My classes are in three different customizable categories.
americanizing your speech
learn a general american accent
First of all.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with your natural accent!
It represents the beautiful culture and language you come from.
However, many people find their accents can pose certain challenges—not being understood at work, discrimination, feelings of language inadequacy or lack of confidence.
This is where I can help!
Together we'll create a tailor-made program to tackle the speech patterns that will make the most difference in your day-to-day life first, using industry-oriented vocabulary, presentations, and improvisation. You get to choose the pace, scheduling, and intensity.
Think of it as learning to turn your American accent on and off, so you can pull it out of your toolbox and use it when you need it.
present with presence & passion
Dynamic speakers have a message from the heart, with clear speech and stories that transport you. They leave you with a lasting feeling. They make us feel our humanity.
I believe your speeches should be as dynamic as you are.
Creating customized sessions, our lessons will reach the root of your issues FIRST.
This may include breath work, weird vocal exercises to get a fuller voice, learning to connect with imagery, understanding psychological blocks, editing your speeches, writing new material, improvising, and more.
I have TONS of exercises to help you affect your listeners.
Let's figure out what it will take for you to be the best speaker you can be. Good news--it may take less than you think.
English, communication, & voice work
At one point I had someone contact me because he was about to get fired due to poor communication. After a couple months of working together, he got promoted instead! I use this as the goal for each client.
1-on-1 sessions may include:
--getting more comfortable and confident speaking English
--understanding how your breath and voice work
--learning to love the sound of your own voice
--training to be more clear and concise
There is no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" for me. My curriculum is customized to each client: catering to your specific needs, goals, and the way YOU work best.
Clients from over 70 countries, including
Doctors, models, HR representatives, stay-at-home moms, fitness instructors, CEOs, nurses, managers, authors, students, security guards, CFOs, small business owners, teachers, web designers, singers, priests, professors, team-building experts, photographers, doulas, programmers, social media influencers, government agents, engineers, salesmen,
who takes classes?
Whether in private sessions or group workshops, we can Zoom in or meet in person to find your team's most effective voice.
how it works
Audrey will ask you some questions about your background, what you struggle with, and what your goals are. Together you craft a course that will efficiently and effectively propel you to where you want to be.
YOU decide the schedule: meeting once a week, every few days, whenever you have an important speaking event, etc.
All sessions are customized to your specific industry, how you learn best, and the level of intensity at which you'd like to work.
With specific instructions for success, it will soon be in reach! You are welcome to record the class on Zoom to help you practice between live sessions. And unlike school, you'll only be given as much homework as you want.
"The many tricks, tips, and methods that Audrey has taught me have been invaluable, and have allowed me to propel my career to another level."
