Dialects may actually be learned more efficiently face-to-face via the Internet.
Though I teach many accents, and can help you

with the one you immediately need...

THE FIRST ONE TO LEARN

from which you will get the most mileage is 

BRITISH RECEIVED
CONSIDER ALL THE PLAYS THAT REQUIRE BRITISH RECEIVED: 
The plays of George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, Caryl Churchill, David Hare, Noel Coward, Michael Frayn, Harold Pinter, Tom Stoppard, (Maybe even Shakespeare?)

 Techniques you may not have learned in acting school:
•The Dossier
•The Given Circumstances
•The Relationships
•The Conflict
•The Tactics 
•The Appearance
•The Speech
•The Physicality
•The Subtext
•The Diary

Besides giving you an all-important skill for your acting future, it also will instill other much-needed qualities:
--the ability to emphasize the important words so  the message is not lost,
--to speak more quickly and still be understood,
--enhance your articulation as few other exercises can.  


The “Received” has benefits that translate easily to Standard American:
--a wider range of inflection.  
--much more understandable to the audience.  
--Translatable into an accent without the “posh.”

90 seconds to get the part! 
It’s good to be prepared. 
Bring any ~ 90-sec. memorized modern monologue.
•Analyze: character, given circumstance, beats, tone.
•Let the subtext lead you to find the right gestures and inflections to express the character.
•Specific direction on your monologue from a pro.
•Learn tactics to attack the ever-daunting “Cold Read.”
•“What a Director Looks For."
