Asha proves that etiquette extends beyond the dinner table. She has advised me from job interviews to social events, to navigating tough situations in the workplace – all with poise and tact. I highly recommend her to anyone who would like to develop professional and overall life skills.

We recently enrolled our twins in one of the private “Etiquette for Teens” courses and were blown away by the team at The Modern School of Manners. Not only did the girls learn invaluable dining and social skills, but the team was also fun, patient, and nurturing. We are so grateful to have worked with them. They tailored the class perfectly to teach them exactly what they needed to brush up on. We can’t wait to share this experience with our friends and family.

I took a private course with Asha and wow! I learned so much from her dining etiquette course. She’s so captivating and intelligent that I could have listened to her for hours. I was nervous because I thought I’d be bored, but I was far from that. This was one of the most exciting and informational classes I’ve ever taken. Thank you, Asha!
