Active Promotion (10% off)

쿠폰 적용
By using this coupon, you can save as much as $2 on a lesson.

In addition to this discount, teachers will have a fixed pricing ladder (between 3-9%) that will be applied to lesson packages in the following way:

1 lesson – price set by the teacher (20$ an hour)
5 lessons package – 3% discount (save 60 cents per lesson)
10 lessons package – 6% discount (save $1.20 per lesson)
20 lessons package – 9% discount (save $1.80 per lesson)

The fixed pricing will begin around June 25, and will replace the current set-up, which allows teachers to set their pricing ladder how they choose. Hopefully, this new system will make it easier for teachers and students to decide what package could work best for them.

원어민 쌤 프로필

Please note: I teach on Verbling during the summer. This summer, I am available June 7- July 23.

Hello English Learner!

I am so happy to teach English to students who have different ages. I wrote "About Me" so many students can understand, and I can write very well. If you want extra help with advanced ("hard") English, please look at the last paragraph, "Advanced Student." If you want help learning about English, please see, "Beginning-Intermediate Student."

Beginning-Intermediate Student
I love to teach when the student and I can talk without noise, but I also teach in a classroom every day. I hope in the summer I can help students online; I do not teach English in a classroom in the summer, so I have time. I know English is hard; I helped an Arabic-speaking adult student develop her English, and I have helped a student who speaks Spanish. Also, I learned French in college, so I know a new language is hard, but English is really very hard!

Advanced Student:
If you're interested in developing your vocabulary, improving your grammar, and increasing your writing and reading skills for a specific test or class, please let me know. My college degrees are not just in teaching but also in English, so I understand many famous authors' books, such as Shakespeare's plays and other content you would study in high school and college.
To teach books and increase writing skills, I blend together English guidelines with lessons based on how you learn, read, and write. Online learning can be limited because we are not in the same space, but English is a conversation-based subject, so I think you would discover you understand books and develop your writing through our conversations, email exchanges, and other lessons I create for you.
