A linguistics and ESL instructor teaches students in accent modification/reduction in online studies

Methodology

Accent work is very individualized which is why one to one tutorial style teaching works very well. Each student presents their own unique background and challenges in pronouncing English sounds. As I listen to your accent and style in communicating, I develop a unique plan tailored to your individual needs. From there, we work together on recognizing your unique speech patterns and how they can be adjusted and practice those adjustments through repetition and other exercises.

Background

I am a linguistics post- graduate with teaching experience in linguistics, and in ESL, particularly in the field of pronunciation studies and accent work. I have worked all over the world with students of various language backgrounds, English levels, and ages.
