About Jennifer

Hi everyone!

I help international Fortune 500 executives (CEOs, CFOs, HR professionals, and more) improve their proficiency in all areas of business communication.

We can work on public speaking, preparing for interviews, or crafting effective CVs and LinkedIn profiles. I specialize in business writing training that enables executives to harness writing as a leadership and competitive tool.

I'm a native English speaker with a B.A. in English, an M.S. in Corporate and Organizational Communication, and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I have extensive English teaching experience and I'm a compassionate person who loves reading and writing, and I try to communicate my love of learning to my students.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success. I am happy to meet with you to discuss your tutoring goals, and I offer the first meeting for free. We can pick a spot to meet that works for both of us. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I have a Master's in Corporate and Organizational Communication so I am familiar with what companies are looking for in candidates. Part of what I do in teaching Business English is help students with their resumes and cover letters. I also teach interview prep - whether for jobs interviews or school application interviews.

English

We will work together to develop a program designed to improve your English communication skills. We can work on reading, writing, public speaking, or any other aspect of the language that you need help with.

ESL/ESOL

We will work together to develop a program designed to improve your English communication skills. We can work on reading, writing, public speaking, or any other aspect of the language that you need help with.

Grammar

I teach every level of grammar from Beginner to Advanced.

Literature

Reading literature is a wonderful way to expand your English skills. I've always loved to read and I will try to help you get to a place where you can enjoy reading in English as much as in your native language.

Proofreading

I can help you revise your written work, whether it is academic or professional.

Material I've worked on:
Business
Scientific
Technical - IT, Engineering
Medical
English
History

We will work together so that the final product is a true reflection of your thoughts. In my former career I was a proofreader and an editor, so I have years of experience improving written work.

Public Speaking

I have a Master's in Communication, as as part of my program I studied and practiced public speaking. I am currently teaching Business English, and I frequently have students who need to improve their public speaking skills for work or for school. I believe that with enough practice we can all become competent public speakers.

Vocabulary

We can build your vocabulary in any subject area you wish - business, science, medicine, TOEFL, etc. I will prepare lists of words for you or we can work with lists you already have from school or from your job.

Writing

How many times have we heard the adage “first impressions are lasting impressions.” It is critical that we make great first impressions, because increasingly we present ourselves for the very first time in writing.

We make written applications to the college or university of our choice. We submit essays and theses to our teachers and professors in our efforts to establish excellent academic records. After we complete our studies and venture out pursuing a profession, we find that employers now require us to submit our resumes online.

If you want to be one step ahead of the competition by improving your writing, let me help. I look forward to hearing from you.
