Online ESL Teacher

As a multilingual person who has lived, studied and worked in more than 30 countries across six continents around the world, I have a deep understanding and appreciation of what it takes to learn a new language and successfully transition one’s life and work to another culture and country.

I’ve learned three other languages myself, and taught English as a Second Language for both conversational and professional purposes to students and adults in and from multiple countries, including: Japan, China, Korea, Germany, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua & Costa Rica.

I also provide cross-cultural training to ease the integration process for your whole family, with empathy, cultural sensitivity and understanding.

With a bilingual MBA from IESE in International Business, I also teach English for successful business negotiations, and organizational culture change to realize the strategic goals of mergers.

So whether you want to gain confidence and ease in daily ...

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

Online ESL Teacher

After working with all levels of ESL ( English as a Second Language) students in the Netherlands for 15 years and now back in the USA with Asian college students since 2015, I am confident in my ability to help anyone to speak, hear, read and write English in a professional manner and level optimally. My Dutch students have won regional public speaking awards to participate nationally and with an extensive performing arts background, I am most expert in boosting any student's performance as an English speaker and/or writer in whatever subject my students choose.

"I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!"
