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 amazon.com, so I can help improve your writing skills, build an effective resume, and assist with promotional materials for a marketing campaign in English. Are you negotiating for a big contract? Negotiate with confidence after learning my top ten negotiating tips. If you need help in getting a job, we can work together to perfect your job interviewing skills. 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've visited 51 countries, so I know how difficult it is to learn another language. For beginners, I will help you grow confident learning English and we will have fun doing it! For professionals who are already competent in English, I will show you special communication skills that develop strong professional relationships with all personality types. You can also learn how to assess body language, easily defuse conflict, how to apply humor to boost morale, teamwork, and communication in the workplace.
Learning these skills is essential to advancing your career opportunities in life, and to becoming a MASTER of communication in English.
Contact me for any questions or issues you currently have so that we can arrange a time to talk about your goals as well as your strengths and weaknesses. Remember - investing in yourself is the best investment to make!

"...Once again many thanks for your support and the good interview preparation in the last two weeks. Your lessons are a lot of fun and very goal-oriented. I had my job interview...It took three hours and went very well...The result: I have the job and will start as Managing Director on 01.02.2019. So thank you very much! We will then continue with the lessons from the beginning of January." - Markus, Managing Director, Celle, Germany
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

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, Teacher, 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
