My passion for teaching began by helping people in 1981. All of the people I helped often told me how they appreciated every thing I did for them, so now my mission is to help those to speak English to better themselves, to go where the people want to learn through education.

Be Honest

Be Honest is the compelling true experience of Abdel Metwally, an Egyptian immigrant who traveled solo to the United States in 1969 in search of a new life and to fulfill his dream of working for an American business. Abdel arrived in New York City without friends, relatives, help, or money, but he did possess and intend to live by three principles that would carry him through the challenges ahead: to be honest, to work hard, and to make a clean living. With six years of experience working as a cost accounting manager in a $20 million trade company, Abdel enthusiastically set out to find a job, only to soon encounter several roadblocks. He shares the chronological account of his working life over the last thirty-eight years by depicting his personal experiences and then reflecting on the lessons he learned. He also includes his theories on honesty and ideas for change in America's business management that will certainly encourage thoughtful conversation in a group setting. Abdel not only candidly communicates his opinions of the American business world but also focuses on sharing one important lesson - to be honest is the only way to succeed.
