Perfect! Trevor has worked with me on accent reduction. I am a fluent speaker so the work he needed to do was very subtle, since my mistakes were not always that obvious.
He was patient, kind, clear, and overall very professional. He was very helpful during the lesson and also sent me a lot of materials afterwards to help me prepare better.
I enjoyed working with him and will schedule other lessons with him in the future.
It was great discussing Mara’s needs and requirements with her. She is highly motivated to develop her English pronunciation skills and she seemed very pleased with the help I gave her. She may have another lesson.
Trevor is attentive and very helpful
