About Me

Hello Verbling!
"Speak a new language so that the world will be a new world." - Rumi

I'm a passionate and dedicated lover of English, people and our planet. I believe that learning should be student-centric so I will make any lesson that you book with me focus on your specific needs and interests.

My methodology is based on the Principled Communicative Approach, and I believe that connection is one of the key components to developing one's language skills.

I cover exam preparation, relocation language and Business English, however, I also teach conversational classes, academic writing and address literature and thematic writing.

I previously worked as a high school teacher, in a multilingual context, teaching English as Home Language, and then as a Second Language to teenaged students. I have an understanding of how development affects learning retention, and how to best adapt to a variety of ages. I worked as a school teacher for eight years, and some of my former students are now published authors and teachers in their own rights. I have been working in an online context for three years (since 2018) and have helped people in a wide variety of professions, countries and backgrounds to develop their skills and achieve their goals.

I am always interested in meeting new people, and learning new things!

Tardiness Policy:
Please note that if you are late for a session, and have not informed me prior to the time, I will remain in session for 1/3 of the total session time [10 minutes for a 30-minute demo lesson; 20 minutes for an hour-long lesson] after which I will terminate the lesson.

Should you miss an hour-long session, without notice, I will not issue a refund. However, if you cancel or inform me within six hours of the session, I will issue a 50% refund.
