Accent Modification Tutoring

“Can you say that again?”

“I’m sorry – I didn’t get that!”

“What did you say?”

Are you tired of hearing people say these things? Or, worse yet, seeing people smile, pretending to understand what you are saying?  You have important things to communicate, your work requires professional communication, but  people so often just don’t understand you. You know the grammar, but your accent gets in the way.

It doesn’t have to stay this way. You can change this. My accent modification instruction will get you where you need to go: to being understood all the time. One-on-one lessons start with a skillful assessment of your speech patterns, identifying the primary speech sounds (phonemes) you need to change in order to become understood all the time. Each lesson consists of individualized training, practice guidance tailored to your speech needs. I will guide you every step of the way, from diphthongs to standard American “R”s, from syllable stress to a comfortable melody. I will help you hear the differences in sounds so you can produce those sounds you need to make.
