"I had 10 one to one sessions with Lindsey that were just phenomenal. She had a very good approach on showing me what I was doing wrong through exercises that I could observe the proper way of speaking English. My business vocabulary was enhanced and my gravitas improved - which was essential for my career development. Practising and listening how native speakers say / act, it was easier to improve my overall skills and achieve another level in my business English." Marcelo Sanjuan, Advisory Senior Manager, London
"I had 3 months of one-to-one lessons with Lindsey in 2006, which turned out very rewarding. I’m not naturally a quick language learner and have some bad habits from the past. Although I’ve been taught English in school for many years, I still couldn’t get hold of the proper way of English speaking. As known, bad habits are hard to break. Lindsey however was not only very patient to correct me every time but also very professionally and preciously pointed out the mistakes, which I’ve been very grateful about. Although inevitably the lessons came to an end, I still remember her comments and put those tips into practice every day. I hope her teaching will be beneficial to anyone who is like me and being struggling to improve their English speaking but can’t find a good tutor." Longchaun Xu, UBS, London
