Hello! I'm Paul and I love English and helping people communicate well. I've spent years teaching and tutoring in Thailand and Vietnam, so I understand the cross-cultural differences of languages and the challenges that all ESL speakers and writers face. I'm CELTA (Cambridge University) certified, and I spent 20 years as a writer and editor for newspapers and magazines in the US, Japan, and Thailand before I began teaching. This means that I have an in-depth knowledge of language as communication: I used it for many years before I began teaching it. My college degree is in English with a concentration on writing. As a former journalist, my specialty is teaching writing: not just written English, but the superior use of it so you can communicate well.

*** CURRENTLY TAKING ON NEW STUDENTS*** My name is Chris, I’m from London, England, and I love teaching English as a foreign language! I'm a professional teacher who has been teaching since 2012 and I want to make your English learning experience unique and get you to fluency as quickly as possible. After years of experience, research and listening to student’s feedback, I believe that there are 5 principles that make you learn languages fast and effectively: 1. CUSTOMISATION - Learn what you want to learn and get personalised feedback from a professional at the end of a class and in a video within 24 hours of your class. 2. MAKING MISTAKES WITH DELAYED ERROR CORRECTION - Build up your confidence and fluency and find out what wasn’t correct later. Repeat your corrected sentences and vocabulary after class with an audio track. 3. MAXIMISING SPEAKING TIME - Maximise your precious class time by speaking as much as possible and get to fluency more quickly. 4. MOTIVATION - Keep your excitement for learning and avoid those moments when you feel bored of learning. 5. ACCELERATED LEARNING TECHNIQUES - Let me use my skills, activities and games to make your progress quickly in an area of English you are weak in. I’d love to see you in a class if you are considering taking classes with me, and I’d be very happy to help you on your journey into the world English. I’ve had some wonderful first classes and met so many great people throughout the world since I’ve started teaching online, and I’d be delighted if you were one of them. Most people understand what the trial lesson is, but it’s not always clear to everyone. Please just look at the points below to check you know what you are booking. Before your first session starts please consider the following: - Using a microphone with earphones or a headset will give much better sound quality to your lesson. Using computer speakers will probably result in echoing. - Google Chrome seems to be the best browser for Verbling Video. - Doing a test call on Skype with a friend or family member will give you a good idea of how strong your connection is, and if it is sufficient for a class on Verbling. If the speech isn't clear, try turning off the camera. If the speech still isn't clear, try to reconnect. If you are still having problems, upgrade your internet connection. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE TRAIL LESSON IS: - A 30 minutes introduction class. - An opportunity for you to see how the lessons work. - An opportunity for you to ask me any questions. - A way for us to create a plan for your learning goals. - A way to test your internet connection - Occasionally the connection can be problematic for some new online students. - A way to get to know each other. THE TRIAL LESSON IS NOT: - A cheap way for you to get your CV or written work corrected. - A lesson which is focussed on the areas in which you need to improve. - A cheap way to get a 30-minute conversation class with the active intention of not continuing. Of course, if you decide that I am not the right teacher after the class and you wish to find another teacher then that is perfectly fine. N.B. I exercise the right to accept or refuse to give lessons to certain individuals.

Hello! My name is Ruth, and I would love to help you with your English! I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have been teaching English for 5 years to people from around the world who have moved to the USA, and 3 years at a summer camp in Russia. I do have a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and I have taught all levels from beginner to advanced. More than anything I love to see and hear your progress in English. I teach grammar, reading, writing and speaking, but I probably tend to favor speaking/conversation/phonetics. There are a couple reasons for this: Firstly, when I am learning a language, speaking is always the most difficult aspect for me - in part because it has the potential to be the most embarrassing, and no one likes making mistakes. Secondly, speaking is the most difficult to master for many people because it is used less often, especially when you do not have to use English on a daily basis. It is easy to find books and movies in English to work on reading or listening, but finding someone to talk to can be much more difficult. I do my best to create a safe and supportive atmosphere where you can practice and learn and make mistakes. I love answering questions and seeing faces light up when you suddenly understand. I hope to see you in a lesson soon!

Hi, My name is Adam and I am from the UK. I have been a teacher for 4 years. I took my CELTA in 2011 and have never looked back. I lived in South Korea and taught in two different schools to every possible age and level. I currently live in Mexico and I teach a range of students. I teach a lot of business English to employees that have interactions with companies all over the world. I also help students prepare for the IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL examinations. I like my students to be in a relaxed environment where they can speak naturally and enjoy their classes. I really believe that enjoyment is a key to learning. I am taking Spanish and German classes at the moment so I can relate to you as students. I plan my classes to the interests of my students so if you are visually oriented I will have plenty of images. Do you like playing games? I have lots. Whatever you want, I can help you. If you want business English for your job, exam help (for the exams mentioned), help with a grammar point that is annoying you or simply want to continue your English practice through conversation I am the teacher for you. So, send me a message and we can organize some classes. I hope to see you soon.

Hello Verbling students! I live in the United States and I love teaching my native language. 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.)
