What we're about

Hi! I'm a speech/voice and communications trainer here in NYC. This meetup is for people who want to improve their English speaking skills-- for their jobs, for their personal lives, for themselves. All are welcome.

Each meetup will focus on a different topic, based on what members tell me they want greater understanding or more practice in. The topics will be geared for people who speak English as a second language, but many of the classes will address issues related to all speaking. Issues such as mastering a sound--like [r] may be covered, or gaining greater understanding and practice with American English intonation... or advice and practice for communicating more effectively in meetings, or issues related to public speaking, or making better small talk... YOU tell me what you want to work on, and I will plan and curate the class.

It is a welcoming, no-pressure environment where you can experiment sounding new ways, gain valuable feedback, practice with real people--real nice people, too;), and gain greater confidence in your communication skills.

I try to make the classes accessible to everyone. Most are free; for some, there is a small charge. I also offer reduced price group classes for people who are really serious about improving their English communication skills. Workshops for groups and companies, as well as 1:1 programs are also available; reach out to me to learn more about those!

I am ALWAYS open to hear your suggestions for a meetup topic, so... let me hear them!:)

Look forward to meeting you!
