We All Need Help to Navigate the Skills that Ignite Our Career Success

About Me

I’m Kirsten Smith.
I Help Non-Native English Speaking Mining/Minerals Industry Professionals Build Their Career Dreams.

I worked as a geologist/development chemist/metallurgist/senior process engineer (expat) in the mining industry for more than 20 years.

I saw first-hand the struggles non-native speakers have in effective communication in English.

This is holding them back from reaching their full potential and I have been actively working with motivated people who have taken charge of their English skills and seen the career benefits first hand.

English is rapidly becoming a required skill for people to advance in mining, and most industries if I am honest. If I can help people learn the skills they need to allow them to showcase their talent instead of avoiding communication, peoples worlds will shift. Imagine. I do.

“I had the pleasure of being a student in Kirsten's speaking program. Throughout the course, we engaged in many enriching conversations, one of which focused on the Panama Cobre mine closure. Kirsten's teaching not only expanded my vocabulary and language structures but also deepened my understanding of Australian culture. Her unwavering support, kindness, and punctuality created a well-structured learning environment that greatly enhanced my overall experience. Kirsten is truly a remarkable teacher, and I cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone seeking an exceptional English educator

Danyal, Metallurgical Engineer

"I had great days during Kirsten's 10-week program. The program covered several aspects of the English language and leadership, from rhythm and intonation to technical aspects of mining (in my case, specifically uranium and REE). The feeling of constantly having "aha!" moments brings a wonderful sense of progress. Additionally, Kirsten is a very kind and pleasant person, always willing to accommodate tight and dynamic schedules."
