Valutazione Competenze - Insegnanti e tutor di lingua inglese
My name is Karolina and I have been teaching English to both children and adults for over 24 years in various countries and organizations. With a great deal of blood, sweat and tears and of course, love, I also built my own online English language training company which had always been a dream and goal of mine. Parallel to that, I joined Verbling 5 years ago and continue to love working here! My love and passion for the English language has been a constant in my life and has over the years developed into a deep interest to help as many language learners reach their learning goals as possible. As an ambassador’s child, I had the privilege and joy of visiting and living in a number of incredible countries and living the life of a nomad! Being born in Switzerland and moving to Canada at the age of 3, English quickly became my native language. My parents, realizing that English would not only be an asset but a necessity growing up in various countries, chose to enroll me in American International schools throughout my school education. I have rich and beautiful memories of growing up in South Africa, Greece and as a young adult moving to Germany and then later The Netherlands. Over the course of these years, my love of the English language only grew and deepened, and at a very young age I embarked on the path that would eventually lead me to where I am today: a teacher who truly loves what she does! As a teenager, I first fell in love with the language through poetry and literature, immersing myself in the beauty of words that I felt could almost magically create new worlds and capture feelings. This led me to my own experimentations with poetry and writing which to this very day are things I enjoy dearly and are very important to me. I was fascinated at how language allowed people to communicate with one another, brought people closer together and managed to bridge incredible gaps. As time went by and I began moving from country to country I also very quickly understood how valuable English was as a language and as a tool. Being the only common language everyone spoke in many of the countries I visited, I realized just how incredibly important it was to have a grasp on the language if I wanted to truly communicate with and understand others. Fast forward twenty years and this is more vital than ever before. In a world led by globalization and one where the international language of commerce is English, having the ability to speak English is truly no longer an asset but rather a necessity. As a young adult in Germany, I came to the realization that I wanted to turn my passion for the English language into a career. From that moment on, I invested my time and energy into attaining my goal of becoming an English teacher. I took my first step by gaining my CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) which then led me to my first teaching positions at language schools in Berlin. Over the years I taught both General and Business English in various companies including Wall Street School of English, Ebay Germany, Jaguar and Thyssenkrupp among others. I soon followed my certificate with an Advanced Diploma in Applied Linguistics and eventually a Masters in Education (Applied Linguistics), solidifying and expanding my knowledge on the foundations of the English language, how it developed over the years and how we can as teachers successfully help others learn the language. I continue to further educate myself at every opportunity, most recently completing the “Foundations of Virtual Instruction” course through the University of California. I realize that the face of education is rapidly changing and moving ever more towards online learning; more accessible and flexible learning. It is a trend that I believe will continue to develop over time, which is why I chose to focus on expanding my online teaching career. The other equally important reason for moving into online teaching was my interest in and desire to work with people from around the globe- what an incredible opportunity! Finally, I find myself after many years back in Greece realizing my long-term dream of starting my own business where I can share with others my knowledge of and passion for the English language. Nothing brings me more joy and fulfilment than helping others attain their language learning goals and supporting them through the often challenging but always exciting path of learning a new language. I always strive to make each students’ learning experience a unique one; one filled with support, patience and encouragement. I have had the fortune of working with truly wonderful individuals who have inspired me and continue to inspire me, and who remind me- though I never need reminding!-just why I became an English teacher. I hope that we will have the opportunity to meet and work together very soon. Sincerely, Karolina Thomoglou PLEASE NOTE: Last minute and same day cancellations will NOT be refunded unless there is an emergency situation. If you book a lesson and believe you won't be able to make it- please unschedule or reschedule it as soon as possible. Teacher will wait up to 15 minutes before opening the hour to other students. There are no refunds for missed lessons- if you think you will not make it in time- please inform me so that I may reschedule our lesson.
I love exploring new ideas on life, love, business, Global Issues, Technology, Art, to name a few. and I use them to teach English around the world on some online platforms. I am a certified English teacher and I have teaching experience of over 5 years now. My approach is instead learning about Jack and Jill who went up the hill why don't we talk about the crazy, beautiful, and cruel world we live in. We will still be using English to discuss but in this way, we will learn something new. I'll learn from you and you'll learn from me. - Business English - Working with a global team - Business Negotiation - Interview - Global Issues - Technology - Life - Design and Art My focus in class will always be on communication because I believe communication is the best way to learn a language. here's how I do it. 1) I will send lesson material before our lesson (video, audio, phone script, interview questions, post, etc) 2) you have to watch that video multiple times if it's necessary to create a base for our lesson. 3) We will have a conversation about that specific topic in the lesson. see you later. Have a great day Thanks

Hello There! I am Neil and I have been a corporate and general English trainer for over 9 years now with special focus on IELTS training too. I have done my PhD and I have an American TESOL certificate to boot along with a diploma in medical sciences. And I have taught students from many nations online for several years, and it has always been a great experience. :) I have extensive experiences in training people to be highly competent users of English in the 'native-way.' My lessons are very interactive! I am a very friendly, comfortable and funny teacher and I use effective, innovative and interesting ways to teach so that my students really learn a lot and also have a good time even when they are tired after a long day's work. My teaching methods involve listening, reading, speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing and free talking and I often use pictures and funny video clips for descriptive purposes. Everything is aimed at giving my students maximum practice. My students have never scored less than 7 in IELTS so far and all of them are extremely satisfied with my classes. I DO NOT TEACH GRAMMAR and instead use natural acquisition of language through immersion into a total English environment. I always respect my students and expect the standard courtesies from them too. Let's learn with fun! Cheers! [NB: I can teach Bengali too] [PS- Check my book out at amazon :) https://www.amazon.com/dp/1549837362]

Hello!! Are you looking for a talented and friendly English teacher? My name is Seth, and I am originally from New York City. I am CELTA trained and have been working in Latin America as a professional ESL teacher since 2009, and currently live in Colombia where I have taught at university for over four years. I teach General and Business English, and also have broad experience with TOEFL and IELTS Exam Tutoring, Resumé/CV and other Document Copy-editing, Pronunciation Coaching, Conversation Practice and Interview Preparation.

Over the years, I have worked with students at all levels (A1-C2), of all different ages and from different backgrounds. I am currently studying to improve my Spanish (B2) and beginning to learn Portuguese (A1), so I understand the difficulties and frustrations of, not only learning a new language, but also finding the time in a busy schedule to study. I am confident that you will benefit from my knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm. I have a deep love for languages and teaching, and will happily model our classes to fit your particular preferences and requirements. I enjoy the process of aiding students as they gain mastery over the English language and feel personal satisfaction when I see them gain confidence and skill in its use. I am proud of my track record of successfully helping students accomplish their English language learning goals. Let me help you accomplish yours, and I promise, we can do it together. Shall we begin?

I’m Kevin Palmer. in 2002, at my first teaching job, I had a student named Ning. Ning was wonderful. She was intelligent, friendly, and she worked hard. Every day she studied English textbooks for 4 hours! She tried to remember 50 new vocabulary words every day! But, after 6 months of hard work, she still could not speak. Sadly, this was true for all of the students in the class. I felt terrible. So I asked other teachers for help. But they had the same problem.. very few of their students improved either. That’s when I realized something was wrong– something is wrong with normal English teaching methods. I wanted to help all of the happy, friendly, intelligent, wonderful students like Ning– and I decided I would find an answer. I would find a way to help my students speak English powerfully. For many years, I studied books about English teaching. I constantly tried new methods in my classes. I read research studies. Eventually, I found incredible new methods. I was so excited! Immediately I began to use these new methods in my classes… and every day I worked hard to IMPROVE these methods. After several more years of testing and improving, I finally found the answer! My students began to improve their speaking. They learned to speak, not just read and write! And even better - they loved my classes and they were happy! I was excited! I loved seeing my students improve. My classes were full of excited students! Now, I can help students everywhere in the world… and now I can help you. I’m so grateful to be your teacher. I promise I will always do my best to help you speak excellent English. I will teach you to speak English fluently so you can avoid embarrassing mistakes with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. I will teach you to speak English powerfully to get a better job, or even save your job. I will help you make international friends. I understand your problems and I will help you speak English fluently! Welcome!

Hello Verbling students! I am a certified teacher of English as a foreign language and I love teaching American English! I'm also a self-taught Spanish speaker so I understand the challenges of learning a new language as an adult. Let's chat! Send me a message or book a trial class with me so I can find out exactly what you need to take the next step on the road to fluency. Have a great day and I'll see you in class! Привет из Америки! Меня зовут Луис и я носитель языка из красивого города Остин (штат Техас). Я самостоятельно учу испанский язык, и это позволяет мне отлично понимать особенности изучения новых языков от лица студента. Очень важно оставаться расслабленным и получать удовольствие, погружаясь в языковую среду, и наслаждаться процессом! Разговорный уровень - это не цель, которую можно достичь в определенный день, иногда вы будете делать два шага вперед и один назад. Это нормально. Просто продолжайте двигаться вперед, и у вас все получится! (Many thanks to my friend Max for the Russian part of my profile.)
