About me

THE ART OF AMERICAN CONVERSATION

American English with a clear, neutral accent is the preferred language of global business.

*Accent Reduction Expert*

I am from sunny California and come from a long family line of professors.

My BIO is unique:

*I have professional training in Accent Reduction

*I specialize in Intermediate to Advanced speakers

*MASTER TEFL TESOL Certification | 20+ years experience

*I have been selected to be a presenter at multiple International TESOL (Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages) conferences.

*I am professionally trained to customize lessons according to your NATIVE language, this is the KEY to success.

I can show you where to place your tongue, teeth and lips to make the different sounds in American English.
