About Us

Who Are We?

We are a privately held company, incorporated in Delaware.  Our headquarters are located in Boulder, CO.  We employ engineers, trained tutors, and human speech technicians to bring the best possible instruction to our customers.

Our Founder:  Dr. Antonia Johnson

Dr. Antonia Johnson received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences from the University of Colorado-Boulder.  She is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and a member of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.

In the year 2000, Dr. Johnson founded the Center for Talk Mastery in Boulder CO.  As director and owner of the center, she personally helped hundreds of clients learn to speak English clearly while she perfected the Clear Talk Method, a system of teaching clear English that is optimized for quick and easy learning.  Most of this system is incorporated into the system used today.

Dr. Johnson has served as a university instructor in speech-language pathology, designed and conducted graduate student training (1996-2004), and worked as a research assistant for the Wilbur James Gould Voice Research Center in Denver (1993-1995). She has conducted teaching strategy workshops for international and native-born graduate teaching assistants. She has also conducted workshops for improving speech understandability and optimizing communication for other organizations such as retirement communities, Parkinson’s disease support groups, and at conferences for persons with hearing impairments.

Our History:

In 2007, Dr. Johnson, desiring to bring the Clear Talk Method to a larger number of people, teamed up with Dalbert Brandon, a seasoned engineer with an extensive background in signal processing and executive experience.  (Mr. Brandon was a V.P. at America Online during AOL’s heyday). Together they have transformed the original center into Clear Talk Mastery, Inc. whose mission is to use distance learning, modern technology, and Dr. Johnson’s programs to help people all over the world speak intelligible English.
