I am a professional opera singer and have studied diction and languages for 12 years. I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reach your communication goals in speaking American English! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others. I like to think of this more as "accent acquisition" as opposed to "accent reduction" - we all have an accent! My goal is to help you speak English clearly and comfortably so that you can communicate with others with confidence.

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

I would highly recommend Jeanne to anyone looking to reduce and modify their accent. She is very good at teaching and showing the subtle nuances between sounds and providing feedback on what sound is produced vs how it should sound. I wish I had her as a teacher long ago when I first started learning English!

SHE IS AN AMAZING TEACHER OMG
Karolina
Jeanne is a great teacher. Whenever I fail to get the right pronunciation, she is being very supportive and passionate. She knows how to explicitly explain the way of pronouncing sounds and put it into practice. Since I started taking classes with her, my accent has improved so much that even people around started noticing it. Also, she is a wonderful person, who can hold a conversation and laugh with you. Jeanne definitely became one of the best teachers I've ever had.
Highly recommend Jeanne as a teacher.
