Hello Verbling Students! My name is Paul Alfonso and I am a Native English Speaker from the United States. I have taught English language and writing for over three years in the USA and Nicaragua. I am TEFL Certified and am currently teaching in Portugal. My teaching style is student-centered, which is why I provide a free session to find out what you want to learn and how you want to grow. My goal as a teacher is to use different sources--music, movies, simple conversation--to make sure that you become a fluent English speaker. As someone who speaks Spanish and is learning Portuguese, I understand that learning a new language can be fun, but difficult. As your teacher, I will make sure you have tons of fun and learn exactly what you want. Thank you :)

Greetings! I should love to be your teacher so that your English can become confident and colourful at a sole swoop. My name is Tom, an English teacher, having led 2000+ online lessons, 3500+ face-to-face lessons, and 150+ group lessons. I am fully aware that learning languages, especially English, is vastly time-consuming, not to mention the infinite deal of effort that inevitably needs to be put therein. Obviously, since we humans have no USB ports through which we can absorb much information in a blink of an eye, mastering a tongue does not happen from one day to another – it is a longsome and gradual process. Even for the most talented English-learners, bettering their level from elementary to advanced takes AT LEAST a full year – if not longer –, provided that they incessantly remain determined and hard-working in the meantime. Therefore, English courses offering to perfect your English to such heights where the sky is the limit within a ridiculously short amount of time all embark with you on an IMPOSSIBLE mission. You CANNOT learn the splendours of an entire language, which has been evolving for over 1.5 millennia, in just a month or whatever the promised length be. Under my tutorship however, unlike many of the so-called tutors who merely CONVERSE with you and nothing more, I shall actually be TEACHING you a lot.In addition, since the service provided to you constitutes one-on-one contact, each lesson, which is tailored to your individual abilities and knowledge, is focused upon your utmost satisfaction. You will see that as I am charting your progress,your weak points are going to be patched up little by little. Please note that my aim is not at all stalling for more and more of your limited time and money but readying you with care for the obstacles of English that come up in everyday life. I am basically at your disposal for three major reasons:1) to show you very effective ways as to how to practise – combat – English, 2) to ensure that your English-related plans come true, and 3) to dub you a champion of the English language.In the end, after you have managed to forge the crude burden of English into your own fine armour, you will be able to wield it and wander the world in its splendour on your own – without my guidance. Before you want to entrust me with the above tasks, nevertheless, please hear me out a wee yet.What I guarantee is BY NO MEANS that the content of our sessions will magically pop in your head while you comfortably sit back and listen to me. It is YOUR hard-working attitude that is the key to your success, because – let us admit it – without the old-fashioned blood-sweating, nothing, not even your untapped knowledge shall strengthen up! Now that I have laid the table for you, let us have a glance upon what in particular can be found on the menu, shall we? ____________________________________________________________________________ Private English tutoring sessions Topmost objectives: • Mastering British English pronunciation and intonation • Gaining hastened fluency and bolstered self-confidence • Useful and real-life situational exercises • Differentiating British English from American English • Guaranteed word-hoard enrichment to a vast extent • Patterns and erratic tendencies in English spelling • Painstakingly grasping grammar and tenses of English • Assorted synonyms, their distinct shades of meaning • Never-before-seen module-methods and exercises • Exceedingly detailed and thorough clarifications • At any age and level are tutorees welcome

​I specialize in all forms of professional communication in business, interviewing, writing, examinations, basic conversation and kids phonics training. I have been a professional language trainer over 12 years. With a B.S. in Mass Communication, Extensive business background and being TEFL Certified I have taught thousands of students from around the world. I use a very dedicated lesson planing system, specifically designed for your business and professional needs. As a professional language instructor in China and Thailand for the past ten years, I have found many ESL students with difficulties reaching their true potential. I have also found traditional models of learning to be 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. I have lived in Asia for many years now, I have a strong understanding of Spanish Chinese and Thai. Tough I am not too bad at speaking these languages, do I know the feeling of not being able to speak at the level I would like; especially in high pressure situations, or when you most need it. That's why I'm here to help. I use the best and latest in teaching methods and textbook materials utilized the world over. My goal is to help you achieve your potential as an English language communicator. My education encompass a long career as a news reporter and journalist as a Mass Comm. student from the University of Utah. I have degree in Business Management from Weber State University. My master education is in Multi Media Film, MFA. I have successfully instructed thousands of students to pass entry exams of all levels, get great jobs, get into great universities and succeed at all levels of speaking, writing and communication for professional and interpersonal use. I am very excited to be able to offer such useful training methods for English learners world wide. No matter your speaking level this course will help you achieve your language learning goals.

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.

Hello everyone! I am teacher from the USA who is passionate about teaching English as a second language. I always look forward to delivering the best lessons that I can and I always do my best to try and learn from each and every experience. I graduated from University back in 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Education. From there I decided I wanted to travel a bit and looked at ways in which I could do that. I came across the idea of teaching English as a second language. I decided to get a CELTA certification because I read about how prestigious is is in the ESL world. In 2014 I received my Pass B CELTA certification and was ready to start teaching. Currently I am progressing my CELTA certification even further by becoming DELTA certified. In April of 2015 I finally found a job that I felt comfortable with and decided to go for it! I ended up in Arequipa, Peru thinking I was only going to be here for three months. After leaving over a year later, I knew I had found what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It was there that I fell in love with teaching English as a second language. In Peru, I taught English to mostly young adults; however the age range was anywhere from 10-60+. I was also able to teach all different levels of English from beginners to advanced students. It was really a great first job for me as I received so much experience. I also did a lot of private tutoring in Peru and tutor many different students in conversational English or test preparation (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) After Peru I landed a job in South Korea in the summer of 2017. This job is much different than the one I had in Peru as I am teaching mostly young children (6-10 years old). I have been in Korea ever since and continue to find different reasons for loving what I do. Both of the schools I have worked at have been great in terms of my professional development. I am in charge of creating my own lessons and teaching the subject matter as I see fit. I am growing as a teacher everyday and learning new ways in which to become a better teacher. In terms of my philosophy, I always try to make learning fun and enjoyable for everyone involved. If you don't love what you are teaching or learning you will not succeed. Since it is a language, to me the best practice is having the learner speak as much as possible. It doesn't make sense for the native speaker to do the majority of the talking because we aren't the one's trying to learn the language! I also understand that everyone is different, wants to learn English for different reasons and learns better in different ways. I am always willing to listen to what my student wants out of the classes and adjust my classes depending on what that is. I am incredibly flexible, adaptable and always looking to be a better teacher. A little bit about myself. I love to travel, have been to around 10 different countries and I am always looking to expand that number. I myself love to learn languages too and understand the difficulties when it comes to learning a new language. I can speak Spanish fairly well and am currently trying to learn Korean. I have also recently gotten into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I am about 4 months in and I love every minute of it. The challenge of it is very appealing to me and it seems like no matter what, you can always improve. I hope to meet you soon and look forward to our future classes together!

Hey! My name is Sam and I'm 24 years old. l grew up in a small hamlet called Whitchurch before moving to a town called Leighton Buzzard. I have a Bachelors degree in Biochemistry at the University of Leicester​ which I then went on to study at the Masters level for 2 years in Stockholm. This was an amazing experience and spurred me on to carry on my travelling endeavour. This lead me to a teaching position in Hanoi, teaching English to children. It's a strange jump going from Biochemistry to teaching, but this option allowed me to fully support myself meanwhile having the opportunity to travel and explore a country with vast cultural and scenic differences to the ones I've previously been.  I have taught English in schools and kindergartens in both England and Sweden before moving to Vietnam to teach English full time for 1 whole year so I have lots of experience with different levels. I love photography and this is my main hobby that I'm also trying to take more seriously, I love music and I play the guitar so if you have any of these common book a session! Look forward to talking to you! ​ Sam
