Accents are beautiful. They tell a story of who we are, where we come from, and our experiences along the way. But you may have worked hard to learn a language, only to find you are still not fully understood.
This is where I come in.
I am a certified speech-language pathologist with a specialization in accent training. English is my native language but I am also conversationally fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. I understand the frustration that comes with struggling to pronounce a word, blending in with native speakers, or understanding foreign slang. I also understand the joy that comes from
speaking a foreign language and being understood!
Let me help you speak with confidence!

"Caitlin was a great teacher, she took her time to record each sounding word in the correct way for me or sent Google docs with what I need to get done to succeed. She made sure I practiced it as much as I could. She didn't have to, but she stayed up late with me just to listen to my presentation for my seminar, she made sure it sounded correct before I presented to my professors - I passed with her help. I'm confident when speaking now. I'm grateful to get to know her. I thought of her as my mentor and a friend... Caitlin is a very professional teacher and very patient, she will go the mileage and do whatever it takes to help a student to success. If I would recommend an accent reduction teacher, it will definitely be her. You won't regret it. I promise!!"
