I'm a speech-language pathologist and I can help you speak English with clarity and confidence!
I'm so glad you're here, taking the first step towards boosting your confidence.
I moved to the United States from Poland at the age of 15. I didn’t speak much English besides the basics that I learned in elementary and middle school. I never held a conversation in English before I came to New York City. I became fluent in English in 6 months. After about 2 years, I changed my accent to a point that most people barely realized I was not from the US.
I always had a talent for accents and could figure out the way people spoke that needed to be changed to make them sound clear. But it wasn’t until I got my master’s degree in speech-language pathology, and supervised an accent reduction clinic, where I learned the tools of the trade on how to exactly help people speak clearly and with confidence.
I believe having an accent makes us very unique. It’s part of our identity, part of who we are. If you have an accent and everyone can understand you, job well done! You don’t need my services. However, if you need to be understood because you get frustrated by having to repeat yourself constantly or you feel like your accent has cost you important opportunities and lowered your confidence, you are in the right place.
Don’t let your insecurities about your accent or your identity stop you from going after your dreams. Now is the time to take control of your future and take the matter into your own hands. Don’t stall what’s inevitable. Don’t delay your greatness and success any longer. Become a CEO, a business owner, or a college professor like you’ve always dreamed of being.
The time is now. The saying “tomorrow is never promised” resonates with me deeply and it’s the reason why I no longer stall my dreams. Instead, I put them on the pedestal as they deserve to be. I hope you will do the same for you. How neat is it? You can have expert help to guide you through it so you don’t have to figure this out all on your own, as I did? Heck yes! Sign me up.
One thing before we get started. This formula is not to be taken lightly. It will take consistency, time, and patience for you to reach your accent reduction goals. If you think about it, you have been speaking a certain way for 20/30/40/50 years or longer. We will need to put in the work to change some of those speaking patterns. It will take extra time for some and less time for others, but if you apply yourself you will get the results you need. This isn’t a 5 day training to a better accent program that others may promise you. If and only if you put in real work, you will get real results.
Hey, remember what I said before? Tomorrow is not promised, so don’t put it off any longer! Take life by the horns and deal with this situation directly and now. Stop putting off your biggest dreams. Whether it’s becoming an actress, a news anchor, or a medical professional, you can do anything you desire! The only person standing in the way of creating the life of your dreams is you, my dear.
Sign up today for private one-on-one coaching with me, Lena. I'd love to help you speak clearly and with confidence so that you can land that dream gig, start your own business and share your gifts with the world. The world needs you and your special gifts.
