Who ARE we?
English for Fun is the passion project of Jill Stribling, our Owner and Founder.
Jill’s life calling is supporting families to build strong adults. She has over 24 years experience in education and in very diverse settings. Jill has worked in education in both the public and private sectors. Her career began in Los Angeles, CA in an urban area where 98% of the children were new to America and training grants were given to support teachers to develop English as a second language units in order to improve student testing results in the struggling urban public school. Aside from an excellent support system and mentorship to start out as a teacher, the skills learned in those 3 years while employed in the largest school district in the U.S., LAUSD, were the foundation for her work developing the methodology at English for Fun.
She began her entrepreneurial journey in 2008, at the start of a worldwide recession and she has not looked back since! Continuous Development is at the core of our values and that learning keeps English for Fun innovating ahead of the market. Jill has drawn on her broad background in education to design the teaching method used at the center.
Our proprietary method allows children to acquire important life skills in English, effortlessly. How? By participating in recreational activities, and exploring high-interest topics in hands-on workshops which are designed specifically for their age group and language level.
Our teachers are highly qualified and we offer uncommonly small class sizes in safe facilities that are equipped with the latest technologies with our children’s best interest always in mind.
We also offer adult classes: improv classes in English and English intensives for both companies and high level executives.
Are you lucky enough to do that THING that you love so much that you would do it for FREE?
A job that is nothing more than a paycheck is BORING and unfulfilling and it leads to a FIXED Mindset.
Do you really want that life for your child?
Lets do more for our kids, by preparing them for anything that will happen in the 21st century!
Quality education is the MOST important gift for our children and it feels great when we are able to give them opportunities that we didn’t have.
Starting out life with proper Executive Function Skills already built into the brain, through the best practices in education, means that a child will grow up confident and self-assured. We want our children to have no FEAR!
Imagine if you were taught properly in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, Music (S.T.E.A.M.M.)…
How would your life be different today? We all have adult FEARs that are rooted in early childhood, so lets raise the next generation right!
Do you know how to love your job and make a difference in the world? It is easy when you are passionate about what you do!
FEAR is at tricky thing and it is literally ruining the world right now but FEAR elimination has always been our thing! We have seen, first hand, what FEARful people are capable of and we believe that if we don’t teach children to stand up to FEAR, the world will continue to spiral out of control.
But the funny thing about FEAR is that it is easy to eliminate as long as the FEARless take grow in numbers.
How? Through self-efficacy and that happens through teaching people how to think! QUALITY EDUCATION is the answer to transition the world from FEAR into FARCE (definition-big fakers)!
