Detailed Profile in English

About me

THE ART OF AMERICAN CONVERSATION

There has been a shift in International business: American English with a clear, neutral accent is the preferred language of global business.

*Accent Reduction Expert*

I am from sunny California and come from a long family line of professors and Ivy-League educated teachers.

My BIO is unique:

*I have professional training in Accent Reduction

*I specialize in Intermediate to Advanced speakers

*I am professionally trained to customize lessons according to your NATIVE language. This is the ONLY proven way to reduce your accent.

I can help show you where to place your tongue, teeth and lips to make the different sounds in American English.

Did you know that many sounds come from a vibration in the throat? Even the belly!

If you said these words on Speaker Phone, would you be understood?

live, life

reef, wreath

man, men

ladder, letter

bump, lump

their, where

ranch, rich

___________________________________________

I have helped business professionals prepare for:

-TV interviews

-podcasts

-radio shows

-international presentations in front of large audiences.

Do you need to speak clear English for presentations, on the phone / speaker phone or during video conferences?

I can help reduce your accent and teach real life expressions that native speakers use during these important professional events.

_____________________________________________

"Since studying with Kristine, I have had many compliments from branch office in New York...My colleagues in the US can finally understand me on speaker phone"

-Yang, ESL student in China

"I was worried about my presentation in Los Angeles, but Kristine helped prepare me and I was able to answer all audience questions with ease. I have had many English teachers in my lifetime, but none who have helped me so significantly as Kristine."

-Sebastian, ESL student in Russia

_____________________________________________

What is the most important key to accent reduction and professional speaking skills? HUMOR and a sense of freedom to make mistakes.

It is common for Intermediate to Advanced speakers to hit a wall in proficiency.

I have created Lesson Plans, BASED ON RESEARCH, that assist Intermediate to Advanced students in busting through proficiency barriers.

EACH LESSON INCLUDES

*FREE support material

*A customized Lesson Prep document

*Lesson Follow-Up which summarizes corrections

My students land top jobs with the support of our lessons and work for:

the United Nations, Amazon, Microsoft, Ivy-League Universities, Government Agencies, International Research Foundations and many other Global Companies.
