How does online training work?
We use adobe connect for our online platform. We find it to be much more interactive and efficient then Skype. Our video conferencing tool offers audio, video, and the ability to share teaching materials on your computer desktop. We can share documents, PowerPoint’s, and videos. In addition all sessions can be recorded.
I’m interested but the class doesn’t fit into my budget, what are my options?
We have a couple different options for you.
- Our most popular option – we will contact your employer for you! Many companies and organizations are more than willing to pay for their highly motivated employees to gain better communication skills. It helps you in your career and consequently helps your employer.
- We offer hourly sessions for clients looking to pay on a per session basis
- We are willing to break up your payments into 2 or 3 installments. This way you can get started and pay as you go..
What types of materials do you use?
We are continually gathering and exploring any and all materials on the market to find the best for our clients. Our clients receive a book and other training materials. However, our trainers are equipped with a full library of accent reduction resources to enrich your learning experience.
How does the program work?
Your target goals are developed from your evaluation results. Each week your instructor will introduce and practice some of the features targeted. You will practice aloud with the instructor and receive immediate feedback on the accuracy of your speech, and suggestions for change if inaccurate. The program is cumulative, as we continue to add and practice new work each meeting.
What if I have to miss a class?
No problem. If cancellations are made within a 48 hour period the session will be rescheduled at a mutually agreed upon time. We allow students to reschedule 3 times throughout the course.
