“Terry has been really helpful with my Business English.

Terry focused on the topics I wanted to improve upon, and we had significant results in communication, adapting to personality types, and resolving workplace issues. Thanks for your tremendous support.” - MP, IT Specialist, Mountain View, USA

"I was having problem to negotiate a good business deal with a Japanese import company. Terry coached me about Japanese culture and how to successfully negotiate to make everyone happy. The result was US$3.4 million agreement to buy our agricultural products and ship to Japan." RF, Owner, Sta. Catarina, Brazil

"Terry did a terrific job in preparing me for an interview with the CEO of the world’s #1 healthcare company, RMA. Yesterday I just learned that I got the job as COO! I start September 19 (2019). His well-organized tutorials of stating valued personal qualities like determined, persistent, and resourceful, then each followed by a workplace example of achieving results was the perfect blueprint to study, practice, and execute effectively at the job interview. The result speaks for itself. Thanks again for the great advice and support! - AC, Chief Operating Officer, Madrid, Spain

"...Once again many thanks for your support and the good interview preparation in the last two weeks. Your lessons are a lot of fun and very goal-oriented. I had my job interview...It took three hours and went very well...The result: I have the job and will start as Managing Director for Waukesha Electric Systems (SPX Corp.) on 01.02.2019.

I will always keep it in my mind and integrate it into my future presentation and conversation with people I would encounter in the West." - Nathan Yang, Teacher, Taiwan

“Sometimes I struggle with expressing my thoughts in English. I asked Terry to help me with a public presentation for a training session. Terry inspired me to speak from my personal experiences as it related to my topic. His direction was just what I needed to give life to an otherwise dull topic…” - Wenxin Guan, Senior Research Analyst, IMS Health, Los Angeles, CA

"Terry came to the session with a great plan...He was perfectly prepared, so the lesson was well-structured and therefore extremely efficient. We worked on my job interview mistakes from my real job interviews. We also worked on my biggest grammar weakness - prepositions after certain words. I've never seen such a high level of professionalism.” - DK, Software Developer, Krasnodar, Russia
