Communication is not a one size fits all sort of thing. I’ll help you rediscover your real voice, restore your confidence and refine your communication skills.

“After 3 months of classes with Gracia, I became not only self confident in English, but self confident in general”

– Kristina Korepina / Talent Acquisition Partner

Client Testimonial

Working with Gracia was an amazing and eye opening experience, she was able to help me develop my American accent by first thinking about character, movement, and body. Primarily her approach was placing importance on the general ‘vibe’ and feeling of what it means to Be an American in terms of culture. This really helped me, in terms of remembering that accent was only one part of the equation. I ended up auditioning and getting a recall and I have Gracia to thank for this! I would highly recommend and lovely to work with.

Speaking to others is one of the most important things we do as human beings. No matter where you’re from or who you are, you know exactly how to communicate in your native language to those around you. But what happens when your ability to communicate is suppressed? What happens when the words just won’t come out? You can think it, you can picture it, but the connection between your brain and your mouth seems to stop before it starts. 

You have permission to Step away from the textbook.

Most language and dialect programs programs are taught from a technical perspective. This is all great when you’re getting started, however, not so much when you’re in a spontaneous conversation with colleagues, looking to advance your career or performing in front of the world. 


  1. Begin with what is on the surface
    Understand how you/ your character present to the world will dramatically affect the outcome.
  2. It is all a performance
    On stage or in the office, your way of speaking is just a performance showcasing your best skills.
  3. Authenticity is at the nexus of self and performance 
    Finding that sweet spot can be a challenge, this is where I come in.
  4. Change your perspective and improve your speech
    Take a step back and look at your needs/ goals/ objectives in a whole new way.

These have nothing to do with a generic topics found in a textbook, written by someone who’s never met you or knows anything about your career path or industry. 

It’s not about studying something new, It’s about taking ownership of your own communication and ensuring everything you’ve learned works for you.  You’ve done the hard part, you’ve advanced your career and proven you can do unbelievable things. Now is not the time to second guess your own voice

Hey, Hey, Hello!

I’m Gracia Burns, I coach Business English and American Dialects to professionals and creatives all around the world. I work with individuals who are looking to take their communication skills to the next level.  While teaching abroad I realized my students were missing out on the most valuable information they were paying for, how to speak authentically. 

 After 30 years as a classical cellist and 20 years in office administration I know for a fact that Business English and performing aren’t one size fits all. While teaching abroad I quickly refocused my lesson plans and began asking students very direct questions about their jobs, their career paths and themselves. This was the key to unlocking their potential and advancing their communication skills. The textbooks were a starting point. But the real lessons were found in discovering who you are, not who a generic textbook says you should be.
