New York Speech Coaching Client Testimonials

Joel is one of the very best coaches--of any subject--that I've ever worked with. I came to Joel to work on improving my vocal projection and resonance to reach my full potential as a speaker in both personal and professional settings. From session one, he gave me concrete strategies that I could use right away. He tailored his instruction to what I needed on a lesson-by-lesson basis. The results have been spectacular. On top of everything, he made the process so fun. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Finding Joel remains one of the big highlights of my professional and personal life. I came to NY Speech Coaching seeking a lofty and rather conceptual goal. I wanted to max out my full potential to be a great storyteller and a charming, persuasive communicator not just with my clients and colleagues but also with my husband, family and friends. Joel is an EXPERT. He knows the meticulous science of voice projection, tone, resonance and more and he teaches you ways to maximize your full body as a vocal instrument. Additionally, Joel is holistic in his teachings. He does a fantastic job of marrying your body and mind through breath work, visualizations and warm up exercises. Lastly, what I love about Joel's coaching style is that he preserves your individual personality and character instead of teaching cookie cutter methods.

I’ve been working towards a director role in the next step in my career. I lacked confidence in communication and giving presentations in front of groups of people. I was referred to New York Speech Coaching by my manager as he has taken courses here and thought I would benefit and help with my nervousness in front of people. Courtney has been super helpful in providing me with ways to get me out of my shell while allowing me to stay true to my personality. Working with Courtney has been a great experience as she provided me with the breathing techniques to help slow down my pace and work on speaking patterns that allowed me to build my confidence in the ability to convey my thoughts in spoken word. I highly recommend New York Speech Coaching and working with Courtney as she has been a great instructor.

Daniel is an enthusiastic coach that brings a lot of attention, experience and knowledge into each of our private sessions. Going into our lessons my goal was to gain confidence and tools I need to bring out my natural voice and ability to communicate and found lessons with Daniel incredibly helpful! I especially appreciate Daniel's philosophy to bring out and celebrate our individuality instead of fitting us into preconceived and conventional molds. I highly recommend Daniel to all who wish to hone their public speaking / communications skills.

There are not enough words to thank Joel for what he has given me. I simply cannot overpraise his thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and practical wisdom. My students and coworkers have all benefited from his fine observation, care -- and, in the words of Bellow, first-class noticing. I came to N.Y.S.C. with essentially no speaking experience whatsoever -- with, in short, only a deep love of my subject -- and, with his help, I have been able to share that reverence and endearment with others. Thank you, Joel.

Getting vocal nodules was one of the worst things to happen to me last year. Working with Courtney Armstrong was one of the BEST things to happen to me last year. I was able to get my nodules down significantly with her. Afterwards, I was able to get them completely cleared up by using the tools she gave me. I am so grateful to how thorough and precise she was on what to do. She was so kind and patient with me. I'm also a voice teacher and I really enjoyed learning the speech aspect of things more from working with her. She is SO knowledgeable and I recommend her to all of my voice students with injuries or just wanting to brush up on their speaking techniques. The speaking voice is so good to work on even if you are a singer. I found I was doing great technique when I was singing and then I would go to speak and forget all the good habits! Courtney helped me to connect the dots. Work with Courtney! She's good people. You will NOT regret it.

Investing in NY Speech Coaching with Joel Rainwater is one of the greatest gifts I’ve given to myself. My progress was palpable almost instantly, and within just a few sessions, I was owning my executive presence, learning how to manage the power of breath, and elevating my confidence in all communications. Joel’s commitment to his students’ improved performance is second to none. Perhaps the greatest gift is that not only will my advancements reverberate in my own career and personal life as I continue my lessons with him, but they’ll also impact countless more that read this testimonial and to whom I refer NY Speech Coaching with Joel. I feel incredibly grateful to have him in my arsenal of continuous personal and professional improvement and I guarantee that you will too.

I would highly recommend Joel Rainwater as an executive presence coach.I connected with Joel soon after landing a new job that required me to take on a leadership role with clients, internal stakeholders, and junior talent. From our first phone conversation, I was impressed by how well he understood my specific goals and challenges. Joel demonstrated a professional and creative approach to our sessions. He had an agenda for every session, although he was also flexible to change our focus depending on my work needs. Joel engaged a wide variety of tools to help me craft my executive presence including visualization, breathing exercises, physical movements and real life situation simulations. Joel was plugged into every minute of our session, he was always spot on his observations, his tactical advice and thoughts. Joel made a significant difference to my professional life. I have been able to leverage our sessions into being a more impactful leader at work with clients, internal stakeholders, and junior talent. While I still have a long journey ahead of me, I am genuinely excited and happy to continue working on my executive presence with Joel Rainwater.

With a superb focus on my specific needs, a gentle and unwavering dedication Caleb has made tackling with deep-rooted bad speech habits enjoyable and fun while keeping me on track with my goals.

Finding John West was one of the best discoveries of my career! I reached out to NY Speech Coaching last February and coordinated with John on content & our team's goals before having him join us for our first NYC sales summit. Within minutes, John won over the room and has left a lasting impression on the team. Since John's first session in 2015, we have welcomed him back twice to teach our global sales team about the importance of voice enhancement, storytelling, speech preparation and much more. John's ability to connect to the audience and immerse himself in their world for a few hours makes him a must-have for all teams looking to strengthen their presentation skills. John has become a friend to the group and we look forward to working with him again in the future.

Public speaking has always been one of my GREATEST fears – this is not a hyperbole in the slightest. Growing up, I was the student who would fake sick, or actually make myself sick, to avoid speaking in front of the class; and on those rare occasions I couldn’t talk my way out of it, I would end up delivering a presentation completely red in the face, shaking like a leaf, and speaking in a voice that made me sound strangled. It should come as no surprise that I carried this fear with me from the classroom to the office, which resulted in me never having the courage to speak in meetings (even small ones!) and getting passed over for promotions. I started my sessions at New York Speech Coaching hopeful, but skeptical that such a long-standing and deep rooted issue could be overcome, but working with Brendan Houdek has been an absolute game changer for me! I went from being the person who ran away from every opportunity to speak, preferring to fake illness rather than stand in front of a room, to a person who confidently contributes in every meeting and practically leaps at any opportunity to speak in front of a group. The amount of co-workers and my leaders who’ve mentioned that they’ve noticed a change in me is both surprising and gratifying. I now speak with confidence and control – and it’s having a huge impact on my life, both professionally and personally.

New York Speech coaches are pros through and through. Not only do they have an expert's command of public speaking principles, but they also know how to teach. Public speaking requires a lot of vulnerability, and they approached each one of our sessions with professionalism, patience, and personalization. As a result of our work together, I saw my audience ratings increase significantly, and feel more confident than ever presenting any kind of subject matter to any audience, anywhere. I am forever grateful for the valuable tools New York Speech Coaching has equipped me with. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to improve their presentation and public speaking skill set.

Brendan's dynamic personality and NYSC's innovative and effective communication techniques have proven to be a winning formula for me. Over the past year, I have increased depth and tone, reduced filler words, learned how to breathe properly, gained confidence in my communication style and even improved body language. Highly recommend Brendan---not only will you make great progress in a short amount of time, but you'll also have fun along the way!

The ability to converse, communicate and connect to diverse audiences is critical both as a singer and media consultant. Interestingly, I was always much further along in confidence as a singer than as a speaker. I've presented many times over the course of my media career, but never felt fully natural doing it, the way I did with singing. As both a speech and vocal (singing) coach, Brendan had just the right skillset for me to close the confidence gap. Before working with him, I'd developed a vocal fry in my speech and often stumbled over my words, primarily due to my improper breathing and “urgency pulse” to speak before I was ready. Not only did it affect me as a performer but my presence as a speaker. With his fun and practical exercises and inspiring philosophies, I've grown tremendously as a communicator. Through better pacing, greater commitment to my words and a much-needed shift in perspective, I've moved closer and closer to my fully authentic self, one who can communicate not just through song, but in everyday life.

My sessions with Brendan have been the most impactful learning experiences of my career. Brendan understood exactly what I wanted to improve in my public speaking, and tailor-made lessons that fit both my needs and my learning style. My goal was to become a better and more calm public speaker; Brendan taught me not only that, but how to control my outward presence and how I’m perceived in any situation. Brendan has a contagious energy that stems from his genuine belief in the power of what he teaches; I always leave our sessions truly inspired.

I have felt insecure and embarrassed about my own voice for as long as I can remember, and I missed out on countless social and professional opportunities as a result. I was convinced I simply had a “bad voice”. New York Speech Coaching made me realize that there was nothing wrong with my voice, I just wasn't using it effectively. They taught me simple, powerful techniques to speak more clearly, confidently, and authentically -- using my own voice to its fullest. The changes have been dramatic. At work, among friends, even when delivering speeches, I feel at ease and can focus completely on getting my message across and connecting with the listener. They are fantastic teachers. I only wish I had met them sooner!

When looking for a new job in financial services, my largest obstacle was the ability to speak at a reasonable pace during interviews. New York Speech Coaching taught me how to slow my rate of speech, control my breathing, and improve the tone of my voice. Thanks to my work with them, I was able to communicate my ideas and experience intelligibly and with confidence to land my dream job. I highly recommend speech lessons with New York Speech Coaching to anyone struggling with similar issues.

Getting a message across in a very effective way was always a target of mine that I didn't know exactly how to address in an optimized way. New York Speech Coaching helped me with structured exercises that go beyond accent reduction, inflection adjustments, urgency pulse management, and other techniques, to further understand and control the main drivers that support the delivery of a clear message. We went through the nuances of American English on a step-by-step basis that really transformed the way I see the role of communication in different aspects. When I started lessons at New York Speech Coaching, I realized the several speech challenges I was facing to get to where I wanted. I was immediately supported by a very customized approach that helped me to demystify and address those issues. This experience at the New York Speech Coaching has been enormously rewarding for me.

As an architect, I consider myself a real professional. However, when I first started giving tours for the AIA New York program I was admittedly a real rookie. The subject matter was clear to me and I was delivering accurate material but why was I so exhausted afterward and why was my voice so strained the next day? Most grueling is an almost three hour trip around Manhattan on a boat with about 80 guests. This being New York, home of the stage, screen, and television, I surmised there must be professional help here. I took a leap of faith and signed up with New York Speech Coaching. From day one they turned me into a disciple. Starting with breathing (of course, why didn’t I know that?) then on to highly specific exercises, they helped me grow in confidence, smoother delivery, and needed vocal health. I’ve gone back for refreshers since then as I was so pleased with the experience. That first leap proved to be critical. Today it is so rewarding to hear guests deliver praise for the tour experience with me - and I can enjoy the rest of the day and don’t have to worry about a strained voice the next morning.

I’ve been a student of New York Speech Coaching for half a year now. They are incredibly knowledgeable about public speaking and have provided me with invaluable techniques to improve my accent, tone, and content. They are empathetic, patient, thoughtful, and genuinely care about my progress. I am very pleased with my progress in significantly increasing my interview skills. More importantly, I am more confident throughout. I highly recommend New York Speech Coaching to anyone that wants to improve or sharpen their interview skills and reduce their accent.

I took some classes in Accent Reduction with New York Speech Coaching. My aim was to get rid of my Italian accent and I really wanted the course to be extremely specific. I didn't want to waste my time with general corrections that I could have found in a book. Therefore, at the very beginning, I asked them to hone in on my mistakes in the pronunciation and help me understand what I did wrong. They were 100% compliant with my request. I got very customized classes and I appreciated their way very much. They were knowledgeable and encouraging and fun to work with! They were always very available to answer my questions and solve my doubts with lots of patience. I found all the teaching effective and purposeful. After only a few classes I became aware of my main mistakes and of the ways I can correct them. Of course, now I need to exercise a lot, but I'm sure I can make it thanks to New York Speech Coaching!

I began taking lessons at New York Speech Coaching to improve my speech patterns overall, but specifically to correct my lisp. In just a few sessions with them, I have learned how to consistently make the proper “s” sound as well as how to address a number of other concerns that made me feel self-conscious while speaking in both professional settings and casual social interactions. Not only is New York Speech Coaching a wealth of knowledge, but they are extremely kind and supportive?—I can't recommend them enough. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with them to achieve a voice that I feel truly represents me and that I'm even happier with!

I’m not an English native speaker and was looking to work on my speaking self-confidence issues that were impeding me to achieve my professional goals. I wanted something more than just a second language class and public speaking courses sounded interesting, that’s when I met Caleb! I worked with Caleb over the course of a few months and can honestly say that our time together has improved my speech tremendously. Not only do I feel like I have control over my voice, but I also have a better understanding of how my body and breath work together to produce sound. Every lesson was perfectly tailored to what I wanted to work on and what he thought would help. If you’re hoping to learn in a warm environment and see real results, this is the place for you. He provided a safe space to practice and work on my anxiety triggers, identified some bad habits I have when speaking and gives me -very easy to follow- directions and exercises to do along the week. After 5 sessions I’m very happy with my progress. I feel way more confident and even received positive feedback at work! I’m very excited about the things I will accomplish after a few more sessions and the impact not only on my work but also on my social life.

I was referred to New York Speech Coaching by a colleague who struggled with giving presentations. Ready to embark on a new career path I was lacking confidence in my own presentation skills, which would be a requirement for my new role. After signing up with New York Speech Coaching it didn't take long for me to start to see the benefits. They not only provided me with the techniques to improve but were also instrumental in building my confidence. There were honestly times I came close to giving up due to frustration but my instructor’s belief in me kept me going. I just recently gave a presentation at work and after a nervous start, I successfully utilized breathing techniques to slow my pace down, recover, and give a great presentation. That wouldn't have been possible without New York Speech Coaching and my GREAT instructor.

The quality that all business leaders possess is excellent communication skills. Until now, I struggled to speak publicly and I would avoid giving presentations. This definitely held me back from growing professionally. Recently, my company president asked me to lead a series of workshops at a national sales kickoff event. I immediately contacted New York Speech Coaching for help. They helped me work through the psychological blocks that inhibited me from expressing myself. We practiced vocal drills to find my “voice”. They taught me to speak slowly from my diaphragm, organize my thoughts and synchronize my voice with the ideas I want to express. They even gave me helpful advice on my presentation. I’m happy to report that the survey results from over 300 participants in attendance voted me as “Favorite Speaker” among all presenters! This wouldn’t have been possible without New York Speech Coaching’s help. They rock!

I worked with New York Speech Coaching for several months. I had recently retired from the pharmaceutical industry and was pursuing both Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training certificates. I wanted to work on and improve my vocal tone and pacing to ensure it would help me feel and bring to students a peaceful, grounded feeling. They were very thorough in their approach during our sessions, in their email communications to me including a summary of the “homework”, and in addressing any questions I had between sessions. The work in the vocal coaching sessions was also remarkably complementary to the work I was learning in my Teacher Training programs. Hence it was both rewarding and a lot of fun. Thanks, New York Speech Coaching!

As a group fitness instructor, my voice is one of my biggest tools. Before coming to New York Speech Coaching, though, I was so uncomfortable using it. They helped me break down each piece--from what to say, when to say it and how to say it--in a way that was both manageable and fun. Most of all, our lessons empowered me to coach with confidence. New York Speech Coaching is knowledgeable, supportive, kind and wonderful to work with. I can't recommend them enough!

Working with New York Speech Coaching was a great experience. They were very approachable and welcoming. I liked that their approach was not about changing my voice or giving confusing pointers, it was about deconstructing how speaking and the voice actually work. From there I was able to not only understand how I was not effectively using my voice, but how to properly use it. I walked away feeling confident that I could gain control over my voice and use it the way I wanted when I wanted.

I strongly recommend New York Speech Coaching. I took 20 speech sessions! We coordinated the sessions according to what was important to me at the moment. For example, we worked on engaging audiences, speaking clearly and deliberately, and commanding the room through posture and demeanor while presenting data. We also worked on not letting emotion get in the way while communicating in a professional setting. I certainly made noticeable improvements. The lessons and tactics I learned are applicable in every situation at a personal and professional level. Definitely this was time and money well spent! Thank you!!

I have been taking lessons from New York Speech Coaching for more than a year, both my colleagues and I noticed a big improvement in my regular presentations. Before taking the lessons, I often found it difficult to bridge the gap between my goal and the feedback of my presentations. Sometimes, I would blame it on the complexity of the subject matters. But after many lessons, notes and practices, I learned not only better techniques to present confidently and effectively, but also important tips on how to prepare for a successful meeting. Whether English is your first or second language, the extra lesson time with New York Speech Coaching is well worth it.

I was nervous about requesting gender-affirming voice and communication changes after embarking on a new transitional journey. But, when I reached out to NYSC they were extremely inclusive and sensitive to my needs and requests. In just a short amount of time, I have made such incredible strides in my journey to feminization of my voice. Caleb has truly provided me the tools required to see amazing results and has continued to foster growth and development in my vocal abilities. From vocal exercises to his extensive scientific knowledge, Caleb has this and so much more information to continue assisting with your speech challenges. I feel as though I am only on the beginning of my vocal journey with Caleb, but I know I will continue with him because he has the resources, experience, knowledge, professionalism, and overall positivity to allow us to see the results I desire. Working as a biopharmaceutics consultant adds a layer of complexity to my schedule and Caleb is always more than willing to accommodate me with flexibility. I would not be where I am today in my journey without the lessons from Caleb and NYSC.

Having presented at many business reviews over my 15 year career, I knew there was substantial room for improvement in my communication and executive presence. I contacted Caleb, expressed my areas of concern and we went to work over the several weeks. I realized an immediate result after only the first few sessions. I am learning techniques that I would never have known without our engagement. His coaching style is tailored to my specific needs and can be put into practice each day I am at work. Our review sessions are so valuable that I will continue working with Caleb for the foreseeable future. I highly recommend Caleb, if you want to improve executive presence while having a clear consistent and confident communication style.

I consider myself an average public speaker and didn’t think I needed an introductory public speaking class but I learned so much from Tricia. I recommend working with Tricia whatever your public speaking skill and comfort level. I took away some important strategies that I had never considered. I am definitely speaking with more confidence after taking her class.
