Our coaches are not only language and communication experts, they are also trusted confidants and cultural guides. They know what learners need to learn to advance their careers – and to feel more at home in the workplace. Most importantly, they understand that effective English communication is more than putting the right words in the right order. It’s about situating learning in a real-word context. And in large part, it’s about building confidence.
We look for coaches who light up the screen. They come from all over the world. They are linguists, novelists, scuba divers and improvisers. Some have TOEFL certifications, some have PhDs. Others are simply enthralling teachers with a track record of impact. No matter their background, they all have a proven track record of developing lasting relationships with learners. As a result, they know how to identify and address communication barriers with laser precision.
