This included attending conferences, participating in exhibitions, negotiating with suppliers and increasing our market share, both locally and abroad. I reported to the Board and took part in a number of Board meetings. Before that I reorganised and ran a computer company which was part of the Group of Companies.
As a Marketing Manager I targeted local companies that were working on a manual accounting system. I offered our clients advisory services on the type of customised software package they should introduce. I also trained their staff and prepared the system users’ manual. As a Credit and Liability officer with Toronto Dominion International Bank Toronto, Canada, I was responsible for the running of the Credit Administration department of the International Centre. This included credit reviews, bad risk loans, rollovers, Certificates of Deposits, interest rate swaps and cross-currency swaps. I managed rollovers when the bank was the managing bank.

One of the best teachers I met in my life!
I got to know Lorraine during my 3-week English course on Malta. From the first lesson, I realized that she is one of the best teachers I met in my life. The mixture of excellent knowledge, solid experience, efficient training methods, the right approach, and the full commitment drove toward the best possible result. I continued learning English with Lorraine via Skype. She helped me to improve my language significantly -from intermediate to almost fluent - just in eight months. Keeping in mind that I had been studying English for ages, the changes, I reached so quickly, were marvellous for me.
Many thanks to the extremely professional teacher and a truly nice person, Lorraine.
I enjoyed Lorraine’s classes very much, because...
I like Lorraine’s teaching method. Her classes are always well-organized, structured, with various interesting materials. Never boring, always a “language adventure”. Lorraine provides constructive and detailed feedback. Lorraine has an individual approach to every student, she inspires and motivates you. It is always great to talk to her. She not only taught me language but also shared with me her knowledge of business culture. That helped me a lot in communication with my foreign colleagues and clients. They are efficient. Now I’m able to successfully communicate in respect of complex legal, financial and business matters. I passed the IELTS and BEC Higher exams with very good scores. As a result, I was admitted to one of the best universities in Europe and am now obtaining a master’s degree in International Tax Law.
I’m very grateful to Lorraine and definitely recommend her as an amazing Business English teacher.
Lorraine is an excellent Business English Teacher
She is very professional and is always interested in the specialisations of her clients. She creates a very motivating atmosphere of learning and helps whenever there is the need of asking ad-hoc questions outside the lesson. Her expertise and know how is very vast and diverse. She offers a wide range of topics, from a high business English level as a basis to a highly elaborated coaching level.
Enabled me to communicate effectively
After twenty years of Sea-going practice I was keen to develop my career ashore, however, my English was very technical. In order to improve it, I started taking regular Business English lessons with Lorraine. That enabled me to perform presentations correctly and communicate effectively. I worked my way up and became a Project Manager on the Stock Control project. I visited company vessels and trained the crew member on the use of company management software.
My English lessons with Lorraine have been excellent. I have been taking the lessons for almost six months, and I am really happy about my improvement. Now I feel more comfortable and secure when speaking English and more fluent, too. These advances help me both in my work and beyond the workplace. One great thing about working with Lorraine is that I can fix my goals with her, so she prepares the lessons according to that. It has been a completely customised program.
I thank Lorraine for all her patience and extraordinary enjoyment of teaching English. I fully recommend her.
I'm very happy!
I went to Malta to improve my English because I needed to speak better English for my job. I didn’t have a lot of time - only 2 by 2 weeks. After these 4 weeks, I wasn’t happy with my result. I asked the best teacher Lorraine Pirotta whether she would give me private lessons on Skype as a next step. I started private lessons with her on Skype and now after 3 years I’m very happy! The quality in the lessons is very high and learning is interesting. Lorraine’s background in business is enormous. She has a very efficient structure in her lessons and her training methods are successful. Now I’m very happy with my study progress!
A highly professional trainer
When I started my Executive MBA course at Kingston Business School, London, UK I realized that my level of English was not good enough for having my classes. Thanks to Lorraine I improved my language very fast and successfully acquired my degree. Lorraine is a highly professional Business English Trainer who has exceptional knowledge and experience in preparing Top-Executives for the progress in the international context. While her business background which is accompanied by the commitment make her training methods unique and extremely efficient.
Individual approach to each of her students...
I am always inspired by people who are completely devoted to their job, who do it not even for 100, but for 1000 percent. The main stimulus for them is the love to their affairs, which they are engaged in, and the desire to share this passion with others. Lorraine Pirotta is exactly that person. She manages to find an individual approach to each of her students, identify their weak and strong sides and give them exactly what they need. Besides being demanding and scrupulous, Lorraine shows at the same time patience and understanding. At least it was so with me.
The person with a wealth of experience in teaching Business English, she does not stop at the achievements and continues to learn new methods, order new textbooks. In my case, Lorraine specifically looked for books that would provide the necessary communication skills and vocabulary, important for diplomatic activity. In addition, it is really extremely easy and enjoyable to communicate with Lorraine. Always open and sincere, she has become a good friend to me and my family and advisor, whom I trust. That is why, having accidentally found myself in her class of Business English in Malta in August 2015, I have remained with Lorraine ever since.
I started English lessons with Lorraine as a beginner when I met her in 2012. However, I needed English in an efficient and fluent manner to develop my career in the life science industry and what shall I say? With her professional and user-friendly technique as well as patient character, she could convey the comprehension of this language. Additionally, Lorraine has the appropriate versatility to be familiar with very special topics such as natural science and medicinal issues.
Today, I can say: I have improved my English in such a way that I am no longer afraid of speaking English and am able to draw up evaluations in the medical field and communicate effectively. I am very thankful to Lorraine and look forward to additional wonderful and instructive lessons. Thank you very much!
Prepared for new challenges
Due to a strategy change in my company I had to speak English with immediate effect. I was unsure to speak English on a high business level in an appropriate way. Lorraine not only taught me in Business English. She also prepared me for the new challenging business situation and supported me as a coach and mentor. Thanks to her, I got my new job as a Managing Director.
Always available for assistance
Since I became a member of a European Tax Task Force I had to speak and write English with immediate effect. Furthermore, I need business English during meetings and calls with clients. Lorraine prepared me well for these business situations. Thanks to her assistance and professional advice I could manage them all. She is always patient and also available for assistance outside the lessons. It is a great pleasure to have English lessons with her.
She is a true mentor
I started my language course with Lorraine in 2013 and since then I have not only found an English teacher but a true mentor who not only helped me to improve my English considerably above all to gain self confidence in speaking it . Today I hold a Global HR role in coordinating various countries in the world.
Strict but fair
I have followed private lessons with Lorraine for a few years. When I started with the lessons, my level was much lower than it is now. Thanks to her help, determination (strict but fair) and motivation, I passed my BEC Vantage with good grades. The lessons and homework were not only good for my level but also for my self-confidence. Since I have a new job, I use the English language everyday and I feel comfortable to use it. Lorraine taught me that it’s fine to make a mistake and that you learn every day. Lorraine is a nice person, a good teacher and if you are really willing to improve your English level, you have to take lessons with her!
Lorraine is the best English teacher I have ever met! If you have a busy schedule, Skype lessons is a very convenient way for learning English. Lorraine is always well-prepared and well organized; all materials are chosen according to the individual needs of students. Lorraine gives me Business English vocabulary and a deep understanding of grammar necessary for communication in business. Thanks to our lessons I have stopped translating from Russian to English in my mind and have started to think in English.
I love English lessons with Lorraine also because it is a time for chatting with the most intelligent, professional, versatile and wise person! Only one thing you should be worried about - to have a good WiFi signal!
