Have you thought about offering accent modification or pronunciation training services but don't know how to find students?

 

Do you want to work with motivated students who admire and respect you and are willing to pay you well for your services?  (The average rate ranges from $75.00 - $175.00 per session)

 

Do you feel like you know a lot about the sounds of spoken English but not sure how to put it all together into a real method for teaching accents and pronunciation? 

 

Have you dreamed of a career with a flexible schedule and the possibility for passive income {Who hasn't!?!?} but are afraid to start your own business?

 

Do you feel like other teachers know way more than you (because you didn't have any real accent mod experience in grad school) and you are totally out of your league to even try this?  (Hello Imposter Syndrome.  I remember that feeling too.)

You already have many of the skills you need to start teaching. 

You just need someone to show you how to find some students of your own and apply those skills.

 

That's what we do in
The Accent Channel Method.

You don’t need to be an accent expert to do this work.

 

Most of us didn’t get much training on accent modification or pronunciation training in college, so it’s totally normal to feel unqualified and unsure of how to do it. 

I knew almost nothing about how to teach accents when I started 20 years ago, but I got better with experience, and so will you.  You just need a little guidance, some proven training techniques, and a plan to find students.

Listen…people with half your linguistic knowledge are out there killing it while you are still waiting to feel ready to teach!  And while you are waiting, they are getting the experience of working with real students that will truly transform you into an expert. 

You can learn the basics of teaching in one weekend and I'm available to help you if you need any advice.  Not to mention, we provide lots of resources to help you keep learning as you gain experience. 

Some of our students have started working with their own students only a few weeks or even DAYS after enrolling in the program.

So what are you waiting for?  Learn the basics, get out there, and start teaching!

Here's How It Works

Enroll and Log In

You'll receive an email with login info so you can start immediately.  All lessons are available in your online library.

Complete The Program

Start working through the lessons!  You can work at your own pace so there is no rush to complete the program. 

Start Teaching!

You'll feel confident, prepared, and totally ready to build your business and start working with real students!  

There are other accent and pronunciation teacher training courses out there, but The Accent Channel Method is the ONLY program that…

 

Focuses on finding students and building a business:  

I've taken those other courses.  They tell you to ask for referrals (wait, what if I'm just starting and don't have any students to ask!?!?!)  or give free presentations or workshops in your community (uhmmm, maybe that worked 20 years ago but the world is really different now!)

We walk you through the steps of implementing proven marketing strategies that will attract new students and result in consistent enrollments and revenue.

This work is more than just private one-on-one sessions.  I want you to grow your business through online courses, membership programs, group coaching, webinars, online workshops…and that is just the beginning.   

There are so many possibilities for more revenue and passive income and in the program, you'll explore these non-traditional options to grow your business. 

 

Gets you ready to work with real students ASAP:  

I’ll show you exactly what you need (and what you don’t need) to create awesome training programs that get real results and turn your potential students into loyal long-term customers.

You'll get access to a growing library of downloadable materials.  And this is good stuff.  Not the dated, childish poems and practice sheets that you get with other programs.  This is all practical, age-appropriate, really engaging stuff that your students will love. 

And did I mention that it is all online and ready for you to download?  This is what a modern teacher training program should be.

 

Teaches you to teach dialects: 

Although you don't need to know how to teach dialects, it does make you a better teacher and teaching dialects to actors is a really great niche market.  In the program, you'll learn how to do it!

 

Gives you the support that you need: 

You don't need to do this alone!  I have 20 years of answers and I can't wait to share them with you. 

You can ask questions and get feedback using the chat feature at the bottom of each lesson page or in our private Facebook Group.  

You can also ask questions or request topics to be covered in our Monthly Live Group Coaching sessions.  Replays are available if you can't make it live.

Learn to teach, find students, and develop your own programs, products, services, and online courses.

Can I Take A Look Inside The Program?

Of course!  Press play to see exactly what you'll get with The Accent Channel Method program.

 

Here’s what we will do to get you ready to teach.

1.  You’ll learn how to do an accent assessment and get a copy of my Accent Assessment Toolkit.  Many teachers make the mistake of doing a really hard-core evaluation at the beginning and that actually backfires.  It makes the student feel hopeless and harshly judged (they already feel this way in day to day conversations) so it sends them running for the hills!  You are constantly evaluating during each session so want to make sure that you handle your first meeting in a way that gets your potential student eager to work with you.

2.  You'll learn to set goals, create lesson plans, and design programs using proven teaching techniques and you will get familiar with how to troubleshoot common speech challenges for non-native speakers based on their native language.

3.  You’ll learn to structure lessons and sessions to create personalized, effective programs for your students.  We’ll talk about the right kind of activities to use with this very specific type of student.  You’ll be able to listen to recordings of some of my own sessions with my students, so you can feel confident about conducting your own sessions.

4.  You'll learn how to teach different dialects of English.  I want all the teachers in my program to be able to teach more than one accent.  There are a lot of reasons for this but the 2 most important are:

  • It makes you more marketable
  • It shows that you don't believe that one accent (the general American) is better or more prestigious than another.  This is SO important.

5.  We will get you set up with access to my personal library of materials that are appropriate for accent and pronunciation training.  There are over 350 lessons that cover every sound of American English.  You’ll get access for 1 full year so you’ll have time to download all the worksheets, audios, and other materials that you’ll need to work with your students.  You have permission to use them all in your sessions and programs.

6.  Then, we'll help you implement proven, what’s-working-now marketing strategies to find new students and grow your business with consistent enrollments.  You’ll learn how to price your sessions and packages and learn how to get offers for your services in front of the students who want your help.

Once you have those things in place, you’ll be ready to teach to your own steady stream of students. 

When you enroll, you'll receive an email with login info so you can start the lessons immediately.  You’ll also get immediate access to the online practice library of materials. 

All lessons are available in your online library.  You’ll have access to everything, including future updates as the program evolves.  Everything is self-paced, so you can work through the program in a way that fits your life and schedule, without feeling like you’re falling behind.

We’ll meet every month for live group coaching calls to talk about new marketing strategies and teaching techniques.  We’ll troubleshoot any areas where you’re struggling with your teaching or with your marketing.

The coaching calls are ongoing and you’ll have access to them for one full year with the option to extend access for a small yearly fee so you can always come back and join when you want to discuss a new marketing challenge or learn something new.  Replays are also available.

 I'm Jessica

I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist and I've been teaching accents, dialects, and pronunciation for 20 years.  I started my own accent training private practice with zero students, so I know what it is like to start a business from scratch.

I built my own business that includes revenue from direct work with students, as well as online courses that bring in passive income.  If that sounds good to you, I want to help you do the same thing!

So many students are ready to overcome the communication challenges that negatively affect their professional and educational advancement, self-esteem, social interactions, and everyday activities and they are searching for accent instructors to help them do it.

I Love Teaching Accents and Pronunciation

HERE'S WHY

  • Work with anyone in the world, from anywhere in the world

    All you need to work with your students is a computer.  Most students prefer the flexibility to work with you via video call.  You can make it full-time or part-time, depending on how many students you choose to see, and you can do the work from anywhere in the world.

  • Low-Risk Investment

    An accent training business is an easy startup with very little financial investment or risk. You don’t need any expensive equipment or specialized materials to get started.  And the best part...when you build your own business so you don’t have to work for someone else.  You get to call the shots!

  • New Streams of Income

    The average rate for a private speech and pronunciation session ranges from $75-$175 per session .  And that is just the beginning.  Once you know how to work with students in this specialized area, you can offer online courses, membership programs, group coaching, webinars and online workshops… The possibilities to grow your business are endless and you can do it all on your own terms.

Let's Do A Quick Recap so you know what you are getting...

You'll get lifetime access and any updates that we make to the main course.  If we ever decide to take the course offline, you be given at least 6 months notice and have the opportunity to download all lessons and materials.

When you enroll in the program today you'll get immediate access to these sections in your online library:

  • Getting Started:  Learn the fundamentals of accent training, how to do an assessment, and how to design lessons, courses, and programs
  • The 11 Essential Goals:  This course includes video tutorials that show you exactly how to teach every sound of the 12-week pronunciation training program that you will use for the majority of your accent training students.  It also includes done-for-you practice worksheets and audio files to download and share with your students and use in your programs.
  • Marketing For Accent & Pronunciation Professionals:  Learn and implement proven strategies specifically designed for accent instructors, dialect coaches and pronunciation professionals who are ready for more enrollments and sales.
  • Access to The Accent Channel Method Practice Materials for 1 full year with the option to extend access for a small yearly fee  Download all the materials you need to teach rhythm, intonation, and every sound of American English.  Save a ton time, effort, and frustration with a library of modern, high-quality, age-appropriate practice materials for your students. 
  • Lesson Plans for specific languages with the goal of learning the American Accent:  Learn exactly which goals to set and the order in which you should present them
  • Access to Live Group Coaching Sessions with Jessica every month and a Private Teachers-Only Facebook Group for one full year with the option to extend access for a small yearly fee:  In these live sessions, you'll get the answers and support you need to be successful.  Replays will be available and all students may submit questions whether they attend live or not.

I talk to tons of SLP's, ESL teachers, actors, and other language professionals who would love to switch careers and would be amazing teachers, but don't feel like they are ready.  Or feel like they don't know the secret to working with accents.  Or don't believe they can do this as a full time career.  Or some other excuse or misconception.  

And then I see the teachers in my programs starting businesses, enrolling students every week, finding success on YouTube...and I just want to scream from the mountain tops that this is such a great career and you can totally do this!!!!

We really can help our students feel confident about speaking and lead more enjoyable lives.  And almost anyone who speaks English at an advanced level can do it, once they know the basics.  And the basics are not rocket science ;)
