Manners Talk ™
Etiquette Coaching  for Children & Teenagers 

As an Etiquette "Mobile" Coach I travel to facilities, schools and homes to teach both group and private tutorial classes that are both fun and engaging in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia region. 

The sessions involve role-playing activities that recreate real life situations to assist teens in learn to overcome their discomfort in new and unfamiliar situations. 

High pressure situations like college and job interviews are role-played to help teens lessen their fears and to  practice the necessary skills they will need. Good communication and introductory skills are also taught. 

Additionally, they will learn the value of respecting and caring about others. The greatest focus is placed on building greater resilience, self-respect & confidence, along with the importance of valuing others. 

I believe strongly in the need to help our young people develop stronger character, integrity, and overall behavior that reflects respect and concern for others and their environment in both their speech and behavior.

As parents, I am sure you would love your teens to be able to put their best foot forward when they venture out into the world and not be perceived or judged in a negative light.

As teachers, it gives us great pride and pleasure to see your students show more consideration and respect towards their peers and elders. And we all know that teens with good manners are much easier to teach and to have in the classroom.
