The sessions are extremely helpful for someone who is not a native speaker and needs to present themselves in the best way in an interview in the U.S.. Kevin will let you know the best terms or style to use to leave an impression on interviewer, what structure to apply to your answer when being asked questions like “tell me about a time when you needed to cooperate with different stakeholders.”Before the interview sessions with Omni, I never even got past the initial phone screenings, and I’d gotten no interview offers. But since working with Kevin, I’ve passed the interviews, and I’ve gotten a few offers for my ideal position. I highly recommend people to work with Kevin because he can give you sincere suggestions, cultural aspect of insights, and his experience working with many other non native speakers. All these things will help you feel confident and comfortable in a job interview.

I’ve worked with clients at these firms:
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 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.
I used his services to improve my English writing which greatly improved the quality of my research project. He is always worried about my progress, so he provides valuable tips that connects the English learning with my daily life. I am so grateful and deeply indebted to Kevin. This experience of working with an English tutor has been very important for my professional improvement and for my life in the United States.
I highly recommend Kevin to everyone who wants to improve their professional English 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.
As a foreign-born designer, my biggest challenge was that I’m not familiar with Western culture, especially in the work place. I used to be very quiet in meetings, check-ins, and any kind of meet-ups because I was afraid of ruining it by making grammatical mistakes.
Through more sessions, I was able to learn techniques for clarifying topic points in meetings when it’s not clear to me or when I’m struggling to understand what’s going on. If I hadn’t studied with Omni, I would still be in many unclear work situations, which is quite stressful. I’m truly grateful for Kevin’s helping me improve my situation! Highly recommended!
I was a master’s degree student in Graphic design at Academy of Art University. I’ve been studying with Kevin since Spring break 2018. If you need tutoring, I definitely recommend him. Even though I have studied with ESL assistants in Academy of Art, I sometimes need a lot of advice about English and my major’s study. Then, I found Kevin with many recommendations. He knows a lot about theory and research as well as design. Whenever I take his class, I get a lot of useful advice for my study from him. Finally, I have improved my grades and lessened the burden of my academic study. Kevin has also helped me with my job interview and job search skills. I was able to pass several phone interviews and was offered an on-site interview. I learned a lot about the job search process in America and feel more confident in my search. Anyway, you can do the first trial with him and you will know his professional tutoring skills.
I was a master’s degree student in Graphic design at Academy of Art. Academy of Art has ESL assistants but Kevin also gave me a lot of advice on content and concepts. His background is in academic topics like history, theory and research, so I got a lot of valuable feedback from him. Kevin also helped me pass the Midpoint Review, which was very difficult, and a lot of students fail it. I am sure I wouldn’t have made it through without his help. Definitely contact him if you’re working on degree at AAU or another art school. Update: I got a full-time job 2 months after graduating, so now I’m working at a major IT company in the Bay Area as a senior graphic designer. Kevin helped with the job search and networking and interviews. I could not have done this without Kevin’s help, and I strongly recommend taking his helpful classes Highly recommended!
I wanted to accelerate my career advancement at my consulting firm. Kevin’s coaching helped tremendously with my goals to convey more confidence and executive presence. With his holistic coaching approach, I didn’t just learn how to just sound like a confident professional – I learned how to genuinely become that person. My improvement was evident to others in my office as well based on subsequent performance reviews.
I would not have been able to achieve these same results on my own; Kevin’s coaching expertise and desire to provide value for his students is apparent from the start. He tailors unique lesson plans for each of his students by taking into account our communication goals, our natural speech, our writing samples, and perhaps most important of all: who we are as individuals (personality, attitudes/behaviors, cultural background and upbringing, etc). With this approach, Kevin helped me to pinpoint my communication weaknesses and understand their root psychological causes.
With customized activities and specialized techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, I not only developed my technical skills with writing and oral presentation but also an improved and more conscious mindset to help me avoid succumbing to my negative tendencies in the first place. Kevin is also very easy to talk to and at times I felt he was more effective than my therapist in guiding discussions to help me understand myself.
In addition to helping my personal communication skills, Kevin was also able to help me brainstorm ways to effectively promote a new product/brand that I am currently developing outside of my usual 9-5. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Kevin. With his level of versatility and expertise, I highly recommend him as your coach for whatever your communication goals may be.
I’m an international student from Taiwan and studying for a Master’s degree in Sculpture at Academy of Art University. My English skills were not even on the average level before we started classes, and I could only barely keep myself alive in school. Kevin has been giving me a lot of advice and helps to improve my English skills. He also was very helpful in passing the Midpoint Review. We’ve been training my grammar, writing skill, pronunciation, accent, time management, and future career and work development in our class. Kevin has not only helped me to improve my English, but also taught me to integrate into American culture, and helped me to have ability to find a good job in the future. Now I can communicate with native speakers very naturally, and I can write essays that impress the instructor. All in all, if you want to improve your English skills and also try to find a job in the U.S, Kevin is the best option you have
