Long coveted by Washingtonian families, our lessons have taught families in preparation of diplomatic travel and consular postings along with international visitors to the United States. Private and personalized in-home etiquette lessons prepare your children for all occasions. Our etiquette experts will visit your home and cover topics to include first impressions, poise & posture, interacting with adults, sending thank-you cards, being a gracious host and guest, table setting and formal dining etiquette. Additional international protocol topics can be tailored into our lessons.
In-home lessons are available for small groups of children ages 5 & up as well as teens. Parents are welcome to join the lesson as well. Many families choose to cover the lesson over a dinner where both children’s and adult dining etiquette topics may be covered. The choice is yours!
