Private Accent Reduction Teacher

How you communicate is especially important in business, professional and social situations. 'Not that speaking English like an American is the end all, be all, but it can assist you in communicating your ideas as rapidly as possible. Misunderstandings are less frequent, when what you have said is comprehended quickly. Ultimately everyone can speak English with clear and proper pronunciation; I can give you the tips and tricks to assist you in excelling. My background with singing required that I learn the 'IPA' or International Phonetic Alphabet. This training has assisted me in learning ways in which to decipher the spoken word (as well as singing in various languages). My background in teaching English has also prepared me to understand various idioms, 'cliches', jargon, slang, and euphemisms. My students in accent reduction will find that I have a wellspring of information and methods for reducing an accent. In working together via our private lessons, you will have practice ...

Private Accent Reduction Teacher

Want to sound more like a native English speaker?? I would really love the opportunity to help you improve your English abilities. I believe in using examples, scenarios, conversation and visual aids to keep the class interesting. I listen to students needs in order to let you guide the lesson topics to where your learning needs and goals will be achieved. I am just a subject matter expert and a facilitator of your learning. I believe strongly in the value of education, self-learning and continuous learning. You will be a better learner if you approach each topic from your interests and from a discovery approach. You may find that learning English while also learning about other topics (business, careers, hobbies, interests, travel, culture, etc.) makes it more valuable.

Excellent teacher!

It’s been more than 2 years since I started my lessons with Eric and I suppose I was lucky to find such a professional with a strong business and PhD background. It was important for me to develop my verbal communication abilities in finance and economics and Eric was definitely the right choice. Both his personal and professional skills make the studying process smooth and efficient and I really see the results as I have become much more confident when making presentations and also I passed successfully CFA Exam Level I. Apart from relevant and coherent agendas for our well-structured lessons with intensive homework preparation materials I can also emphasize his punctuality and friendliness. He is a really good tutor and I highly recommend him!

Online Accent Reduction Teacher

I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? Being a singing teacher for over 15 years, I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out why and how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.

Coming from an immigrant family myself, and being fluent in three languages (English, Spanish, Italian), I can relate to the challenges foreigners face when attempting to speak in a neutralized American accent. This can be holding you back from advancing your career.

You will see results instantly. Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

Online Accent Reduction Teacher

The key to reducing your accent is a sensitive, objective hearing. We hear what we project from our minds. Very often it is not the same as what comes out of our mouths. The listener is also a judge that effects our speaking and thinking as well as our emotional state. That as you may know, effects the way we speak and also the way we perceive what we hear. The accent actually changes every day.

There is your first lesson and its free! There is much more to learn and to explore in accent reduction. I speak multiple languages and I am a professional musician with an unusually refined hearing. I possess perfect pitch, being able to identify frequency to within a range of a tuning instrument. As a conductor, I am able to hear which section and which instrument in that section is sharp or flat on a given note in the middle of playing a symphonic work.

Why is this important? It is vital to being able to identify what and where is needed to be moved as you speak to reduce

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.
