Su di me

-- Certified ESL/EFL Teacher with an MBA & Global Expertise--
-- SPECIAL OFFER: 10% coupon voucher on classes using code SUCCESS --
Hello, I'm Kolby. Thank you for your interest in my profile! I have been teaching ESL/EFL since 2014. I grew up in the United States, but my career has since taken me to Argentina, Mexico, and now Germany where I live after studying for an MBA in International Business Consulting.

Though I have experience with academic English and satisfactory test preparation (IELTS), my passion has always been to help professionals in the areas such as Business Communication, Interview Preparation, and Presentation Skills. At the same time, I also coach corporate courses in the area of Intercultural Communication with coursework covering areas such as Relocation, Virtual Success, Learning & Development, E-mail Etiquette and Global Leadership.

My teaching style consists of building a relationship with you through a conversation based class to evaluate your individual needs to apply extra practice- and personalized curriculum- where you need it most. I don't promise "miracles" as my students say, but I do vow to invest 100% in your development towards success. Are you a good investment?

See you in class! :)
