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

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 Verbling students! I am a certified teacher of English as a foreign language and I love teaching American English! I'm also a self-taught Spanish speaker so I understand the challenges of learning a new language as an adult. Let's chat! Send me a message or book a trial class with me so I can find out exactly what you need to take the next step on the road to fluency. Have a great day and I'll see you in class! Привет из Америки! Меня зовут Луис и я носитель языка из красивого города Остин (штат Техас). Я самостоятельно учу испанский язык, и это позволяет мне отлично понимать особенности изучения новых языков от лица студента. Очень важно оставаться расслабленным и получать удовольствие, погружаясь в языковую среду, и наслаждаться процессом! Разговорный уровень - это не цель, которую можно достичь в определенный день, иногда вы будете делать два шага вперед и один назад. Это нормально. Просто продолжайте двигаться вперед, и у вас все получится! (Many thanks to my friend Max for the Russian part of my profile.)

My name is Karolina Thomoglou and I have been teaching English to both children and adults for over 17 years in various countries and organizations. With a great deal of blood, sweat and tears (!) I recently built my own online education company which had always been a dream and goal of mine. 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.
