Deciding to teach accents and pronunciation doesn’t have to be a big life decision. You don’t have to leave your current job until you are ready because you can choose how many students you want to work with. It can be full-time or part-time and you can do the work from anywhere in the world.
Plus, teaching is an easy startup with very little financial investment or risk. You don’t need any expensive equipment or specialized materials to get started.
I didn't think I’d find a "cool" job, doing something I really love, while actually earning a consistent income.
I had just graduated with a master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology when I realized that I really didn’t enjoy working as a Speech Pathologist at all.
I was dealing with an overwhelming caseload, too much paperwork, and very little respect from my clients or my employer. The worst part…there was absolutely no opportunity for any real career advancement or a bigger salary (and I wasn’t making all that much to begin with!)
But there was NO WAY that I was going back to school for ANOTHER degree. I had made my decision and I just kind of resigned myself to a dead-end career.
UNTIL, I discovered the opportunity to teach accents and pronunciation.
Sometimes called accent modification, sometimes called elocution, accent and pronunciation training is so much more!
You get to help your students become great speakers, be easily understood, and feel confident about speaking and interacting in English.
Speech Pathologists and ESL teachers are a perfect fit for teaching accents and pronunciation.
You already have many of the skills that you need to work with accent training students. You just need to know how to best organize that knowledge to design effective programs.
Actors, you also make wonderful teachers because you are trained in speech and diction and are familiar with the sounds and intonations of the English language.
Online learning and coaching is becoming more and more common for everyone in the COVID-19 age, but especially for speech and pronunciation work.
Once you know how to work with students in this specialized area, you can offer private sessions, online courses, membership programs, group coaching, webinars and online workshops… The possibilities for more revenue and passive income from online courses are endless and you can do it all on your own terms.
Spending time with my students who love and respect my teaching is incredible!!! And I am so grateful for that. I wake up every morning excited and ready to jump on my computer and work with my students, many of whom have become lifelong friends.
The sad part is, most people are unaware that this is actually a real career where you can make money!
And most people who want to teach are unsure of how to do it and nervous about finding students, so there is a real shortage of qualified teachers and coaches right now.
I talk to students every single day who are so ready to overcome the communication challenges that negatively affect their professional and educational advancement, their self-esteem, their social interactions, and their everyday activities. These students are actively searching for accent instructors to help them improve.
If you are ready to create your own opportunity to have the coolest job in the world, your next step is my Intro to Teaching Workshop.
The workshop offers a detailed, easy to implement plan for creating accent and pronunciation training programs and gets you ready to work with students.
