Lesson Details

Accent Reduction

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Increase your confidence in presenting and public speaking by pronouncing words more clearly and articulately with my stress-free speaking and pronunciation lessons.

I have been helping students neutralize accents through targeted pronunciation and articulation practice. Students can expect to practice verbal communication with a focus on pronunciation techniques that target their unique focus areas such as problems pronouncing "b" and "p", "l" and "r", the variations of "s", "t" and "th", intonation, syllables and sound clusters.

Teaching since:

I have a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). I work with adult learners to help them communicate in English effectively and confidently. I have experience working with complete beginners and intermediate to more advanced speakers of English.

Students can expect each lesson to be tailored to their individual language learning needs and preferred learning styles. Focus is placed on getting ample speaking practice and practice exercises to practice and solidify newly acquired knowledge. I have experience working with business professionals, college students and seniors.

Through stimulating, comfortable private lessons, I help learners find their voice and a desire to continually develop their communication skills. Tutoring is an extremely rewarding experience and I love being able to facilitate learning. I'm always inspired by my learners' growth and personal commitment to improving.

My goal is to build your confidence in speaking, writing and understanding the English language by improving your grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and sentence fluency in a transparent, stress-free and fun format.

Reach out to me to see how we can work together to get you where you want to be!

Mona is a dedicated, kind, and compassionate teacher! I worked with her on several essays to proof read for me and even with her busy schedule, she would respond right away with such thorough edits! You can tell Mona truly puts a lot of time and dedication into helping others and genuinely cares for others to succeed. I highly recommend Mona for any instructing, tutoring, editing help that you may need!!!

I hired Mona for advanced English language lessons. Mona was exceptionally dedicated to the lessons and I could tell she spends a fair amount of time preparing before each lesson. She is also flexible and fun to deal with.

I would highly recommend Mona to everyone.
