Meet Sarah Valentine
Learn A Little About Me...
Welcome, I’m Sarah Valentine, I am an expert in teaching dialects and accents. I’m available for coaching and can teach you how to sound authentic.
I can help you learn all the skills you need to improve your accent and sound pitch perfect. Speaking with a different accent or dialect can be quite daunting but my methods allow the you to feel comfortable so that you can relax into the role and sound like a local.
I coach Actors for Acting, Dialect and Accents in the Film and TV industry and my accents include all UK, European and Standard American.
I started coaching due to a strong demand for my skill and an innate ability to make my clients feel relaxed and comfortable whilst providing tools to help anyone learn to speak with an accent or new dialect.
Coaching and training can be done via Skype if you are not local to me in Auckland, New Zealand.
Contact me today to discuss your requirements and please see my list of accents for actors, as well as other voice coaching services I offer to help your improve your accent.

“I contacted Sarah as I had an audition requiring a Scottish accent and I was finding it very difficult. Sarah was very generous and at very short notice was able to work with me on the accent and script. Her great teaching style and expertise saw my accent improve dramatically. I went into the audition room much more confident thanks to her. Due to my enjoyment of and the effectiveness of her coaching, I went to her again to up-skill in the Irish and Standard American accents. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone.”Chelsea Tobin

“I found Sarah an absolute pleasure to work with. She put all my nerves to ease and her patience, composure and professionalism was of a high standard. I would definitely return to her if I ever needed other or further accent coaching. Thank you Sarah”Marius Botha
“Sarah is friendly, fun, down-to-earth, professional, and an accent guru. She helped me with a New Zealand accent for a national TVC campaign for a major brand. I had never really done an NZ accent, so I was quite nervous about it. Not only did Sarah help me nail the accent, she also put me at ease and gave me confidence that I needed to relax during the performance. The Skype sessions worked perfectly, and she often did extra preparation for me outside the sessions. I would highly recommend her and plan to use her services in the future.”Rob Harding
