This is a special English class focused on phonetics and accenting. Students will be taught how to be aware of sounds and how they're produced, as well as the differences between their own first language and English. I will show you and have you practice the "native" mouth movements, what sounds and feelings to pay attention to, and most importantly, how to develop your body's own muscle memory to get those movements right every time.
I am a native American English speaker with experience teaching learners of English as their second language. I've taught all skill levels, from beginners to more advanced students. Many of my classes, coincidentally, have centered around English phonetics; I've been asked many times "how to sound more like a native speaker." I have successfully taught several of my students methods to practice and reduce their accent.
One of the brightest and most talented people I've known for years, whom I can vouch for as an extremely effective and well-rounded teacher. They served as president of the Video Game Development Club at our university and regularly gave very informative presentations and tutorials on the game development process, helping many--myself included--both learn and cultivate a true passion for making games. They're very skilled in breaking down complex subject materials and explaining each individual component in a way that's easy to understand. Their teaching style is very personable and really makes you love what you are learning. I strongly recommend them as a teacher!
Evelyn is a fantastic teacher for the world of coding and video game development. I've known her for roughly 4 years, ever since she was the president of the South Alabama Video Game Development Club, probably even before that. She's very hands on with her lessons, as expected for game development, and she's very straightforward with her teaching. I highly recommend her.
Evelyn has been very patient with me, especially with the *hundreds* of questions I've asked her and has been such a great teacher. She is very clear with her explanations and makes it even seem less intimidating and super fun! (which if you've ever seen aftereffects, you'll know how scary it seems)
10/10 definitely going to her again if I need more help ️
Evelyn was kind enough to accommodate a last minute request, and she was very knowledgeable and patient. She really saved my day!
