About Les

When you're speaking, do your business clients and associates sometimes have a blank look in their eyes? Have you wished you could work with private tutor who could help you communicate better? If so, we should talk about working together.

Using my listening skills and tutoring experience, I will be able to "Americanize" your business and personal conversational English. Your lessons will be based on my ability to listen carefully to your specific concerns and my experience working with well-educated adults. Some lessons will be on the specific vocabulary of your industry or specialty. Other lessons will be on general conversational English. Also, we will work on your enunciation, pronunciation, business vocabulary and your understanding of figures of speech and idioms.

Regarding my qualifications, I’m a past Co-Chair of the Group English Conversation Program at Princeton University run by The Friends of the Davis International Center. This is a group of dedicated volunteers who help international scholars and spouses and other members of the Princeton University Community with their conversation skills. I also taught Advanced Conversation to adults at the YWCA of Princeton.

As a businessman, teacher and Advanced English Conversation Tutor, I will be able to use my experience to craft lessons to address your specific concerns. My goal is for you to improve your speaking skills and to increase your confidence while speaking with native speakers. Please contact me through Wyzant, so we can schedule a free phone consultation (up to 15 minutes). The purpose of the call will be to find out how I can help you and for you to evaluate my communication skills.
