Speech & Accent Reduction


Upper West Side Location: MON-FRI 10am – 5pm EST

Online: MON-FRI 12pm-7pm EST

Katina is everything a teacher should be: patient, encouraging, professional, knowledgeable and humorous. She helped me to perfect an accent which I found extremely difficult. She is highly skilled in her field and a great mentor. She aided me not only in the technical aspects of accents, but also in the application of them as well. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
