What our clients say

Gordon’s help was instrumental to my success in receiving offers of admission to two schools this year. Gordon’s effective method of training gave me a comfortable atmosphere to learn where my communication skills could be worked on and techniques to keep my answers to questions focused. His method for answering questions is something that I used in each of my interviews, and it really helped me to feel confident going into each interview. I would recommend Gordon to anyone looking to better their communication skills. Whether it be small fixes or an entire overhaul of how you answer questions, Gordon will work with you to makes sure your message gets across to the interviewers in the clearest way possible, and ultimately making you the best interviewee you can be.
