Test prep? Yes! Pronunciation help? Of course! Grammar assistance?
Definitely! Accent reduction? Check! Meaningful conversations with vocabulary assistance? Certainly! An experienced teacher in both English as a subject at all learning levels and in ESOL learning? Without question! Business English? Unquestionably! Want to learn a new language rapidly and easily, in a fun and interesting way? Absolutely!! Hello and welcome to Verbling! My name is Patrick, and as a teacher with over 18 years of experience in assisting students of all ages and backgrounds to learn English in formal classrooms, online, in businesses, and for language test preparation, I look forward to being able to help you in your learning journey with lessons tailored to your individual needs, as we work together to improve your skills and confidence in using English.
Learning can be both challenging and interesting at the same time, so I personalize a lesson as much as possible. My style is based on patience and instructional scaffolding, just as I would do in my classes in a formal school, so learners of all abilities always have a chance to improve as we gradually and methodically develop your vocabulary, comprehension, pronunciation, and grammar skills, as well as your abilities in reading, writing, and listening. At the same time, classes move quickly once either a foundation for learning has been established or work has been mastered, using a mix of discussions and questions, listening and writing exercises, activities from various textbooks, pronunciation practice, vocabulary building work, and presentations of various types.
So, if you need help studying or a test or to succeed in your chosen field of work, would like to improve your abilities as a beginning student, or simply want to have a chat to maintain and improve your conversational abilities, I look forward to hearing from you soon!
