Sample Action Plan and Fee for a Business

Context: A wine importer has 12 employees who need to write emails, press releases, and vintage reports in English, but their native language is French.
Goals: Make workers aware of the limits of automatic translation services; improve English grammar skills; come up with re-usable templates for frequent communications
Action plan: The manager sends two writing samples from each of the 12 employees for my review. I come on site and have one-on-one, 30-min. meetings with each struggling writer for a total of three hours.I organize three groups of four students with similar skills and deficits. For each group, I make and teach a focused six-week curriculum that includes a one-hour class each week and workbooks that include job-related exercises. I am available on-call to answer questions over these six weeks.I create a test to measure the students’ progress with English grammar and their fluency with the templates we have established. After the manager approves the test, I administer it during week 7. Then, the manager and I meet to discuss results and next steps, as appropriate.
Fee: This package for 24 students costs $5,640.
