Coupon available for students (message me for the code and explanation) if you buy a package of 5 classes. My name is Mary and I have been teaching ESL for four and a half years. I earned a Bachelor's degree in English from Ohio University (USA) in 2013 with a minor in Linguistics and a TEFL Certification. I then worked for a non-profit organization, Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services, teaching English to refugees from all over the world. After this position, I travelled to Cuenca, Ecuador and taught for a non-profit organization, CEDEI, for a year and a half. Both job experiences I had in this field prior did not have a lot of options for technology in the classroom but when I can I like to include articles, videos, speeches, use of Microsoft word in the classroom. I have now been teaching on Verbling Inc. for more than a year. I am very excited to continue teaching online to open up the possibilities to have a multi-media classroom. I also think that speaking and listening are the key to fluency and like to put strong emphasis on speaking practice: debates, conversation, and presentations. I also have experience with teaching paragraph structure, essay structure, and different styles of essays. I have taught grammar at all levels, also. I try to keep classes interesting with a mixture of activities and with minimal stress but well rounded knowledge of the language. My policy for missed lessons: I will wait 10 minutes for a student to arrive. If it is the first (or second for regular students) missed class and the student messages me with a reason, I will unschedule the lesson so that the student can reschedule. If this happens more than once or twice I will keep the payment for the wait time and preparation. I understand things happen, so I will forgive, once or twice of course, but I also prepare for the lessons and this is my full time job.

My name is Kelsey and I am a native English speaker from Ohio, USA. Currently, I am located in Seattle, Washington bringing my love of teaching to elementary youth in the local schools. I have been teaching for 5 years within Washington State. I have experience teaching non native English speakers as well as children with language delays. Teaching English to students with language delays has taught me to break down the English language into simplified terms so that the speaker has more success in their learning of how to speak and understand English. I have experience teaching conversational English as well as English that you will need while traveling or just in daily life. We can work on pronunciation, intonation, idioms, and colloquials as they are all a bonus specialty of mine. When you book a lesson, let me know your level of English (beginner, intermediate) and also how you prefer to learn. As a teacher, I am accommodating to your goals and learning style. Let's have a conversation and figure out the best way for you to learn English!

Learn English the easy, interesting “NATURAL APPROACH” way with Jack who has 15 YEARS OF INTERNATIONAL TEACHING at universities and companies in China and Chile. Hi, this is Jack in Auckland, New Zealand. I help you learn English as you learned your native language without being “taught”. You learn RELEVANT SUBJECTS in English that will advance your studies and career while enhancing your personal development and relationships. You learn English as a TOOL for COMMUNICATING. I teach English using the “NATURAL APPROACH” as developed by the renowned American linguist, STEPHEN KRASHEN (https://youtu.be/eTVbdstastI). No one at first directly "taught" you your native language--you ACQUIRED IT NATURALLY by learning to USE it to GET THINGS DONE. There is strong evidence that the best way to learn a second language (English) for COMMUNICATING IN THE REAL WORLD (and not merely to pass tests) is through learning subjects that are relevant and important to you in ways that are fun and stimulating. I am a WORLD CITIZEN with 3 citizenships and 15 YEARS OF INTERNATIONAL TEACHING at universities (MBAs) and companies in China and Chile including professional editing of business and university writing. I have taught English to ages 5 to 65. As a COUNSELOR I have 10 years experience in the Human Services in Australia. I was an ENTREPRENEUR, architect and builder for 15 years in Canada and Australia. Now in New Zealand I teach Academic and Career Preparation to international students from around the world. My teaching is based on in depth, international scientific research and consideration for individual and cultural learning differences. My expertise is in intrapersonal knowledge and interpersonal communication skills with a background as a counselor and educator for organizations such as Relationships Australia (https://www.relationships.org.au/). I am a couples and singles relationship counselor starting up and managing an introductory agency in Brisbane, Australia in 1997, Partners for Life where I appeared on TV (http://bit.ly/2eUXrNR). My strength is to create a learning environment in which participants feel both challenged and supported. I provide HUGE RANGE of FREE DIGITAL MATERIALS: my 37 business courses, dictionaries, pictionaries, academic and popular books in business, psychology, philosophy, politics, economics, et al. as well as audios and videos on these disciplines of study. Here are some of the skills and knowledge I offer and can help you acquire as you naturally learn English: • Business Soft Skills: interviews, resume writing, negotiation, project management, et al.—37 courses for you • IELTS and TOEFL examinations: Preparation for highest scores • English for Specific Purposes: medicine, law, finance, et al. • Professional Editing: Business & Academia (undergrad papers, postgrad theses) • Career Start or Advancement: coaching for resumes, job interviews, personal statements, etc. • Cross-Culture Studies: Differences in communication, management styles • Arts and Humanities: Literature, art, architecture, philosophy, et al. • Soft Sciences: Psychology, sociology, history, economics, et al. • Human Services: 25 years including Palliative Care, Aged Care, Health Care, Relationships Education, Parent Effectiveness Training, Montessori education • Personal Development: Life and Executive Coaching Come experience learning English “naturally” with me as an exciting adventure of self-exploration and self-knowledge that will help you become an International World Citizen at home in all cultures.

I like my job! Just two weeks after I began teaching in 2009, I realised that I had a talent. Therefore, teaching has always been easy for myself and I feel very confident. Many long-term students have become my friends. I have several unique selling points that are important when future students are searching for their teacher. Slowly, step by step, I too learnt elementary grammar together with my students and, since then, I can competently explain it. I enjoy grammar whereas the majority of native speakers cannot explain grammar at all, because they do not know it themselves. They learnt English as children and were never taught the rules of grammar at school. Furthermore, I have a nice British accent. In fact, my accent quickly improved when I first lived overseas 17 years ago. I began to deliberately speak clearly, carefully pronouncing every word, so that people could understand me more easily. This quickly became my normal speech. Furthermore, now I can speak conversational Russian. Finally, I am a patient person. Some children are much happier showing me their toys, in comparison to reading from a book or learning an English story for school. However, this is very normal. I allow the children to release their excitement as they show me such toys and pets, or tell me about their weekend, before guiding them back to the tasks required in our lesson. In fact, many of the intelligent children do not even need my help to do their school homework. They are clever enough to do it themselves, answering the questions often quicker than I can. However, they enjoy the company and moral support of studying with me. It provides them with motivation. I have a qualifying law degree from London.
