“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
Received a callback after just 1 session!!
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.

Communication is a fundamental aspect of human existence.
Regardless of one’s background or identity, we all have the innate ability to express ourselves in our native language to those around us. However, when our ability to communicate is hindered, it can be an overwhelming and frustrating experience. The thoughts and ideas may be present in our minds, but the connection between our brain and mouth seems to falter, preventing us from expressing ourselves. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy, isolation, and helplessness.
You have permission to Step away from the textbook.
Most language and dialect programs are taught from a technical perspective and may not fully prepare you for real-life situations such as spontaneous conversations with colleagues, job interviews, or public speaking.
Begin with what is on the surface
Understand how you/ your character present to the world will dramatically affect the outcome.
It is all a performance
On stage or in the office, your way of speaking is just a performance showcasing your best skills.
Authenticity is at the nexus of self and performance
Finding that sweet spot can be a challenge, this is where I come in.

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.
