A native English speaker with 10+ years of coaching and corporate training experience. In addition to language coaching, I also offer professional writing services (editing, proofreading, translating, copywriting, and more) and training for interviews, resume editing, editing and coaching for Ivy League admissions (including personal statements, Common App, etc.), pronunciation techniques, and preparation for the TOEFL, CELPIP, and IELTS proficiency tests. I am also a professional actress, which adds a fun and creative dimension to my coaching sessions! I offer a free online consultation to better understand your learning goals, and so that you may determine if I am the best coach for your needs.
Before starting my own consulting & coaching practice, I was Senior Program Director & Senior English Language Specialist at Lingo Canada, where I designed language training programs for Ubisoft, Hershey’s, Univar and IBS, and others. I also trained teachers, evaluated hundreds of clients, and held corporate-wide training workshops on writing, business communication and more, in addition to providing highly specialized coaching services to private clients and corporate groups across different industries, as well as several Fortune 500 companies.
Other past experiences include:
Paradigm PREP Language Institute, South Korea
Shakespeare Language School, Montreal
Department of Canadian Heritage - 2010 Federal Secretariat, Ottawa
I adapt my teaching methods to each client; however, as a coach, I believe in a collaborative and creative approach to teaching, with goal setting and measured progress tracking. My sessions often include conversation-based activities, role-play, coaching, grammar instruction + drilling, simulated test preparation, flashcards, quizzing, dialect/accent coaching, immersion activities, and more. We would determine the best plan to suit your needs during a consultation meeting, which I offer free of charge (and without obligation to continue).
Scattered availability throughout the week and Saturdays.
I offer in-person coaching at my office in Old Montreal; through Facetime/ Skype; or, at select locations in Montreal (may incur a supplemental fee).
*Due to COVID-19, I have temporarily suspended in-person classes. I remain available for online coaching sessions.
I've had classes with Stephanie for about 10 months now and I have to say she's the best English teacher I've ever had. I love how personalized to my needs our classes are but also how easily she adapts them on the fly to my crazy and often unrelated questions. She'll have you do different types of exercises and activities depending on the subject you'll go over so it never gets boring or repetitive. She always goes above and beyond, making sure I understand everything. The contents of each session are explained in detail but also in a very simple-to-understand way. Having classes with her has not only helped me speak the language better but also to transfer it to my job, which by the way Stephanie is aware of so we are always looking out for opportunities to polish up those skills. In short, you won't be disappointed if you choose Stephanie as your teacher. I'll give you a refund myself should that happen!
Needed help editing a small text and she did it super fast and clean!
The best of all! Great great great great great tutor! Great skills, great personality, well informed, able to easily explain things and rules, creative approach, flexible, kind, etc. Simply the best. Worth the every penny and every minutes.
Stephanie brings enthusiam and experience to every class. She is very patient and understanding and easily adapts her learning style based on my needs. She is very knowledgeable, extremely funny and friendly which makes the class more interesting. She loves what she does and cares passionately about her job. Stephanie communicates things clearly and efficiently and she always makes sure that I understand everything in a correct way, and if I have any follow up questions. We have covered many things so far from pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, and free conversation. She is very punctual and super organized. Always on time or even ahead of time. She never missed a class!!! Besides her expertise, you will have the opportunity to work with a kind and humble person. One of the best coaches I have ever had!! I feel the progress I make every time. For those who look for a professional to improve their English language skills, I highly recommend Stephanie. She is really an expert in her field. Thank you Stephanie for your time, patience, and expertise!
I sought Stephanie's help to improve my English and I got much, much more than just help. Not only has she helped me improve my conversational skills, she has also expanded my vocabulary, improved my spelling, and corrected my pronunciation. Stephanie knew how to help me in an indirect way, making class smooth and easy yet very beneficial. She tailored the classes to my needs so professionally that I didn't even feel as though I was taking classes; instead, I felt like they were more of a recap conversation of my daily activities and challenges. From the simplest grammar rules to the most advanced literature techniques, Stephanie has helped me improve my skills in every aspect of the English language. She is an amazing and caring teacher and above all, a very good friend. I would highly recommend her.
