- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hoping to learn to reduce your accent and communicate more clearly and efficiently? I would love to help. I am a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and have 9 years of experience.
All ages and skill levels are welcome. Lessons will focus mostly on pronunciation and other areas of speech production. Learning the English language will not be the focus, but I will help to answer any vocabulary and grammar questions you have.
All lessons are individualized and tailored for each student's goals and preferences. The overarching goal of my accent modification lessons is for your speech to be better understood but not to completely eliminate your accent, as it is part of who you are.
I hope that I can help you reach your goals as quickly as possible. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and have been practicing for over 8 years. I have a Master's degree in speech-language pathology, and my minor in college was American Sign Language (ASL).
I have spent much of the last 6 years doing online speech and language therapy with cyber school students. This experience has helped to develop my skills and familiarity with tele-therapy, which can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy.
In graduate school, I provided accent modification therapy with non-native English speakers who worked as graduate assistants and teachers. I also have substantial experience working with adults of all ages on speech and language skills (among others) in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient clinics.
Practice makes progress. I will help to provide you with the skills you need to improve your English pronunciation, rhythm and intonation, and overall speaking skills for increased clarity in conversations and work settings. I will also give you activities to do on your own. Your commitment to your goals during and outside of lessons will contribute in a large part to how much progress you make and how quickly you make it.
Just a little more about me: I enjoy traveling, reading, yoga, movies, animals, and being with my family. I also enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures and languages.
If you are interested in working with me, please send me a message. I hope to meet you soon!
Angie is a great teacher. She is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. She will customize the lesson to fit your needs, and often times, even go the extra mile of researching and providing any extra contents that can help you. She will pick up even the minute details and help you change. Of course change is not easy, but knowing is truly half the battle. Thank you Angie for making the class so enjoyable!Show More
