About MGW Consulting
MGW Consulting was founded by Marilyn Glazer-Weisner in 2004 as a response to what Ms. Glazer-Weisner saw as a pressing need for better cross cultural understanding. Says Ms. Glazer-Weisner "Having an active involvement in the development of opportunities for my learners while studying Spanish as their second language I have made certain commitments. Since anxiety and inhibition are the enemies of language acquisition, I commit to the goal of encouraging and modeling positive attitudes among my students and by reinforcing this outlook by allowing them to enjoy their active learning experience because this is the way I also like to learn."
By bringing her experience in the classrooms of academia to the boardrooms of corporate America, Ms. Glazer-Weisner seeks to empower non-English speaking workers, employees and corporate managers in the same way she has empowered non-English speaking students.
About Marilyn Glazer-Weisner"My classrooms are a landscape reflecting on humanity’s life cycle. My learners are composed of various generations including adolescents to mid life. My students are usually North Americans who have lived their lives entirely in the United States and speak English as a first language. On occasion I have a learner who spoke another language during their early childhood; German, Swedish, Russian, and Spanish. More commonly, though, these learners were exposed to second-language study during middle school, high school, or other college courses. All of my learners are here in this learning environment because they want that special community college experience. The high school students who have dual enrollments in both settings are looking for an academic challenge. The traditional age students are looking for a place where they can receive the necessary support to establish themselves as students in good standing. The untraditional age students are preparing for either a career or a life change. Five years ago, I was one of them, formerly a housewife, a full-time mother, and a community activist. I returned to school as a community college student wanting to rebuild my life, as I became a soon-to-be-divorced single mother of three adolescents lacking the necessary skills or education to be a productive and responsible head of household. Today, I am there again, in these same classrooms and my purpose is clear; to give to my learners what was given to me, an opportunity to learn."
