Students learn the skills that will help them attain their professional goals and insure success in the workplace. The course centers on marketing one’s self in a positive manner. By developing professional polish, communication and interpersonal skills, as well as image and deportment, these goals are achieved. I have tutored many professionals on their way to the top and you, too, can implement some of the skills they have used to reach their professional goals.

    Dining Etiquette

    Students learn proper table manners for formal and informal occasions. A formal table setting is used for demonstration and instruction. Correct usage of dishes and silverware is taught along with table, chair and napkin etiquette. Handouts are provided which detail the rules of dining etiquette and illustrate both formal and informal table settings. In addition, handouts are also provided for restaurant etiquette.

    Social Etiquette

Through knowledge gained in this course, students are able to conduct personal and professional interactions with confidence, grace and style. This course can be tailored to the needs and desires of the student but generally includes the proper etiquette required at social events such as dances, parties, receptions and the theater. This includes the proper way to sit, stand and walk; the proper way to converse socially, shake hands and move through a receiving line.


    Never lose a business or social opportunity simply based on a bad first impression. This special course will help change unconscious habits and build presence through walk, voice, gestures and rhythm. Students learn to develop poise, polish their image and improve body movements.
