English Language Trainer and Interview Coach

I received my Ph.D. in English Education from the University of Arizona and have directed academic programs and taught professional communication at Columbia, Stanford, Harvard, the University of Arizona, and Case Western Reserve University.

After 15+ years in academia, I decided to start J. Gerard Consulting, a company that provides English language training, resume preparation, and interview coaching for professionals new to the United States. 




What My Clients Have to Say

Advancing your English language could be a very challenging task. Especially once done alone. For that reason, I was looking for the best language trainer who would help me to bridge between my desire to have an advanced level of English with the actions that would bring me there.

Jessica Gerard was the exact professional I was looking for! After attending two of her workshops, I decided to meet with Jessica for private lessons. What a fantastic attitude and structure she has for her classes! I was amazed by her ability to make each session relevant to my needs, but also operate in a fun and enjoyable way. Every week I was looking forward to those meetings with Jessica and that's what really helped me to make a progress. For sure, I am going to continue working with her in person or on-line from my next destination on the globe. Highly recommended!
