I work for an international company based in Korea. I hired Kevin to help train me in business communications with clients in Europe and the US. All of my written and phone communication with them is in English, so I needed some help.
Kevin has extensive experience teaching global business English. He has particular skill in helping non-native professionals “translate” their meanings into English. And for “paraphrasing” business concepts and information.
I learned the proper words and sentence structures to use in e-mail, meetings, and presentations. I also learned about how to adapt to cultural differences in international business.
Along with this, I learned global business manners by performing various situational role plays with him.
To anyone who wants to learn real professional English, I would highly recommend his guidance and instruction.
Omni is about success and making the world a better place – but it’s also about enjoying a good laugh once in a while!

I grew up in Texas but moved around a lot as a kid. Since my family was always moving, I got good at meeting new people and making friends. At the same time, my dad’s colleagues were usually from other parts of the world: Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. So I made friends with their kids! I got to enjoy the food and influences of their cultural background as I was growing up.
But I also saw the challenges my international friends went through due to discrimination and the communication and cultural differences they had to deal with. As a result, I wanted to help when I got older.
I started Omni English to provide students and professionals from other countries and cultures with the communication and soft skills they need to succeed.
The mission is simple: to help you as international student or professional achieve your dreams in the USA. No matter where you’re from or whether you’re in tech, finance, design, healthcare, UX/UI, marketing, data science, or the arts, I’m here to help.
