ESL TutoringImprove Your English & Increase Your Impact!
If English is not your first language, communicating at work can often present challenges. Issues around pronunciation, grammar, conversation skills, jargon, and writing skills may be holding you back from making the impact you’d like to have in your company.
Learning a new language takes time. Research shows it can take 5-8 years for a person to learn a second language on par with native speakers. In the meantime, employers may be placing pressure on or have unreal expectations of those who deliver less-than-perfect written reports or misspeak during a meeting. Perhaps your own fear of mispronunciation or misunderstanding keeps you from feeling comfortable enough to jump in and share your ideas.
If your workplace doesn’t offer ESL classes, one-on-one ESL tutoring may be the answer for you, a safe place where you can improve your English communication skills out of the spotlight and away from those you fear making mistakes in front of. ESL tutors can customize sessions for your particular challenges and goals and fluency and accuracy can improve quickly.

It has been a great pleasure working with Jill. Jill is very punctual, poised, articulate and professional in all communication. My focus is related to pronunciation-how to pronounce words better so your audiences can understand. Jill helped me become more aware of certain phonetics I need to pay particular attention to and create personalized plans for me to tackle the obstacles.
