Meet your course instructor

Hello! My name is Julie Cunningham, and I've trained thousands of people on their American English pronunciation and voice projection skills. Here's how I can help you.

I've been helping people with their American English pronunciation skills since 2007, when I moved to the Czech Republic to teach English. This experience sparked a desire to return to school and earn a graduate degree in speech and language pathology, then pursue specialized certifications in American English pronunciation and American accent training.

Then I founded my company San Diego Voice and Accent, where I work one-on-one with professionals who want to perfect their American English pronunciation skills, project a clear and confident voice, and maximize their speaking potential.

Over the years of working as an American accent coach and professional voice trainer, I've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't work when training your pronunciation skills and voice projection. It's not enough for you to simply "repeat" what you hear; that isn't going to get you the results. You need to practice with the right technique and with the most effective methods, and you need someone there to guide you along the way.

That's why I created the English Pro™ series: to help professionals from all areas of the world and at all levels of English to speak with clarity and confidence, and to reach their goals of becoming a powerful and effective communicator.

English Pro™ gives you everything you need to train your American English communication skills successfully, including industry-leading practice techniques, pronunciation help and feedback, and live coaching to help you maximize your English skills.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your English transformation journey. I'm excited to work with you!

"I feel others can understand me better!"

"Before I attended Julie's 4-week seminar, I thought my pronunciation was pretty good.

After the first class, I realized that there are still many things I can improve on. The information I learned in her classes helped me to hear and understand better what others are saying. And with practice, I feel others can understand me better as well. Julie has a great way of helping me realize how the muscles in my mouth can move in a way to fulfill the need for the word at hand. This is exactly what I need to improve."

"The course gave me a jump start to becoming a better story teller."

"Working with Julie was awesome!

She helped customize the syllabus as per the feedback from my initial performance review, which helped me focus on my weak areas such as understanding intonation, consonants, and American English pronunciation. The course gave me a jump start to becoming a better story teller."
