"Working with James has been an unbelievable experience because of his ability for strategic thinking. I think the best way to learn business English is to learn this from an experienced businessman. James does both thoroughly. I have been studying with James for 11 months. After the first three months, I could easily understand meeting vocabulary that is used during the meetings. Thanks to these lessons, I got enough self-confidence to participate in international meetings. Then I went to the USA for an international conference and met with professionals and had a chance to participate in the meetings in English. Additionally, he has deep knowledge of how to develop business skills and has a high level of intellectuality. As a company owner, he has lots of experience in very specific subjects such as Error and Omissions Insurance (E&O), CRM, ERP systems, and so on. Every lesson I did with James was fascinating for me. Thank you very much, James." Mehmet Y., Ph.D., P.E., Istanbul, Turkey "If improving your English ability is the only thing you expect from working with James, you are certainly wrong. I have been working with James for almost a year and I knew he is the tutor I am looking for in the very first 30-minute trial session. Different from other "language teachers", James is a successful entrepreneur who has years of experience in the real business world. No matter whether you are seeking guidance on resume and interview preparation, presentation rehearsal, or any business-related topic, you can definitely ask for help from this amazing tutor. James helps not only improving my English and business knowledge but also building self-confidence throughout the year. James is more than a tutor, he is surely a mentor as well. " Joanne C., Taipei, Taiwan "My name is Saleh A. from Saudi Arabia. I have been studying with Mr. James Gonzalez for more than 2 years now. He is kind, patient, funny, and a highly-skilled tutor. He helped me with different aspects of life. He helped me to reach my goal and become fluent in English. In addition, he made my resume look professional and rehearses with me how to be confident and give a good impression to the interviewer. I'm delighted to be one of his students because he changed my life for the better. Thank you, Sir!" "James has been tutoring me for about 3 years now and my English significantly improved through those years. I took my IELTS last year, which he prepared me for. He worked hard to improve my English skills and l got an overall score of 7 and my speaking score was 8. I wasn’t surprised by my scores because he made a lot of effort to evolve my reading, writing, listening, and my speaking skills." Sara H. , Cairo, Egypt James is an unbelievable tutor for students. I have known him for more than 2 years. First, I met him at another English platform. We started with business English and he taught me many good words. He encouraged me and supported me in using new words in sentences. While you are speaking, he understands your feelings and what you want to say. He ameliorates your English with good words. During a meeting, when you speak English, attendees observe you and pay attention to your speech. Therefore, nobody has the courage to question something you said because your explanation will be impeccable with good words. But, he has a rule. The only rule he has is sustainability for working. If you are a novice in English, you must work with him. You will never regret working with James because you will not waste time with odds and ends questions such as “How are you?” “What do you want today?” “Do you like traveling?”. You will gain tangible results with James. Improve yourself with him. Cenk O. Istanbul, Turkey I am a native English speaker and American businessman. The rapid improvement of my students' English fluency is my goal! I have tutored over 1900 students around the world and many are still friends today. I believe that a student should feel value in every class and I prepare ahead of time for each student, keeping track of our work history and continually moving forward in an interesting and engaging manner to keep the student excited with their progress. My style is patient and informative, yet detailed. Your English will continually improve in fluency, your precise accuracy will continually be refined, and your confidence in interacting in English in any setting will grow exponentially. • Pertinent teaching materials – I find many teaching materials sadly lacking in real-world business applications. To surmount this, I developed a list of English vocabulary words that I was accustomed to routinely hearing from my professional employees. Rather than rote memorization, I present short exposures in fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice formats to make your retention enjoyable and fun. • Interesting reading materials – Reading out loud to me is a great way to check your pronunciation and comprehension. I carefully select reading materials that correspond to your specific major or field of work. In this manner, you are not only expanding your English proficiency, but learning English phrases and terminology that will benefit your career. • Targeted free conversation – Many of my students are skilled at casual conversation or “small talk”. While certainly desirable, this does little to increase your confidence for a job interview in English, or teleconferencing with your native English-speaking peers. I specifically target your career or travel objective and elicit an English conversation with you to form replies you will use frequently in the future. • Real-world experience – I have spent 50 years in the business world, as an employee, as an entrepreneur, and as an employer. I have conducted countless seminars and presentations, both to my peers, potential clients, and to the general public. I have conducted hundreds of job interviews of business and technical professionals. As a business owner, I have participated with other business owners, serving as board directors, organizing charitable events, and managing community foundations. Everything I expose you to is designed to mature you into successful accomplishments of your career goals, utilizing English as an international asset. I like to push my students forward in a fun, friendly manner. I believe a student should be excited for our next session together. The greatest complaint I have had as a tutor has been the battle to schedule a class with me, as I had more than fifty active students trying to schedule in my 30 hour week. It is flattering that the students desire my assistance. I take a sincere interest in my students' progress, and they find it encouraging and supportive of their efforts.
