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?
I have helped business professionals prepare for:
-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.
