What They say…
“I highly recommend Sarah she is meticulous in correcting every sound word and phrase. Lesson by skype works very well. Her patience and friendly approach made learning enjoyable even the pronunciations I was struggling with. Sarah helped me with the standard American accent, really looking forward to working with her again.”
