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.

I have a clear, neutral accent that is highly desirable in the business world.

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 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 on 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.

It takes a skilled teacher to help students break through these proficiency barriers.

I have done significant research over my 20+ years as an English teacher.....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.

Let's have FUN, LAUGH and get started!
