Your knowledge is a solid foundation.

Let's take it to the next level.

You know a lot about speech and language, and that’s a great start.  Teaching accents, dialects, and pronunciation may require a different set of skills, but it's not impossible to learn them and excel as an instructor in this field.   

The demand for accent training is undeniable.  It’s a sought-after skill, commanding a high hourly rate from motivated students who are a joy to work with, but figuring out where to start can be confusing and overwhelming!

It’s not easy to find clear guidance about how to design sessions and programs and the struggle to find good teaching materials and resources is real.  You can waste a lot of valuable time searching for this information.

Then, there’s the fear.  Despite knowing there's a thriving market for accent training and seeing other successful teachers in the field, the fear of not having specific accent and dialect knowledge makes people reluctant to start working with their own students.

As¬†someone with nearly 25 years of experience in this field ‚Äď I can tell you that you don't¬†need to¬†be an expert in every accent and dialect of English to begin working with students. When I started out, I knew very little!¬†¬†So¬†remember, many successful teachers have started exactly where you are right now.

If you haven't had much experience working with students, of course, you're going to feel uncertain about how to do it all: offer assessments, structure accent training sessions, create engaging accent modification homework activities... There's a lot to learn, so it’s natural to feel unqualified to work in this specialized field, especially when you're just getting started.

BUT…

It's time to recognize the foundational skills that you DO have and start building on those skills to advance your expertise!

That's where Our Accent Specialist Training program comes in.

It’s a program specifically designed for Speech and Language Professionals who want to offer the specialized skill of accent and pronunciation training.

Since 2020, our program has helped over 200 speech professionals gain the specific knowledge and expertise needed to work with their own students and launch successful accent training businesses.

We will be with you every step of the way as you explore the possibility of working with your own students and running your own accent training business.

Course Description:

Learn to assess, set goals, create lesson plans, structure sessions, develop homework activities, and design training programs using proven techniques. 

Troubleshoot common speech challenges for ESL or EAL (English as a second or alternative language) speakers based on their native language/region.  You'll also learn to teach regional dialects of American English and how to work with specific populations like actors and corporate clients.

Essential Materials:  Intake forms, outlines for assessments, blank evaluation forms, downloadable practice sheets, audio lessons to share with your students, and Google slide presentations to guide you through assessments and sessions so you'll sound like an expert even if you've never worked with a student before.

Teaching scripts: Learn exactly what to say and how to explain sounds and features of American English.  Our ready made curriculum will ensure that you know exactly what to say to get your students excited about working with you and motivated to schedule more sessions. 

You'll gain a deep understanding of the intricacies of speech patterns, regional and global accents, and cultural nuances, allowing you to better serve your clients and help them achieve their communication goals.

BONUS! 1 Year of Live Coaching and Support 

For a limited time, when you enroll in the Accent Specialist Training Program, you'll get a 1-year free membership to The Speech Coach Collective (a value of $890.00) .

Why Become an Accent Specialist?

High Demand:  English is a global language and it’s the most studied language in the world.  Approximately 1.5 billion people speak English as a second language, and while not every speaker wants or needs to work on pronunciation, many do, and they are motivated to practice and improve.

An Ideal Side Job: If you’re not ready to give up your day job, accent training can be a wonderful side gig.  You can start off by seeing students a few nights a week or on the weekends and build from there.  Many students prefer evenings and weekends, allowing you to offer sessions outside of your current job.

High Hourly Rates:  Accent training is a specialized service, so the average hourly session rate is high.

Flexible Working Time:  The schedule is totally up to you and you don’t need much more than a computer to work with students.

No Certification Needed:  Regardless of what anyone tells you, you don't need any type of certification, licensure, or degree to provide accent and pronunciation training. Ongoing training to expand the skills you already have will make you a much better teacher, but it’s not required to do this work.

It’s a great time to be an online teacher.  Thanks to COVID, the world has realized that online teaching and coaching is more flexible, more convenient, and just as effective as in-person training.  So, if you’ve ever thought about helping people reclaim their speech and communication skills, NOW is the time to get out there and do it.

You don't need to be a salesperson

The assessment that you’ll learn in the program also serves as a powerful sales tool and plays a crucial role in building your caseload.

I’m a Speech-Pathologist, not a salesperson.  I understand that selling can feel really uncomfortable, so I designed and refined this structured assessment to educate our students first, THEN inspire them to enroll.  I promise that you won’t have to be pushy or feel like a used-car salesman (no offense to used-car salesmen, I know you’re just doing your job!)

Simply follow the step-by-step plan outlined in your Assessment Toolkit.  The sales pitch is already integrated into the assessment process.

One-Time Fee = Lifetime Access:

Once you enroll in The Accent Channel Accent Specialist Training Program, you'll have lifetime access to the course materials, including any future updates. You can revisit the content at any time to refresh your knowledge and stay up to date with the latest teaching techniques. 

The program pays for itself (and more!) when just one student completes your training program.

Done For You Materials

If you want to charge premium prices, you need quality materials for your programs.

Our materials give you everything you need to teach rhythm, intonation, and every sound of American English, so you can avoid the hours of research, effort, and frustration that come with creating or searching for materials.

After you download and save all the PDFs and audios to your computer or Dropbox, you have permission to use them in your sessions and share with your students.

Qualified and Confident

This program is specifically designed to get you qualified and confident in your ability to work with accent training students, while recognizing that being an expert in every accent and dialect is not a requirement. 

You’ll acquire the specialized knowledge and techniques to deliver exceptional results to your students, while continuing to focus on learning and growth, building your expertise over time.

A little about me:  I'm Jessica Kijowski, MS, CCC-SLP, and I'm an ASHA-certified Speech-Language Pathologist.  I’ve been teaching accents, dialects, and pronunciation since 2000. 

I started my own accent training business from scratch, with zero students, but turned it into a thriving business with a full-time caseload.

Since 2020, I've helped over 200 speech and language professionals launch successful accent training businesses. Many of these teachers were able to leave their full-time jobs for the more fulfilling career of working for themselves.

When you’re ready to take action, I’d love to welcome you into our program and help you start an exciting new chapter in your career.

After completing the program, you'll be ready to turn your passion for speech and language into a really cool career that brings you joy and commands a high session fee. 

You'll have all the tools to build a successful and sustainable accent training business.
