Warren Ray, Founder

Personal Profile

I started OmniInterview with a mission: to help my clients quickly improve their professional English and communication skills to accelerate positive results in moments of transition.  

For more than a decade, I've been working with adult learners to help them use foreign language to reach specific goals, first as a Spanish as a Foreign Language teacher, then as an English as a Foreign Language teacher, then as an Executive English Coach, and now as a Job Interview Preparation Coach for Non-Native English Speakers. 

This experience has taught me not only how to identify opportunities for improvement, but also the value of constructive feedback, strategies to implement the feedback, and guided practice.  That continues to be my aim for every coaching session, constantly asking myself: What small steps can my client and I take together during our session to have significant improvement on your communication when interviewing? ​

A coaching process goes far beyond feedback, though.  My goal as a coach is to accompany you in a moment of transition.  So, expect to receive homework assignments and Discovery Activities - the objective is to empower you to make daily improvements, according to how long you have before your interview.  

What I love about coaching are being part of the key moments of growth of my clients.  Although I love it when my clients send me a message saying "I got the job!", I love it even more when we see small steps towards improvement in our coaching sessions.  This, more than anything, motivates me to continue delivering the best coaching program for non-native English speakers preparing for interviews.

My philosophy as a teacher is "I'm not here to improve your English; I'm here to improve the way you use the English you have right now."

NOTE - I no longer offer English classes, or conversational classes.
