Our Instructors

Who are our Accent Reduction specialists?

American Speech-Language Hearing Association

We are a team of certified speech-language pathologists and senior-level accent specialists. Each AccentsOff instructor holds a Masters-level academic degree and has completed a rigorous in-house training program.

Our academic and pedagogical credentials are complemented by our varied backgrounds in the arts (music, acting, writing, languages). This unique combination allows us to teach with sensitively-tuned ears and eyes while encouraging our students to develop mindfulness and good practice habits.

Who will you work with?

Your speech training will be guided by a member of our team of accent specialists. During your Discovery call, you’ll be carefully matched up with one of our staff instructors. You can then schedule an appointment for a complimentary, comprehensive speech evaluation – and then continue working together in your sessions.

Our instructors are carefully selected, vetted, and meticulously trained by company owner Rochel deOliveira. Each instructor has the professional and academic background to guide you through a course of intensive study rich in content, with personalized attention and proven results.

Check out our client reviews and before/after recordings – and schedule your Discovery call to get started.
