IELTS - Tutoren & Lehrer für Englisch
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.

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. I'm Patrick, a TEFL certified and professional/qualified/registered English teacher (in both Canada and New Zealand) with almost 20 years of experience teaching students of all ages and backgrounds in both formal and informal settings. I can help you with the following (and much more): test preparation (experienced in IELTS, CELPIP, Cambridge, Pearson, GESE and TOEFL preparation); pronunciation and grammar assistance; accent reduction; meaningful conversations with vocabulary assistance; Business and Academic English; reading and writing comprehension and practice. I look forward to being able to help you in your learning journey with lessons tailored to your individual needs, as we work together to improve your skills and confidence in using English. Learning can be both challenging and interesting at the same time, so I personalize a lesson as much as possible. My style is based on patience and instructional scaffolding, just as I would do in my classes in a formal school, so learners of all abilities always have a chance to improve as we gradually and methodically develop your vocabulary, comprehension, pronunciation, and grammar skills, as well as your abilities in reading, writing, and listening. At the same time, classes move quickly once either a foundation for learning has been established or work has been mastered, using a mix of discussions and questions, listening and writing exercises, activities from various textbooks, pronunciation practice, vocabulary building work, and presentations of various types. So, if you need help studying or a test or to succeed in your chosen field of work, would like to improve your abilities as a beginning student, or simply want to have a chat to maintain and improve your conversational abilities, I look forward to hearing from you soon! * I also teach lessons for classes of students, so please feel free to ask about this, and other teaching options, if you are interested.
I'm a certified English tutor (TESOL) and a University Teaching Assistant/ PhD Candidate. I have an Engineering and Business background(Petroleum Engineering) with Master's and Bachelor's Degree. I also prepare people for IELTS, TOEFL, CAE and other English Test examinations as well as BUSINESS ENGLISH. To say that I love Teaching will be an understatement. My whole life currently is centered around teaching as I spend the most part of my day teaching university students. My future goal is to work as a University Professor. Teaching a language, unlike teaching technical subjects requires patience, varying techniques and methods that are student-centered and that is one of the reasons I love doing this. It encapsulates the efficient use of the five main senses of human beings and how proper channeling of it can produce a 'wow' effect. I usually take my students through the 4 main skills (speaking, writing, reading, listening). Students will practice pronunciations, intonations , accent reductions and all that there is to English speaking. Improvements of grammar, Use of appropriate vocabulary and active listening skills will all be tackled. To do all of this, I employ the use of relevant teaching methods(role playing, controlled discussions, word drilling, etc), study materials (audios, videos, flashcards, games, etc) and a lot of other procedures..
My name is "Ebe" and I'm from California (USA). I received my B/S in Biology (Cell), with a minor in Psychology from UCSD. After this, I studied medicine at the 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University (CUNI LF2). ☑️ 6+ Years of TEACHING (Children & Adults) & PROOFREADING EXPERIENCE ☑️ TEFL & TESOL-CERTIFIED (Masterclass) ☑️ COPYEDITING & PROOFREADING Certifications (Advanced) ☑️ Teaching Style: COMMUNICATIVE LANGUAGE TEACHING & SUGGESTOPEDIA + LINGUISTIC INNATISM & UNIVERSAL GRAMMAR (/LANGUAGE ACQUISITION DEVICE) Theories of Language Learning, for a more NATURAL and RELAXED learning experience ☑️ PROOFREADING (ARTICLES; THESES; PAPERS; POSTERS; ESSAYS; PROJECTS) - Scientific & General ☑️ ENGLISH: SPELLING, PUNCTUATION AND GRAMMAR Certification ☑️ IELTS (etc.) EXAM PREP ☑️ PERSONAL & PERSONALIZED LESSONS I believe that language should be learned deductively via active listening and conversating. This allows the person to naturally come to personal conclusions about the grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as learning little "tricks" to incorporating these aspects into his/her speech. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach and exceed your language goals...!!!
