Client Reviews

I’ve been working with Janet for almost a year and it’s been a great experience working with her. Few reasons I would highly recommend her: 1) She helped me comprehensively with my pronunciation, communication and writing skills. The knowledge I’ve learnt is very practical and hands-on. I’ve made a lot progress during the process and I feel much more confident. 2) She has solid background in linguistics and can point out and correct my pronunciation issues effectively 3) She is easy to work with and is flexible towards scheduling. I had a few times last minute cancellations due to time conflict with work and she was very considerate to reschedule with me. I like to work with her and enjoy all the sessions:)

Wenzhu M. San Carlos, CA

I have been working with Janet on accent and business language training for about a half year. Janet has a systematic approach for pronunciation and is experienced with mandarin-native speakers. She was able to diagnose my pronunciation issues and helped me overcome some of them that had been troubled me for a long time. Her systematic approach provides good principles that I can always refer back to make sure I am still on track. After practicing with Janet, I got feedback from people I worked with that I sounds more confident and nature now! As a non-native speaker pursuing a business career in English environment, taking Janet’s class has been a great investment.

Shuyi C. San Jose, CA

I have worked with Janet for 2 years and extended my training multiple times. My words just can’t express my gratitude to her. She is a highly experienced teacher with tons of knowledge in many areas. She is also compassionate and has a broad understanding of culture differences. We worked on many subjects including English pronunciation, grammar, business communication, and writing. She is always friendly and supportive. Whenever I brought up questions, she always shared her thoughts with me at her best. The open-minded and supportive environment she created helped me tremendously over the past years. More importantly, under her guidance, I developed a strong interest in English literature, an area I had never thought that I would deeply dive into in the past. We went over my essays line by line and sentence by sentence. We discussed the nuances of words in different situations. We polished the structure of my essays together. Her feedback has always provided invaluable insights for me. Oftentimes, I just can’t believe that my English has improved to this level. Nowadays, I often get compliments from other people saying how good my English is.
I highly recommend anyone who is interested in learning English and communication to work with Janet. You can’t go wrong with this.

Jane G. Redwood City, CA

I recommend Janet to any non-native speaker who wants to improve their writing skills and delivery. The sessions are well-structured and customized to the individual. She was able to identify some basic issues with my English delivery and systematically worked on fixing the issues. I was surprised at how much improvement one session a week can make. I’m looking forward to working with her again.

Ilan C. San Jose, CA

I took a four month accent reduction classes with Janet and just recently finished the sessions. I would highly recommend Janet to anyone who are thinking to improve their English pronunciation and delivery. I learnt many expressions and idioms that I was not aware of.

Last but not least, Janet also provided awesome essay editing service. I was in a hurry to write couple essays and booked face-to-face sessions with Janet on very short notice. She was able to walk through my essays sentence by sentence and offered so many valuable feedback. The end result is beyond my highest expectation and I’d love to work with her in future.

Her explanations are logical and easy to understand, making the learning process smooth and enjoyable. Additionally, Janet is an excellent listener. She patiently listens to your questions and concerns, ensuring she understands what you want to ask.
When I started my 10-week course with Janet, she offered me a free session to understand my objectives and identify my areas of weakness. This initial session was crucial for the success of my lessons. Janet tailored my curriculum based on our discussion and clearly explained the content of each subsequent lesson. This approach allowed me to set clear goals before starting the series of lessons and easily track my progress after each session. If I ever felt the need to adjust my priorities, Janet was always open to feedback and accommodating.
If you’re looking to improve your English skills efficiently, I urge you to contact Janet immediately. Her expertise, personalized approach, and dedication to your success make her an outstanding choice for language learning.”

She is undoubtedly the best communication coach I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Janet brings years of experience as a seasoned business communication coach, having worked with numerous talented executives, engineers, and individuals from various industries seeking to enhance their communication skills in both professional and social settings.
During my time at Cisco, I had the privilege of taking private classes with Janet for approximately four years.
