· Accent Reduction · Online Stephanie is an excellent teacher and mentor. She is very patient, positive and encouraging. She explains everything in details and makes it easy to change my accent. She has a good ear and within the first 1 or two classes she gives you the top 5 sounds you need to work on. It takes a long time to reduce accent, but even with meeting once a week it was possible to make great progress with Stephanie's help. I highly recommend her to anyone who would like to reduce or change their accents or would like to learn public speaking.

Stephanie was very interested in who and where I was coming from to find out how she could help me the most. Since day one she has been very easy to contact and has answered all my questions. I know I am going to learn a lot from her. I am so glad I decided to take these lessons from Stephanie!
