Private Accent Reduction Teacher

Using phonetic tools and charts, I help students achieve a more natural American English pronunciation tailored to individual strengths and weaknesses. I work with the student's base language as a point of comparison and help in all aspects of the English from basic sound structures to more complicated intonation in different types of sentences.

I've been teaching accent reduction lessons for about 6 years now, and have seen many people of all different backgrounds improve.

I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

Online Accent Reduction Teacher

I have a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics with a minor in Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude with a 3.95 GPA. I also have special teaching licenses in TEFL and TESOL. I have been tutoring for 15+ years all grade levels and subjects, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, and Language Arts. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I'm able to identify unique needs, to help each student progress. Students find me patient, kind and fun to work with. Regarding ESL tutoring, I have a deep understanding of the science and research behind the way English as a second language is learned. I also train teachers on state-adopted ESL materials, so I have access to great resources. I love technology and enjoy using it as a tool for my work. I'm flexible and can adapt to the way each individual student learns best.

My greatest passion in life is teaching. I have experienced great success in my academics, due to amazing and unforgettable teachers. This is the foundation of

Spectacular and Recommended Tutor!
Jennifer tutored my daughter for the ACT. The results were nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer is incredibly smart, has a lovely disposition with parents and students, is prompt and communicative, and most importantly, clearly knows what she is doing. She is strategic in every aspect of her tutoring for the ACT, which is exactly what we needed and what hooked my daughter into the plan. She never complained about the tutoring sessions -- she saw the value immediately. Result: 7 point composite increase with 6-8 point improvement in every test area! To give you context to determine how your own student might fare, my daughter is highly intelligent, takes every AP class she can, and is very "coachable," so she started the tutoring with a lot of potential. However, she was not into studying for the test at all (SAT, same thing) and generally performs below her ability on standardized tests due to text anxiety. When push came to shove, she saw that her scores were below what she needed for her first choice college. With only three weeks to study before her last chance to improve her scores, she began to work with Jennifer. Jennifer tutored my daughter for a total of about 18 hours and gave her practice assignments. She zeroed in strategically on the types of questions that were the most problematic for her and explained, for example, that if she had just known a certain skill, she would have gotten 8 questions correct and thereby improved her score by 3 points (numbers estimated from memory). That approach drew my daughter in right away and it worked! I highly recommend Jennifer. She was worth every minute and every penny.

EXCEPTIONAL tutor!! Patient! Thorough! Highly Knowledgeable!
Jennifer consistently shows up for our daughter's online sessions with a bright, warm smile that immediately puts our daughter's nerves at ease. Jennifer patiently and skillfully untangled the complicated problems that had befuddled our daughter, and replaced her insecurity with clarity and confidence! Jennifer tamed the big "Math monster", replacing it with a manageable "math puppy"! Over the last 6 months, Jennifer was able to explain and demystify difficult math concepts, increasing our daughter's confidence and competence with every session! Before beginning sessions with Jennifer, our daughter had set the bar low, wishing only to "pass" her math classes with an acceptable grade, in order to complete her college career. However, by week eight of tutoring, with soaring confidence and new-found math proficiency, our daughter not only passed her final summer math class, but earned an "A" , finishing at the TOP of her class! This would not have been possible without the extraordinary skillfulness, expert teaching abilities and patience that Jennifer brings in her masterful "tool chest." She speaks the "language of math" in a way that crystallizes its concepts for her students! She is an extraordinary teacher and an absolute gift to her students!!
Stephanie
Highly Recommended!!!!!!!
Jennifer has been tutoring our daughter for over 2 years in ESL. Our daughter loves Jennifer, she is very knowledgeable, straight to the point, very clear with her explanations, and helps her a lot with grasping some concepts that are unclear for her. Jennifer is always willing to accommodate my schedule and willing to make extra time for my daughter when she needed it. She’s very patient and truly wants her students to succeed! My only regret is that we had not found Jennifer earlier!

"Hunter is a great teacher. She is really good at catching even barely noticeable pronunciation issues. She gives clear instructions on how to fix them. She is very knowledgeable about other countries and cultures which makes it easy for her to understand one’s accent. Thanks to her acting experience, she knows a lot of drills for relaxing the jaw and making your voice sounds more clear and crisp. It’s a pleasure working with Hunter and I am looking forward to continuing our sessions. I would definitely recommend Hunter to anyone who wants to improve their American English pronunciation."

"Steve has helped our son improve his speech in record time. It took us about a year to find a person who could help us with the very specific task of guiding a teenager toward using a more formal speech in general, in terms of both vocabulary and pronunciation. English is our second language, and Steve has been incredibly creative in finding ways to show our child how to improve his management of the English language. My child's self-confidence is growing, as is his academic commitment in general."
