Spanish-speaking, Master's educated accent and dialect reduction coach in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Methodology

I teach a wide range of students, specializing in corporate oration and long-term speech flexibility training. This means that you would be an excellent candidate for my class if you are:

- Giving a public speech you're nervous about
- Finding yourself unable straining to communicate clearly during conversations in your second language
- Experiencing raspy or compromised voice
- Preparing for a job interview in your second language

Clients preparing for a specific event will go over their material with me will:

- Receive coaching on their rhetorical and oratory methods that only a classically trained actor can provide.
- Learn to soften or alter their dialect on key sounds to assist comprehension and comfort in the listener
- Receive editing and revision assistance on a fully written speech as needed
- Meet one to three times

Long-term term clients working to correct vocal health problems stemming from their speech or to increase flexibility in their dialect will:

- Learn to systematize and organize sounds in writing
- Practice "good use" voice and speech techniques to allow full expression of the authentic voice
- Meet on a consistent weekly to monthly basis

Background

Educated at Princeton (BA in English) and Brown University (Masters in Acting), I am a professional dialect coach, actor, writer, and tutor specializing in communication theory, oration and expressiveness in the English language. I have taught American and non-American dialects to many actors and students, and helped dozens of people age five to 65 to express themselves more clearly and candidly.
