Testimonials from previous students
I would like to say a huge “Thank you” to my accent tutor,
Undertaking the challenge of learning a new accent or enhancing an existing one is a daunting task for anyone.
If you’re unsure on whether or not to train with Sarah, I would strongly
recommend you to go for it – you will NOT be disappointed.
As a student on her ‘Standard American’ course, I can honestly report that she is warm, welcoming, encouraging but most importantly – extremely skilled at what she does.
Her insight and attention to detail is remarkable. She gives attention not only
to the more obvious aspects of the accent but also to the little nuances that
make the difference between a passable accent and one that sounds truly convincing.
Being on the course was time and money well spent.
This is my second class with Sarah. She is always encouraging. The Scottish accent was definitely a challenge. Sarah is great about pointing out your strengths but also letting you know where improvement is needed. So appreciate the way she teaches.
When I signed up for Sarah’s course, I already knew that my time to practice for it was very limited. My plan was to just take part as much as possible over the ten days, and then go back to the videos later to really start the transition by myself. So I was even more surprised, when I realized at the end of it, how much progress I had actually made. The videos and the feedback were so helpful that I got way more out of it than I would’ve ever imagined, especially with my very tight schedule. Sarah is a real expert and I would always work with her again.
