    Gabriel is a terrific accent teacher. He has a system to isolate most problematic sounds and works on each one until they sound as if produced by native speaker. I made a huge progress even after the first lesson.

    “I have taken lessons with other instructors but things became redundant. Gabriel gave me an incredible amount of new insights. He appears to have a very good system, even for people who have had no prior lesson experiences. I am very excited to practice the new exercises he introduced to me. He is a great instructor. I am excited about practicing all that he has taught me already!”

    “Gabriel’s method of visualizing English sounds in the form of a map proved to be extremely helpful and efficient. No longer I am lost in a seemingly endless universe of foreign noises! The sound map is a concise and precise tool that enables me to target just the right sounds. Even when I fail to produce the exact match for a native pronunciation, I end up sufficiently close to be easily understood. I cannot stress enough the benefits of having a clear idea of how a word is supposed to sound. All too often, non-native speakers fail to pronounce something correctly not because they can’t do it but simply because they don’t know how to. Gabriel’s approach eliminates the uncertainty about what you should do to sound native. Knowing what to do doesn’t equal being able to immediately do it. But it’s a solid foundation on which you can build your new pronunciation. The pronunciation that will always be only as good as the efforts you are willing to put in it. “

    Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasnt fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Cant beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!
