"I was very hesitant to take English lessons, but with Steve I am sure I made the right decision. Thank you Steve because now I am comfortable having conversations and even doing business in English. Today Steve is more than just an English teacher. Thanks, Steve!"

Sandro Gori

President of Toscana Casa S.r.l., Florence, Italy

I was frustrated to speak English at work; my English was too basic and monotonous. So one day I typed “Business English conversation” on youtube and I came across Steve, with his Business English lesson, with his enthusiasm, with his new and fresh way to teach English. I understood immediately that Steve could be the solution to my problem and working out things with him, I could improve my English, improve my vocabulary, phrasal verbs and idioms. But best of all I have found a new English friend to talk about “REAL LIFE!” To speak and write as a native English speaker does, and has always been one of my dreams and now, I am sure that with Steve, that dream can come true. Thanks Steve, you are really great!!!”

“I am from Turkey. I had studied English before Steve’s private English classes but I hadn’t improved enough. These days I have enough self-confidence about my English. If you don’t have the opportunity to go to Canada for English education, Steve can bring Canada to you. I highly recommend Steve’s online classes to everyone.”

"When CSR Technology Inc. employees from India, Russia, Israel, Korea, China and Eastern Europe sought assistance in improving English pronunciation, the company engaged with Steve Ford based on the strength of his educational Youtube videos, his flexibility around delivery and scheduling, competitive rates and his Private English Portal (PEP) website. Steve is always upbeat and was undaunted by the mix of language backgrounds and various levels of proficiency he had to contend with in working with CSR employees and, after assessing each of our employees, he created small learning groups so everyone could get as much benefit as possible from working with him. Our employees greatly appreciated Steve’s support and the applicability of what they worked on together. With his upbeat, good-natured personality, he set a comfortable tone which helped employees relax and learn more easily and without embarrassment. CSR employees took lessons with Steve over Skype for about one year. Unfortunately, when CSR Technology Inc. was acquired by a larger company that had existing language/pronunciation learning resources, we had to run out our contract with Steve. However, if Steve’s student employees had their way, they would still be working with him. Given the engineering no-time-to-waste culture of our business, that is saying a lot! Thank you, Steve, for your pronunciation guidance and for showing genuine caring for CSR employees."
