Hello, English-learners!

My name is Deanna and I am an American accent and business English coach certified in both ESL and PESL (Pronouncing English as a second language)!

After spending years working with hundreds of students as an ESL instructor in Asia, both in-person and online, I noticed that nearly all had not been provided adequate American accent training before coming to me, no matter their skill levels or professional ambitions. Tired of seeing these dedicated English language learners struggle to properly express themselves, I decided to move away from traditional ESL curriculum to focus on accent reduction.

My students hail from all over the world-- China, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Italy, France, Mexico, and more. Along with teaching business and general English, I have also worked as a TOEFL and IELTS prep teacher for all English subjects. I am also passionate about providing career training for expats working in the States, including interview skills, presentation prep,

"Ms Prajakta is a nice teacher. She taught my son Hindi from the basics. He is able to speak full sentences and name things in Hindi. One suggestion for Ms Prajakta is to talk to her students for 5 mins in her first class so that they get familiar with the teacher which will make them more comfortable. Not all kids are alike and for reserved kids to start talking to the teacher in the first class is bit challenging. Thanks for the time and effort."
