Frequently Asked Questions
Can I really expect to increase my income by offering accent reduction services?
Of course! The training from the Accent Reduction 101 seminar is very comprehensive. You will be given all the tools you need to begin. It is up to you to have the drive to launch. I will say, I operate a successful business and there is nothing unique about my situation other than the passion to be a successful business owner.
What kind of money can I expect to make?
Services in professional development pay much higher than the traditional roles of speech pathology or ESL teacher. There is the option to work with individuals privately or offer group training. Both are very lucrative.
What if I don’t have any experience with accent reduction?
You are either a licensed speech-language pathologist who has been clinically trained in speech mechanics or a credentialed ESL teacher who is experienced with different languages and cultural groups. You have excellent experience to draw upon to offer this service that is not that different from your current professional role.
Can teaching accent reduction be part-time?
It’s your business and you have full control. I have worked with individuals who want to do it part-time for extra fun money or something nice to offer in retirement to those who go all in for a new full-time change. There is ample opportunity locally and internationally. Go for it, anyway that you want.
Are coaching services available if I need more support?
Yes. We offer hands-on coaching programs where you will be fully supported in navigating business ownership and establishing paying clients. Reach out for details.
