About Louise

Hello!

My name is Louise E., and for the past 10 years I have been helping international executives and diplomats converse, make presentations, conduct interviews, modify their accents, and write emails and reports for their work in New York City.

My specialty: making classes interesting and useful. I can help explain American culture - with articles from newspapers, music, and books. For more work-specific needs, we can focus our conversation on your field of work.

Do you ever feel uncomfortable talking with colleagues or clients -- that they don't understand your accent, or you don't understand them? If so, I can help.

I speak conversational French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German and have studied many more. I understand what it's like to learn a language and the various methods to be successful in it.

There are over 100 business professionals and military leaders around the world who have benefited from their experience with me.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you so you can achieve your goals.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been coaching foreign executives in private, one-on-English classes for over 10 years. Many times, students have asked me to read over (or help write) and listen to their presentations. Below is a recent recommendation (posted on LinkedIn) for my public speaking help that describes what I did for this student, a colonel in the Brazilian Navy who works for the United Nations:

My speech to a group of United Nations diplomats and military dignitaries was a success -- and for that, I want to thank my English teacher, Louise. Louise helped edit my 30-minute presentation and also gave me many tips on giving my speech. We worked on, edited, and refined this speech for a few hours a week over several weeks. Louiseā€™s professional and friendly manner, writing expertise, and knowledge of Portuguese, made all the difference for me. I recommend her highly!
