So, if you're here, I guess you want:
- to gain confidence in yourself and your English abilities so that you can speak up easily;
- to stop comparing yourself with others and worrying about what people think of you;
- to feel more relaxed and natural when speaking English, like you do when you speak your own language;
- to take the "Busyness" out of Business English, slow down to speed up;
- a space where you can feel at ease and be yourself, outside a traditional learning environment;
- a "highly-focused" program so that you don't waste time on vocabulary you don't need or on content that doesn't interest you;
- an opportunity to grow in your personal and professional life at the same time as you progress in English;
- your very own Coach to help you do this, with whom you feel supported, encouraged and accountable.
Let's talk about how I can help you
If you're not jumping out of bed in the morning, eager to go to your English session, then we need to talk!
I don't believe in a "one-size fits all" approach to coaching. I only work 1:1 as I believe that you deserve my undivided attention and focus, and my sessions are unique for YOU. In fact, my aim is to bring more of you into your English, make it alive, so that it all becomes more meaningful, memorable and enjoyable to you.
I want to help you get real, be yourself in the language and connect from your heart, not your head. I want to help you find the confidence to leave your comfort zone and speak up so that you can make the impact you want, knowing that you don't have to be perfect to do that.
Our coaching sessions start with a coaching conversation so that I can fully understand where you are now, where you want to be and what is currently stopping you.
My English coaching is not a traditional teaching experience: I combine a coaching approach with completely customized learning content focusing on you, your communication, business, interests, wellbeing and personal growth. This means that you can become more fluent in your English whilst also improving other skills and areas of your life.
Which English levels do I work with?
My coaching sessions are perfect for intermediate to advanced learners of English as well as native speakers of English who want to "get out of a rut".
My 3 Solutions
Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.

The Benefits of Working with Me
What Clients are saying
I was tired of feeling down, unheard and misunderstood. I really did not know where to look for help. I enjoyed working with Kelly, and working on my own ghosts. The results are that she helped me to bring from my unconscious to my conscious some fears and face them. I can now analyse myself and my thoughts clearly.
I realized that maybe what I really needed was something different. I needed to improve my self confidence to push myself beyond my deep barriers. We started coaching sessions and, step by step, I became who I really wanted to be: someone that isn’t scared of changing, who rises to the challenges and who doesn’t choose always her safe zone. Looking behind I see all the successes I got since Kelly is coaching me and now I couldn’t do without her!
Working with Kelly is a real pleasure, her professionalism, patience and interests in life are making her one of the best Coaches I’ve ever met. For me it was a real gift to find a mix of professional coaching and English. She supported me in my life challenges, like to join the EMBA program, and also shared my interests like psychology education. She is very passionate and her great sense of humor made me wait for each lesson. Her proper way of giving feedback helps to keep focus on language improvement. Her highly prepared way of working helped me with discipline. My teenage son will also get his language enhanced with her professional support. Thank you Kelly!!!
Kelly is much more than an English teacher, she’s really an English coach in the sense that she’s able to focus our main discussion on my personal interests and little by little we are sharing a lot about my way of life, my thoughts, my desires and my fears. And I have become aware that I can express myself in English, with depth. I can express a lot of ideas and emotions, I can share points of view extensively and discuss matters. I am so happy to realize that I have some good English bases which have been sleeping in my brain for 20 years, and Kelly has managed for the past 4 months to show me them and to improve them. The consequence of this is that I have gained more confidence. And gaining more confidence, I am happy to speak in English, I speak more, I enjoy writing in English too, I watch movies and I listen to radios programs… Well, I am surprising myself. I am waiting for this day when I will be able to dream and think in English, and I am sure that it will come soon… because after each lesson, Kelly sends to me a lot of tools to improve my vocabulary and my grammar and it’s so useful!
And the most important thing is that Kelly is really attentive. Her kindness, her gentleness and her constant positive support mean that I am waiting with pleasure for each lesson. Thank you so much Kelly for your help and your sincere enthusiasm!!
I have acquired a lot from Kelly, she is professional, she is able to help me to elevate myself to the next level.
Kelly is the best English coach that I have ever met. She is a good listener. She listens deeply and observes, then illuminates what lies beneath the surface that holds me back or moves me forward.
She helps me to clarify my dilemma/problems through a list of insightful questions at and after each coaching session. After each session, Kelly sent a very detailed session note to follow up. She is amazingly resourceful and focused. It was really a fruitful journey. Kelly helps me to create more space for myself, and now I have greater peace of mind.
I always recommend Kelly to friends who have a hump to get over or just need a third party to help them get unstuck.
Grâce à Kelly, sa patience, ses cours très bien ciblés, son authenticité … j’ai vraiment progressé au point de me lancer le défi de partir en terre anglophone seule. Je me suis super bien débrouillée.
Thanks to Kelly, her patience, her personalized lessons, her authenticity… I’ve really improved to the extent that I even set myself the challenge of travelling to England alone. It went really well.
A great pleasure to share 1:1 course with Kelly. Her approach is very hopeful and exciting. After only 10 lessons, I feel more confident with my English! Thank you Kelly!
I have been working with Kelly for a whole year. For me this is a great achievement. Kelly is energetic and proactive, able to catch and develop an interesting and useful discussion. She is not only an excellent teacher of English, but also a coach in self-development. Tips and explanations after each lesson that Kelly sends by email help to consolidate.
When I was assigned to a regional position after I had worked for local roles for the past 16 years, I realized that the situation was much tougher than I anticipated mainly due to my English proficiency and gaps in cultural diversity. I want to tell ‘be prepared before you get into that situation’. However, if you are in a situation similar to mine, you may have a hope. It won’t be too late if you can find an outstanding coach like Kelly. I learned how I can speak better in concise and succinct way, how to make successful presentation and how to obtain desired outcomes from fierce debate and competitions. I prefer to call her a coach, instead of an English teacher, because she carefully listened to me, healed me and provided solutions even when my mental collapsed. Now, I am somewhat confident of my English skills, because I now know how to speak concisely, listen carefully and understand context, ask at the right time and how to continue the whole conversation. I’m so glad I have been able to regularly study with Kelly for the past 3 years, and I will continue to improve my communication skills with her help.
Thank you, Kelly for encouraging me. I’m feeling more confident than before. It was very kind teaching and coaching. So helpful for me.
My favorite teacher ever!
I’ve been studying English since I was 6 and I can definitely say I have never met a coach like Kelly! Her lessons are extremely fine-tuned to student needs and skills and this makes the interaction very comfortable. After only two months I’m feeling more confident and definitely able to understand native speakers better and to speak in public. She’s the person you have to choose if you want really to stand out from the crowd and make an impact in English!
