Interview coaching

Kristine is a wonderful interview coach! English is my second language and she helped me out to build my confidence bringing strong answers. She also helped me out to organize my answers, and to study my audience. I recommend her 100%!

Daniela, 4 lessons with Kristine

Excellent, patient, and well-informed tutor!

Kristine is very encouraging and helped me through the entire process step by step! She gives additional resources and feedback to me. I see an impactful change in a short time.

Recep, 36 lessons with Kristine

Great and Efficient Tutor

I am an advanced English language speaker, and i work with Kristine just to smooth out my accent and improve the sound of my English. Kristine has been working with me through an effective program. I have been able to train my vocal muscles into more easily pronouncing sounds that accentuate my pronounciation. It is important that one often practices the sounds what Kristine teaches during the lesson. After, so far, about 5-6 lessons + practice, I can already hear improvement in my speech. Thank you Kristine!

Anna, 21 lessons with Kristine

Experienced and patient instructor

Kristine was quick at catching the mistakes that I made over the conversations and provided constructive suggestions that are helpful and easy to take. She was also very knowledgeable and understood my need right away. Thank you, Wyzant, for helping me find such an excellent instructor.

Yu, 1 lesson with Kristine

Kristine is so kindly and professional. She quickly noticed my weakness and she helped me to solve it. Great teacher, intelligent woman and she is also very easy going person.

Marina, 1 lesson with Kristine

Great support for my job interview practice

Kristine supported me to prepare and practice my job interviews. We went through many interview questions together and she corrected me on the pronunciation words, expression, the content and also provided me advice on how to handle unexpected questions. She would also follow up with me after the session and sent me good wishes, which was very sweet! I've had three sessions with her for interview preparation and just got an offer! The interview went very well, and most of the questions were the ones I practiced with Kristine. Because of the practice that Kristine instructed me on, I got to answer fluently with confidence. Thank much to Kristine, and I highly recommend her!

Emma, 7 lessons with Kristine
