Kenntniseinschätzung - Tutoren & Lehrer für Englisch
During the past 3 years as an ESL Trainer, I have given tens of thousands of hours of lessons, writing instruction, and workshops, working with hundreds students from all nationalities, ethnicities, countries, and professions through a variety of platforms and in physical classrooms. I have earned my 120-hour TESOL Certificate, from ITTT, where the coursework is 100% interchangeable with their 120-hour TEFL. I have also completed a Certification for Teaching Business English from ITTT. I specialize in developing major business skills, such as running meetings, presentations, negotiations, and interview preparation. This includes job and scholastic admission interviews, or if you are the person interviewing a candidate. I have developed a five part course, with the option of adding lessons as needed, and multiple lessons in a day. I also thoroughly correct papers and assignments for grammar and vocabulary improvement. I enjoy working with business professionals, university students, and students motivated by the idea of self-improvement.
Business English - Academic English - Conversational English - English for Travel - Pronunciation. I will help you gain confidence while increasing your fluency and precision. I create a plan for each student according to the student’s interests and goals for improvement. I come prepared for each lesson to help students progress quickly, easily and with confidence. I really enjoy teaching English as a foreign language and seeing them progress and reach their goals. For the past three years, I have dedicated myself full-time to this work. I bring a depth of experience: BA in English and BA in Italian; TOEFL & Masters courses; thousands of hours of private, in-person and online tutoring; and 26 years of owning/working part-time in business. Outside of teaching I have two children: one attending University and one pursuing a Masters in the Health field. I live and work half the year from the USA and half from Rome, Italy. I love animals and had a small family farm for 15 years. I enjoy being active - hiking, yoga, skiing, cross-country skiing, and some tennis and golf. I sincerely enjoy people and, in particular, students who are motivated to improve their English. Instructing students in English and brings me great joy. Please contact me if you have any questions.

I have 30 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught all levels; from basic to advanced grammar and conversation, as well as business English, pronunciation, TOEFL and TOEIC prep. I have taught overseas in the Peace Corps and in the States at language schools, the World Bank, continuing education programs and refugee programs. I especially enjoy helping you on the more difficult aspects of English grammar to improve your ability to speak and write more precisely. And I love teaching pronunciation. I always design my lessons specifically for you, based on your skill level and your goals. I believe that language learning is a lifelong process of discovery. As you learn the language, you learn the culture, and vice versa. My role as a teacher is to provide the 'rules' and guidelines, give you opportunities to practice what you are learning, provide suggestions for improvement and continuous feedback on your progress. Here is what one of my students says about me: "Martha helped us to get a deeper understanding of English language, expand considerably our vocabulary, strengthen our conversation skills, and also develop a more complex and correct grammar. After living in many foreign countries where she had close contact with their diverse cultures and languages, she is able to adjust her mind and teaching to the needs of international learners."
Hi everybody! My name is Stan and I'm 29 years old. For the past 6 years I have been living and working as an English teacher in Bogota, Colombia. I was born in Russia but raised in the Netherlands. Feel free to send me a message anytime and I will gladly respond.
My name is Karolina and I have been teaching English to both children and adults for over 23 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.
