Phonetics - English Tutors & Teachers
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 30 years of experience teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught all levels; from basic to advanced grammar and conversation, as well as business English, pronunciation, TOEFL and TOEIC prep. I have taught overseas in the Peace Corps and in the States at language schools, the World Bank, continuing education programs and refugee programs. I especially enjoy helping you on the more difficult aspects of English grammar to improve your ability to speak and write more precisely. And I love teaching pronunciation. I always design my lessons specifically for you, based on your skill level and your goals. I believe that language learning is a lifelong process of discovery. As you learn the language, you learn the culture, and vice versa. My role as a teacher is to provide the 'rules' and guidelines, give you opportunities to practice what you are learning, provide suggestions for improvement and continuous feedback on your progress. Here is what one of my students says about me: "Martha helped us to get a deeper understanding of English language, expand considerably our vocabulary, strengthen our conversation skills, and also develop a more complex and correct grammar. After living in many foreign countries where she had close contact with their diverse cultures and languages, she is able to adjust her mind and teaching to the needs of international learners."

Hi all! I'm currently accepting new students, so please get in touch. My goal is to help you reach the confidence and fluency of a native speaker! Nice to meet you! I’m Jake, a native English teacher from the United Kingdom. I’m TEFL-qualified with advanced degrees in languages and translation, and have been teaching English for several years. In 2016 I made the move to teaching English online, and I’ve never looked back. My students come from all over the world, and have a huge variety of different goals. I like to adjust my sessions to suit the needs of each individual student, to ensure that you get the most out of our time together. Whether you’re learning English for your IELTS or TOEFL exam, for your professional development, or simply out of a love of the language, we can create a plan together to reach those goals. I look forward to meeting you, and wish you the best on your quest to master English! – Jake. *PLEASE NOTE 1: I have different rates for teaching children, so if you would like me to teach your child, please let me know in advance of the lesson. Many thanks.
⭐ I'M NOW TAKING ON NEW STUDENTS- CHILDREN! ⭐ 💬 “Absolutely fabulous! We enjoy her lessons!” Yumi, Japan. 💬 ✔ Are you looking for a fun and stimulating English teacher for your child(ren)? ✔ Or are you needing help with increasing your confidence with speaking? This is exactly what I specialise in! I am a fully qualified Primary teacher, with an honours degree. I have been teaching for more than 20 years in classrooms and online. As this is my full time job, I believe it is very important to ensure my students- adults or children- get results. I feel it is necessary to feel comfortable and have fun whilst learning ANYTHING! So with this in mind, I aim to provide a fun, stimulating and relaxed environment for each student to learn and make great progress. 💬 “Caroline is a great, friendly and reliable teacher. She prepares and gives the right work, which fits the student’s level. Her lessons are very helpful in improving the English skills.” Sara, Japan. 💬 Our sessions will focus on developing the language needed for conversations, whilst covering key skills, such as listening and reading. My main goal is to improve your confidence so that you can communicate better in everyday situations. With my younger students, I can provide lessons in all the key skill areas, using a variety of stimulating resources- books, videos, imagery and games. Before the trial lesson, my adult students undertake a fully comprehensive evaluation. This provides me with a complete analysis of their abilities and highlight areas for development. During your trial lesson, I will be able to determine your fluency and talk about areas that need to be improved from the evaluation. We will create a Learning Plan on what to do to achieve your goals (each of my students receive a tailor- made course, suiting their needs and goals with learning English). 💬 “Awesome teacher!” Matheus (Brazil). 💬 For my younger students, I use the trial lesson as a way of getting to know the child(ren), asking interesting questions that will encourage the child(ren) to communicate with me freely and confidently. We may even play a little game! This time provides me with a fabulous opportunity to discover the abilities of the student and initialise an action plan on how I can help develop their skills. I have also achieved the 120 TEFL/TESOL certificate and have taught students from various countries. I look forward to meeting you and starting your adventure with English!
Hello! I am the right teacher for intermediate and advanced adult and young-adult students who appreciate a prepared and organized but still fun and relaxed approach to their language-learning process. Do you need someone knowledgeable about language and the learning process? I am that teacher. I have a Master's degree in English, certifications to teach from several states in the U.S., and decades of experience teaching. I scored in the 98th percentile on the GRE in verbal reasoning and have learned foreign languages myself, so I know how you feel and the challenges you face. As a linguist, I can help you perfect your conversation. I am a grammar and style wizard, so if you need someone to help you with compositions, presentations, or dissertations, I am the person for you. If you are a person who enjoys creative writing, you will be happy to know that I have had short stories and poetry published in online magazines and my young-adult novel "Backbiters" was released this summer (you can see it on Amazon!). In other words, I can help you polish your creative pieces. I have taught ages 5 to 70+. I have taught face-to-face and online. Besides my native language of English, I speak Spanish and some French and Japanese and a bit of Italian (and have done a bit of Mandarin study though I have not reached proficiency yet; Portuguese is next!). Regardless of your native language, I am willing to learn about it, so I can best help you learn English. Learning a language takes time and effort, but I can make it as fun and efficient as possible for you, using dedication, compassion, and effective pedagogy. When I am not teaching, I have many interests. I read. I write. I love theater, art, and blues music. I swim, kayak, bike, run, and do yoga. I have to be active because I love to go to ethnic restaurants and cook ethnic food –- of course traveling to other countries to experience new cultures is the best! I also have an addiction to documentaries of all sorts because life is so interesting and a guilty pleasure of watching talent T.V. auditions. :) Whatever your interests, needs, and goals, I can help you reach them by assisting you to learn accurate, useful, and beautiful English. Let’s start now!
