What We Do

We empower people to do their best work

Our personal online language, communication and leadership coaching helps both native and non-native English speakers to communicate and lead with confidence in the English-speaking workplace. As we help individuals and teams to achieve their goals, we make their companies more productive, innovative and inclusive.

What We Believe

We believe people and companies benefit from authentic voice

People make their most meaningful contributions when they are free to communicate in a way that feels true to who they are. We coach people to communicate not only effectively, but authentically.

How Lingo Live began

While working on a deal in Mexico as an analyst at GE, Tyler Muse realized his high school Spanish wasn’t going to cut it. He responded to a Craigslist ad posted by Kathe Solares, a Spanish teacher in Guatemala.

As Tyler’s friendship with Kathe grew, he became fluent in Spanish and found he could confidently express himself in groups of native speakers. He wondered why there wasn’t already an online language program based on one-on-one relationships. In 2012, he created Lingo Live.

Tyler and the Lingo Live team developed a Skills-Based Coaching model that allows learners to not only improve their language proficiency, but also their communication and leadership skills so they can grow as collaborators and managers in the workplace.
