Areas of Practice
Accent Modification / Accent Reduction
Accent modification can help those who wish to improve their English communication skills by developing a deeper awareness of the American accent and learning how to be a more effective communicator. My accent modification program includes highly personalized instruction on how to use the American English accent at all levels of language and settings.
Corporate Speech Training
Communication training within the corporate setting may include accent modification for non-native English-speaking professionals, dialect modification for native English-speaking professionals, public speaking and oral presentation skills, and cross-cultural communication training to improve understanding and cultural awareness between professionals from different countries and cultures.
Voice Projection and Oral Presentation Skills
Learn how to project a clear and confident voice in the most stressful of settings - the Oral Presentation. Voice projection and oral presentation skills training can teach you techniques to improve the strength, quality, and clarity of your voice, and help you to conquer the anxiety of public speaking.
"Working with Julie was awesome! She helped customize the syllabus as per the feedback from my initial performance review which helped me focus on my weak areas such as understanding intonation, consonants, and American English pronunciation. The course gave me a jump start on becoming a better story teller." — Sunit, Electrical Engineer
