Maximise your career potential

Every professional understands the importance of good communication. Learning natural, easy-to-understand pronunciation will allow you to focus on being good at what you do.  Here are some of the benefits of clearer speech:

  • feel confident 

  • better work flow and team participation

  • no more embarrassing mistakes

  • increased sales

  • better client relationships

  • less frustration

Here's what happens in the lessons

  1. assessment of your accent   

  2. train your ear and your muscles  

  3. focus on important sounds

  4. learn natural intonation

  5. learn a few other tricks

  6. putting it all together

  7. practice, practice, practice

  8. speak clearly and confidently

The Compton PESL program uses proven, evidence based techniques derived from 30 years of research by Dr Arthur J. Compton. You can expect at least 50% improvement in clarity and accuracy when you commit to the recommended practice.

I am a specialist English pronunciation teacher. I work with professionals from all around the world who want to be understood more easily. I have always had a passion for languages and am particularly interested in understanding how adults learn best.

I have a master's degree in speech and language pathology, I am a qualified English (esl) teacher, and I am also a certified Compton PESL  (pronouncing English as a second language) trainer. 

Originally from Canada, I have also lived in the U.S.A., in the U.K. and (for the past 20 years) in Australia.

Zoom/Skype lessons are available.
