Are you taking the IELTS exam? Do you need a score of 5 or above? Would you like to pass your exam with a teacher who specializes in IELTS and teaches ONLY for your particular exam? Look no further! I’m proud to say I’ve already helped lots of other students to pass the IELTS. Many of them are now studying for Master’s degrees, living in an English-speaking country or working in a better job because they passed their IELTS with me. Now I want to help YOU to become fluent and confident in English so that you can make life-changing connections in the English-speaking world. In your first lesson, we'll begin with a nice, relaxed conversation (I know you might be nervous!) where we’ll get to know each other a little. I’ll test your English level and ask you some questions designed to discover how much you know about the IELTS and what we will need to work on. Then it’s time for some feedback on your speaking. We’ll also talk long and short term goals and create a plan for you to achieve them. In your lessons, you will do most of the speaking. I will provide you with the essential feedback and corrections you need to improve. There will be clear explanations of vocabulary and grammar, with lots of examples and questions to get you using the new language. We’ll use official Cambridge materials, but also pictures, videos and articles from around the internet to make your classes more dynamic and engaging. I want you to enjoy learning English! “Robert helped me with preparation to IELTS exam a lot. My goal was 6.5, but I achieved 7.5 as a result.

Hello everyone, my name is Carl and I was born in Canada. I have a passion for teaching, and believe teaching like learning should be fun to get the most out of it. I focus on Pronunciation using Phonetics (what does it sound like). Most of my students struggle, because they are still using their native sounds while speaking English, which is why they usually have a strong accent. In my classes we keep it simple and go back to basics, discussing the sounds that each letter of the English Alphabet make, it’s Vowels and Consonants, and then moving on to Syllables and how that changes the Intonation of their speaking. Speaking is sound, and sound is physical, it is all about the parts of the mouth being in the correct position, so if the parts of your mouth are in the same position as mine, we will make the same sound. You don’t have to think about it, it just happens. There are 26 letters in the English Alphabet, but there are a minimum of between 39 and 48 sounds, depending on which accent you wish to use. It is much easier for you to memorize 48 sounds than it is to memorize 4,000 words! Once you do this, you will have a neutral accent, and then you can decide how you wish to change these to sound more American, English or Australian etc. So if you are determined to improve your English Language Skills, and you are looking for a teacher who believes that teaching and learning are about having fun while learning in order to produce the best results I hope you will contact me, and give me an opportunity to help you achieve your goals. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My name is Karolina and I have been teaching English to both children and adults for over 23 years in various countries and organizations. With a great deal of blood, sweat and tears and of course, love, I also built my own online English language training company which had always been a dream and goal of mine. Parallel to that, I joined Verbling 5 years ago and continue to love working here! My love and passion for the English language has been a constant in my life and has over the years developed into a deep interest to help as many language learners reach their learning goals as possible. As an ambassador’s child, I had the privilege and joy of visiting and living in a number of incredible countries and living the life of a nomad! Being born in Switzerland and moving to Canada at the age of 3, English quickly became my native language. My parents, realizing that English would not only be an asset but a necessity growing up in various countries, chose to enroll me in American International schools throughout my school education. I have rich and beautiful memories of growing up in South Africa, Greece and as a young adult moving to Germany and then later The Netherlands. Over the course of these years, my love of the English language only grew and deepened, and at a very young age I embarked on the path that would eventually lead me to where I am today: a teacher who truly loves what she does! As a teenager, I first fell in love with the language through poetry and literature, immersing myself in the beauty of words that I felt could almost magically create new worlds and capture feelings. This led me to my own experimentations with poetry and writing which to this very day are things I enjoy dearly and are very important to me. I was fascinated at how language allowed people to communicate with one another, brought people closer together and managed to bridge incredible gaps. As time went by and I began moving from country to country I also very quickly understood how valuable English was as a language and as a tool. Being the only common language everyone spoke in many of the countries I visited, I realized just how incredibly important it was to have a grasp on the language if I wanted to truly communicate with and understand others. Fast forward twenty years and this is more vital than ever before. In a world led by globalization and one where the international language of commerce is English, having the ability to speak English is truly no longer an asset but rather a necessity. As a young adult in Germany, I came to the realization that I wanted to turn my passion for the English language into a career. From that moment on, I invested my time and energy into attaining my goal of becoming an English teacher. I took my first step by gaining my CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) which then led me to my first teaching positions at language schools in Berlin. Over the years I taught both General and Business English in various companies including Wall Street School of English, Ebay Germany, Jaguar and Thyssenkrupp among others. I soon followed my certificate with an Advanced Diploma in Applied Linguistics and eventually a Masters in Education (Applied Linguistics), solidifying and expanding my knowledge on the foundations of the English language, how it developed over the years and how we can as teachers successfully help others learn the language. I continue to further educate myself at every opportunity, most recently completing the “Foundations of Virtual Instruction” course through the University of California. I realize that the face of education is rapidly changing and moving ever more towards online learning; more accessible and flexible learning. It is a trend that I believe will continue to develop over time, which is why I chose to focus on expanding my online teaching career. The other equally important reason for moving into online teaching was my interest in and desire to work with people from around the globe- what an incredible opportunity! Finally, I find myself after many years back in Greece realizing my long-term dream of starting my own business where I can share with others my knowledge of and passion for the English language. Nothing brings me more joy and fulfilment than helping others attain their language learning goals and supporting them through the often challenging but always exciting path of learning a new language. I always strive to make each students’ learning experience a unique one; one filled with support, patience and encouragement. I have had the fortune of working with truly wonderful individuals who have inspired me and continue to inspire me, and who remind me- though I never need reminding!-just why I became an English teacher. I hope that we will have the opportunity to meet and work together very soon.

I have been teaching for over ten years, and achieved my second TEFL qualification in 2007. I have since taken other courses and seminars to develop myself as a better ESL teacher I believe classes should be an enjoyable time for both teacher and student to enable the best learning environment. I keep my passion alive for teaching by constantly looking for new and fun material for classes. I am also a language learner, of Spanish, so I understand and empathise with doubts, fears and barriers in speaking in a second language. I believe its important to correct my students mistakes while also allowing fluency and confidence to grow I adapt each class to what the student wants and what they need in their language learning process. I am both patient and encouraging, and have a good sense of humor, all of which make classes a safe, comfortable and fun place to practice and improve English
