Sound More Like a Native Speaker of English
I can help you adapt your accent or dialect for an acting role or for business/professional purposes. “Accent reduction” is sort of a misnomer because what we’re really doing is learning a different accent; I prefer the term "accent modification." We all have accents! But I can help you code-switch between your habitual dialect and one that you feel is more suitable for your situation. I have worked with speakers from Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Poland, France, India, Italy, and more. The work we do together can give you more confidence and a greater sense of ease when you speak, knowing that you can be heard and understood.
About Erin C.

I am an actor, comedian, speech & dialect coach, and acting teacher. I had steady freelance teaching and coaching jobs for 3 years in NYC, as well as steady acting work in NYC and Chicago theatre for several years. I moved to LA from Cambridge, MA, where I earned my MFA in Acting from the American Repertory Theater Institute at Harvard. I am still an active performer in comedy, theatre, film, and TV. I have coached privately and for theatre productions ranging from world-premieres to revivals of Pinter plays to musicals. I've directed Shakespeare and new plays, I've been a dramaturg, and I've coached auditions at levels ranging from school plays to professional work. I actively coach actors all over LA--and, now, around the country via video. I love working with actors of all experience levels, but I also enjoy working with non-performers who are looking to feel more confident in their voice and speech skills.

Extremely understanding, helpful and an overall wonderful teacher to work with. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to break down a dialect and really dive deep into the finer details to help you stand out against others.

Erin is amazing when it comes to encouraging and teaching the intricacy of the language. Her style of teaching with your practice will help you reach your goals.

Erin knows her stuff! I wanted to learn an accent for a character I'm playing in my Dungeons and Dragons game and she helped me out immensely. I cannot recommend her enough for any accent work you might need.
