Other Areas of Focus:

Customer Service

David has spent his entire work-life in customer service. He has recognized during his teaching experience that the language of customer service has been overlooked in modern English training.  Numerous international companies face daily, essential client-facing opportunities in English, from simple vocabulary to advanced customer service skills.  It is important to have confident and knowledgeable employees at the forefront of a globalized marketplace.  

 

American Culture & Sports

One of the best ways to learn about English and America is through sports, seriously! Sports and American culture are one-in-the-same.  Learn rich vocabulary from the basics of popular American sports. Discover the uniqueness of American cities and citizens across the country while deep-diving into popular franchises. Absorb business knowledge by studying the practices of powerful front offices.  Even if you believe sports aren’t interesting, it is surely one of the best ways to come know an essential aspect of American culture. 

 

Partner Classes

Group Zoom lessons can get confusing. Individual lessons can be daunting. Partner classes are a perfect in-between in our current climate. Enrolling in an English class with a friend, colleague or significant other can be extremely beneficial.
