Student Testimonials

Don Westwood is the best English instructor I have met.  His rich business background also makes him a top business coach.  I highly recommend Don to anyone who wants to improve their English skills as well as their professionalism in business.

Mr. Westwood,

I am writing to thank you for providing me with great English training.  The training is so enjoyable and helpful, thanks to your outstanding communication skills, tailored training plan, and extensive preparation before each of our classes.  Your experience in business makes the training more than just ESL.  Again, thanks for all your great efforts.

To Whom It May Concern:

Don and Tracy Westwood are top-notch English instructors. They have been giving private instruction to members of our family for the past eight months. They tailor each class to the student’s current level and needs. Thanks to Tracy, our two sons (ages 10 and 12) have improved their English very quickly. Working with Don, I have increased my vocabulary and business communication skills. (He is a business coach in addition to being an ESL instructor.) Don has also created a great learning path for my wife. This is the first time she is studying English. She is now engaged and starting to understand and communicate in English. Don uses his knowledge of Spanish and Italian to support my wife’s understanding. This is great from our point of view. A regular English teacher does not have this ability. I recommend Don and Tracy to my friends, and I will always do that.

Don and Tracy,

It is always exciting to attend your classes.  You are outspoken, honest, and always ready to answer questions honestly and in detail.  I have learned a lot from you about American culture, which will definitely help me for the long run.

Hello Don,

I have started taking on-line courses.  I have written a few essays, using your methods, and the teachers are amazed.  In past years, my essays were not good.  I didn't really know how to do it and I didn't like it.  But now I enjoy writing essays.  So I would like to thank you for teaching me all that stuff in your writing classes.  It really helped me.

Don – I really enjoy your teaching style, the way you encourage students to improve their skills.  Most students dislike giving presentations, but you create the right atmosphere and the group comes alive.  You have given me lots of new ideas to develop my skills.  Thank you.

Don:

Thank you again for your tutoring on creative writing. Your questions and suggestions about goals, plot, narrator’s voice, technique, point of view and dialog credibility provided fundamental support to review my novel… You gave spontaneous life to my characters with your natural acting in a way that might have taken hours of tedious lecture in a standard class. You did not tutor me. You coached me – much more beneficial training.

Don,

You are the best teacher I have ever had - by far!

To whom it may concern:

Once again it has been my pleasure to study English with Don Westwood, this time with four weeks of private lessons.  As part of this program, Don prepared me for the TOEFL exam.  My TOEFL score exceeded the requirements for admission to Harvard University in the USA and the University of Oxford in the UK.  As his students know, Don is an amazing teacher.  He understands what each student needs, and he knows how to bring out the best in each person.  I would recommend Don to anyone who wants to improve their English.

Don,

On Saturday, December 7, I took my CAE exam.  Last Friday I got the message that I passed the exam!  I wanted to say thank you once more.  It is your credit, too, and I’m so thankful for all the English lessons I had with you.  Please let me hear from you soon, and of course… MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Best Wishes!

Don and Tracy – my perfect teachers!  I had never met teachers like you in all of
my life, and I have learned the most valuable lessons from you.  I will miss you very much, and I will never forget our memories.  I hope I will see you again.

Don,

Learning English with you was pure fun.  You didn’t give me that “being at school” feeling.  I was learning and didn’t even notice it.

Michael Kosch – Commercial Pilot

Don,

I love the way you taught us – great knowledge and a “sophisticated” sense of humor.

Thomas Riesen – Business Executive

Don,

I admire you as a teacher mostly because of your ability to start conversation and encourage interactive learning.  I wish I could spend more time with you, although
I have already received a lot from you, not only in terms of knowledge, but also in terms of self-confidence.  For the first time I can honestly say I understand where success in life comes from.  Thank you.  Really.

Don and Tracy,

The way you teach is phenomenal and I was really surprised by it.  When I learned English from you, I did not just memorize.  I really understood the grammar and pronunciation of the words.  The classes felt alive and the smiles never left our faces.  When the classes ended I wanted more.  I wish every teacher would teach and treat students the way you do.

To Whom It May Concern:

I attended an intensive language course focused on business English led by Donald Westwood.  Throughout the course he proved to be a very well prepared instructor who is able to accommodate the different needs of students and adapt to the needs of various types of learners.  He has a wide range of business skills, in addition to crystal clear speech, which contributed greatly to my development.  I have no hesitation in recommending him.  If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

To Whom It May Concern:

Don Westwood is a great teacher!  He has excellent communication skills and love for the English Language.  He uses these to advantage by encouraging students to think about English in the real world.  He works tirelessly to inspire his students to perform at a very high level.  His dedication is reflected by his popularity among the students.

Don,

Private business English lessons with you have been a pleasure.  I have had a lot of new experiences with you, which give me new ideas for my future.

Don and Tracy,

I think you are two very happy people and dedicated teachers.  I enjoyed all of my classes with you.  It was always a lot of fun – but we still learned English.  It’s obvious that you’re interested in your students’ progress and well-being, and that you’re always prepared for every lesson.  I’m very grateful for all you’ve done for me.  Thank you very much!

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

As a student in Ft. Lauderdale, I had Don Westwood as a teacher.  Don was
always well prepared for class and he was always smiling.  He was by far the most interesting and entertaining teacher I had.  In addition, he really wanted his students to understand and succeed.  It was a privilege to have had him as my teacher for both general English and business.  Don is a true teacher and a true friend to his students.  Not only did he give me lessons to become better in English, he gave me lessons to become better in life.

Giuseppe Perri

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

As a former student of Donald Westwood, I can say that it was a pleasure to be taught by him.  In a didactically valuable way I learned to speak, write and understand English in his class.  Beyond training in grammar and writing, conversations about world politics and other actual themes make his teaching extremely interesting.  I enjoyed being his student and gladly remember my time
in his class.

Sven Bach
General English and Business English Communications Student
Germany


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Don Westwood is an excellent teacher – a professor who takes all the time his students need to learn whatever he is teaching.  He has the gift of teaching that not many people have.  He takes a particular interest in each student and their wants and needs.  It was a pleasure working with Don for a six-month period – through several levels of English.

Haydee de Bajares
General English Student
Venezuela


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

 

Don Westwood was my English teacher for one month.  Don was fascinating and his lessons were always very exciting.  With him dry grammar is fireworks. Don explains the heaviest grammar in simple words, so that everybody understands immediately.  If I could go back to school to learn more English, I would want Don as my teacher.

Don,

When I was studying with you I was fully captivated by your way of including the students in the class.  I was interested in learning because you made me want to learn.  The way you teach is wonderful because you take students beyond the book.  It was a pleasure being your student.
