Children (4-11) - English Tutors & Teachers
EXPERIENCE - I'm a qualified Tefl teacher with the Certification, Teaching English as a Foreign Language, 120 hours. I also have a BA Honours Acting Degree and an A Level in English Language & Literature. I'm an experienced teacher on three other online teaching platforms. Over the years, I have assisted my non-native friends with English Language issues and the positive feedback made me realize that I had a calling. STYLE - As a teacher, I like tackling pronunciation issues. I use a lot of techniques learned during my Bachelor of Arts Degree to aid my students with the typical difficulties they have in this area. I also focus on grammar and place speaking practice at the top of my priority list when working with students. I'm a teacher that seeks to keep my students' level of anxiety as low as possible. I know from personal experience as a student of Spanish this can be a problem. I focus on the needs and level my students are at. I work with students from all over the world from as young as 8 years old to adults in their 40s. I cover a variety of topics and levels. My classes are engaging and fun. I work closely with my students to help them to reach the goals they desire. ME - I'm an avid reader and I love writing poetry. My love of the theatre spurred me onto the pursuit of my BA Degree. I love travelling and I spend a lot of time in Spain and working on improving my Spanish. I also enjoy rollerblading, salsa dancing and meeting interesting people. I have a diverse circle of friends in London and I enjoy getting to know people from all over the world and learning about their cultures. I have a passion for the English language and I enjoy passing on my knowledge to others. I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible.
Hi, My Name is Jared. I'm a native English teacher from New Zealand and I have been working in education for over 10 years. I hold a TESOL certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. More importantly, my experience includes over 10,000 hours of online English classes and I have taught in both the academic and outdoor education sectors. Teaching is something I love so much because not only can I teach from my experiences, I can also learn a lot from my student's experiences. Currently, I am living and working in South America, where I myself am a language student. My style is heavily based on conversational English with an emphasis on teaching pronunciation and vocabulary in fun and interesting ways.

Hello! My name is Mr. Kat Rogan. I am a native English speaker from the United States and I have been a professional language trainer for over 14 years for all age groups and levels of learning. I started teaching English in China at Dalian Maritime University in 2006. Since that time I have traveled to many countries, and have met and talked to just about every nationality you can think of. As and traveler, educator, and avid learner, the biggest thing I can say I have discovered about myself during this time: I really love languages and cultures. For me, learning languages and about people and their heritage is the "spice of life." This is what truly drives me to be a better person, keep moving forward, and improve at all levels of my life - every day. It's interesting, during these travels and experiences of the past decade-and-a-half, I have learned how to say basic concepts and greetings in at least 10 languages, which is a lot of fun and a big talking point in my day to life. People often ask me what my favorite language is. And after English, of course, I would usually say, it would have to be. 2. Chinese 3. Spanish 4. Thai 5. Japanese 6. Italian 7. Russian And more. (don't forget my adopted brother from Portugal - what's up Duarte) There are many languages! And really love to talk about them! But, at the top of my list is Chinese. I spend a lot of time practicing Chinese. Being a 4000-year-old civilization, there are endless amounts of wisdom, knowledge and culture to be found in this language. So, for me, it's a lifetime journey/mission to understand more about this language, culture, and people. I also love Spanish. Born and raised in the United States, Spanish is my second language. I studied Spanish in high school and university, but I know I need to improve. Though I can understand quite a bit of what is being said in Spanish, my speaking does need some practice. Spanish is spoken quite quickly. So, I know how much I need to improve. I also know how important it is to keep practicing my speaking ability with Spanish, as with any language. Though I am not too bad at speaking languages, I do know the feeling of not being able to speak at the level I would like. So I keep trying to learn new methods and systems of learning. And I really like to learn more about people, and their cultures. This is why I love learning languages. And this is also why I really love my job as a language trainer, teacher, or coach. So I hope to make your acquaintance and have many lessons with you. Kat Rogan Qualifications & Experience My education encompasses a long career as a news reporter and journalist as a Mass Communication student from the University of Utah. I also have a degree in Business Management from Weber State University. My master's education is in Multi-Media Film, MFA. I specialize in all forms of professional communication in business, interviewing, writing, examinations, basic conversation, and kid's phonics training. And I am TEFL certified to teach children. Having been a language trainer and learner for 14 years, I have taught thousands of students from around the world. In my experience, I have developed dedicated lesson planning systems, specifically designed for the student depending on their needs. Interestingly, I have found many ESL students with difficulties reaching their true potential. I have also found traditional models of learning to be rather rigid and outdated for progressive thought in the high-paced technologically-driven communication world we live in today. These issues are very important when it comes to speaking at high levels or high-pressure situations. My system brings together the best learning programs into one comprehensive lesson planning system and is adjustable to each specific need and goal of the learner. Some of my classes have helped my students to pass entry exams, get great jobs, get into great universities, succeed at all levels of speaking, writing, and communication for professional and interpersonal use all while having fun. My classes are fun, and I really love teaching that's why I still do it after all these years.

Hi everyone! My name is Amy Lewin and I’m a CELTA qualified English teacher from the UK with 12 years of teaching experience. I am back teaching here on Verbling after taking a break to complete my postgraduate master's degree and teaching theatre and drama. I am working mainly online so I am still accepting new students. **I am not taking on students under the age of 6 years old at the moment** As well as being an English as a foreign language teacher I am also a theatre teacher and drama workshop facilitator (so you can be assured your lessons will never be boring!). I’m a person who loves a challenge and to try new things. Around 15 years ago I decided I wanted to travel the world and I haven’t stopped since. I’ve travelled extensively and have lived in Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. My life is about experiences and learning about different cultures and people. I consider myself an artist, an actor, a dancer and an educator. I’ve been teaching English for around 12 years, in the UK, Asia, and South America. Most recently I taught in South Korea and prior to that I taught English in Argentina, where I was living for 6 years, so I also speak Spanish! I have taught a whole range of nationalities, predominantly Spanish speakers, and I have taught all ages and all levels of English too. I have experience teaching very different kinds of classes such as, general English, exam preparation classes, pronunciation classes, conversation classes and grammar classes. All my classes are tailored specifically to your needs, focussing on the area that you feel you want to work on and topics that you will find interesting! The most important thing about my classes is that they are fun and interactive. It is much easier to learn a language if you enjoy taking classes! I try to incorporate games, discussions and debates, videos, music and a whole range of other interesting authentic material into my classes. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message. I hope to see you in class!!

I have also assisted many intermediate and advanced students reach a higher level of fluency. Teaching English is my passion and I pride myself in the fact that I can identify my students core issues and help them to become confident English speakers. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, I look forward to helping you achieve fluency and reach your language goals. I have helped 100's of students achieve their desired level on the IELTS exam. Many of my students have also gone on to get the job of their dreams after I helped improve their interview skills. After our first class, I will send you a detailed analysis of your current English level. This will be our road map to improving your fluency. I received my TEFL certificate about 6 years ago.

Hello Friend! I hope you're having a great day! My name is Brent and I am from Santa Rosa, California. My hometown is in the California wine country, a beautiful place with outstanding weather. I have lived in Japan for thirteen years. I lived in Osaka for one year and then moved to Tokyo. I came to Japan because I am a poet and I love haiku. Japan is a wonderful country that has changed me in many positive ways. And the sushi...wow. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature/Poetry with a Minor in Education from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently pursuing my Masters degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. My interests include haiku, hiking, comedy, studying Japanese, reading, food, traveling, baseball, and music. I am a very curious person and I enjoy learning about others' hobbies and interests. As a language learner myself, I understand the challenges involved with learning languages, which helps me address student concerns and needs in a constructive way. I teach all kinds of English, including general conversation, business English, TOEIC, TOEFL, Eiken, and kids lessons. I teach a wide range of ages, from two months old to eighty years old. Let me customize English lessons for you. We can use any books, newspapers, movies, songs, or other learning materials you like. I can also create original materials just for you! I love my students' English. There is no bad English. No one has bad English. If you can say "Hello.", that's great. If you can say "Nice to meet you.", that's great. The key is to own your English because it's yours! It's all about enjoying studying and getting better every day. One of my favorite haiku poets is Kobayashi Issa and this is one of his best poems. 蝸牛そろそろ登れ富士の山 Katatsumuri sorosoro nobore Fuji no yama Climb Mount Fuji, O snail, but slowly, slowly. This haiku has many meanings but one of my favorites is that Issa is telling even a snail, which is very slow, to slow down and enjoy climbing Fuji. It's the same with learning. Learning a language is like climbing Mt. Fuji. It's challenging and it takes time. Of course we want to improve every day but we have to make sure we look around and really enjoy the beautiful scenery, we should enjoy the new language we learn. Being a poet, I like to share my love of language with students so that they can experience more fully the joys of studying English. I am a people person and I use humor and a student-oriented approach to create a fun, comfortable learning environment. Your goals are my goals. I hope to meet you soon!
