I'm Keri Safran, a *Certified C-PESL Accent Reduction Coach, here to assist you with your English Pronunciation skills. I love accents. I study them constantly.  They are NOT a disorder, a condition or a sign of inferior intelligence.  They are a gift.  They are either the result of speaking more than one language, or of possessing the rich cultural identity of your hometown.  Let's be clear: Accent Reduction is not about removing your accent.  My goal is to equip you with a new skill: the ability to turn an American Accent on and off so that you can clearly communicate for business or personal purposes.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE THOUGHTS
ON A REGULAR BASIS?

  • "If I have to repeat myself one more time my head might explode."
  • "How do you pronounce that word?"
  • "Why is that person speaking so loudly to me? I'm not stupid. I'm just not from the U.S.A."
  • "I think she got the role because her American Accent is better than mine."

If you answered "Yes" to any of these, then I am here to help!

CLEAR COMMUNICATION and CORRECT ENGLISH
PRONUNCIATION are ESSENTIAL

Please note that I am not a Speech Therapist. I am not
a doctor. Your accent is not a medical condition.

I am a Certified Accent Reduction coach in the Compton–PESL (Pronouncing English as a Second Language) Accent Modification Method, who is also equipped with years of training in voice, speech and dialects in the theatre.

I will customize the best plan for you.
