About Douglas

In my work as a Business English teacher I focus mostly on helping build strong communication skills. Personalized teaching methods and select materials guide my demanding Executive clients to meet their specific language and personal expression targets. By incorporating interpersonal skills drawn from my experience as a mentor and trainer I can greatly increase a client's self-confidence and empower them in the learning experience. In addition I also prepare candidates for entrance to MBA and MIB programs at Harvard, MIT and other well known business schools. I emphasize reaching the levels of fluency in oral and academic written work required to be successful in these demanding programs. I work exclusively with international business professionals representing all higher levels, for instance, CEO's, CFO's, Partners, Directors and Managers. My clients come from all sectors of the market and have included major Multinational companies such as: DuPont, Merck, Monsanto, Microsoft, Mapfre Insurance, Zurich Santander Insurance, Banco Santander, Hitachi, Fujitsu, Pacific Rubiales, PepsiCo, Danone, AB InBev, Coca-Cola, Nordea Bank, Banamex (Banco Nacional de México), Banco Itaú Brazil, Accenture, PWC Worldwide, KPMG and Ernst & Young.

I have been working as a teacher ever since I received my CELTA teaching accreditation over 10 years ago, and have had many opportunities to help my students reach, and surpass, their goals. My approach to learning is based on the belief that anyone can learn anything anytime, that the ability to learn never disappears. I work mainly with adults, people who are looking to improve their professional profile, people looking for that great new job, people who need a little more self-confidence in speaking. We work on pronunciation and accent reduction, we can practice interview techniques, calling on the telephone, and giving presentations. The aspect of my job I like best, and get the most satisfaction from, is seeing people improve and feel able to communicate, when they reach the level to have a conversation, give their opinion, or even tell a good joke!
