"Communication, the human connection is the key to personal and career success"

In today's world of modern technology, language communication skills are one of the most important skills that a person can acquire.

English is the language of global communication & business. To truly communicate well and comprehend English as it is spoken or written. It goes beyond the high scores on English exams, classroom grammar classes.

The way Engish is spoken and what is meant when it is spoken is essential to learn but it is not taught in any traditional English class.

Albert Einstein once wrote: "It's very difficult to solve a problem using the same method that caused the problem in the first place"

I will teach you what you can not learn and have not learned, that caused you to feel unsure or, lack confidence. I will teach you how the language is used.

Context - Effective proper use of vocabulary - Topical Comprehension related to Reading Writing listening and speaking about specific topics.

After a 25-year International business career, (N. America, C. America, Asia) having worked and collaborated with so many people from different nationalities, backgrounds, and cultures.

Language proficiency in 3 languages was probably the most important skill I’ve ever learned.

My hope is that you will join me to learn English. Should you decide to join me I wish for you to know that you can relax and never have to be shy to ask me questions or ask me for help/advice.

We can talk about, learn about any topic you like. Whether you need to prepare for IELTS exams, Job or University interviews, business negotiations or meeting, review contracts, prepare for a business meeting or important trip. I am confident I can help you and I am even more confident you can become a great, self-confident English speaker.

Friends, colleagues, and acquaintances refer to me as friendly, kind, caring person. My business colleagues consider me to be, honest, knowledgeable, dedicated and professional. I enjoy meeting new people, making new friends and learning new things. I also have a passion for helping others achieve their goals. Achieve success.
