I will help you develop skills in the 4 key test areas:
Ace your interview!! As a manager working for GE, I carried out many interviews for all types of positions from low to high level. If you have an interview approaching for a new job, a college or university or an MBA application, my interview class will inspire you with the confidence you need to pass the interview and land you your dream job. In general, I recommend taking 3 x 50min classes to cover all of the subject areas that I would like to cover including: questions about your current employment, you and your abilities, your career objectives and the future, team working skills and some more unusual questions that you won’t find in any text books or web articles. In addition, I can review your CV for content, layout and overall appearance and correct any errors or improve it’s appeal to your future employer.
As the global economy recovers, English is being used more and more in the market place to bolster business relationships and build new ones. Using my twenty years of experience in commerce at management level, I can guide you through business vocabulary and prepare you for face-to-face meetings, telephone conversations, writing emails and casual or formal business conversations with your colleagues. I generally use text book material or worksheets but I can tailor your session to meet your business requirements.
Because of my scientific background, I have an extreme eye for detail in the use of grammar or the appropriate use of vocabulary and I use this skill when I check your document. I can proofread, correct and edit any type of document that requires checking. You can send your document (by email) in any format (MS Word, Excel, Powerpoint or PDF) and I will use the ‘track changes‘ function to highlight my corrections or changes. Your document will then be sent back to you fully corrected and ready for use. I can usually check any document (up to 2,000 words) within 24hrs of it being received but please contact me for an estimate for longer documents.
For an estimated cost, please send the document attached to the ‘Contact / Booking form’ and I will reply as soon as possible with the cost. For guidance, my proofreading rate is approximately 2.00 US Cents per word (so for example: $20 for 1,000 words, $40 for 2,000 words etc).
Living and working in SE Asia has enabled me to understand what it is that learners of English find most difficult to grasp. My general English lessons will help you develop your English skills in the following areas: general conversation, vocabulary and phrase building, reading, comprehension, listening and the use of idioms. I can use worksheets that cover all of these areas or I can just guide you through English conversation using a set of questions where you answer and I listen carefully and correct any mistakes in your answer. I will provide any lesson material before the lesson starts and I will provide feedback about your progress after the lesson.
