English for executives working in all types of professions

I’m a native English business professional with over 40 years of international experience. During my career I’ve lived and worked in the United States, Scotland and Belgium while doing business in all regions of the world. I have worked at all lèves of management and in addition to running a business for a private company have also owned and started two other businesses on my own.

I offer the opportunity for professionals to use me as a sounding board for their activities while simultaneously fine-tuning their use of English. I’ve been doing this activity for over ten years and can provide references on request. My clients have been diverse who work in the fields of law, medicine, science, government, manufacturing, services, etc. My diverse professional and educational background gives me the ability to converse on virtually any subject that my clients require.

Phonetic, NLP, EFL and cognitive EQ/ IQ retraining is also part of my curriculum format and these intricately specialized techniques are highly sort after particularly in middle school and university levels. Having developed break through curriculum for the state government of Victoria in Australia in 2010 the LEAD ME program which is now well established in over 400 schools in Victoria Australia and has also been introduced into a school in the Philippines and most recently in homes a Daycare center and University in Lille France.

Asher
English conversation for Students, Adults and Children
My name is Asher, I am an English native speaker born in Canada. I have a lot of experience teaching people correct and most importantly, fluent conversation skills in English. I will help you become more confident and free to express yourself within the vocabulary that you require and desire to have. I believe in a positive playful approach to language that allows for more flow during a conversation. I think that correct use of grammar will come through joyful practice and within a real and interesting conversation between us. I am well educated in many different subjects and can find interest in most things which means that we are likely to have a very flowing conversation. This will, with no doubt, facilitate the learning process. I am fluent as well in French and Swedish.
