Private In-Home And Online Diction Tutoring

The reason why speaking English with 100% expertise can be a challenge is because English language schools and testing facilities focus only on four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking, but do not include proper pronunciation. Without pronunciation training, your vast knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary may be rendered inadequate and this reality can hold you back from being successful when stepping in the forefront to represent your company or climbing that proverbial corporate ladder. And if you are a mother of a child, your lack of good pronunciation may create an impediment to your child's literacy. Work with me and let me guide you to appropriate consonant and vowel usage and more Standard English British, so your communications are precise. We will remove all obstacles of miscommunication. BOOK YOUR PRIVATE CLASS NOW. Call 08170768650.

Socially Adept

Practicing good manners in the public shows that you have regard for others. Teach your child to use good manners in the public.

Exercise Wisdom

New week tips. There are important, but tricky connections who will employ you because of your unique knowledge lens and strength to execute for them business they know nothing of. Once they have an idea of the business through you, it is not uncommon for these sorts of people to turn against you diving into the condition that might bring you under the subject of anger and foolishness to give up the business and your reward. If you are like me who once used to be rash and throw away everything, I advise you turn a new leaf to become a wise entrepreneur. When you experience the vile of the likes of these people, stay calm. Avoid reacting emotionally. Think fast and essentially. Whatever happens, make sure not to give up your reward. Also, restrain from ruining the strategic relationship. As tricky as these people might be, you will need them a lot in your career as much as they will need you. No Emotional Charges. Be Calm. Be Powerful. Simply be Wise like the OWL.


The principles that preside over etiquette are based on an awareness of others and respect. Parents prompt your child to treat others kindly in all situation.

More Than Bravery

As most of us know, bravery doesn't pay the bills in business! To be successful and to stay in business we need more than bravery. As you maneuver your way through your business journey like me, I encourage you to add the instrument of hard work, skill, perseverance, passion, integrity, openness and honesty to create an active and prosperous business that will outlive you.

True Stories From The DRS Manners Counter

Q: “My stepmother is twenty years junior to me in age so I call her ‘Ife.' Although, my father is not happy I call her by her name, but I can't address her in any other manner than this. What should my friends call her?”
A: They should call her Mrs. Whatever-Your Family Last-Name-Is or accord her by her child's name if she has any yet, and I would suggest you also do the same. Don't forget that many of the guidelines surrounding etiquette instruct us to honor and respect tradition. I'm sure this is the culture of your family. Otherwise, your father wouldn't be displeased. Besides, when you respect your stepmother, it is actually your father you respect. Getting along is possible when everyone in a polygamous family makes a personal commitment to family respect.
Hey people, I hope your day went as well as mine. I know you have your own take on this matter and you are itching to share it with this etiquette client. Kindly do so. Leave your contribution as a commen…

Creating the Beautiful You in the Face of Scorn

👉Imagine letting people put you down. These people are in your family, church, workplace, neighborhood and amongst your friends. Does the thought of that make you feel you are worthless? Or maybe, like me, it motivates you to stand tall above their wagging tongues and degrading lips? I know that belittlement, which sets in when you are not applying your image skill in the face of scorn. Ha! Well, I would like for you to start taking control.
👉When people talk badly of you, envious of you, bring you down or just dislike you for no good reason usually, what stands in their way is their lack of self-confidence, pride or poor manners from wherever they are coming from or struggle for their own identity. So, instead of focusing on feeling less like the ugly duckling, finding yourself through wrong or forceful means, what you really need to do is to put your time and energies into building your “image skills.” Otherwise, as this awful people constantly wrestle with the issue of image in …

Etiquette Tips. . .

Little etiquette for your new week! Ladies and gentleman why do you think you are a bother? Eliminating the phrases like “I hope I'm not bothering you,” “I'm sorry to bother you” in business and personal life will lift your stature in the eyes of others. It's much preferable to say “Excuse me. Do you have a moment? Than saying “I'm sorry to bother you.” Or you could say “Please I want to see you.” This state what you want, and as a result, you are more likely to get it without tarnishing your image. Passive phrases have a negative impact on your career or business image because you show you are weak.  Start using powerful communication approach in your conversation. Stop letting others make the choice, and you are probably not getting what you want. Be assumptive. Be direct. The directness that comes with your want communicates a much deeper level of confidence, that you want customers, colleagues, friends, etc to see in you. So start using direct assertive statements…
