I've worked with Ellen Conovor for more than half a year to reduce my Chinese accent and she is amazing! Before the sessions, even I can get by in daily communication after living in US for a few years, I wasn't happy with my accent: I felt like there is a lot of space to improve but I was kind of stuck, and it's not going to get better even with time. Actually, I wasn't sure if it will be helpful given my previous experience on group classes of ESL but I decided to give this kind of one-on-one session a try. It turned out to be a great decision I've made! Ellen impressed me a lot from the beginning to the end by being very professional and responsive. After the initial assessment, we worked on each pronunciation I was having trouble with, figured out the problem and the way to correct it, and applied it in words, sentences, monologues, and conversation until it can stick there. Ellen also have a lot of effective strategies to guide me to find the right way to pronounce. She also genuinely cares about her clients, which I appreciate a lot. She is great in so many ways, that's why I would rather drive for half an hour for her session each week instead of taking it locally where I don't need to do any driving. Overall, I absolutely enjoyed the experience with Ellen and am very happy to see my progress. I highly recommend her!
