TOEFL - Tutoren & Lehrer für Englisch
If you want to communicate in English at a more confident level and become a more powerful speaker, I can help you. With over 8 years experience in instructing, both in front of a group of people and one-on-one, online and offline, I can assist you in reaching your English language speaking goals. Business English practice I do specialize in the instruction of business English as I understand the challenges faced by business people when trying to communicate to and with their foreign clients. This is done through role play and by helping you to gain an understanding of the cultural differences that may be preventing you from completing your business successfully. I custom tailor my sessions with your requirements to ensure that you make the best use of your valuable time. I provide feedback on written materials such as resumes, emails, presentations and other materials as part of the customized program for you the client. Interview practice For those English learners trying to find work in a foreign company, I provide practice to improve your interview skills. As a consultant in Canada, I was interviewed many times and I bring that knowledge to my clients through mock interviews and providing general advice on how to behave and handle the stress of an interview. General conversation practice I can also provide general conversations with those people who have learnt English in the past but have not used it extensively but are now finding that they need to remove the "rust" so that they can become more confident in their speaking ability. They may be traveling for conferences or workshops or just for vacations and they want to make sure that they can be understood and that they understand conversations taking place. Again, I tailor the sessions to the client's requirements, i.e. travel and hotels, restaurants, etc. IELTS and TOEFL practice I was involved in instructing IELTS and TOEFL speaking which has helped some clients improve their IELTS speaking scores by up to 1 point. I will also provide feedback on IELTS and TOEFL written materials provided to me before the session. My background and other information I have instructed in one-on-one and group settings with my groups ranging from 4 to 20 people. The levels have been from beginner to higher level English learners and people from all education and professional backgrounds. I always try to engage all of my clients by being able to discuss many diverse topics and interests. I can provide material on a range of topics to match my client's interests and needs. I provide immediate feedback and correct my clients issues without embarrassment to the client. Book a trial session The best way to find out if we can work together to improve your English level is to book a trial session. This session will enable us to get to know each other and I can understand your requirements and develop a plan to move you towards your language goals. Making you a better speaker I understand that my clients are interested in learning to speak proper English and I strive to provide the best English learning environment possible so that the client feels that they are steadily improving. I encourage all of my clients by instilling confidence in their ability and advocating continuing practice to become even better speakers. Thank you and I look forward to talking with you. To your language learning success
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.

MORE DETAILS ABOUT ME: What can I say? I just love what I do! And I’ve done it since 2003! And my students seem to love me since many keep coming back! Whilst I'm new on Verbling, don't let this put you off. I've taught more than 8,000 hours to many happy students from different backgrounds some of whom I've had since 2007. Anyhow, my goal is to make your English much better in a quick, fun and easy way whatever your objective! I’ve been the main reason why students from countries such as France, Spain, Saudi Arabia, China, Peru, Ecuador or Switzerland have achieved and surpassed their English goals. If I’m still doing it after all these years I guess it means I’m a great teacher but that is for your to judge with a free trial! I grew up on an island in England and have lived in 7 countries. I have lived in Ecuador since 2011. I have a friendly and relaxed teaching style, yet it is also critical for my students to significantly improve in every class and have fun as much as possible! As I get to know you better I adapt the material more to your interests and your personality! I want you to enjoy and feel good about speaking English. I want you to have more confidence, more fluency, more precision, more vocabulary, improved pronunciation and more fun! I want to eliminate grammar as much as possible and I do this by concentrating and eliminating your common errors. I don't want to give you boring grammar classes. The goal is a light dosis of grammar. Afterall, you can study grammar in your own time. I guide what grammar you should study since you don't need to know everything about English grammar to attain a high level! Over the years I’ve taught around 8,000 hours (online and offline) to groups, to businesses, to the Official School of Languages in Spain, to adult professionals, to adolescents and civil servant English teachers in Spain! … hey I’ve even taken clients hiking for the day so they can spend the whole day speaking English. In addition, I’ve had students stay with me for a week in England so they can change their lives for ever in terms of their English ability. Furthermore, I actually personally visit some clients if I am in their country. These students typically invite me to dinner, let me stay at their house or show their city to me in exchange for free English. They even let me visit with my wife! I guess I must be doing something good for them to do this! I understand my income and my family depends on the quality of the classes I offer so my commitment is to be better than any teacher you’ve had before and always look to improve my service to you. One of the ways I do this is to ask the student if I am on the right track. Feedback, positive or negative is always welcomed! So try my classes for free! A SUMMARY OF MY SERVICE: - Free trial: Take a no obligation free trial so you can see for yourself how good I am. This is a chance to check out the method and explain your objectives and requirements e.g. improve fluency, confidence and eliminate common errors. - A unique service: I offer a unique and personalised teaching method to satisfy individual student requirements whether that be an English exam (Cambridge, Trinity, IELTS, TOEFL, EOI...), an interview in English, medical or business English or general English conversation. - Free responses to grammar queries outside of class: If you have grammar doubts or need a quick correction to a phrase for an email, you can send me a message on verbling when you want and I will respond in quick time! - Study little grammar: You don't like studying grammar? No problem! With me, you will study grammar lightly to ensure you enjoy the English classes. On the whole, I look at grammar only when errors are made during conversation. The amount of grammar studied will of course depend on your level. - I am trilingual: Being that I speak French and Spanish fluently, I know better than most what it takes to learn a language and the problems you may endure. I will help you overcome those issues in a way you have never experienced before. - I have a Masters in Translation: This is better than a TEFL certificate. This shows a deep linguistic capability and critical thinking ability. - Error correction method: My method is about correcting your common errors. A language is too complex to be studying all the grammar. For homework you will get a list of mistakes you have made in the class to be corrected for next time. I encourage you to converse as much as possible and be yourself. - Possibility of a personal visit: I often personally visit students if I am in their country. Then you would get to speak English for free over coffee or a meal for example. - I have a written an English grammar ebook: This book was designed to help Spanish speakers learn more effectively and more quickly. It is called 101 common errors Spaniards make when speaking English. I include excerpts of the grammar from this book in every class to ensure you are progressing every class with your grammar knowledge! - Business English: My first degree was a business degree and I have professional experience in banking, tourism, and the property industry. I can help with interviews, CV/resumes, meetings, sales and marketing, negotiations, emailing and the like! - Founder and director of online school for Spanish market www.clasesinglesonline.com: I have run this for years and it is still going strong! It’s difficult to give a decent impression of my service here so please have the courage to contact me today! I would love to meet you! Mark Davies MA PG (dip), BA (hons) RECOMMENDATIONS: "Tengo 42 años y he estado estudiando ingles toda mi vida, clases particulares, academia de inglés, cursos online, inmersión en UK, etc... Hace dos meses empecé las clases de inglés vía Skype con Mark. Al principio fue duro, en lugar de avanzar tenía la sensación de retroceder pero, sorprendentemente, varias semanas después la mejora empezó a ser impresionante. Los errores escritos y orales empezaron a disminuir, mi fluidez oral y escrita mejoró pero el mayor logro ha sido en la comprensión oral. Nuestras clases son fluidas y mi dificultad de entender a Mark es prácticamente 0. Además, el 99% de mi trabajo es en inglés. Hasta ahora tenía que esforzarme enormemente para poder seguir las conversaciones. Desde hace dos semanas mi nivel de comprensión ha aumentado considerablemente y me siento mucho más cómoda y relajada". "En resumen, estoy encantada con el sistema, en mi caso los resultados han sido visibles a muy corto plazo. Además, me gustaría destacar la comodidad que supone realizar las clases en casa, así como la flexibilidad de horario. Awesome!!!" Montse Sandoval, Barcelona, España "I am grateful for having done an English online course with Mark and I totally recommend him. Today my English is a lot more fluent and I have certainly noted a big difference in my communication when I am abroad. One of the main qualities of my native teacher was the personal focus and Mark definitely knew what we had to concentrate on so I could make big progress in little time" Maite Gonzalez, Madrid, Spain Please note, I don´t teach beginner levels (A1-A2). I do pre-intermediate or above (B1, B2, C1, C2).

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. Thank you for your years of instructing and assistance for me to achieve this score. - Student from China. -------------- "Thank you very much for your help. You are a wonderful teacher." -- Medical Doctor, Middle East ------------- "Dear Marie!!!! I have passed the exam!!!!! Thank you very much for your great help!!!! Im so thrilled!! However, My grade is not very high, to be honest I passed with 1 point more than the threshold, very efficient 😊😊😊 thank you again!!! Looking forward to our classes!!!! You are the best proficiency teacher ever!!!" - Project Manager from Switzerland ---------------- "Dear Marie, thank you very much for your wishes. In Amsterdam the interview went well, now I have to send to them more materials, and then we will see what will happen. In the meanwhile, I got an invitation for an interview in _______ on Jan 23 for a position of post doctoral researcher. I will be interview on the project which I submitted _____. Therefore, I hope you will be able to help me to practice again together! If you agree, after the Xmas break I will send you some documents which constitute the basis of the interview." -- Ph.D. student from Amsterdam ------------- "I'm studying my mistakes right now.

See you next Sunday. (thumsup)" -- IT Engineer from Brazil -------------- "Thanks Marie! You helped me a lot! My technical interview had just 15 minutes, then we started to talk in Portuguese. Unfortunately, I forgot to record my conversation. But I was confident when I spoke. Next time I'll know how to be well prepared. Continue having classes with you, it will continue improving my English."---IT Engineer from Brazil ---------- REQUESTS FROM STUDENTS Hello Marie, I was wondering whether you may have an additional spot for me tonight or tomorrow night. I will have a presentation on Wednesday afternoon, and I would like to practice. I am terrible sorry for asking only now, but I was running behind my schedule and I only finished the power point now... What do you think? With thanks, (Student from Germany)
Hi there! Please read on for some important information about booking, and about how I can help you... First things first: at the moment, I am working with students who are intermediate or above. If you're a beginner, unfortunately I'm not the best teacher for you right now. If you're interested in working with me, please book a 30-minute trial class first. Also, I would love to hear about your language goals (or anything else you think I should know), so feel free to send me a message when you book. I've been teaching English since 2005, and over the years I've helped hundreds of students build, improve, strengthen, and perfect their English language skills. I emphasize: critical thinking, a positive attitude, an open mind, risk taking, and curiosity. We focus on exactly what you need for your specific goals, and I don't waste your time on things that aren't practical. Finally, I take notes for you during class so you can relax and focus on speaking! These are NOT just quick notes in the chat screen: I offer all of my students a PDF document at the end of each session, which includes errors and corrections, vocabulary, and pronunciation notes from that class.
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!*****
