Speech-language pathologist and former French major provides accent reduction services for English

Methodology

I approach accent reduction through determining the differences in English pronunciation and your native language. I assess your speech production skills and target sounds and stress patterns that contribute to your overall intelligibility. I employ a lot of exercises to help the new word productions become natural for you. I like to use things that are of importance to the student (whether related to your hobbies or career advancement needs).

Background

I have 6 years of experience in providing speech therapy to children. I also have 2 semesters of experience providing accent reduction services to adults. I have a bachelor's degree in French and Linguistics and a Master's degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I love to travel and learn about new languages and cultures.
