Speech and Accents

Tune in to Your Authenticity

I help individuals transform their expression through speech, voice, and accent training specialized to their unique needs and gifts.
If you want to represent yourself, your business, or your craft in a way that feels easier and more aligned with who you are, learn the tools that unlock that power.  
By tuning in to your authentic speech, you will increase your confidence in your message and make a deeper connection with others.  
Whether you want to speak with greater confidence or effectiveness, need to modify your accent, or need a dialect coach for a production, I can help you.

Speaking Effectively

Being a confident speaker is a skill that translates to both professional success and personal satisfaction.  You deserve to feel at ease and effective in smaller venues that are important to you or with larger audiences that desire your expertise. Effective speakers know how to connect with their listeners, and my coaching helps you master that connection, to speak in the contexts that matter to you.

Accent Modification

Your accent is part of your story. There are many reasons that you might want to modify your accent, and when you work with me we will begin with the goals that drive your desire for making changes.  You don't need to LOSE an accent, but you CAN acquire the tools to build a new one that suits your identity and your goals.

Coach Leslie Gordon Speech Workshop



Leslie's primary goal is to help others realize their potential with speech that makes an impact. 
With a doctorate in linguistics, Leslie has taught and coached languages, speech, and accents for over twenty years.  Her own journey as a language learner (fluent in Spanish and Portuguese) and a former unconfident speaker equip her to give the care and encouragement every client deserves.  
In her current practice as a coach of speech, voice and accent, Leslie uses a customized approach that begins with a client's specific goals. Through a process of observation, reflection, and teaching, Leslie equips clients with the skills needed to continue the work beyond the course or coaching session.
