À propos de moi

Hi, my name is Terry Braverman, I have 25 years of teaching and training experience in the business world, teaching communication and business relationship skills at Fortune 500 companies, healthcare centers and education facilities worldwide.

I wrote and self-published a book which became a best seller on, so I can help improve your writing skills, build an effective resume, and assist with promotional materials for a marketing campaign in English. If you need help in getting a job, we can work together to perfect your job interviewing skills too. If you are a speaker at a conference, I can prepare you for an English-speaking audience. These speaking and writing skills will speed up your professional career development.

I have visited 49 countries so I know how difficult it is to learn another language. For beginners, I will help you grow confident with English and we will have fun doing it! For professionals who are already competent with English, I will show you special communication skills that develop strong professional relationships with all personality types.

Learning these skills is essential to advancing your career opportunities in life, and to becoming a MASTER of communication in English.

Contact me if you have any questions so that we can arrange a time to talk about your goals as well as your strengths and weaknesses and we can go from there. Remember - investing in yourself is the best investment that can be made!

“Terry came to the session with a great plan...He was perfectly prepared, so the lesson was well-structured and therefore extremely efficient. We worked on my job interview mistakes from my real job interviews. We also worked on my biggest grammar weakness - prepositions after certain words. I've never seen such a high level of professionalism.” - DK, Software Developer, Krasnodar, Russia

"Terry is a great teacher! His lessons are fun and very helpful. I recommend everyone to book his lessons." - Bas, Netherlands

"It was my first class. Terry looked very professional and experienced, so I think that he can help in my personal goals." - Mateus, Brazil

"Terry, thank you so much for your teaching. I enjoyed talking with you and I learned a lot from you. You gave me a gift of the lifetime: humor. I will always keep it in my mind and integrate it into my future presentation and conversation with people I would encounter in the West." - Nathan Yang, Taiwan

“Sometimes I struggle with expressing my thoughts in English. I asked Terry to help me with a public presentation for a training session. Terry inspired me to speak from my personal experiences as it related to my topic. His direction was just what I needed to give life to an otherwise dull topic…” - Wenxin Guan, Senior Research Analyst, IMS Health, Los Angeles, CA
