Native American English Speaker in Kochi Helps You With Pronunciation, Accent and More

Want to be understood by Americans and understand Americans better?  
Is communication at work with American counterparts, clients or colleagues difficult because of the communication gap?  

Hello, everyone, I am Jennifer Kumar. I am a native American English speaker working in Kochi, India. I am here to help you learn to tune your ear and your vocal apparatus to hear and speak more clearly with Americans.
