I love getting to know my clients, learning about their culture, their work, their goals, their successes, and their frustrations.
I love accents!
Although we all have accents – I speak Standard North American English with an accent from Columbus, Ohio and speak Spanish with a Mexican accent, sometimes accents may create a barrier to communication. If listeners have trouble understanding the message, accent modification may be needed.
I work individually, one-on-one with clients from around the world who want to learn how to communicate more clearly. We meet face-to-face in a convenient location in Columbus, Ohio. I have very flexible hours, trying to accommodate everyone’s schedule.
In our first meeting, my clients will talk about their goals and I talk about what I can offer. Then, I give two initial diagnostics; one is reading a passage and the other is speaking freely. Based on these diagnostics, I analyze the pronunciation, the phrasing, the intonation, the clarity, etc. and identify what communication obstacles exist. I then formulate a plan to work on those issues that may interfere. I want to empower my clients to speak English more clearly and to be more confident in their interactions.
If you are not in the Central Ohio area, contact me about a session on Zoom.
My Commitment To You
If you have the desire to change, and the willingness to practice and work hard, I promise to provide you with the knowledge, the skills, and the support needed to achieve the cultural and linguistic goals you pursue. I also promise to make the process enjoyable!
