Meet our CEO
Jacqueline Smith, Founder & CEO of Fluency Tutors
I’d like to tell you a story about the importance of DREAMS. In 2015, my DREAM was to teach English as a Second Language. I resigned from a corporate position, completed the ESL teaching certification and moved to Vancouver.
I will never forget my first student. Petr moved to Canada from the Czech Republic. He had been in Canada only a few months before we met. Petr was shy and nervous. At first, it was difficult for us to communicate, but he improved quickly.
After two years of lessons, Petr told me about his DREAM to become a Permanent Resident in Canada. He asked me to help him prepare for the Canadian English Language Proficiency Test (CELPIP). He studied hard and three months later, he passed the test. Today, Petr is 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 started Fluency Tutors and began recruiting teachers to deliver online English lessons to students throughout the world.
I hope you’ve been inspired by Petr’s dream and mine. We can help you achieve your DREAM of speaking English. Believe in yourself and never give up!
