I am a licensed speech and language pathologist with specialized training and certification in accent modification training. I have been providing accent and communication training services since 2003 and have been a practicing Speech Language Pathologist since 1998. I am certified by the American Speech Language and Hearing Association. Over the years, I have assisted hundreds of individuals from varied backgrounds to improve their communication skills. I have integrated my extensive experience as a speech pathologist in the medical setting with my expertise in accent training to develop customized programs that address the specific needs of accented speakers in all professional settings.
I will carefully assess your current speech patterns and help you quickly identify the specific things that are making your speech different from Standard American English (SAE). I care about YOUR communication goals and will design lessons that help you reach them a quickly as possible.
I had Jodi as my accent modification instructor for 2 different seasons. She came to my work place as scheduled. Jodi is an excellent instructor. She did a lot of effort to make sure that I succeed in accent reduction because I had a heavy accent. During and after the training, my colleagues noticed significant changes in my speech, they started understanding me easily, there are no more "repeat again please" or "what do you mean". My speaking confidence increased tremendously after attending Jodi's training. She made a big difference in my life. I have since been promoted to supervisory level at my job.+ Read More
Jodi is amazing. Her classes were very helpful to identify specific pronunciation improvement for our unique individual speech. The classes helped increasing the self awareness of our own accent and provided tools to correct / improve it. Thank you.
It was very helpful when I was in her class
