Whether you are a native English speaker, or English is your second language, we will create a customized coaching program to meet your needs.

Accent Coaching


Your accent should be a positive characteristic and something to be proud of.

At Clarity Speech Coaching, we honor your culture and native tongue.  The goal of the accent reduction program is to reduce the misunderstandings which may occur in the work place and make sure your true personality and message shines through!

We customize each accent reduction program for YOU!  After a thorough interview and speech sample is obtained, a detailed analysis will be completed by your Accent Coach.  We will help you meet your communication goals with personalized and individualized training programs for your English pronunciation and speaking development.

Your Accent Coach Ann Marie Pannell is a licensed Speech Pathologist and trained in the Compton P-ESL Accent Reduction Program. While being a Speech Pathologist is not required to provide accent reduction services, it does provide additional voice, fluency and communication expertise to your unique accent coaching program, while assuring productive and expert training sessions.

Our accent coaching classes

We reduce accents, not eliminate them.

Individual Accent Coaching Training Programs

Intensive one-on-one sessions with your Accent Coach and working directly with the P-ESL Accent Modification on-line program, either via web based sessions or sessions onsite at your business.

The benefits of an accent reduction program are visible in our client's personal lives and careers, and typically result in at least 50-60% improvement in the pronunciation skills of American English with dedicated practice, and completion of the established program.

Small Group Accent Coaching Training Programs

These programs can be completed in a small group setting for businesses who have a number of employees who are non-native English speakers.  Small groups are ideal in the workplace and the employees do NOT need to share the same native language.

Using the same P-ESL method from the Individual Accent Reduction Programs, clients receive group and direct instruction during the classes.

If you feel your corporation can benefit from cultural communication training, you are in the right place.  We are equipped to listen to your circumstance and tailor a program to your employees needs.  Contact us!
