public speaking coaching & Communication skills
Learn an 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 natural 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 American English pronunciation program for any global English speaker 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'll improve your speech skills in no time. You get to choose the pace, scheduling, and intensity.
Think of it as learning a new muscle memory that you can turn on and off, so you can pull your general American accent out of your toolbox and use it whenever you need it.
public speaking skills
Speak clearly, confidently & passionately
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 speech patterns should be as dynamic as you are.
These lessons include exercises to get a fuller voice, to boost confidence, to be more concise, to edit yourself, to improvise, and more. If you have a specific speech or presentation to prepare, we can certainly work on that as well.
Sessions can also be customized outside of the 10-class package if you have more acute needs; contact me to speak further.
