Believe in Your Dreams
Jacqueline Smith, Founder & CEO
I’d like to tell you a story about the importance of believing in your dreams. In 2015, my DREAM was to teach English as a Second Language. I resigned from a corporate position, completed my TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) certification and moved to Vancouver, Canada.
I will never forget my first student. His name is Petr. Petr had moved from the Czech Republic to Vancouver. He was here only a few months before we met. Petr was shy and nervous. At first, it was difficult for us to communicate, but Petr improved quickly.
After studying for 12 months, Petr mentioned his DREAM of becoming a Permanent Resident in Canada. He asked me to help him prepare for the CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency) Test. He studied very hard and three months later, he successfully passed. Today, we are lucky to have Petr as a Permanent Resident in Canada. Petr’s dream began before he left his home country. He was determined to learn English and he never gave up.
Often our dreams are fueled by the dreams and accomplishments of others. We can impact lives in more ways than we know. I was so inspired by Petr’s dream that my DREAM began to grow even bigger. In January of 2017, I founded Fluency Tutors and began recruiting teachers to deliver English lessons online to students throughout the world.
I hope you’re inspired by Petr’s dream and mine. Fluency Tutors can help you achieve your DREAM to communicate in English. It’s important to believe in yourself and never give up! I wish you continued success.
