English Language Coaching (Communication, Social, Business)
My name is Dolly and I'm here to help you improve your pronunciation, expression and to become a more confident English speaker. My specialization is ineffective communication. I guide and support learners to reach fluency, speaking clearly and naturally using real-life situations through individually designed courses to get them where they want to be. The program is focused upon : 1) Pronunciation Training -  Speak Clearly 2) General English Language Teaching - Speak Correctly 3) Conversation and Communication Skills - Speak Confidently My clients are individuals from all walks of life ranging from students to corporate executives and business owners. They all have different needs for learning the English Language. My aim is to get them communicating quickly and effectively, either in a social or business environment. At the beginning of each course, I will complete a needs analysis report with my student. I ask them why they want or need to learn the English Language. Is it for social or business reasons? If it is for business reasons, are there particular areas they need to focus on such as the language of meetings, negotiations, emails, telephone or networking? Once the needs are identified, I will customize the course and include plenty of variety in the lessons, eg, fluency, vocabulary, listening, reading and role-plays. I believe in engaging with my students and they are always encouraged to express their opinions as this is how one progresses with a language. Please let me know when is a good time to contact you for a chat to move this forward. Best regards, Dolly

Introduction to Accounting for first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors
I have prepared a multi-lesson package for new accounting students discussing & unraveling the importance & relevance of accounting, as well as removing the mystery from accounting. I developed this multi-lesson series for a parent who wanted their student to become intimately familiar with accounting before university classes began. I have revised it to become both a necessary and handy primer for the non-accounting major. It is my perennial favorite to teach both first-year accounting students & non-accounting majors – at the request of both the student or parent!
