About this pro

I understand you hate it when people ask you "where are you from?", or when they need to ask you "What?" too many times.

Or maybe you feel you are getting treated differently because of your English. 

I can help you with all that. Ive been teaching for years, not only Business people, but Actors as well. 

My sistem of teaching is very clear, and you will be hearing the difference in a very short time.

    Ignacio is an amazing teacher that will help you with new and effective ways to work on your language skills and to reduce your accent. Have been working with him for about six months and the benefits are clear.

    As an actor working with Ignacio has helped me immensely. I had already worked with different accent coaches so I can say that my accent is very neutral. However since Ignacio is so skilled, he helped me taking my accent a step further. He is an expert figuring out which sounds I pronounced incorrectly due to my mother language. Furthermore, I think that when working with accents it is not only important to know how to pronounce the given words but also to know where to put the stress in a sentence, and Ignacio knew perfectly how to help me with that. Thank you so much for improving my accent and for making the classes so fun!! I'll definitely work with you again!

    English isn’t my first language and because of my accent, people keep asking me about where am I from although I’ve been living in the U.S. for several years. This is very annoying. In addition to that, I’m interested in acting where the proper pronunciation can be a deal-breaker. I’ve been having classes with Ignacio for 2 months and I have very good progress. We work on not only the phonetics but also on other nuances of the proper pronunciation. Ignacio is very passionate about the sounds and really wants to help me to speak better. Our lessons are fun but intense. I learn so many things every time and I’m sure that without his help I wouldn’t get them. It’s a long journey ahead and I’m super excited about my progress. Totally recommend Ignacio to everyone.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First we use the basic excersices that explore each individual sound found in Standard American Speech. 

Once we have identified which sounds are the harder ones for the student, we tackle those by doing excercises of just those sounds.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been studying the International Phonetic Alphabet for years and I now teach at an Acting School were speech is of the utmost importance.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The standard price for a 1 hour class is $100. I provide discounts for 2 students or more at the same time.


How did you get started teaching?

Ive been teaching for years. I started with Theater for Highscools and now I teach professionals. I love being able to see the progress and giving people the tools to feel more confident in the way they express themselves.


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds, from every corner of the world. I even teach other Americans how to improve there standard way of speaking because they are too regional in the way they sound.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

You need to hire someone who is passionate about sounds and about how people use them. It isnt all the same. There are correct ways of saying things, and there are incorrect ways. I invite you to elevate your speech to sound Euphonious.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals? Are they realistic? How much time are you willing to put into practicing the excersices?
