Launched in 2016, ESL Works was born out of clear and present need for quality English training in the food industry. What started as one, on-location ESL class at Gramercy Tavern has grown into a tech-forward education company that designs and delivers English-for-work training for all sectors of the U.S. food industry. Employers at major restaurant groups, grocery stores, commissaries and distribution centers have been investing in English-for-work for their teams and share our vision that an English-for-work benefit can and should be commonplace. 

 
 

OUR TEAM

Rachael Nemeth is the Founder and CEO of ESL Works. A food industry veteran with 15 years experience managing people and operations, Rachael has worked with some of NYC’s most respected food businesses: Union Square Hospitality Group, Baked, and Hot Bread Kitchen. She began teaching English to food industry employees 8 years ago as a volunteer, and quickly recognized the value of ESL as an industry-specific training tool. The growth of ESL Works is propelled by her firm resolve to make English training a standard workplace benefit.

When she isn’t designing curriculum, speaking about English For Work, teaching, or growing ESL Works, Rachael can be found hiking, reading, or honing her wilderness survival skills. She graduated from the College of Charleston and earned her TESOL certificate at The New School where she is now pursuing her Masters in TESOL.
