Roy created a public speaking class for the corporate training department back at the previous place that I worked. He would assign simple topics such as “What’s your favorite activity? What do you do to de-stress?” each week and we would just talk about them in a conference room. Each week Roy would give tips and comments on our performance and also have us practice various skills such as stage movement, hand gestures, pauses, and eye movement. When I presented my first of these mini-speeches in front of everybody, I was super nervous, such that I was staring at the floor a lot of the time and my speech came out very monotonous. At the end of the six-week training, I was able to deliver a very natural and fluent speech with confidence and a smile, as well as utilize my hand gestures to convey emotion and grab the audience's attention. Overall, the six-week training was highly beneficial and I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their public-speaking skills to take a session with Roy, especially those who suffer with Glossophobia.

Nando gives me exactly what I need and want. We discuss, in Italian, subjects that interest me. He provides me with visuals and also recordings so that I can hear other Italian accents. Nando is a patient, knowledgeable instructor and I am extremely satisfied with his teaching techniques. He encourages and challenges me. He's the best!

I highly recommend Arjun to anyone from business professionals to students! I've noticed a lot of improvement in the way I communicate with others in my personal, school, and most importantly business life since I've had the chance to work with Arjun. I'm a little over ten sessions now and I plan to continue working with him because he's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. I originally contacted Arjun to improve my public speaking and business communication skills. As time progressed, Arjun was able to mold his lesson plans into something that would benefit my activities better - including cross-cultural training, pageant speeches, on-stage presence skills, and much much more! (I am a pageant title holder so if you're planning in competing in a pageant or am in one already, I suggest looking for a speech coach to enhance your skills!) Arjun always tries his best to accommodate to my busy schedule and is wonderful to work with. I think the most important thing to look for in a speech coach/business consultant is their personality and patience with your time. Although we schedule our meetings according to an hourly basis (However I purchased the monthly package,) I never feel rushed and am always left feeling like I'm one far step further than I was the last time we met. Thank you Arjun!

It’s been a pleasure to attend classes with Toni. The first lesson is very important, she gives to you her impression about your level and the things you owe to work on, after she emails you resources to help you in that matter. When you are with her she lets you make mistakes to correct you and write them for you, because in that way you’ll be able to work on them. I recommend it to everyone who wants to improve speaking English and also getting more vocabulary and improving the way you talk both in accent and speech.

Whether you're looking to move past paralyzing stage fright, get more comfortable speaking to a group, better connect with your audience, or just want to shine in business or social situations, Lynn will help you achieve your goals! I have struggled with stage fright for as long as I can remember, but never really knew what to do about it. Lynn's class was so helpful - I am feeling not just more comfortable with speaking to a group, but am better able to project my voice, connect with a group, and have even had an easier time blogging lately! As soon as I finished level 1 I signed up for level 2 - the first class was so awesome (Lynn really does make speaking easier and more fun), I am eager to learn more tools for success and really solidify what I learned in level 1. And what a great group of women! There is no better place to feel safe and supported as you improve your speaking skills. Lynn is a phenomenal coach.

    Leigh was my excellent English teacher and she still is even after my graduation. Because Leigh has international experiences and has taught English to international students, she is used to so many types of accents, nationalities and cultural differences. That's what makes Leigh a great English teacher. My personal experiences with her lesson was to correct my pronunciation. She helped me to make proper sound to pronounce words and also taught me the importance of rhythm and flow when you speak. I highly recommend to take Leigh's lesson. You won't regret!

    I took few classes from Chris last year and I must say that it has been phenomenal. Chris has got an amazing depth on different accents, language and grammar. I improved my accent a lot by learning some techniques. I will recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for accent reduction or adopt a different accent or simply talk in the public.

    Hope is an amazing tutor. She is very patient but firm with my daughter and provides encouragement throughout the sessions. My daughter truly looks forward to her time with Hope and makes every effort to have any additional assignments completed. This action from a teenager is a true testament to Hope's skills and her ability to nurture her students. So happy we found her and I would highly recommend Hope to all my family and friends.

    Krista was recommended to me through a client she trains after I noticed my friend starting to really transform. Not only was Krista very thourogh- I specifically asked to do workouts that would sculpt me long, strong and centered. But she went out of her way to really fine tune and finesse the edges of my body that needed a lift, without any bulking involved what so ever. I have a strong yoga practice, but she was able to show me how to specificly target my hips, love handles and low belly- killer deep core work! My frame now is stronger than it's ever been, even after 2 kids and being an athlete off and on my whole life. The big plus isn't energy is up, my patiance for life and others has grown, and in so many ways, my weekly workouts with her have been like therapy.

    Chandra was excellent to work with! Her depth of knowledge, passion, fun personality, and motivation were an asset as I prepared for the launch of my premiere novel. Chandra was vital in the success of the creation and execution of my social media marketing strategy. As well as book speaking opportunities. In addition, she facilitated an Effective Leadership Training for the Executive Board of my non-profit.

    I've been taking personal language tutorial from Daniel for more than a year. His methods specifically tackle areas where I could improve most: grammar, idioms and pronunciation. His feedback is always specific, direct and fruitful. Thanks to his efforts, I reduced my accent and my speech became much more fluent.

    I started out with just a couple of in-person sessions. I liked the custom program that included stretches and low-impact strength training. Playlists were fun to dance to also, and it didn't feel like working out. Then I rolled into the 12 Week online program. The app is super easy to use and convenient. Mirella responds to my every question quickly and tweaks my plan for me, as needed. Thanks for helping me get back on track and pushing me when I needed some extra motivation ;)

    John is fun to work with- his training works! I sought John's help because I was suffering from hoarseness that dramatically compromised my everyday speaking. The hoarseness was partly due to an asthma medication I was using. John taught me methods to work with my tensions and limitations that gave me ease in using my voice. Ultimately I learned better coordination of my whole self enabling me to stop using the medication. John brings a remarkable depth of knowledge and practical experience to his teaching. It is a pleasure to work with him.
