About Me

Hi, my name is Ivan and welcome to my Verbling classroom.

I am a native English speaker from Australia and have been a Verbling teacher since 2020. Prior to that, I worked as a teacher’s assistant and English tutor for school-aged kids.

I enjoy working with young people and have been a volunteer in several different programs as well as social groups, I often work with teenagers and adults who need assistance preparing for English tests, educational studies and any other assistance they may need with English.

I was born in Australia but moved to Bosnia with my family as a young child but English is still very much my native language.

I am currently studying English language and literature at university, pursuing my dream to teach English at the ultimate level.

My lessons are fun, informative and I have plenty of different materials that we can work with. I am also happy to incorporate any materials my students have, especially if it will help them with their own studies.

As a student learning a different language, I understand the challenges and this has motivated me to further my studies to become a fully qualified English teacher.

I look forward to meeting new students and am happy to work with young teens and those that are young at heart.

Please send me a message and say HELLO and please do not hesitate to reach out and ask me any questions you may have.
I hope to be chatting with you soon.

Note: Verbling lessons may only be attended by those 13 years of age and older, with minors (13-17) requiring prior parental permission.
