Why “Coaching”?

Fundamentally, we here at Jackrabbit English want to help you develop a skill that should add to your ability to earn a living. How we do that makes us more like a sports coach or trainer than a classroom teacher.

You already have a lot of English vocabulary. You already have the fundamentals of English grammar. Those aren’t why you’re here.

You’re here to make your spoken English better so your audience understands you. And you’re here to do that efficiently, making the most of your time and money.

From our side of the screen, we are here to help you do that. When you record a video response, we give you written feedback which we revciew with you. Synchronous and asynchronous video conferencing, video messaging, and one-on-one coaching. Yay, technology!

In terms of coaching style, we are into a positive, competitive, a little in-your-face approach to helping you change how you speak. We shoot for a 3:1 ration of positive:critical comments. We believe that’s a successful mix to encourage and direct improvement.

The words you hear from your coach here should carry power and direction. They’ll challenge you, too. In the end, our success depends on your success, so we want you to be encouraged and stick with your training until you achieve your goals.
