THE ART OF AMERICAN CONVERSATION
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.
My BIO is unique:
*I have professional training in Accent Reduction
*I specialize in Intermediate to Advanced speakers
*MASTER TEFL TESOL Certification | 20+ years experience
*I have been selected to be a presenter at multiple International TESOL (Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages) conferences.
*I am professionally trained to customize lessons according to your NATIVE language, this is the KEY to success.
I can show you where to place your tongue, teeth and lips to make the different sounds in American English.
Do you know that many sounds come from a vibration in the throat? We even have nasal sounds!
If you said these words on Speaker Phone, would you be understood?
"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."
