We teach a variety of classes and meet a wide variety of students. Many parents tell us that when they bring up the topic of “etiquette training” the most common response is, “no way.”
Then we have students who asked their parents to send them to n etiquette training school, go figure.
We like to mix the age groups to provide interaction rather that just class with their peers; they get that in their schools.
So what happens in a typical class? What is important to cover?
Our classes focus on a number of primary areas.
1.Self Presentation and Confidence Building
2.Proper Dining Skills & Manners
4.Social Skills & Sportsmanship
5. Overcoming Shyness
6. Improving Self Esteem
Each primary area of study is broken down into subsets of learning objectives.
Students get an opportunity to interact, which takes some prodding, but as they soon learn, they are not under a microscope, nor are they being lectured. We intersperse some levity with hard cold facts. Simply put, we emphasize appropriate behavior and skills in virtually any setting.
We enjoy their feedback at the end of the classes but also receive the personal satisfaction that comes when we hear back from a prior student saying that they actually got to use what they had learned.
