Accent Reduction for non-native English speakers (USA or UK English)

Welcome! I specialize in aiding non-native English speaking professionals with accent reduction. I can help you learn either the American or British English accent. I'm also able to aid a client in public speaking skills if desired.

I am a native American English speaker (born and raised in the USA), and I am a professional private voice instructor. I have several years experience teaching languages and specialize in English diction. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education and therefore have the ability to cater my lessons exactly to each individual student's needs. I specialize in developing a keen, discerning ear, and connecting that identification of sound to slight physical alterations that can make a big difference for you in your daily professional and social life.

I can help you communicate more articulately and efficiently. First I help you achieve the correct recognition and production of the speech sounds necessary for English. I will then help you use correct intonation patterns, stress, and rhythm in conversational speech. Accent Reduction will help you speak more clearly, freely, and directly.

Feel free to send me a quick message, and we can set up a lesson. I look forward to meeting you!

Great teacher that helped me a lot in a short amount of time!
She is very thorough and professional. No time wasted and a lot of work done in 45 minutes.
I hold a BM in Secondary Choral Music Education from Brigham Young University, wherein I was awarded the Barlow Music Endowment. I have been a private voice instructor, choral director, and professional opera and choral singer for over 12 years, and have taught throughout the United States and France both privately and at specialist schools such as the Children's Choir of Paris. I have performed with premier vocal ensembles on tour throughout Europe, as well as with the 8-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus. I have over twelve years of experience conducting adult and children's choirs in various community and ecclesiastical capacities. I offer singing lessons (classical and contemporary) to all levels and ages as well as musicality, ear-training, diction, sight-reading, dictation, and performance skills. I am patient and nurturing. I understand how daunting vocal lessons can be, and will work at building your self-confidence as well as a good technique. As your vocal instructor, I will help you to set goals that develop your unique instrument and bring out your own personality. I believe that singing is an important form of communication, and will use my experience to help you to deliver a performance with integrity and meaning. Above all, it must always be a joyful experience.

ENGLISH LESSONS, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years teaching experience
I am a qualified teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently making research on the best methods for teaching a second language (such as English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to be taught by a qualified English speaker. :-) I adapt my lessons to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and listening. I usually use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is an excellent way for the student to acquire new expressions/vocabulary. I also give exercises based on grammar and make sure to apply what we have learned in real life context. If you wish, we can also work on specific topics such as business. I am also qualified for the IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or the correction of written work. I can deliver the lessons online if required. Don't hesitate to contact me for further information. I'm looking forward to meeting you. :-)

Maths + Personal Development + Wellbeing: helping every student achieve their own personal greatness
Every student needs assistance to rebound after the pandemic and lockdowns. I have the expertise to get students back on track. I have tutored students from the most prestigious schools in the country as well as students internationally. Some of the students I have worked with have attended world renowned institutions like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard & MIT. I have delivered talks at schools on student success and have authored four books on topics such as productivity, time-management, self-discipline & confidence. I have founded the first online personal development academy for teenagers (Nexgen Teens) based around a holistic approach to learning called The Nexgen Method which I created. I also create wellbeing & mental health resources for young people at schools and universities. My role is not only in preparing students for the future but it is giving them the confidence to shape it. My objective is to inspire, motivate and cultivate ambitious young students who have the ability to identify and fulfil their aspirations. I combine five interlinked components that, if worked on in tandem, can drastically change a students life for the better and aid them in becoming the pioneers of the future. These 5 strands are: 1) Mindset 2) Wellbeing Management 3) Study Skills 4) Life Skills 5) Leadership Development I place a special emphasis on personal development and this is what makes me different. I believe it is possible to equip students with the mindset and skillset to radically alter their lives for the better. Academic tuition is essential because all students learn at a different pace and some may feel intimidated by the thought of asking questions in class. Therefore, some pupils often get left behind and spend the whole academic year desperately trying to catch up. When a pupil approaches education with the preconceived notion that they are not bright enough then this makes academic success neigh on impossible. Therefore, I make it my first aim to instil confidence in all students. After this, great academic strides can be made. It is insufficient to just teach students the ideas and concepts they are dealing with at any given time. My instruction goes beyond this by including study skills such as note-taking, memory improvement techniques, speed-reading, and effective revision into its program. These skills will stay with pupils and enlighten their entire academic tenure. Finally, my role is also about offering guidance to students in terms of their current issues, academic future and potential career paths. My educational system is a result of years of lessons I myself learned progressing through the academic arena all the way to university level. In addition, it encompasses all the research I have conducted in self-improvement, effective study skills and successful leadership. These methods have been tested and proven successful. I hope to impart this knowledge to the next generation and watch them do great things with it. I am confident in improving the grades of every student I work with with a tailored academic plan. Yours sincerely, Ash

Learn the language of love with me _ italiano per tutti
Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses. I hope to pass on to my students my passion and enthusiasm, thanks to the experience I made at university, where I studied ancient Greek and Latin, then working as a teacher in high school, and gaining the DITALS, which is a diploma to teach Italian to foreigners. I have experience with students of different levels and age, and I gear each lesson towards my students' goals and preferences.

Quick English Speaking, Reading & Confidence Building
Hi, I specialized in English teaching for more than 10 years & have been training many internationals in my 7 full years of being in educational institutes & NGOs. I had the priviledge to teach English in Bangkok, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Portugal and Poland I have run more than 70 education workshops/training. I have both TESOL & TEFL teaching certificate. My lessons starts with a casual conversation to get a feeling of my students level. It will then be a series of topic of conversations that I will go through. My aim is to make my students as casual and normal as I can so it's a natural conversation no matter what level my students at. This is to build their comfortability to make mistakes and be OK with it, so they can learn faster. Grammar and vocabulary will come during and after I sense a confidence in my students. My techniques are adopted from years of working in international education organisations with underprivileged and illiterate groups to fast track their ability to master and converse in English. So let me know if you would like to learn with me, you can even give it a try with half the price for the first class :)
