American Cultural Skills

How to hack the culture (and reduce your stress)

Cultural skills

There’s no doubt that cultural differences make success harder for international people working in the US. In a recent study, 67% of foreign born workers said they felt uncomfortable with small talk and casual communication with American their colleagues.

If you feel shy and unsure how to interact socially with teammates, Omni can help.

In our English coaching sessions, you’ll learn how professional artists talk about:

  • Concepts and Inspiration
  • Tools and Software
  • Challenges in your work
  • Solutions you discovered and the details of your process
  • Results and what you learned
  • Your portfolio so people say “wow”

Kevin is the best. We worked together for more than three months. He is friendly and knows what he is doing. As the CEO of a tech startup, I wanted to learn about American business culture and improve my presentation skills. After three months, I gained more than I had hoped for. Thanks, Kevin!

Kevin老师很专业,耐心和尊重其他人。擅长会议专业演讲,尤其在针对亚裔英语口音的发音,以及英文语法方面的指导和纠正 (professional speaking for meetings, pronunciation and grammar)十分实用和见效。如您所知, 大部分的学生从中小学的时候就开始学习英语了,但是我们的大部分英文老师都不是地道的英文老师。这导致我们从一开始并且一直在延续某些固定的错误发音。教条式的语法应试教育,使我们不能在实际日常生活交流中准确地应用正确的语法。如果你还在寻找可靠专业和十分有教学技巧的英文老师协助你的日常生活和工作,Kevin很值得。在此再一次感谢Kevin老师!

I highly recommend Kevin to everyone who wants to improve their English professional skills. I have been working with Kevin to improve my English professional communication. Kevin is an excellent English instructor, very clear, and taught very interestingly. As a CEO of a tech company, to be able to communicate as an English native is crucial. Kevin is an angel in my career; he focuses our classes on subjects he knows will impact my career. I have really enjoyed our lessons.

I’m a product designer from Japan. When I joined a company in the U.S, I lacked confidence in meetings and communication. As a senior-level designer, I was keen to improve my speaking skills and luckily found Kevin. I’ve been working with him for two years. We often role-play design meetings or brainstorming sessions. Through the sessions, I learned structures of conversations and many phrases which made my communication better and helped build confidence. His coaching style is unique – he communicated with my teammates and conducted a survey on me to figure out my current level, based on that, he tailored lessons to me. He also taught me cultural differences between America and Asia beyond English skills. If you are from Asia: Japan, Korea, China, etc., and would like to take your English communication skills to the next level, he is the best coach.

I work for an international company based in Korea. I hired Kevin to help train me in business communications with clients in Europe. 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 class.

I’m a Product Designer based in San Francisco and I’ve been working with Kevin since December 2019 to fix some of my language issues (grammar, prononciation, refine vocabulary). Kevin is very patient and he has adapted his method based on my personality, my culture (I’m French) and my particular needs. Throughout the months, I’ve made significant progress and my colleagues have been noticing my improvements. Working with Kevin made me more confident when speaking in public as well. In addition, he was a great help to dive into American culture, what to read and watch. if your aim is to hone your English and to feel more confident, Kevin will lead you step by step to reach your goal. I couldn’t recommend Kevin’s English tutoring enough if you need some help.

I'm a data scientist in a pharmaceutical consulting firm and I have been studying with Kevin since 2019. We met through my company's accent training program and I'm glad they chose Kevin as our tutor. He is patient, professional, and easy to work with. He spotted my speaking issues and made a clear plan at the beginning of each session. Then he has acted on them to help me adjust how I speak English and improve my pronunciation and fluency. If you want to gain the skills and confidence to communicate well in English and become more fluent and accurate when you speak, Kevin is your go-to.

I work in construction industry where communication plays an important part. With English as my second language, I used to find it hard to express my idea explicitly and concisely. However, after spending 12 lessons with Kevin, I believe I've found the right way to improve my English systematically. Kevin's class is very informative and he will customize the class based on each person's situation. I highly recommend those who want to improve your speaking and writing English try Kevin's class.

I am a Civil Engineering major working in a construction company. I worked with Kevin for three months. He is professional and pays attention to the most subtle problems in my speaking and writing. I have become more confident and have learned to write and present in a audience-centered manner.
