Andrew joined us in 2004
‘My life has been an adventure and the last 6 years with Wall Street English is no exception. It’s been one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs of my life. I joined Wall Street English having very little idea how to be a manager. I’d never led a meeting in my life, never hired or fired someone and still thought that SWOT was something you did to a whining kid.’
He developed professionally & worked abroad
‘I self-studied, and I experimented and I was mentored, and I worked my butt off. I worked so hard I nearly cracked. I would go home and stare at my turtles to soothe my mind. But I knew I was in a special job. I had a job in education and I had a position which I knew would change lives. I was changing my students’ lives and my staff’s lives and that was a powerful motivator. I had an incredible team of Personal Tutors and Service Officers and I loved them fiercely.’
Then he became the General Manager of Wall Street English’s venture in Vietnam
‘Together, along with the other Wall Street English staff, we created a special place where our students came, and learned, and became fluent and grew confident, both in English and in other aspects of their life. I’m a company man now – sworn in for life. Wall Street English has infected my life so much that even my wife can draw the acquisition cycle (though she has disallowed a Wall Street English tattoo). I went from being a scruffy teacher making minimum wage at a local language school in Jakarta to being the GM of a multi-million dollar operation in Vietnam – if that’s not an improvement on things, I don’t know what is.’

Director, Product Management – Retail
“The key motivator for me over these 19 years in Wall Street English has been the shared passion for helping our students learn: helping them achieve their goals through new and improved learning and teaching materials, offering educational success and personal satisfaction: elements that are at the heart of what we do, that we all understand and believe in, and produce outstanding results and success stories day after day throughout the network.”
National Service Manager, Colombia
“I majored in psychology and never thought I would end up in the English teaching industry. It is amazing to see how English opens doors and working at Wall Street English has been an incredible learning experience for me. I have learned how to teach, how to lead, and how to manage. I have also met some of the most inspiring people that are now part of my life. I have travelled to many different countries thanks to Wall Street English and have reached many personal goals during this time, including taking the CELTA course and helping students achieve their potential.”
