What do you need to focus on?


 I pick up fluency issues as we work together. I only focus on what you need, rather than relying on a prescribed vocabulary and grammar course.

Intercultural Awareness

I can show you how to be a successful communicator in an English-speaking culture. It’s not just about using the right words; it’s about triggering the right response. I can help you gain a better understanding of these cultural aspects.

Business Skills

I can show you how to create and maintain successful business relationships. This will enable you to get the reaction you want. Once the confusion disappears, you will achieve more.

What My Customers Have to Say

“Christopher quickly understood the English needs of our business and the culture of our industry (retail store design and curation). He was focused on taking our professional communication to a higher level, and was particularly helpful in advising on the intercultural aspects of dealing with English-speaking clients. For example, he advised us on how to develop rapport with clients in emails and the best way to present important information in writing. Most of all, we enjoyed working with Christopher and we would recommend him for your business.”
