College ESL instructor and native speaker of American English offering accent reduction coaching

Methodology

I always start with your needs, objectives, and preferred styles of learning. I also like to incorporate content that is of interest to you and try to design activities that are authentic in nature. Accent reduction requires focus and practice with individual word pronunciation, sound variations in connecting word groups, and the overall music of the language. That being said, I like to use songs as practice models in order to help you produce more native-like speech.

Background

I have a Masters degree in TESOL/Applied Linguistics from Teachers College, Columbia University and teach ESL classes at a college in NYC to students transitioning to academic life in the USA. As a native speaker of American English with a keen ear, I also enjoy coaching nonnative speakers of English who are working on reducing their accents. I had spent many years as a financial industry professional here in NYC before switching careers to the field of education, and so I also like helping nonnative speakers improve their business English/communication skills.

As a language learner myself, I have studied Italian, Russian, and French both formally and informally, and truly appreciate the challenges inherent in communicating in other languages.
