Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: EXPERT ACCENT REDUCTION * $45 for a 50 minute class * $200 for five classes EXPERIENCED ENGLISH TEACHER *Don’t settle for average.* I have over 15 years of experience teaching students at all levels from all over the world. EXPERIENCED ACCENT COACH *Good pronunciation is the first step to being understood * I hold a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics. I am trained to hear pronunciation mistakes and find their cause. Then I’ll patiently show you how to make each sound sound perfect! I LISTEN Each class begins with a 15-minute checkup where I just listen to your English. You can tell me about your week, your work, your family…ANYTHING! Meanwhile, I am assessing your English (grammar, vocabulary AND pronunciation), noting your mistakes, and planning for your improvement. Based on that day’s check-up, we fix that day’s problems. That way lessons are always relevant. GRAMMAR MADE SIMPLE We fix only what is broken. You don’t have to study the whole English grammar. I spot your mistakes and explain in very simple terms why it’s a mistake. Then we fix it. CONSTANT VOCABULARY BUILDING I am skilled at assessing a student’s vocabulary level and adjusting mine just ‘one step higher’. That way, new words come at an easy rate to learn. ACCENT REDUCTION SPECIALIST Unlike most ESL teachers, I hold a master’s degree in Applied Linguistics (UT Arlington, 1995). In other words, I have the training to help my students with their accent and pronunciation. Good pronunciation is the first step to being understood. FREE CLASS RECORDINGS Upon request, I make a recording of each class and provide it to you free of charge. That way, you can listen and repeat anything you missed, anytime, anywhere! PERSONALIZED PRACTICE VIDEO Upon request, after each class, I make a practice video just for you that covers that day’s lessons. PERSONALIZED HOMEWORK The homework covers only what you need. I will check the homework, note the mistakes, and help you improve. LEARNER CENTERED My teaching style is learner-centered and learner directed. This means that each session is for you and not for me. My lesson plan is always flexible. If you want to do pronunciation drills for an hour, I will be patient. If you want to lighten up and have a relaxed conversation, I will accommodate. If you want something in-between, just let me know! SAFE AND RELAXED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT At the various schools where I have taught, I've always achieved high marks in building student rapport and setting the right environment for learning. Mistakes are teaching and learning opportunities and you are free to make as many as you want. EXCELLENT THUMBTACK REVIEWS I have a perfect FIVE-STAR rating over 45 reviews. FULLY ONLINE! Our work is - FULLY ONLINE. We work over video-call. This allows for face-to-face at a comfortable and safe distance. Our material is on a HUGE on-line whiteboard. We both see and write on the same board. Your whiteboard is available 24/7 while my student.

Before finding Greg Morris, English Accent Reduction Specialists, I had been very stressed when my American friends did not understand what I was saying in English. I could read and write English, but. I had problems with speaking English, specially my pronunciation and accent. It was hard for a native English speaker to understand my strong Asian accent English. But 3 months after I started to learn English from Greg, my friends said “Your English has improved more than before!” Greg definitely helped me to improve my English. He taught me how to pronounce each vowel and consonant sounds, showing me the mouth and tongue position through the Skype. And the class always starts off our conversation, which makes me relax and comfortable. Not only my English has improved but also I enjoy the class. Highly recommended!
