WHAT I CAN OFFER
Everyone speaks with an accent. They are a normal, natural aspect of spoken language that can reflect your regional background or national origin. They are not a speech and language disorder. However, they can create a barrier in communication if others have difficulty understanding you. Accent modification is aimed at changing your accent – as much or as little as you want – in order to achieve your personal and professional goals by improving your communication in spoken English. An initial evaluation will identify the ways in which your unique manner of speaking English deviates from the standard, and a personal lesson plan will be created with goals tailored to helping you speak English in a way that is more easily understood by others.
I have the vision of helping people of all ages and language backgrounds to improve their communication skills and quality of life.
