Rita Haber, M.S. CCC-SLP (Speech Pathologist Instructor) received her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology at Midwestern University and her Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is a certified Compton-PESL (Pronouncing English as a Second Language) instructor.

Many experiences have led her to pursue a specialization in accent modification, including her passion for cultural studies, linguistics, foreign language, and traveling. She sees foreign language acquisition as the key to unlocking entire worlds between people, and accent reduction as the finishing touch to perfecting that link.

Rita has studied Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew, Arabic, and Russian. She spent a portion of her childhood living in Copenhagen, Denmark, and a year of college in Mexico City. She now resides in Miami, Florida where she enjoys cultural diversity and constant sunshine, as well as the ability to train competitively in her favorite cultural hobby, Latin dancing. By living in predominantly Spanish-speaking cities, she has even reduced her own accent in Spanish!

Through these academic and personal experiences, Rita developed a finely tuned ear for noticing the differences in speech patterns in a second language compared with their native languages, as well as for guiding clients in the necessary corrections.

“I researched a lot of online accent reduction companies and have to say AccentsOff was the right choice. They helped me improve my American accent, slow down my speech, and improve my intonation. Now people understand me a lot better after only a few months of training. I highly recommend AccentsOff if you want a truly professional experience with results.”
