I can help you learn all the skills you need to improve your accent so that you feel confident that you can do the job and do it well.

Take the accent challenge
Thank you to the lovely @sarawiseman__ for these kind words.
I worked one one with Sarah who went over and above with her attention to detail. I would recommend her wholeheartedly for UK accents.
10 Day American Accent Challenge.
Sarah Valentine is very friendly, approachable and professional. She delivered helpful individual feedback throughout the course, and encouraged everyone equally along the way. I enjoyed this course and have learnt some great tips to develop this accent as a skill. I have already recommended this course to fellow friends!
10 Day British RP Accent Challenge
This course was super helpful as an actor.
I highly recommend it for young actors who feel insecure in their voice. It helped give me the confidence to use my voice and different ways and it definitely helped me with my diction! Sarah is amazing and super helpful.
Couldn’t recommend this course more highly!
I thoroughly enjoyed this accent course and found myself learning new skills towards the american accent as the lessons went on.
I really loved Sarah’s way of teaching and i felt like my accent definitely got better since starting the course.
Thank you so much Sarah!!!
I did the 10 day Standard US accent and I loved how specific and tangible the information, instruction and practice was. Sarah isolates and clarifies particular sounds and explains how to make them. The work is incremental; starting with single sounds, then words, then sentences and then a whole text. The feedback is clear and redirects the student to particular sounds and intonation that need work. I loved that the US accent suddenly became “learnable” . I am definitely going to do more courses with Sarah.
Not only does this course help you form the sounds needed for the accent it also trains your ear to hear the accent and the daily practice really helps cement the accent into your body and mind!
Working with Sarah is fantastic as she has a fun, friendly and professional approach, providing a helpful technique that breaks down learning an accent into steps that are easy to understand and practice, and her honest feedback is invaluable.
As a beginner in learning a new accent, this course was a perfect way to lay those foundations that I will definitely continue to use in the future. It was so easy to get into and Sarah is very informative about the what’s, why’s and how’s of the accent (if that makes sense).
Sarah is an amazing teacher. I wish I had discovered these classes years ago. I will continue to take Sarah’s courses. I love getting to see other students work as well. Very inspiring.
Sarah is attentive, friendly and makes you feel comfortable as she takes you through her 21 day British RP accent challenge. I now feel extremely confident in the accent!
Having already taken the 10 day Standard American Course with Sarah I jumped straight into British RP. As a Brit with a noticeable regional accent I wanted to prove to myself I could sound authentic without being over the top. Sarah’s unique style and delivery made learning easy and fun and helped me gain confidence in the process.
I love all of Sarah’s positive feedback and encouragement throughout the course. There were lots of suggestions for improvements, but I always felt like my work was being appreciated.
I highly recommend Sarah’s courses. Her feedback on my work was quick and helpful. The structure of her course makes the learning part fun.
10 Day American Accent Challenge
It has been an awesome and exhilarating 10 days. I am so happy I did this course. Now I can clearly hear when I make the wrong sound and am able to correct myself. I was never able to do that before. Thank you so much, Sarah!
This is the 2nd course I have done with Sarah. She is so supportive and encouraging – the perfect teacher. I love the daily practice and personal feedback which is so key to improving. Thanks once again.
What a great fun course! Sarah your videos were really helpful, particularly for certain vowel sounds I sometimes find tricky. You’ve really boosted my confidence with the accent! Thank you 🙂
Great sessions and built every day to the final monologue very worthwhile and I enjoyed it.
I absolutely enjoyed the RP accent course with Sarah Valentine because she is able to simplify the learning process which makes it so much easier and it’s very liberating!
Thanks a million!
Sarah is patient, methodical and within an hour she was able to pinpoint my trouble spots and help to make my American accent flawless. She is an incredibly talented lady being able to pull out so many accents and do them perfectly. I will most definitely work with her again.
I contacted Sarah when faced with the daunting task of auditioning in a Scottish accent, something I’d not done before, nor ever really prepared for. Spending an hour’s coaching with her assuaged many of the fears and anxiety I had around the accent, and filled me with the confidence I needed to actually go in the room and put forward something worthwhile to the casting director.
I was quite nervous to meet Sarah for my accent session but she soon put me at ease and gave me confidence to learn an American accent. I look forward to further sessions with Sarah as I trust her expertise to perfect my accent.
I have never taken accent coaching before and it was my first time. It was so easy to understand what Sarah taught me as she was helping me not only just learn but live the accent too. I was late to the class so she spent extra time with me without charging me extra. It was a great experience sitting and learning from her.
Sarah made me feel at ease and was very professional. Your one-hour session has really helped me break though with my accent struggle. I will definitely come back for more, I highly recommend Sarah.
I was very daunted when I was told two weeks before shooting that my character on Underbelly was no longer a Kiwi and now had a strong Lancashire accent. Sarah broke down every line with me and her support filled me with the confidence I needed.
I had never learnt an accent before and was worried I would not be able to master it in time. In the few hours we spent together Sarah was able to teach me the tools necessary to learn an accent and also help prepare me for my audition.
I was very daunted when I was told two weeks before shooting that my character on Underbelly was no longer a Kiwi and now had a strong Lancashire accent.
In fact daunted would probably be the understatement of the century!
However, Sarah soon came to the rescue and with her help the whole process was far easier than I had anticipated. She broke down every line with me and her support filled me with the confidence I needed.
I would definitely call on her again should the situation arise.
