Drew was superb. Not only was she patient, and encouraging but she was able to tailor the course to our individual needs. And such is her level of expertise, she was even able to teach us different dialects depending on the countries we were planning to visit! As a result, our trip was far more enriching than it would otherwise have been. In summary, a fantastic teacher, with fantastic results.
Drew in my experience is a fantastic teacher. I needed to improve my English quickly due to my new job in a UK company and Drew is helping me a lot. Her method is very effective, she combines both business exercises and intelligent conversation about business situations. In a short time, I noticed my English was more fluent.
