Where will sessions take place?
Our sessions can take place by phone or video chat. We can use whatever video conferencing program you prefer –Skype, Zoom, Face time, Google Hangouts, etc.
What types of people and industries do you work with?
I work with people from many different countries, with English levels from intermediate to advanced.
I work with all ages as well, from high school students to senior executives.
I am proud to share that my clients have gotten jobs at great companies like PwC, Amazon, Brigham & Women's Hospital, and Ernst & Young, and gotten into schools like Collegiate, Spence, Riverstone International School, Harvard, Texas A&M, and Boston University.
You can hear more from my former clients here on the Testimonials page.
What will we cover during a session?
Everyone’s interview is a little different.
We will practice answers to common questions for the type of interview you are having. Each school and company has a different interview style and we will focus on the questions and style you need.
I don't cover technical questions, so if you are an engineer or IT person, for instance, I will not help you with the technical portion of the interview. I will help you with basic and behavioral interview questions.
Can you guarantee that my interview will be successful?
I can guarantee that you will be a much stronger candidate after our work together. However, I can't control how you do during the interview. That being said, my clients have had amazing success in their interviews.
How much does it cost?
I charge by the hour. You can decide how many hours you'd like to spend working on your interview skills. Someone with advanced English who is experienced with interviewing will probably need about two hours of practice, while a new interviewer with intermediate English may need more than that.
We can discuss the cost and how many hours you'd like to practice during our consultation call or please email me and we can talk about your specific situation.
How do I pay?
Payment is by PayPal or bank transfer before the first session.
