for those working in the United
States or working with Americans. Also, I can get English speakers to a high level of fluency in Spanish.

This includes, slang, idioms, phrasal verbs, professional email writing, presentations, American culture, accent/pronunciation and more.

I have created a method, which is a specific way to learn languages, which is the most effective for acquiring a language.

I always use RELEVANT articles to read, TV shows to watch, books to read, radio shows to listen to, in order to incorporate English as much as possible in every aspect of the student's life.

This is how we learn our first language, so why would we try to learn our second language in a different way? Second language researchers have been saying for decades that grammar- focused lessons don't work, yet our schools continue to focus on this. You want to be FLUENT, right? Writing is easy after that.

I have had contracts with Hitachi, NTT Data, Intel, Amazon, Google, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Samsung, Ferrovial, Webber, Bluebonnet, Austin Bridges and Roads, North Tarrant Infrastructure, Trinity, Mary Kay International, and many, many more international companies.

How I teach: I create customized classes for you. I teach you to SPEAK the language. Lessons are dynamic, fun and give you confidence, incorporating things you like: TV, radio, music, movies, current events, and much more.

One-on-one, small groups, company-wide programs, online, in person.

About Claire L.

Close
Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

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.

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 Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.

Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!

About Jennifer
Hello! My name is Jenny and I am an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certified and Illinois-state licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) (also known as a speech therapist) with a Master's degree in Communication Disorders and Sciences from the State University of New York at Buffalo. I graduated with a 3.93/4.0 GPA while completing an elective Master's thesis. I've been a speech therapist since 2012, and one of my career areas of specialty is speech, which makes me well qualified to help you on your path to accent reduction.

I am certified in the Compton Pronouncing English as a Second Language (P-ESL) Program, a program created by Dr. Arthur J. Compton, and utilize this program and my years of experience as a speech-language pathologist to create your individualized accent reduction program. 

Where do you want to
be in a few short months? Do you want more successful communication, to feel more confident conducting a business meeting, lecturing to students, speaking to customers, or communicating with patients, to be able to joyfully converse without worrying if your accent is detracting from your message... and to save time by speeding up your results through personal, individualized instruction with a program tailored specifically to your individual speech patterns?

Here's your path:
1) You'll begin by taking an accent assessment, so I can listen to your speech/accent and determine what sounds are different than the sounds in American English and structure an individualized program for you.
2) We then work together for 13 weeks, for one hour sessions per week. All sessions will include practice work so that you can be well on your way to achieving an accent that is closer to American English.
3) Your practice work is all online for you - you'll have an online practice portal that you keep for the rest of your life to return back to and refresh as much as you'd like.

I am passionate about accent reduction because I want my clients to be able to succeed in the paths they choose in life, uncover their most promising futures, and discover what their lives can be.

I look forward to hearing from you!

About Hunter P.

Close
Beverly Hills, CA
View Full Profile

This is one of my absolute passions! Did you know that “regionally specific dialects” change approximately every 20 miles? Part of my vocal training included a deep dive into dialects or accents, how to master them and how to lose them. This is so much easier than you may think! It’s all about small modifications, mostly in the mouth and jaw that can completely change the way you sound.

How many sessions you need really depends on how much work you’re willing to put in between sessions. I can give you the keys, but this is really a case of practice makes perfect. If you find you’re not booking because of your accent, let me help you master “LA speak” otherwise known as the “non-regionally specific U.S. dialect”.

Hint: I’ve lived in 8 different countries so far and in the last month I’ve had 2 of my long time acting coaches say “Wow… I would have never known you weren’t from LA!”

About Hunter
Hunter loves to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. She has been coaching actors since 2008 and has a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work that stands out to casting directors & agents and to make self-tapes that shine above the rest.

She has spent more than 20 years working in the entertainment industry in 8 countries. This includes modeling, commercials & print work in Athens & Istanbul, acting in Toronto & London, UK, and even screen writing, before diving into the big market of Los Angeles that she now calls home.

With 10 years of vocal training (primarily spoken level voice & breath work for actors) voiceovers has also been a big part of her career, recording voices o
n more than 400 projects to date.

Hunter's love for the craft brought her to study in NYC with legendary acting coach Uta Hagen: a process that transformed her approach and led her to such roles as Blanche in Streetcar Named Desire and Karen in David Mamet's iconic Hollywood satire, Speed The Plow. She has also appeared on screen in The Bandit Hound II with Lou Ferrigno, Paul Sorvino & Catherine Bell & on TV in Mutant X, Doc, Singles Court, PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal and has hosted for HGTV. Currently she is voicing 5 characters (English language dubbing) on the mega hit TV series Babylon Berlin.

About Norwood M.

Close

Would you like to have a more standard "American" accent? I can help! I am a vocal coach of 5+ years as well as an international pop artist and voiceover artist. I specialize in pronunciation and diction and can help you reduce your accent.

About Norwood
I am a professional vocal coach with 5+ years of experience, as well as an international pop artist, actor, emcee and public speaker. I've studied a wide range of techniques including classical vocal training, contemporary singing, and the SLS (Speech Level Singing) method.

Over the years I've trained under the best vocal coaches in the nation including Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, Rob Thomas, etc.), RAab Stevenson (Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, etc.), Lis Lewis (Maroon 5, Rihanna, etc.), and Renee Grant-Williams (The Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, etc).

This wide range of study combined with years of teaching and performance experience have given me a vast vocal vocabulary to help teach others the "secret sauce" of singing and speaking. I have experience teaching from ages 8+, for those wit
h special needs, in a wide variety of styles and genres. I also teach professional speakers and actors how to use their speaking voice properly. My students say that I am a patient teacher who takes time to explain how the voice works and help them reach their potential.

My goal is to help share the fantastic techniques I've learned from the A-Level coaches with the masses at a fraction of the cost. Students of mine often hear a big improvement in their voice after only two weeks of lessons!

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.
