English Pronunciation and Speech
|languages||English, Spanish, Thai|
Linguistics at University of California Davis
Tutoring speech correction to ESL students and those wanting to improve English speech since 2005.
I've lived in Thailand since early 2010 and have helped many willing Thais improve their speech and casual conversation.
Experience: 9 years
Want to speak English with a neutral "American English" accent? I'll help you correct your nuances and imperfections in speech and work on being a natural speaker of US-English.
Language is a passion of mine and one I love to share. I learned Spanish in high school and put it to use in southern California while working maintenance with an all-Mexican staff. I learned Russian in university and was able to put it to practice while living in Israel for a summer. Russian and Spanish might be a bit rusty for me now as I've lived in Thailand for 5 years; if I try to focus on one of them the Thai words are all I can muster. I'm currently studying to improve my Thai reading and writing to catch up to my speaking ability. Hoping I can do the same for someone else around the world with their love and dreams with the English language.
A background in Linguistics has allowed me to train others through the process of learning muscle memory [of the mouth] needed for native speech both in English and Thai (or the occasional beatboxing).
