English Pronunciation For Success

English Pronunciation For Success is the perfect pronunciation program for you if you are in:

Are you an advanced level English speaker who is looking for coaching in pronunciation skills to help North American English speakers understand you the first time you speak?

Do North American clients, co-workers or friends have trouble understanding you because of how your pronounce your words?

Are you being passed over for promotions and opportunities to represent your company because your accent is difficult for clients to understand?

Do you need to prove your speaking fluency to pass a major exam?

Are you preparing for a professional speaking engagement?

Do you feel lonely because you are left out of conversations?

 

English Pronunciation For Success may be the right fit for you.

Each course is built around the needs of busy, adult professionals who know that clearconfident North American English pronunciation is the next step in their path toward success in their career, life and relationships.

My pronunciation coaching clients sign up for intensiveaffordablefocused classes that are completed in one month.

You save time and money because the course works on the English you need to know for your specific field.

 

One on One Sessions:

The majority of my clients find that the one on one courses fit their schedule best.

My courses run at various times of the day and night depending on the availability of my clients.  Please contact me with scheduling requests if the course or time you want isn’t listed.

Small Group Mastermind Sessions:

I occasionally offer group courses.  The group course is offered at a substantial discount.

You will be part of a small group of six.

You benefit from the interaction with other professionals in your field and from the chance to hear an international range of English.  The skills you develop give you the advantage in phone interviews, in multinational conferences and in the North American workplace.

If you would like to propose a group, please contact me with your scheduling request.

Local and International Clients:

I work with each client live over an online platform which gives me the opportunity to focus on your specific pronunciation difficulties.  I can see you and you can see me.  This allows for instant correction and praise which leads to amazing improvement in a short amount of time.

As you have found, English pronunciation is not one that can be “picked up” through listening alone.  The differences in soundsstressintonationemphasis, etc. must be taught, compared to your first language, and then practiced in context.

Once you have these skills, however, the world opens up to you.  The resources available in English have never been as easily accessible.

 

I believe that English is a world currency, like gold.

At English Pronunciation For Success

I help you put English In Your Pocket™.

To your success!

Rexall in Canada was established in 1904 in the early days of the United Drug Company and quickly established itself as an innovator in retail pharmacy. At the same time, Tamblyn Drugs was establishing itself in Toronto, Ontario, and would eventually become Pharma Plus.

A lot may have changed over the years, but our commitment to helping Canadian families and communities be healthier has never been stronger; it continues to guide us as we look to the future and increase access to convenient, quality healthcare and products that Canadians can feel good about.

Scandinavian Building Services Ltd.

 

Are you passionate about cleaning? Are you interested in being your own boss? At Scandinavian Building Services you can join our team as an employee or an Owner Operator. If you possess either of these qualities, you would be a great fit for our company.

About Us

Scandinavian Building Services is proud to be a second-generation family owned and operated cleaning business. We have been providing quality and customer service excellence for more than 60 years.

Since the company’s inception in 1956, we have steadily grown our services and customer base to become Canada’s leading janitorial and facility maintenance company. We operate in almost every province and have regional offices in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. Together, we have over 5,000 skilled team members throughout the country that belong to our Scandi family.

There are six different industries our cleaning services specialize in; retail, public sector, commercial, construction cleanup, sports and entertainment, as well as special services. We clean many well-known facilities and retail chains locally including Rogers Arena, IKEA, Cabela’s and Home Depot. We keep over 50 million square feet of property spotless every day!

Working for Scandinavian

To clean that much space, we need a dedicated and cohesive team of employees who work together to deliver quality and professional customer service in a fast-paced environment. We are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who have good communication skills, a positive work ethic, and experience in the commercial cleaning field or a similar area.

Scandinavian’s work is constantly reviewed by our customers, so that means it must always meet our standard of excellence. Our employees must pay careful attention to detail to ensure each cleaning requirement for a facility is met. They must also be able to do physical tasks such as lifting garbage bags, operating large cleaning equipment, and bending and reaching over the duration of an eight-hour shift.

Our cleaners and Owner Operators are an essential part of our company, so we provide you with many tools, resources, and training courses you need to excel in your position. Every employee hired by Scandinavian must complete several training programs, which outline how to properly complete tasks in the safest manner. You will receive both online training and on-site training where you will learn about site-specific cleaning requirements and how to operate the required cleaning equipment.

As a cleaner or Owner Operator, you will report directly to your Account Manager. They are there to provide support if needed. If you have any questions or concerns, they should be addressed to them. As a team, it is up to you and your Account Manager to deliver the best possible quality and service.

Available Positions

Scandinavian is currently looking to hire several cleaning specialists and Owner Operators. Our cleaning positions offer flexible hours and can be a stepping stone for advancement within our company. Day or night shifts are available.

As an Owner Operator, you must have your own small business and be able to employ staff who can help you meet the cleaning needs of a contract that has been given to you. Owner Operators aren’t Scandinavian employees, but partner with us to provide cleaning services. In this role you would have complete exposure to our technology, training, and safety programs.

We are also currently looking for a person to fill our Mechanic and Shipper/Receiver position at our Delta offices. This position allows you to use your mechanical abilities to repair and maintain the janitorial equipment and machinery. As well, this role includes overseeing the deliver and pickup of supplies and equipment and maintain the organization and cleanliness of the warehouse.

About ALS Canada

Founded in 1977, the ALS Society of Canada (ALS Canada) and our provincial partners are dedicated to supporting Canadians living with ALS and investing in research to make ALS a treatable, not terminal, disease.

Within Ontario, ALS Canada has a role similar to that of the provincial ALS societies providing services and support to help meet the needs of people living with ALS.

ALS Canada advocates federally, provincially and locally for better government support and access within the healthcare system for people touched by ALS.

About us:

In 1952, 12 parents of children with developmental disabilities came together to work towards integrating their children into public schools. By the 1990’s, that parent group, called the Vancouver-Richmond Association for Mentally Handicapped People, had become Canada’s largest charitable society of its kind west of Toronto.

In 1998, recognizing changes in society, the wishes of its members, and its expanded role in the community, the Association changed its name; it is now the Developmental Disabilities Association.

Developmental Disabilities Association (DDA) is a leading employer in BC’s social services sector. With over 50 community-based programs and services for children, youths, and adults in Vancouver and Richmond, we offer superior programs and services to enable people with developmental disabilities to reach their full potential.
