About Me

I have over 20 years of experience teaching English;
two language-teaching Master's degrees;
certified US high school English teacher.

I teach all levels, from very beginner to advanced, lessons are designed for your level and goals, and I give continuous feedback.
I teach TOEFL and other test prep, pronunciation, business English, etc. I'm fluent in French, Italian, Spanish, and intermediate in German. I have taught in Paraguay, Germany, Italy, and throughout the USA. I advise on CV/resume editing, interview prep, speech prep, cultural knowledge, etc.

Most of my students come from recommendations of other students of mine.

This is what my students say about my teaching:

"Tana is the by far best teacher I found on Verbling. I've found so many good teachers here, but Tana beats them all. Super competent, super engaged, with a very strong culture about language and a true passion for teaching. A+++"

Let's go!
