“Modern Manners for Today’s Teens” 4-Part Series

“Our daughter was really resistant to taking your class, but when we picked her up it was as if a fog had lifted. She was smiling and pleasant.  You miraculously instilled a bit of confidence in areas where she was sorely lacking.  We can’t wait to sign up for more classes.”

“As a mother of two boys, ages 9 and 10, I work hard to stress the importance of manners to my children. While searching for a program to refine these skills, I came across Lisa and Beverly Hills Manners. Telling my boys that they were headed to a “manners bootcamp,” was met with the resistance that any mother of young boys might imagine. However, they left their first session with big smiles, having had fun and met new friends! I was very impressed how much they retained after just one session! Lisa’s style of teaching is a modern take on old fashioned manners; proper but not stuffy. Her approach is youthful and evolved, yet still produces results that would gain the stamp of approval from grandparents. She has a lovely sense of humor, makes things fun and engaging, all the while teaching traditional etiquette. We have participated in her summertime “Manners Bootcamp,” Cotillion program, Virtual Dining Etiquette dinners, and individual instruction cultivating mature conversational skills for our children. Our experience with Lisa of Beverly Hills manners has been wonderful!

Social Intelligence Right from the Start

Lisa’s programs provide teens with the social intelligence to feel comfortable and confident in every situation. By acquiring and practicing these indispensable life tools, students learn to tune in — experiencing improved awareness of themselves and their surroundings, strengthening relationships with family and peers, and increasing their self‑esteem both at home and at school.”

“The students I spoke with couldn’t stop talking about how much they enjoyed the evening and how much they enjoyed having a professional like you come to campus to share your knowledge. Phenomenal as always!”

“My daughter attended your ‘Standout Interviews’ class and really enjoyed it. She did a great job on her interviews in part, we believe, because of your class, and got accepted to Polytechnic, Marlborough, and Harvard-Westlake, where she will attend in the fall. Thank you again for your great class.”
