“The result of the training is that change was noticed in my corporate meetings...and I am now able to take client calls and have conversations from India with my US counterparts with much more confidence. They don't have to ask me to repeat any more, and I got my long awaited promotion to “Vice President” this January. Thank you very much for bringing that change in me.”

Before taking her lessons, I was always confused about how to speak fluently, but after taking several lessons I figured out the rhythm and stress in English in a very natural way. I also liked her big warm-hearted smile, it gave me confidence and made me very comfortable.”

Wolney Feirrera, Sr. Project Engineer, MATT Construction

“I work for a small software company and have to talk to customers sometimes. Being Japanese, my English was pretty "flat", with very little intonation, very boring and tiring to listen to for native speakers. That's one of the areas that I have been working on with Elizabeth. I have gained a lot more confidence when I have conference calls after working with her."
