Helping Students Become Their Own Teachers
Being foreign to all the languages in the opera field, Ü was extremely fortunate to have studied and worked with linguistic experts from all over the world. Enjoying logical, methodical, and economical approaches to pursue her passion in opera, Ü quickly developed systematic ways to help herself advance in languages. Instead of drilling perfect diction syllables by syllables, Ü prefers the way of helping her students become their own teachers.
In addition to help students produce authentic sounds, Ü helps her students remember the rules, teaches her students where to find answers on their own, and help her students to be more independent and self-sufficient.
Currently, Ü's diction sessions focus on English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin, and Minnan. Since she became a mom of two small children (both under 3yo), she offered more online sessions. Group or individual sessions in person may be scheduled in upstate New York or Richmond VA.
