1 Hour Accent Coaching
60 minute 1-to-1 Accent Coaching session of an accent of your choice. You can either send me a script you are working on or I can send material for you to learn.

The session is broken down into 3 sections:
- If I have time I will record your practise sentences or the audition script before our session so that you have a clean copy of the words you need to say in the accent and you can practise them before the session and then we just use the time to fine tune in the session (I deduct approx 15 minutes from the hour to cover this). If we don’t have time to record before the session I will do it afterwards.
- We create a spark (the trigger to get you into the accent (approx 15 minutes) depending on wether you want this or not.
- We work on a piece of dialogue/audition/script/accent reduction sentences you have to work on (approx 30 minutes)
This can change depending on what it is you need from me in terms of learning an accent. I’m very flexible and can work around you so that you get exactly what you need.
I can testify to the effort Sarah put into helping me in the course. I was about to give up on the course due to hearing difficulties, but Sarah decided to provide a way to help me overcome my challenges. I am better off now and feel good about what I’ve learned from her class. A good teacher is someone who won’t give up on you.
Sarah was immediately helpful in my approach to numerous accents associated with my role. She is a credible source of knowledge who understands the importance of discussing an accents authenticity, foundation and delivery.
It was a great experience working with Sarah learning a southern American accent. She is very engaged, super professional and fun to work with. I highly recommend her!
Working with Sarah Valentine was everything I could of asked for and more in an accent class. The class breakdown and the Valentine method made it so easy to learn and master my British accent. Sarah’s feedback was so helpful while also being fun. I would definitely recommend Sarah for anyone wanting to learn an accent. I can’t wait to sign up for another course!
