Gaëtan Tiger, Director, HUG, Geneva

"I completed over a dozen classes with Agnes Janich to refresh my English skills. I want to strongly recommend her. She is dynamic, curious, proactive and very professional. After the first meeting, which was an assessment of my needs, we quickly went on to discuss case studies (based on videos and articles) in my domain, hospital infrastructure projects. We also undertook a visit to the newly completed hospital building to relate the vocabulary I learned to its actual use. Agnes helped me discover numerous websites to support my English learning: ted.com, thesaurus.com, dictionary.com. A big thank you!!"

Djemila, Researcher, Université de Genève

"I worked with Agnes on my presentation for a scientific conference on International Humanitarian Law. Agnes corrected the presentation text, paying great attention to detail. We also worked on presentation skills and speech articulation. She adapted the classes to my needs and based them on, besides her own resources, the exact articles, PhD thesis and supplementary materials that I needed to discuss. She was very thorough and did her best to help my succeed. Indeed, the presentation and the ensuing discussion both went very well. I am fully satisfied with the academic English classes I took with Agnes."

You no longer translate, you get to think in English!

 

A.U., banker, Geneva

"She is very effective in her teaching. Not many teachers are able to stimulate you to the extent she does. As a teacher, she has great communication skills and her explanations are short and helpful. She is great in that because she does not just give the answers away, she makes you think. It helped me understand how to learn more effectively."

Melanie K., Legal Assistant in Training, Geneva

"My meeting with Agnes was rich in information about her method of teaching, the courses’ strategy and the plan for preparing me for the TOLES legal English exam. Agnes is a person both likeable and generous in her explanations. Her method seems generous, complete and rigorous in assuring the student’s success at his/her exam. I fully recommend her!"
