    OurTribe Episode 31: The Driver of English Coaches, the Sephardic Advocate for Hasidic Values and Advancement: Bentzi Elkouby

    OurTribe Episode 31: The Driver of English Coaches, the Sephardic Advocate for Hasidic Values and Advancement: Bentzi Elkouby

    Why do Hasidic men typically lag in English skills, why do they want to learn them now, and how do you help them get there?

    How did you build yourself up in a small company and eventually buy it out? 

    I talk English.  Or, em, speak English.  How do I become an English coach in my spare time?  (Note: some knowledge of Yiddish a huge plus)

    Bentzi Elkouby, Partner and CEO at FluenTalkTM Remote English Tutoring.  FluenTalk, (which got its start working with the Hasidic community), helps non-native English speakers learn English with confidence via short, one-on-one coaching sessions, using a well-researched and effective methodology. 

    Bentzi grew up in Newcastle/Gateshead England, spent his formative years in a New Jersey Yeshiva, joined a fledgling business as a part-time employee in Israel and eventually bought out the founders to become the CEO.

    You can reach out to Bentzi on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/bentzi-elkouby-28483521b/ or visit the FluenTalk website at myfluentalk.com
