IELTS - Tutoren & Lehrer für Englisch
I'm a professional English teacher. I have a TEFL qualification and I have been teaching since 1999. My career started in Japan where I was a conversational English teacher. Within a year I had become the headmaster of a private English school serving 400 students. In 2014 I returned to the UK where I established an online presence. In 2016 I became an MBA consultant preparing students for the rigorous admissions test and interview. If you are preparing for the VIVA interview, I can help with that too. I'm a published author with many years experience proofreading. I'd be happy to have a look at your essays. I am very patient, and you can ask me all the questions you want, as many times as you want, until you understand very well. Let me know what you need and how I can help you, and I will be here for you. I will do my best to help you achieve your goals of becoming fluent in English. I'll introduce a bit more information about me. I am British and I live in Bournemouth. I'm a B1 speaker of Japanese. After a career in the civil service in England, I travelled to New Zealand where I resided for 8 years. I attended university there and studied computer science at Massey University. In New Zealand and then moved into the private sector where I gained experience in the technology market and the insurance industry. In 1998, I resumed my education and took a CELTA course to pursue a dream of teaching English in Japan. After gaining some experience in a school in Saitama, I opened my own schools in Chiba and Tokyo and became a registered Japanese corporation. I employed 10 Japanese support staff and several foreign teachers. I ran those schools for 16 years and taught hundreds of students of all ages and levels. In my downtime, I like to watch movies and read books. I’m the author of the book Fluency Secrets and I’m writing some new books on English language study. I love mountain biking, running and swimming. One day I would like to do a triathlon. See you online!
Hello! I'm Paul and I love English and helping people communicate well. I've spent years teaching and tutoring in Thailand and Vietnam, so I understand the cross-cultural differences of languages and the challenges that all ESL speakers and writers face. I'm CELTA (Cambridge University) certified, and I spent 20 years as a writer and editor for newspapers and magazines in the US, Japan, and Thailand before I began teaching. This means that I have an in-depth knowledge of language as communication: I used it for many years before I began teaching it. My college degree is in English with a concentration on writing. As a former journalist, my specialty is teaching writing: not just written English, but the superior use of it so you can communicate well.
Hi, my name is Jasna and I have been a teacher here on Verbling since 2016. How would you like to learn to speak English from a native speaker? I was raised and educated in Australia where I did a lot of voluntary work as a translator helping new migrants settle in to their new country. I also helped a lot of children adjust to learning in their new English speaking schools. I am now living my European dream and often work with local businesses and non-profit organizations with translation services. But my favorite work is tutoring young students with English to help further their education or for when they decide to travel abroad. In 2016 I completed IELTS Academic Exams with a CEFR C1 result so I can offer first hand advice on what to expect with these much sought after exams. My career in Australia was mainly centered around Finance & Administration, including my own business, which means I have had many years of practice perfecting business communication skills. Whether you would like to learn how to speak English as a hobby, to travel, for study or to communicate better with your business partners I would love to help you achieve your goals. My approach to teaching English is with regular practice and conversations. My hours are flexible and if the standard hours I have set do not meet your requirements, please send me a message and I will do my best to arrange and make available a time that will be suitable for both of us. I hope to be speaking with you soon.

STUDENT COMMENTS I have been putting a 5 star after every classes! You deserve it. Thank you - Student from India ------------ Marie, I go the job offer! Thank you so much for your help and support!!! - Student from Japan. ----------- Marie, Thank you so much! You have given me so many great advice and helping hand. You have also pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone. My husband has been saying "Marie is awesome!" almost everyday now. I didn't want my decision to move to the States to hold my career, but now I can strive for an even better career thanks to you. I will definitely be taking more classes with you since I still have a lot to learn from you. Again, thank you so much for all your help!!! - Student from Japan. --------------- Hi Marie! Thanks a lot to you for being my English teacher. It´s a privilege to have you as a teacher. We have not known each other for a long time but since we started classes, I have learned a lot with you. I have noticed errors that I had been committing for years and I was not aware of them, because nobody had corrected me before. In addition to all that, I have discovered that communicating in English is not just knowing the whole grammar perfectly and the vocabulary, but it is also the intonation of the words that helps you that the message you are trying to convey is not misunderstanding, and much more I have learned with the little time we know each other. Thanks for your encouragement and for your good advice on life, these help me to see life with different eyes and if there is any obstacle that hinders me from continuing with my path, I will not stop because of it, I will jump it ! 🙂 I hope you continue to be my guide for this long journey that is to learn English and to help me achieve my goals. Thank you so much. Best wishes.....Student from Madrid --------------- Here's my SAT report.

Hi, I'm Bonnie, and I'm not your average e-teacher! I'm a professional writer, an editor of academic literature, a researcher of language acquisition, and a graduate of linguistic studies; I'm also an animal lover, a collector of body art, a bike-traveler, a music enthusiast, and a keen examiner of both the human condition and the universe we inhabit. But first and foremost, I'm a certified ESL teacher with more than 13 years of experience (including 3 years as an online instructor and 2 years on Verbling). I provide editing services (please contact me for more information) as well as more traditional online classes. I specialize in business and academic English, informal discourse and conversation, exam preparation (TOEFL, TOEIC, and IELTS), phonetics (the sounds of speech), and pragmatics (the use of language in the North American context, such as idioms, colloquialisms, and social conventions). I have experience teaching all ages and levels, although I specialize in intermediate- and advanced-level adult learners. My hardware is a Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720p HD webcam, and I have a high speed (50 mbps) cable internet connection. Let's talk about your English goals and how I can help you achieve them. I hope to meet you soon! ****Please note that my availability will be limited between March 8 and April 26. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes!*****
Hello! I am Dani Cook from California. I am a graduate from UC Berkeley with a bachelors in English. I am a native English speaker and am currently traveling with my husband, devoting all my time to freelance work and English tutoring. My teaching career began in South Korea back in 2013 tutoring university students. Since then, I have continued to teach in South Korea at a private English academy and most recently, at a Korean Elementary school. I have also worked part time online for the last 2 years teaching students from all over the world and all ages in my spare time. I like to tailor my lessons to each student. Some wish to learn English which best suits a job interview while others wish to work on their speaking and writing. I can help with it all and am happy to do so!
