Certified Practitioner of The Lessac Voice and Movement Institute and a candidate for certification.
I own the business license as voice/acting/accent modification coach from City of Los Angeles.
I have experience teaching clients from many cultural backgrounds, including ESL who struggle to melt into the classes and to think in English. I am effective at diagnosing what they need to work on and helping them to achieve their goals. I will bring my energy to the session and encourage clients to share their questions, to express themselves, to respect each other, to work harder and to love language deeply.
My lessons are designed with diverse groups of clients in mind because Los Angeles is a huge cultural melting pot. I will share with international clients how to feel the American energy as themselves without mimicking people through their daily lives. American clients will reconnect with their roots through the exploration.
