"Bruce is an excellent instructor. He had a very good approach to help me improve my pronunciation focusing on sounds that
French people such as myself typically have issues with."
at a Major New Jersey Pharmaceutical Company
"I migrated to the USA during middle age and wondered whether I would ever be able to improve my pronunciation. Coaching from Bruce made it real. Bruce is a very knowledgeable and dedicated instructor. I would say he is the best. He takes extra interest in explaining each and every aspect with lots of examples. Pronunciation cannot be improved without a coach. The training also helped to improve my speech quality. Money was well spent."
"I will miss my weekly sessions but fortunately I have the software to keep practicing and improving my accent. I strongly recommend this class to any person willing to improve his/her pronunciation and presentation skills."

Foreign Accent Modification
and American Dialect Instruction
Despite years of self-guided study and intensive ESL instruction, many foreign-born professionals feel their foreign accent hinders success.
Employers who recruit and train specialist-professionals from other countries often find the recruit's strong foreign accent keeps them from performing at full potential. If you are serious about improving your own or an employee's accented English skills, we can help.
Why Our Approach is Unique
We believe non-native speakers of English deserve an individualized plan of accent instruction because no accent is exactly the same as another. Generalized instruction methods are easily found, but such programs usually target all the sounds in English, causing the client to waste time and money working on skills and sounds already mastered.
Our clients simply read words, sentences and paragraphs aloud for a few minutes into a tape recorder. Then, we analyze this recorded speech sample and design the client's individualized plan of instruction.
Two Options are Available:
Business and Theatre Skills
Training and instruction in workplace, theatre and public presentation skills is also available for business people and for amateur and professional actors.
