Personal or small group with trainer
Learn an American English accent through private or small group sessions from an instructor who wants to help you achieve your unique goals, whether you want to learn a completely new American English accent, or target select vocabulary in specific situations. Improve your communication without losing your unique culture. Modify your accent and alleviate stressful situations of having to repeat yourself. I synthesize techniques from various approaches, including Mastering Effective English Communication and Compton P-ESL. I have worked with clients from Mexico, China, Ukraine, and the U.S., to name a few. Training is available online or in person at flexible hours designed to fit into your busy schedule.
For individuals who want to work on their accent independently, I have created the Polished Speech Accent Training Guide coming soon on this website. This resource contains practice exercises at the word, phrase, and sentence level for all the phonemes (speech sounds) of the General American English dialect. There are three options for accessing these materials:
- Online through a user account at polishedspeech.com
- Downloadable EPUB with integrated audio
- Downloadable PDF (audio sold separately)
Materials will be available late May 2021.
Accent Training services are available online to clients worldwide via a secure web-based platform
In-person appointments are only available within the Greater Houston area
Accent Training Materials in development...coming in late July - early August!
