For Accent Reduction and English improvement -
I specialize in working with foreigners who speak English, but who want to overall improve their conversational ability and reduce their accent. As a professional actress who works behind the microphone doing voiceover work, I bring this expertise to my students to help them achieve the music of American English, hear and duplicate our timing and tempo, and put it all together so that no one will know WHERE you're from! I've worked with native Spanish, Portuguese, Saudi Arabian, Hungarian, Filipino and Japanese speakers. Work with book, personalized cd's
Beginning Spanish -
A native Orlandoan, I lived in Mexico City, Mexico for 20 years, speak Spanish fluently, and understand the challenges a foreigner faces when learning a new language. I believe that a good teacher/student bond is most important. Creative interaction and exercises helps build trust, overcome shyness, and teaches students to learn to talk like REAL people in the REAL world (instead of like a book), and makes learning and speaking your new language fun! Learning a language is like Acting...believe in yourself, relax, practice, and enjoy it, and you'll be speaking more like a native before you know it. Work with book and on-line interactive tools
Public Speaking - Throughout the years, I've combined my private language tutoring with on-camera work as an actress in commercials and behind the microphone doing voice over. I am now available to teach public speaking and on-camera skills in private or group sessions. Includes: creative warm-ups, speech organization and structure, body language, projection, coherency, diction, eliminating bad habits, fear issues, improvs, cold reads, commercial and script reads to monologues, wardrobe, hair and personal presentation.
I was the official English voice for Mexico's Televisa Network's English language CBS affiliate "American Network" for 9 years, a member of Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Arts, and Actor's Equity unions.
HobbiesI adore all animals and nature, horseback riding, movies, a good laugh and an adventure. I'm responsibly mature but feel young, and love teaching teens as well as adults.

I highly recommend Cindi Huppel, she is very professional, the tutoring class flows in a relaxing and motivating environment. I'm more confident in my daily conversations.
I am very happy I met Cindi and decided to ask her help with my accent. She is experienced, has excellent and effective teaching skills, very patient and has a wonderful personality. She is able to explain very important rules of the challenging English pronunciation which makes me understand easily why I sound “different”. Her lessons are valuable and my English is quickly improving. I highly recommend her.
I was only trying to develop my accent when I first met Cindi, but because she cared so much, she discovered some other issues about my English, so she helped me a lot in this matter. Some of the most important things that she discovered in my English was the way that i talk, and really tried hard to help me. I appreciate what she has done for me and I hope I can return back to take some lessons with her. Thanks a lot, Cindi. Abdurahman
Cindi Huppel is an amazing teacher! Very committed and patient. I recommend her to everyone who wants to learn a new language in a dynamic and fun way!
