About Me

English for travel - Business English - Conversational English - Pronunciation. I will help you gain confidence while increasing your fluency and precision. I have a University degree in English and a Certification to teach English to Foreign Learners (CTEFL). I prepare for every lesson so that you learn quickly and easily. If you wish, I will send homework, recordings for pronunciation, articles to read and discuss and more, if you wish to do work in between lessons.

I have over 12 years of teaching experience. Most of my teaching is private 1 to 1 or small groups of 2-6 students. I have taught English as a foreign language to all levels. I have taught both children and adult students and from countries all over the world.

I am a native English speaker from the United States with no regional accent. I grew up in Philadelphia and now live in Vermont and Italy.

I create a plan which incorporates the student’s interests and goals for learning English. I come prepared for each lesson to help students progress quickly, easily and with confidence in their English speaking. I make the learning positive, fun and rewarding.

Instructing students in English brings me great joy. Please contact me if you have a question. I would like to teach you English!

ITALIAN: Ciao a tutti. Sono Karen. Sono laureata in inglese (lingua e literatura) e anche la lingua italiana. Ho un certificato post laurea come docente d’inglese per stranieri. Ho più di 12 anni esperienza come insegnante.

Parlo italiano non cento per cento e conosco benissimo le difficoltà che nell'apprendimento che si possono incontrare, ma sono in grado di aiutarti per rendere il tuo apprendimento facile, veloce e piacevole.

Ho abitato un anno a Roma e un anno a Firenze. Mi piace molto l'italia e la gente italiana. Adesso, vivo nel Vermont negli stati uniti dove lavoro come insegnante privata d'inglese per studenti stranieri e studenti italiani on-line.

Vorrei essere la tua insegnante d'inglese su Verbling. Non esitare a contattarmi per qualsiasi domande. Ti aspetto.
