How To Choose An English Language Coach

How To Choose An English Language Coach

As an international business professional, you have specific communication goals to reach your full career potential. You speak English well, but you may desire to be more fluent in business situations that are specific to your industry and its unique terminology. A private English language coach can address those concerns and place you on a path toward confidence and success.

However, we understand it can be challenging to find the right coach or program to help you speak and write with confidence. Let us help you identify some key things you should look for when choosing an English coach.

  • Qualifications & Experience
  • Excellent Reviews from Clients
  • A Relationship Built on Respect
  • A Personalized Experience
  • Answers & Concerns Are Addressed

Is This a Qualified & Experienced English Coach?

You need a coach with professional qualifications and experience. An English degree is great, but has this coach assisted other professionals in fields similar to yours? Notice the coach’s specific expertise (conversational English, written English, online interactions, etc.).

How Did Previous Clients Review This Coach?

Reviews are one of the best ways to find out what you need to know about a coach. The following questions can help you identify qualities to look for in an English language coach.

  • Do their previous clients recommend them?
  • Have clients found them to be helpful and kind?
  • Are they on time for online meetings?
  • Are they prepared and calm?
  • Do they make learning enjoyable?
  • Do they keep the lessons relevant to the client’s industry and jargon?
  • Is there any negative feedback?
  • Did previous clients feel their goals were met?

Will My English Coach Respect Me?

One of the most critical elements of a successful coaching relationship is personalities that work well together. You want a coach you can interact with easily and who respects your expertise in your industry. You should be treated as a peer and professional equal. Our English language coaching relationships are built on mutual respect and a desire to see each other succeed in life and the world.

Is This a Personalized Experience?

Any English language tutoring experience should be tailored to your goals and career field. Your coaching experience needs to include the ability to learn the nuance, vocabulary, and cultural skills necessary to succeed in your specific industry. Ask your potential coach how they will help you succeed and tailor their approach for you.

Are My Concerns Being Addressed?
