A mock interview is an emulation of a job interview used for training purposes. The conversational exercise usually resembles a real technical interview as closely as possible, for the purpose of providing experience for a candidate. It can help a student understand what is expected in a real job interview at information technology firms and can help an applicant improve their self-presentation and confidence.

Our instructors will provide feedback on different aspects of an interview process. Students will be advised on how to handle an upcoming interview.
The majority of candidates do not receive an offer because they make mistakes during the technical portion of the interview. Rarely does it have anything to do with a candidate’s intellect or ability. Instead, it’s due to lack of interview preparation.

Don’t waste time and opportunities. We can help you tackle the most difficult technical questions at your next programming interview.

Immediate Results. During the coaching session, your interview coach will simulate a programming interview and provide on-the-spot coaching. At the end of the session, you’ll walk away with a strong study plan and pointers on how to solve common types of technical interview questions. Going into your interview, you’ll have more confidence and make a stronger impression — increasing your chances of getting an offer.

Personalized Advice. Don’t settle for off-the-shelf responses that you’ll find in a typical interview preparation book. We will tailor feedback to your experience.

End-to-End Service. We follow up with your applications until you get a job offer!
Our instructors have worked at top companies including Google, Shopkick, Amazon, Oracle and Microsoft. Therefore, they have connections with many Vietnamese and US employers. They also know what employers are looking for. For students who have a strong technical background and perform well in the English class, we will match them to an appropriate employer via Pass's referral system.


    In each unit, students will be introduced to English phonetics and phonology, then learn how to pronounce consonants correctly. Students will develop necessary vocabulary on the topics though various activities including:
  • Relevant listening comprehension.
  • Relevant reading comprehension.
  • Pair-work speaking practice.
  • Role playing: speaking one-on-one with the instructor in the form of an interview or talking to colleagues / clients.
  • 5-minute oral presentation about technical topics.
  • Agile stand-up: the classroom environment will resemble one of top technology companies such as Google, Amazon, Houzz, or Microsoft. This will also help students to get familiar with international and professional working environment.
