They all mean the same thing: helping you be understood all the time. Or helping you sound like you were born and raised in the U.S. 

Using the International Phonetic Alphabet (the IPA), I offer one-on-one lessons in the Greater Boston area. (Please note: The student does not need to know or learn the IPA to benefit from instruction. I simply refer to it as a learning tool.)

Here are my fees for a 1 1/2 hour lesson:

$100* for initial assessment and lesson. The first half of this session is assessment, and the second half is a lesson addressing two or three priority speech sounds.

$100 per lesson, or you can prepay four or more lessons and pay just $95 per lesson (after initial assessment/lesson).

 * If this fee is prohibitive, please talk with me about the possibility of a lower fee for you.

I generally recommend twice weekly lessons for students getting started with accent modification, but that is your choice, of course. For most students, progress happens quickly – within two months – and lessons continue beyond that for several months to a couple of years, depending on goals and learning process.
