I am from America and have been teaching English for several years. My focus is Pronunciation, Accent Reduction, IELTS, Business English, Preparation for Job Interviews, Simple Conversation and Public Speaking for intermediate and advanced students. "Practice makes perfect," and increases self confidence in order to feel comfortable in a conversation with a native English speaker. I would like to work with you on your goals, and be a catalyst for you to move forward in your dream. Learning a language is not just about the text book, but it is also about having fun in our lessons, where we can both work together in a partnership to achieve a common goal and see improvement. If this is what you are looking for, then I invite you to schedule a lesson with me. I now live in Southeast Asia and work with students of all ages and levels. My TEFL with a TESOL Level 4 certificate has enabled me to work in universities, as well as with business owners. Working with students of the same culture has given me the insight to compare the languages and understand why certain sounds are more difficult. It's all about retraining the brain. Breaking the old habit, coming in with the new. Learning how the tongue, lips and jaw should work together in unison for clear pronunciation. In America, I worked with an adult learning class where students were from many countries. Tweaking my ears for several pronunciation differences, because of various cultures present in one class, I gained the experience of listening to numerous accents and learning about their differences in understanding letters, sounds and the how to of correct pronunciation. I have an extensive background in social services, health care and fitness, and the healing arts. I volunteered with the Peace Corps in Honduras, Central America and was immersed in their culture and learned Spanish. I understand the difficulty of learning a language and how frustrating it can be when they still don't understand you!:-) I now am learning Vietnamese, and it is not easy!:-) It is important in learning any language, to have confidence in order to take the step to speak with a foreigner. I am here to motivate and inspire you to take you to the next level.  Share with me your goals and motivations. Is this for a job interview, IELTS test, conversation, business needs, or public speaking?  We will talk about the fears of speaking, and get you up to speed with better pronunciation so you will feel more confident.  Set up a schedule, understanding your timeline, if there is one.  Create an Action Plan I want to help you to feel confident in speaking clearly and loudly, so others can hear you! I will do my best to give you all the tools you need to progress and feel confident in any situation. Looking forward to working with you!

I am an English teacher currently living in Spain. I first started teaching Spanish as a foreign language to college students at NIU, Illinois, USA. When I graduated from my Master's degree I started to work as a Court interpreter and translator. After a few years I came to Spain and I am now doing what I love: teaching English - I still work as a translator, which I love too. Being a translator helps me better understand the process of learning a foreign language as an adult, and develop teaching my techniques. Let me show you how - let's build your English skills together and improve what you already have. You will enjoy learning English! Soy profesora de inglés americano y vivo en España. Empecé dando clase de español en la universidad de NIU, en Illinois, en EEUU, pero me vine para España, donde llevo varios años dando clase de inlgés a españoles. Soy traductora, así que puedo comunicarme en español cuando sea necesario: a veces la traducción es una herramienta muy útil en una clase de inglés. Prueba unas clases conmigo y verás cómo aprendes. Una vez que conozca tu nivel, puntos débiles que haya que trabajar, tus necesidades específicas y tus preferencias, trabajaremos juntos para conseguir lo que hasta ahora no has conseguido: empezar a hablar, a comunicarte en inglés y a ganar la confianza y soltura que necesitas. Y, a partir de ahí, ir subiendo de nivel hasta donde te propongas llegar.

Hello everyone. My name is Russell. I have taught English for many years. I have taught all levels, from beginner to advanced, or from levels A1 to C2. Mainly, I have taught in Cape Town, but I have taught students from all over the world. I like to find out what interests my students, as most of us enjoy talking about what interests us. Naturally, if your lessons are interesting to you, they will also be enjoyable. From my experience, using English to talk about what interests you and what you enjoy will enable you to meet and socialise with English speakers who share your interests. I have been in business for several years, and much of this time has been spent in managerial positions. Because of this, a have a good general knowledge of business, and I would be happy to include the world of business in our lessons. I look forward to working with you as you learn English.

My name is Stewart, I am 29 years old and I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas! I studied screenwriting (Writing for Film and TV) while in college and had the fun experience of working on a couple TV shows and Movies. I've moved on from that life, but I'm still a very active movie/television viewer. Please send me a message first before you book a class so we can get to know each other. Even after our sessions are complete I like to talk with students, so feel free to message me if you need anything. If you have any questions, requests, scheduling issues, or just want to chat, let me know :-) PLEASE FOLLOW ME! I message coupons to my followers. Hurray! I provided a buy 5 get 1 Free coupon in my profile for new Verbling students. Please don't forget to use this :-) ______________________________________________________________________ Reviews from some of my super students :-) Aliya - United States/China — December 5, 2015 I even do not know how to put words into it, he just awesome!!! Helen - United States/China — June 25, 2016 My kid have had two classes with teacher Stewart, and she likes him a lot! After every class, Stewart sent messages with a very nice summary about what he taught, and what my daughter needs to improve and the schedule for the following class. I really like the way he taught my daughter and appreciate it. Strongly recommend him to young kids:) Julia ChenJung - Taiwan — July 21, 2016 My teacher is funny, I like talking with him and create stories together. André - Brazil — December 17, 2015 Stewart is THE MASTER!!! Allen - China — August 14, 2016 Stewart is a very good teacher, very patient, always prepared for each student. The content is very suitable and exciting for my little daughter. Thanks! Bashayer - Saudi Arabia — August 16, 2016 lovely human being and excellent teacher <3 Definitely will book more classes with Stewart. Dany - Costa Rica — October 27, 2015 Stewart is a great and patient teacher, he always prepares an interesting class focusing on what you need or want to improve. I recommend him if you want good quality lessons, feedback and to have some fun too. Hadi - Unites States / Iran — February 26, 2016 Stewart is a perfect teacher. I am very excited about find right teacher for english. He corrects all my wrong sentences. He has a very natural accent and he is very polite. Sergey - Russia — June 1, 2016 Hello Everyone, My name is Sergey and I am from Russia. I have been taking classes with Stewart since October 2015. My goal is to get 7 band score at the speaking part of the IELTS exam so every lesson we try to practice speaking as much as possible. The speaking part consists of 3 sections. You should be able to speak on familiar topics such as your job or hobby (section 1), describe something(section 2) and answer more complicated questions (section 3). Usually, we begin our lesson with a short talk about things going and then discuss the topic of the lesson in detail so our lessons cover all 3 sections of the speaking parts of the IELTS. During the lessons, I write down new vocabulary but after every lesson Stewart send me a brief summary of a new vocabulary, my mistakes and corrections and an audio file with pronunciation. These audios are extremely useful because they help me to improve my pronunciation and memorize new words because I listen to them nearly every day. If I forgot the meaning of the word from the audio then I could revise it in the summary. One of the features of Stewart's lessons is that he gives interesting native speaker vocabulary. I guarantee that you are not going to find it in textbooks. On top of that, his lessons are fun :) and I really enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and Stewart's sense of humor :) Recently I took a mock IELTS exam and got 7 for speaking thus I achieved my objective. Nevertheless, I am not going to slack off and hope to improve my score at a real one. I think if you are an open-minded and easy-going person and know your goals then Stewart is your teacher. Your English will never be rusty :) Sincerely, Sergey

Hi! My name is Joss and I am from England. I’ve been teaching English now for around 3 and a half years mainly as a business English teacher. I specialise in improving pronunciation mistakes and grammar mistakes and I try to create lessons that make my students talk as much as possible. The lessons themselves are normally very informal but also quite structured. I usually give interesting articles for homework and between half and three quarters of the class is spent talking about those topics. For the rest of the class I do exercises to improve grammar mistakes and I also review new vocabulary from the previous lessons. I also have a passion for travel, running, building start-ups and meeting new people! Don't hesitate to get in touch to book a lesson.
