“I feel more confident with my clients and friends. Amy helped me with my marriage proposal and it went great! We worked on the articulation of my proposal speech, and I felt clear and confident when I gave it. Ultimately my now-fiancé said “yes”! Now I have this strong faith that I’m a few steps away from speaking like a native American speaker. ”
