Client Testimonials


“I have been searching for a highly proficient accent coach or institution. There are many online courses but I was not sure the courses until I found the Accent & Corporate English Training Classes, offered by Buffalo Hearing and Speech Center. Carrie is an excellent Speech trainer and she customized the communication training course. It was extremely well designed. I really enjoyed this Accent and Communication training and it has given me a new confidence in dealing with my work situation and my personal confidence. All things about the course were excellent and extremely helpful. I enjoyed it very much."

“I can't tell you how wonderful these last past nine weeks have been. Although it was only nine hours of training, the contribution of your time and effort has been life-changing. Being a minister in a doctoral program for theology, with little formal training at the art of speaking, I must say I have benefited tremendously from your feedback. I think this is a part of your life calling you are a natural at proliferating as well as modifying one's natural abilities. You have made my day, and you are an exceptional person!”
All the best,
Rev. Dave

“I always have the problem to pronounce ‘th’ sound. I knew the differences between the voiced and voiceless ‘th’, but I could not pronounce them correctly. The instructor introduced a website to help us distinguish different sounds. I think it is very helpful. The instructor even asked me to look at the mirror when I said the words. She tried many ways to teach and improve our pronunciation. Very good program and very good instructor.”

How Does the ACE Approach Work?

Achieving Communication Excellence

Speaking to Influence

What kind of vocal image do YOU project?  You may be surprised to learn how you are being perceived by others.

Does your vocal quality and speaking style match your level of competence and confidence?  Is your voice an asset or a liability?

'HOW' you say something is just as important as WHAT you say.

Listeners make judgments about your personality, credibility, educational level and professionalism based on how you sound to them.

The good news is that even the slightest changes can have an immediate and noticeable effect on your self-confidence and on how others perceive you since your voice is something you use daily in your personal and professional lives.

Learn how to control your pitch, rate of speaking, volume and breath support necessary to CAPTIVATE, PERSUADE AND COMMAND ATTENTION.

Voice training may be for you if have ever found yourself making one or more of the following complaints:

  • No one pays attention to what I am saying
  • People interrupt me frequently or finish my sentences for me
  • My voice doesn’t project and people cannot hear me
  • People often do not remember what I have said
  • It is difficult to get anyone motivated by my words
  • My voice is too high, low or monotone
  • I use too many filler words such as 'um' and 'uhh' when I speak

Length of Program: 6 weeks (1 hour class per week).
