Learn American English

with The Diamond Method

and speak clearly and confidently

My passionate love affair with communication 


started when I was in grade school studying acting and singing. I was obsessed with my role as Lola in the summer camp performance of Damn Yankees and later went on to win singing competitions in high school. My parents even supported my decision to take a hiatus from college to move to Los Angeles where I studied day and night to be a film actress.

I eventually turned my PASSION for the arts into a 

Profession.

 

 

I started teaching English through Carolyn Graham’s Jazz Chants and soon learned that music was the key to coaching international professionals how to speak English well. 

 

And so The Diamond Method was born.

 

Today, I proudly offer a blend of online and in-person training that stays FLEXIBLE to each professional’s lifestyle. I have touched thousands of people over the years and the referrals keep on coming. I am a demanding trainer who LOVES energizing others!

AND IT CHANGES THE COURSE OF PROFESSIONALS’ CAREERS. … IT CHANGES THEIR ENGLISH-SPEAKING LIVES. …AND IT GIVES ME GREAT SATISFACTION.

Amazing Human Stories

“After one of our employees had his first three-hour class, he could not stop talking about it. He has a speech at a conference this afternoon and is applying the skills he learned. After having heard such positive feedback from the people who have worked with you, Jill, I thought I’d book a class for myself next time I’m in the New York office!”



Camilla

Former President, Computer Software Company

“We hired Jill to do a workshop for our graduate students who needed assistance with their English skills. The students were so enthusiastic from the work they did with Jill and she was so kind and reassuring that she made everyone feel comfortable to participate. I would highly recommend Jill if you are looking for someone who is an expert at helping others speak English better.


Brian

Assistant Dean of Graduate Programs and Director of Graduate Management Programs at a Technology Institute

Jill’s work is taken beyond words and structure and into expression. She says the work she does is very personal, and I can attest to that.”
