INTENSIVE ENGLISH CLASSES FOR ACADEMIC PROFESSIONALS

In Meeting

College/University Instructors, Post Docs, Ph.D. Students, etc.

Professionals to James (often): “Nobody corrects me the way you do. I haven’t been able to get what you do from anyone else.”

One of James Kyrouz’s specialties is helping academic professionals improve their English and presentation skills. He shares his extensive knowledge and tips combined with grammar and pronunciation in speaking corrections, fluency work of all kinds, and ways to handle specific situations.

The exciting truth is that the class is based on what the individual professional needs at any given moment. James, often working spontaneously, can deliver the goods.

During his over 25 years of teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), James has guided international graduate students, post docs, and others from MIT, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, BU, Northeastern University, Duke, and other institutions, including hospitals. He also worked with students and teachers in groups during his notable work for Boston-area English language schools.

 

Interestingly, for those who need or desire more respect and/or appreciation from their students and/or colleagues, James can show you approaches and give you words to say that can create powerful, positive energy in your classroom and/or in your working environment.

BUSINESS FLUENCY – Skype and in-Person Lessons 

This course can be a godsend for the businessman/woman (or an aspiring future one) that needs to know exactly what to say in some business situations, perhaps including correspondence, such as e-mail.

The class is similar to Fluency Development except the focus is mainly on business interactions and dealings, possibly incorporating the use of the telephone and diversified forms of communication.

Individuals who need assistance with presentations and speeches will most likely find this class helpful.

Because James has some experience with sales and business, he is happy to teach approaches to small talk and small talk content, if needed.  He also has experience with selling and closing techniques as well as fund-raising.

As with almost all of James’ classes, this fluency class has no curriculum. You benefit from James’ over 25 years of experience teaching ESL English, his sales and business work (if or as needed), and his vast life experience (as desired). The result? A flexible and creative course gets organized, class by class, around your needs.

This course is not recommended as a starting place for those who have challenging accent and pronunciation problems unless the focus will be strictly on writing. Those prospective students would be better beginning with the accent reduction course.

If you have been searching for that English teacher who can lead you to and through the door of fluency, who has many answers and can handle challenging questions about English that may help you go further in the business world, then James may very well be that person for you.
