Andy Krieger was born in North Carolina and raised in San Francisco but has spent most of his life in Vancouver, British Columbia. That’s why he speaks with an American accent, the basis of his K- Method accent reduction process.
After graduating from Stanford University, he joined the Peace Corps and spent 2 years teaching in Ethiopia. Andy obtained his teaching certificate in British Columbia and for 10 years, he taught elementary and high school students in the lower mainland of British Columbia.
He has also worked in Los Angeles for Warner Bros. and for Central Casting as an extra- casting director, hiring extras for CHEERS, M.A.S.H., PRETTY WOMAN, ROCKY IV, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and scores of other movies, TV shows, and commercials.
In 1997, while working for the local actors union, he was asked by a U.S. film producer to help some Canadian actors with their speaking techniques. That’s how he developed the K Method language delivery system that teaches students the right tongue and lip positions to pronounce each word without an accent.
Andy has developed a strong reputation as a teacher who makes students feel very comfortable and confident in the learning process. He has successfully taught more than 7,000 students in North America and internationally. Find out more about their stories

“I liked the 5 step method. It’s easy and useful. Andy is patient and keep to help the student with his method. He is one of the best teacher I’ve ever seen.”
– Simon, Guangzhou
” I am deeply impressed by your patience, enthusiasm and mostly, your beautiful American accent. I appreciated it a lot you’ve taught me such a great lesson. And I have learned one thing from you that while speaking, one should speak as slowly as he or she can which can give him or her enough time to think and to put his or her tongue in the right position in order to pronounce right and besides, one should say 2 to 3 words at a time with the help of one hand, thus he or she could get a proper rhythm.”
– Neo, Beijing

– Dr. Jahangir, Indo-Canadian Doctor
