Business English - experienced native English speaker with over 20 years of high-level business experience

Methodology

My approach is always to research what the student is looking for and to come up with an agreed Teaching plan that covers all the areas required in a dove-tailed fashion. Also to bring in real-life experiences of problems faced and solutions applied in tricky business situations and the necessary Business English required to feel comfortable and in control of the process.
