Job Description

I need an American English speech coach to train a non-native speaker for 1 hour a day, 7 days a week via Phone or Skype, on an ongoing basis. Please place your bid for the one week trial period, or 7 hours of speech coaching.

The person you'll train is a non-native Chinese speaker who is fluent with English. But she needs a lot of fine tuning to perfect her English grammar and pronunciation. The goal is to make her sound like a native American speaker with warm, mature, pleasant voice.

The following qualifications are required:

1.You must be able to do a standard American accent.

2.You should have some experiences coaching others in the area of pronunciation, grammar, and speech.

3.You should have the ability to tell subtle differences in pronunciation.

4.You should be able to explain clearly different tongue positions when pronouncing various vowels, consonants in a word or a sentence.

5.You should understand English grammar very well.

6.You should have a sharp ability to discern any grammar mistakes and correct them.

Note: Part of the interview process requires a 5-10 minute mock coaching with her. I'll monitor the whole mock session to decide your suitability for this job.

Please make sure you can commit 1-2 hours/day, 7 days a week (ongoing) for this project before bidding.
