The Canadian Pronunciation Coach helps professionals become more successful with powerful tools for effective English-speaking communication.

Whether you’re a native English speaker or a speaker of English as Another Language, we’ll go beyond pronunciation to find the confident voice and communication skills you need for your situation.

  • Overcoming the challenges of vocal mechanics and psychological barriers
  • Managing your native accent to speak clearly and persuasively
  • Finding the clear musical voice that engages your listeners
  • Bringing passion to your speeches and presentations

We work in person (depending on your location), by videoconference and/or on the telephone.

Individual classes are available.

Courses are offered in packages of eight, 10 or 12 hours, with ongoing support for clients who complete 12-hour programs or more.

Communication needs for businesses can be different.

I work with you and your company to develop training that’s the right fit.

I offer individual weekly and/or intensive coaching (in person, via telephone and/or videoconference), small-group classes, and in-house workshops for larger groups in the Greater Toronto area.

Please contact me at to discuss your needs and my fees.
