Frank Gerace made an excellent editing of my rather complex book entitled âResonance. My Journey Beyond Ultrasound. It is over five hundred pages and a story of a holocaust survivor, an immigrant and a scientist of ultrasonics. Frank handled the copy editing with ease both the historical and the scientific aspects of this writing. He sometimes changed a phrase or two; in these cases he used the MSWord comment facility to alert me to any edits of grammar or style and in any uncertain situation, he always consulted with me leaving the decision to me, the writer. He double checked place names on Google and even corrected my French and Spanish spelling. His efforts turned my work into a much more readable form. His editing exceeds all my expectation. If there is an award for editing I definitely would nominate Frank for the GRAND PRIX.
Julie is a really good teacher. She is very through with helping to get the proper pronunciation. Although I am far from fluent in spanish, I have received many compliments from spanish speakers regarding the fact that I don't speak with a heavy accent. She is also very patient and goes at the student's pace (I work full time and have 3 children so my learning spanish is really just a fun hobby).
Madeline was very professional and highly enjoyable to work with . she helped us a lot and thanks to her we learned a lot about marketing and growth strategies . We are looking forward to do more business with her .
I studied Spanish here for 2 months and I stopped cause I should move to another state. Professor Nelson always ready for the class and very energetic and talented teacher. I learned really fast here and I really liked her way to teach because you will remember most of the things even you don't study or practice a lot. I work 9-6 pm Monday to Friday so took class at 7:00 to 8:00 pm once a week and had no enough time to practice or study. But I REMEMBER most of the things I learned here. Please have trial class first and decide after. She is the most enthusiastic and wonderful teacher I ever met before. Thank you for professor Nelson again!
Maritza has been an outstanding youth mentor as long as I have known her. She has the remarkable gift of uplifting people and shining a positive light over everyone she meets.

Isabel has taught both of my girls Spanish and French since they were toddlers (over 10 years!). She still teaches them and they understand everything in both languages and have fantastic accents. She is perfectly bilingual in both languages due to her Spanish family and upbringing in Paris. She is unfailingly cheerful, loving, energetic, and positive. We love her so much that she is like a part of our family. My kids talk about wanting to live in Europe and they always get an easy A+ in language class in tough private schools. She is amazing.

Judith is an amazing person who is dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate in her field of study. She is very approachable and is always willing to go above and beyond to help you understand things. I learned a lot from Judys coaching and would highly recommend her for all your language and other speech related concerns.
Angie is very professional and always punctual. I hired her as my accent reduction coach and I can tell the difference when I pronounce words in English. I take online classes with her and we use Skype for our lessons. She provides all the materials for our lessons and has a flexible work schedule. She also proved to be prepared for every lesson and is very organized. If you are not sure about taking online lessons, let me tell you that online lessons are very convenient, especially during the winter time and you can save money on transportation and time as well. I am pretty sure she is a great tutor for in-person lessons. She is definitely an excellent tutor!
My first language is Spanish, and I speak English, but my accent and my pronunciation wasn't the best. My acting teacher gave me Bernadette's info, and she became my accent reduction teacher. I was able to perform my monologue in class, and I'm able to enunciate a lot better now. The classes were 10 sessions long, and they were extremely helpful. If you have problems with English pronunciation, Bernadette is your girl to go.
Lauren Mack is more than a speech and acting coach, she taught me about life and encouraged me to believe in myself and play those challenging roles that require so much work with the accent. She encouraged me to have faith in my work and always believe that I can achieve my goals. Her talent inspired me to work harder, to embrace my roots and who I am, and to put it all in the character. She showed me that accent is not a limitation is part of your life experience and you can use it as a weapon in the acting industry.

I was very nervous about correcting my accent. I feel like it's part of me ,but at the same time I want to be understood and not looked at like I am not smart when I speak at work. Michele made it easy and fun. I thought it would be impossible to correct my accent at my age and stage of the game, but I was wrong and Michele helped me learn to speak with confidence. She was the most expensive Speach Theropist, but she is worth it. There is a saying"You get what you pay for!" I don't think that the saying applies to everything, but in this case is really does.
I had really awesome classes with her. Her class was so helpful for reducing my asian accent and correct wrong pronunciation. she is a voice trainer too. so, her approching to teach ESL student is different to other ESL teachers. I mean totally helpful and effective class to improve english.. :)

I can help you reduce greatly your foreign accent. I help you understand how the sounds of English are made, so that you can remember to make them correctly.
