About Missy

Professionally, I am a speech-language pathologist with special certification in accent modification. My Master's degree is Communications Sciences and disorders. I have been practicing for 19 years. I have worked in many settings including clinics, schools and hospitals with a wide range in age from children to adults. I primarily work from home now using teleconferencing to deliver speech services. I began doing that five years ago when I returned home from living overseas in Belgium. Many of my clients still wanted to continue services although my time in Europe was over.

Teleconferencing was the best answer. Meeting in person or by teleconference can be determined by each client.

I have helped clients with learning American sound productions, learning common expressions and grammar use of American English. Previous clients have been native Flemish, French, Spanish and Ibo speakers from Nigeria. One client, in particular, that I worked with was a high profile international lawyer. I edited her public speeches to reflect American sound productions and wording more commonly used by American speakers and writers. My program includes meeting one time per week for 13-weeks with independent practice time required in between, a full analysis of speech sound challenges and tailored speech goals. When the entire program is complete research has shown that clients can expect a 50% increase in intelligibility of American English. More time can be added based on each client's needs, such as grammar, etc.

I have been helping people speak clearer and learn English for nearly two decades. I am eager to help people to communicate to the best of their ability to decrease frustration in your professional or personal lives. I am a published author for teaching speech sounds of American English.

I am excited to meet people from all over the world. I enjoyed living overseas and traveling to many countries. I understand how it feels when you are not understood. I have helped hundreds of people over my career and I would love to help you. My scheduling is flexible and each person I work with will receive a tailored program made just for them.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Phonics

I am a certified by the American Speech Language Hearing Association to teach/provide services in all areas of American English. I am also a certified Accent Reduction Specialist. I carry an Oklahoma and New Mexico teacher's license and an Oklahoma and New Mexico license to practice for Speech-Language Pathology which includes phonics training. I want to focus my tutoring on adults for accent reduction.

Wonderful accent reduction tutor!

Missy does a great job of noticing changes that need to be made to reduce my accent and helping me learn skills to change the way I say things. She's very caring and I can tell it's important to her whether or not I succeed.
