Buffi Duberman is a native New Yorker who has spent more than half her life coaching non-native English speakers in the use of their English. Over the last 15 years, she has become a household name as the Personal English Coach (a business that she created) to the hottest artists, CEO’s and entrepreneurs.
As a well-rounded English coach, her work has taken her to a variety of places and people including TV shows such as Idols, Starmaker, So You Wanna Be a Pop Star, X Factor, Golden Oldies and De Beste Singer-Songwriter van Nederland. In 2009 Buffi decided to put her method on paper and published her first book, “Rock Your English!” Which is available in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Norway. The success of this book was followed up with buffi’s first online course, “Rock Your English! @ Home – www.rockyourenglish.com” – which featured 14 top artists discussing grammar and lyrics. Her second book, “30 Ways to Save Your Ass in English”, was completely financed through crowdfunding, which proves that her fresh approach has built its own online following.
In 2014 Buffi developed her second online course – an 8-week online course consisting of masterclasses and customized worksheets where she can reach a global audience who can log in and learn English in their own time – “www.businessenglishcommunication.com”. It is clear her passion for English and her determination to help people gain confidence will never cease.
She’s committed to innovation in education and coaching people one on one. This is why she founded the English department at the internationally recognized Rockacademie (Europe’s first official Bachelor Degree Program in Pop and Rock Music), is the English consultant to the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven and teaches over 500 students a week. Buffi does (corporate) workshops, personal English coaching sessions and master classes in the Netherlands and abroad. For the last couple of years she has also been an official TEDxAmsterdamWomen speakers coach. This woman loves teaching English!
