Accent reduction is something very desired when wanting to achieve a neutral tone. People do this for various reasons, and the most common one is for an acting role. I will help you achieve this by training your voice to be more neutral. We will work on vowels, consonants, tongue/mouth formation, and do voice exercises to help you better pronounce words in a neutral fashion. My technique is focused on repetition. This is the key to help train your voice to produce the sound you want it to. I look forward to working with you!

About Amy O.

Hello! My name is Amy and I am very excited to meet you! I am a native of the beautiful state of North Carolina. I have a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Psychology and Child Developmental Psychology, a TESOL Advanced licensure and a TESOL Foundational licensure. I have been teaching both in and out of the traditional classroom for 16 years. I love teaching ESL and it has been amazing watching my students going from non- English speaking to virtually fluent! ESL is certainly a passion. I am an ESL teacher for an amazing company based out of Beijing, China and love it! My students have become like family to me and I feel so privileged to be able to teach them ESL.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids. Some of our favorite things to do together are playing outside, jumping on our trampoline, watching funny movies, and playing with our 3 adorable kitties! I look forward to seeing you in the classroom!
