    I thought I could never change my accent. It was a lot of work, but now I can express myself much more clearly and confidently with my colleagues.

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

First, we have a free 30 minute consultation via Zoom or Skype to get to know each other, to explore needs and goals, and to answer your questions.

If we agree to work together, we set up a lesson schedule. Usually a package of ten lessons initially.

The we get to work. Your lessons will be one-to-one with me, Rex, and the practice will address your particular needs and goals.

These will be working sessions, not chit chat, and you will be expected to complete home practice between sessions.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Ambition is great, but to avoid frustration and disappointment, please be realistic in your expectations. Unless you are very young, it is highly unlikely you will be able to sound exactly like a native speaker of American English!  However, there is no need to sound exactly like a native speaker of American English. If you are willing to commit and to work at it, you can learn to be a much more effective communicator and sound much more like a native speaker of American English. You can learn to speak more beautifully, clearly and effectively. Become more successful in your personal and professional relationships.  You can do it!


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

Shop around and choose wisely. Have a trial lesson before you make any commitments.  Run away from anyone who promises you instant success or that you will sound exactly like a native speaker of American English!
