Our Mission: Beyond English is a social business that uses English as a vehicle for social change, empowering global citizens and providing equal access to educational opportunities. We strive to provide top-quality, meaningful experiences for both our students and teachers, in an effort to develop empowered individuals equipped with the communication skills and the confidence to become active participants in the global community. We are passionate about teaching English in the context of intercultural exchange and dedicated to bringing what has become the world's second language back to its roots — We believe that languages exist to connect people — to forge stronger communities. That's why our sustainable model goes beyond the classroom, intertwining the for-profit and non-profit sectors to democratize access to high-quality English language instruction.
Our Model: We teach one-on-one and small group English classes to private and corporate clients. We've created our own materials to teach personalized and engaging courses, using various resources to spark discussions and teach more than just English. These classes fund our non-profit side, which consists of two branches. In B.E.S.T. (Beyond English School Talleres), we teach fun, captivating English classes steeped in our leadership methodology to children in underrepresented public schools. Our second branch combines the two teaching networks through community projects. Each teacher designs, develops and leads a project based on their passions and interests combined with the needs of the communities we work with. We utilize our network of private and corporate clients to make the projects possible, and implement them in the same communities that we work with in B.E.S.T.
