Accent Modification for non-native English speakers

I am a certified and trained Speech-Language Pathologist with extensive experience in pronunciation training. I offer customized individual and group pronunciation training of Standard American English. Group sessions can include up to 5 people and are great for friends or coworkers. Group discounts apply as well.

Through a phonetic analysis, I will identify aspects of your pronunciation that differ from the American English dialect and address each sound directly focusing on accurate lip, tongue, and jaw placement. I focus on the clear and natural pronunciation of Standard American English so you can be better understood no matter the situation.

You will be provided with exercises and practice assignments to complete at home in between sessions to ensure progress is made in a timely and efficient manner. Individualized accent modification exercises will also be provided once you have completed the program to ensure the maintenance of the skills you learned.

Our sessions can be in the privacy of your own home or in a private room at your office. Or, you can come to one of my offices in Zurich. Send me a quick message now to for no commitment to determine how I can help you.

Extra information

I can come to your home or office or conduct our sessions online.

About Me

I am the founder of The Speech Therapist Switzerland and have over ten years of experience, including working with both monolingual and multi-lingual clients.

With my Speech and Language Pathology degree, I have expert knowledge regarding the anatomy and physiology of speech movements as well as the importance of suprasegmental properties, including stress, rhythm, and intonation, and the vital influence they have on pronunciation. Clients will become empowered to utilize this knowledge in their accent modification sessions to neutralize and modify their speech.

In addition to my speech background, I am certified to teach English as a second language, having earned the CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) in 2018. As part of that program, I designed lessons for both pre-intermediate and intermediate level individuals targeting English language skills and focusing on accurate and natural pronunciation.

Bachelor of Science in Applied Learning and Development from the University of Texas
Master of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Houston

Experience / Qualifications

Certified Instructor for the Compton - Pronouncing English as a Second Language (C-PESL)

Alicia
English course NATIVE SPEAKER graduate from England, all levels (beginner to university), 5 years of experience.
I am a graduate teacher from England, I have a BA and MA in Linguistics (English). I am currently researching the best methods for teaching a second language (like English) to adults and children. I have been teaching children and adults for 5 years, from beginner level to university level. The best way to improve in a new language is to take lessons with a qualified, native teacher. :-) I adapt my lessons according to the level and needs of the student. We can work on grammar, reading, speaking and comprehension. I generally use the news in English to encourage the student to express themselves, correct pronunciation while reading and it is a great way for the student to acquire new expressions / vocabulary. I also give grammar-based exercises and make sure to apply what we have seen in the real-life context. If you wish, we can also work on more specific subjects 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. :-)
