Today modern technology makes it easier and more comfortable for you to understand the sound system of American English. I use 2D Sound Motion Technology (SMT) to educate my students on how to pronounce American sounds. Each sound in the session is followed by a 2D motion video helping you pronounce American sounds properly.
Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide learners the opportunity to learn in real-time virtually. Your learning becomes no different as in person: interactive videos, real-time communication with the professor, sound assignments, exchanging opinions with other students in forums and chats, multiple choices, and many other things you have never experienced before.
When students start learning English, they pay too much attention to Grammar and Vocabulary at the expense of Pronunciation.
This way, students start using sounds of the native language to speak English. This sound replacement creates an accent.
American Accent Program was designed to help speakers of English as a Second or Other Languages learn the American accent Properly and speak clearly and confidently.
In these classes
⠀ ⠀ ⠀I have worked with many Universities and schools, observing many classes of Accent Training that teach pronunciation worldwide. However, very few address facial muscle training, sound explanation using ADVANCED 2D technology, and work on mindset toward learning a new pronunciation. A confluence of these techniques will help you UNDERSTAND American Phonetics effortlessly. You will compare the difference between your native language pronunciation and the American one, allowing you to learn the American sound system quickly and more EFFICACIOUSLY. Most teachers providing pronunciation classes do not know these “language techniques,” and they simply “give a lecture to you.”
My students’ success matters: that is why I establish a solid and kind partnership with all my students, regardless of whether they take classes online or privately. Individual approach and careful guidance throughout learning are essential for Accent Reduction. I will help you set up a personalized, step-by-step learning strategy that works best for you.
This is a combination of psycholinguistics and educational approaches that help speakers of other languages (you) easily perceive and adapt the sound system of American phonetics. It allows you to change your thinking so that you can feel confident speaking English like in your native language.
“…I reached out to Alex in regards to my completion of my TESOL certification. He was very Intelligent, Patient, he took the time to listen to my concerns and fears. He encouraged, me and explained content with an approach I had never thought of. I felt embarrassed being in the education field for so long, needing the help, but he assured me it was normal, because my passion was to succeed and elevate my students. Alex took my passion and built upon it, and inspired me to reach new heights in my teaching career; as I embark to work with international students. He was willing to share and receive resources. He continues to push me to learn more, and different ways to improve. I highly recommend Alex for any endeavor he seeks.
1. You can understand how to pronounce American consonants correctly using the 2D Sound Simulator;
2. You can practice each sound with “phonetic exercises” (at the beginning, middle, and end of words);
3. You can practice speaking them in “sentence practice” & “paragraph practice.”
Use your consonants confidently!

I have been working with Dr. Alex on improving my pronunciation and accent for about two months now and am seeing better than positive results already. Dr. Alex is patient, friendly and very detail oriented. He tailors the sessions based on your needs and is extremely organized. If you are a foreign national in the US and are trying to improve your American accent and speaking skills, look no further!
