I had a 10-session course with Lauren to reduce my accent. Every time, Lauren sent course material prior, fully prepared and was very patient, encouraging and found my problems right away. Her class is very well structured and helped me realize where my challenges were and how to solve them. After her class, I feel more confident to speak in public with reduced accent.
