Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: ABOUT ATTENTION: I am currently not taking any new students. If you have any questions at all, I am happy to talk with you. My online website program is very thorough and can help. Please visit at SimpleAccentReduction.com One of the biggest issues students tell me they are having problems with, is one of CONFIDENCE in speaking English. Not knowing how to make the correct sounds can make one unsure of oneself. I teach pronunciation of English so that you can have CONFIDENCE AND CAN BE EASILY UNDERSTOOD. I teach how to make the sounds of English. and This is a complement for ESL learners and is essential to speaking the language effectively. I began teaching English speech instruction in 1991 and have worked with students from over 60 countries and over 25 different languages. I always work to positively encourage my students while guiding them to improve on how they sound. Standard American Speech is taught in top acting schools in the US. I simplified what I learned and work to give the essentials that a person needs to learn to speak English clearly and correctly. I give real goals to the student while pushing them to reach new and higher goals. I created a workbook that goes over all of the basics you need to know and apply to speak English better. I tailor the lessons to each students' needs while making sure all of the basic sounds are mastered. This technique also strengthens the voice and all of the muscles used in speaking. Different languages use different muscles to speak their language and I teach exercises that train all of the facial muscles in order to easily speak all of the sounds of English. It results in GREATER CONFIDENCE IN SPEAKING ENGLISH. It is extremely helpful for anyone of any nationality and A MUST FOR ACTORS AND PUBLIC SPEAKERS. Please check out my website for more information. I "unlock the door" to how to make American English sounds. I enjoy helping students to find ways to make a speech or script stronger and more expressive, be it using the sounds and rhythms of the language, changes in pitch or finding which words to push to create the effect one wants to create. Communication is an essential part of living. It is also an art form and communicating effectively can be the difference between success and failure. Feel free to ask questions, I'm here to help!

Judy is an awesome teacher. She is flexible and very patient. I love to have lessons with her. She even works with me outside the lesson time if I have any questions. The lessons are fun, easy to follow and her techniques help me, as a non native English speaker, improve my accent at a noticeable level in a short period. Amazing! If you want to improve the way you speak, she is exactly the one you are looking for. I feels so lucky that I found her. Thank you Judy.

Working with Judy was life changing! I always knew I needed to work on my verbal communication, but I wasn't sure which area to target. Judy knew how to help me within the first few minutes of our introduction, and told me I would see changes if I gave the effort to finish the lesson plan. She was 100% right! She totally enhanced my speaking ability which has given me more confidence in the work place and beyond!

It’s simply great to have Judy as a speaking coach. Her lessons and her explanation behind the phonetics of different words are very helpful. She is very sincere and cordial which I really wanted. I am taking the language course for the first time and am enjoying the whole process very much. She also provides tips for the public speaking from time to time which I find super helpful as well. She is very flexible and considerate when it comes to scheduling a class or the fee per class. I sincerely recommend her for the speaking coach.
