I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!
Mr. Messina is terrific. I've enjoyed my lessons with him and his knowledge is impressive. My Italian family told me he has a great accent.
Great teacher, helped me with my accent and an audition! Highly recommend !
She is an amazing professional. I loved her help with the language improvement, pronunciation, reducing accent. She is funny and nice, making the learning process joyful.
Tracy is an amazing accent reduction coach. She is very caring and hard working. Every week she has new material and she will send you recordings of your session and homework the very next day. Very helpful teacher. I can hear my improvement every week.
I am a CFA from China. I used to learn English pronunciation from Elizabeth in LA. She is a very experienced teacher specialized in accent reduction. Her students are from various countries and background. She understands the exact English pronouncing difficulties caused by different mother tongue. Actually she is also a great singer. So she has profound and professional knowledge about pronunciation theory and vocal practice. Her class is very helpful and interesting. I hope more students could have chances to take her classes.
I hired Stephanie to improve my English because I'm French and I learned English in high school long time ago. She helped me to correct my accent, I learned the English grammar with her. She is very patient, she takes the time to explain me everything, she is very punctual and sweet. Learning English with her was very great and helpful. I would hire her again.
English is my sixth language. Before I worked with Linda, people had a hard time understanding me. She helped me reduce my accent. She also helped me improve my speaking, reading, and writing skills. She is an excellent tutor. She is also kind and patient.
Working with Jamison was so helpful and a total pleasure. As an Australian, having to audition with a specific regional American accent can be pretty intimidating, but Jamison broke it down in a logical, easy to understand way. She recorded samples of her speaking in the accent that I could refer back to, and kept the lines of communication open once our session was over. I can't recommend her highly enough. - CLAUDIA O'DOHERTY, ACTRESS / WRITER Working with Ms. Bryant was an incredibly satisfying experience. Not only did she completely grasp my needs in our sessions, she was able to help me address them and achieve the results I desired. She also gave me concrete vocal tools and exercises that I've continued using. She is an intuitive and wonderful coach and I highly recommend working with her. -LUCY ENGELMAN, ACTRESS / VOICE OVER ARTIST / WRITER
I am Chinese and Joanna is my first English teacher in USA. I have studied with her for more than 1 year already. She's nice and patient, very professional.

My English accent is improved a lot, sounds much better, very appreciated! I will keep on studying with her! 😊

Learn French. Reduce your native French accent or other accents. Hello, I'm Rafaella, a 24-year actress born and raised in Paris France, but have lived in the US for 15 years. I master both French and English, both without an accent. I have done a lot of French tutoring for middle-aged school kids when I was living in Miami for the Carver Middle School students and for 3 years at the RAICES Summer Camp. I absolutely love working with students and artists. Because I have no accent when speaking in English, I sound American. Especially here in LA, a lot of fellow students at my acting studio always ask how I got rid of my accent. I believe that with my advantage of having lived in both countries and mastered both languages and accents, I can more clearly help those who want to lessen or get rid of their accents permanently or coach for auditions. My most recent coaching was on set for French actress Pauline Bourquelot in the Austrian Feature film "Billionaire" by Director Edgar Honetschlager. My teaching style is very tailored to my individual students. I try to work with them to see which method is best for the students, worksheets, visuals, conversation. I also incorporate material from past lessons so we do not forget what we have learned and practice! Many people think reducing your accent or learning French is too complicated or difficult, but all you have to do is be excited and willing to learn. I get so happy too when you get it right! Ask Pauline! My rate is $40/hour for French tutoring. Please inquire regarding accent reduction. Let's get started. I'm looking forward to meeting you! Merci. Rafaella

I specialize in working with students who speak English but want to achieve a more native sound and take their English to the next level! Many of my students are professionals from Europe, Asia and Middle Eastern countries, including India. In fact, I do specialize in working with clients from India and Spanish speaking countries and can help pinpoint general and specific areas, where we need to focus in order to minimize accents. All my classes are one-on-one and personalized to your needs. It would be my pleasure to work with you. My lessons help ones to understand why Americans sound the way they do and how to sound more like a native English speaker. I live in Central America (which allows me to offer my lessons at a discount) and give lessons via Skype. Lessons last for 45 minutes and are $23 per session. Here is a bonus: If you schedule more than one session each week, I can reduce the price to $20 per session. I also provide you with videos, games, resources etc. to help you improve in between classes. One of the huge advantages of my lessons is constant, specific feedback. Here is a sample of what we do in between classes that can target problem areas, give you specific feedback on where to work on and how, as well as encouragement to keep going as you are seeing progress. If it sounds good, please let me know when you are available, and I can do an introductory class, so you can see if you like my teaching style. I've attached a language goals sheet that we can work on together when you have time. Additionally, the introductory class is a full hour. If you don't like what you're learning after the first 30 minutes, please just let me know, and we can stop and the class is free. My guarantee is that you will start sounding differently from the first class. Thanks again. Have a great day! Ron Binay
