Sarah Valentine

Hi, I’m Sarah, I have worked as an Actor, Casting Director, Agent, and Accent coach. I now predominantly work with actors, voice actors, and others interested in mastering Accents and Dialects from around the world. I don't teach like other teachers, I like to have a lot of fun and do the learning along the way. In my accent courses, I teach my student's unique tips and techniques to gain the skills they need to get that accent sounding just right. You can be rest assured that if completing a one on one or group course I will be there right by your side - picking out every single word and sound so that you leave feeling confident knowing that you have the accent in your tool kit for that next role. For more info on me go to or just IMDB me. I sincerely hope you enjoy working with me and look forward to working with you. Kindest Sarah Valentine

Sarah's teaching is a wonderful blend of being clear and informative but also very warm and encouraging. It is a treat to learn from such an expert in her field who appreciates different learning styles. I would recommend this course for people who are confident at picking up new accents, but also those like myself for whom it is out of their comfort zone as Sarah makes it so straight-forward and un-intimidating. 

This really was an excellent resource and experience. The convenience of online learning at a time that fits in with ones own busy life is ideal. The fact that Sarah actually videos herself saying the the things that we need to then rehearse is such a big help. We can study mouth shapes, hear the sounds and go back over as many times as we need to try and perfect our own accents. I had no idea that writing the words phonetically would be soooo useful. It really helped to tune my ear. This is a course I will be able to revisit again and again to refresh and keep my US accent in tip top shape!
