About Us

We have offered a variety of accent modification programs in a customized format since 2005. In addition to a basic program for accent modification, The Compton Pronouncing English as a Second Language (P-ESL), we offer programs designed for medical professionals, a program for Americans who want to reduce their regional dialects and our own Targeted Coaching Program to help clients prepare for a presentation or job interview.

We teach EVERY client how to decode the Standard American English pronunciation of any word using the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), along with intonation rules and notation. Clients digitally record all sessions and use a phonetic dictionary that now has a complete “app” for smart phones!

We provide services to individuals who are employed in small companies and large corporations and the university and medical communities in “The Triangle” of Central North Carolina including Raleigh, Durham, RTP, Cary and Chapel Hill.

We provide:

  • A free initial telephone consultation
  • An in-person information session with screening tests
  • An in-depth, individual evaluation
  • Individual tutorials
  • Training in our office in Durham
