Why The English Island Was Started

The English Island was started out of frustration. I have been a teacher, writer and editor for over 15 years. Throughout my career, I worked at a myriad of schools, universities, large companies and small companies. I realized that none of the schools or companies I worked for ever truly took care of people the way they should have or the way they claimed they would.

There was always a disconnect between the business side and the academic side of each place. The places I worked for spent more time worrying about making their next dollar instead of making sure that their students and clients were being taken care of.

After more than 10 years of putting up with the same complaints from students and clients about the lack of good teachers or lack of good writers/editors, I had had enough. I wanted to do things the right way, so I started The English Island in Atlanta, GA. I chose a location that was near Marietta, Smyrna, and Sandy Springs because of the desperate need for quality ESL instruction.

Quality Instructors, Writers/Editors, and Translators/Interpreters

I wanted The English Island to have the best team of ESL instructors while partnering with the best writing/editing, translating/interpreting companies, so we interviewed daily looking to find people that are not only well-educated and experienced but also have a passion for helping people.

After a few years of doing this, I understood why most places would lose sight of their clients’ needs. It is extremely time-consuming and expensive to constantly interview and search for high-caliber professionals. All of this hard work has paid off in the end, though. We are now known as the place that offers the best ESL instruction, while our sister company, The Language Island, offers the best exceptional writing, quality editing, and superior translation/interpretation services in the Greater Atlanta area.

Honesty and Integrity

We do exactly what we say we are going to do. There are no gimmicks, no sales fluff, and no unfulfilled claims. The English Island is only focused on giving the best English language instruction while recommending writing/editing, and translation/interpretation services outsourced from only the best companies available.

Our team of specialists will help you not just for a paycheck but because we truly have a passion for helping people. The most important thing to us is that you reach your goals or get closer to your dreams.
