Instruction Philosophy

Learn by participating in conversations about everyday objects and basic conversation without knowing any of the target language.  Advanced students will receive customized instruction based on their needs and occupational field:  For example, any English client who needs special phrases for speaking or writing in their job will receive coaching to help make fast improvements and quickly eliminate their errors, which are usually mistakes that have become bad habits.

What Do the Students Say?

As an instructor, Jenny Juhnke has built up a list of satisfied clients/former students around the world...literally!
Please take time to browse the comments and see what others who have had instruction volunteered to say:

Satoru U, World Bank of Washington, DC:  "I strongly recommend her to other students, those who particularly have problems in oral communication.  In general, we Japanese students, maybe other Asian students, have learned English grammar per se repeatedly and mastered it by book before coming to the U.S. However, when it comes to real oral communication, many of them have problems in verbal communication. Jenny has a marvelous skill to pinpoint those problems and had me redress them with drills.  Before I met her, I had tutoring with more than 15 native teachers, but never met such a talented teacher as Jenny.  Without her tutoring, I would not be able to accomplish my goal."  (Japanese student who has continued his studies with Jenny off and on the past decade, with 90 minutes of lessons per week.)

Guy L, Ernst & Young of New York:  "Jenny was a great teacher of the English language and even more important of the U.S. culture.  As a foreign student, I gained tons of significant knowledge from her and found that learning can be real fun."  (Israeli student who studied with Jenny immediately after arriving in America, during a 3-week orientation course with four hours of class per day.)

Miki T, Japanese Insurance Company on Okinawa:  "Jenny is the best teacher that I have met.  I am now living in America and doing very well.  I have Jenny to thank for my success.  I learned a lot from her.  The greatest thing about her teaching style is she corrects pronunciation perfectly."  (Japanese student who took lessons on Okinawa for nine months with 50 minutes of class each week, before moving to America)
