Hi everyone! My name is Anya. I`m a professional Russian teacher from Russia with more than 5 years experience.

Before I started teaching online I had worked at several language schools in my hometown. Currently, I only teach on Skype. Every day I work online with students of different ages from all over the world.

I use a wide variety of professional educational resources. My instruction is individualized, I work with each student at their own pace meeting their specific needs.

I'm very patient, and attentive in my approach. I don't let seemingly small things, like pronunciation issues, pass unnoticed. I can teach absolute beginners. I'm always exploring better and better techniques to help my students learn.

My teaching style is a combination speaking practice and books with various exercises. After each lesson my students receive homework (audio, texts, etc.). I teach different types of lessons including conversation \ targeted vocabulary practice, grammar, reading etc. I usually use Google Drive to share lesson materials.

Anna is an excellent teacher. Very knowledgable and kind. She gave me a free trial lesson due to a mixup in the payment methods. I look forward to the next lesson.

Tere! I am a language teacher with more than ten years of experience. I have worked as a lecturer of Estonian language and culture at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv in Ukraine, at the Tallinn University in Estonia and in numerous language schools. Currently, I am a freelance linguist based in Berlin and teach Estonian online.

It is important for me to introduce a language as a simple logical system that is easy to understand and use. As a teacher, I structure my classes and deliver knowledge in a clear and engaging way, combining theory with practice. Besides my endeavours to make my classes useful, I aspire to make them entertaining and fun, so that my students have a great time in the lesson. By teaching students from a wide range of learning techniques, I always try to provide a personal approach to each student and adapt to their needs, so that they are able to continuously improve their grammar and vocabulary.

I have now completed 20 lessons with Riina. I can confidently say her classes grow with you. While it is clear that she has a progression of vocabulary and grammar concepts, each lesson is still individualized to fit your interests and questions. Starting as a complete beginner with no knowledge of Estonian meant that at first, everything was new and very challenging. However, Riina presented in a way that was easy to understand. As I have gained more understanding, the lessons have added more vocabulary and grammar concepts in a way that makes sense. There is always time for questions at the beginning of each lesson in case I think of any between lessons. Additionally, there has also been more Estonian spoken each lesson, based on my progress. I recommend Riina to anyone looking for an Estonian teacher, and I am looking forward to continuing lessons with her.

Hello guys! I've been teaching English for three years now, it all all started when I moved to Italy to be with my loving partner and become a father. I can teach any level form beginner to advanced, with your language goal in mind. I prefer to personalize lessons to individual students and my strengths are exam preparation and conversational English for those wishing to speak like a native.
I have a degree in History and I've taught in both private and public schools as well as a private tutor. Don't hesitate to reach out for a chat so we can start this journey together.

Alexander is such a patient and dedicated teacher! We went through several useful expressions that enriched my toolbox of idiomatic linguistic structures. We also worked in detail on my pronunciation, which improved my confidence a lot while giving presentations at school! Everybody should start learning with Alexander right NOW!

Hello,

My name is Diana. I am a TESOL certified English, Estonian, and Russian online teacher with more than 4 years of professional and over 20 years of international voluntary teaching experience. During these years I taught professionally more than 3000 different students by helping them to achieve their goals and dreams. My students were from different age groups, levels and backgrounds.

In my classes you will feel at ease, have a friendly atmosphere and look forward to your next lessons. My aim is to make classes effective and my goal is to help you to :

*advance your communication skills
*boost your communication efficiency by improving your accent and speaking clarity
* achieve your desired language proficiency fast by using my effective and easy methods.

I tailor my teaching material according to your level and needs. As I strongly believe that no two students are alike and one teaching method that fits all is unfair and ineffective.

Looking forward to meeting you soon and emerging on a learning journey with you.

Hi,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on the decision to learn or improve a new language. Whether it is Estonian, English or Russian, beginner, advanced or Business language - you are in the right place.

My name is Martin and I am coming from a tiny country in the Northern Europe called Estonia. One of my biggest hobbies is teaching and educating others, that is why for the past 3 years I have been living and working in Istanbul while teaching English to different age groups: kindergarten, school, university as well as adults. I have had students from Beginners to Advanced as well as several businessmen and CEOs of international companies located in Istanbul. What is more, for the last 2 years I have been teaching Estonian, English and Russian online through Skype that gave me chance to meet people from all over the world and help them on their journey of learning foreign languages in a comfortable and enjoyable environment.

We are going to have a 20-30-minute trial lesson during which we can get to know each other, set expectations towards the lessons and schedule the timetable. The next step is simple - we start learning the language of your choice! As simple as it is :)

During the lessons we will focus on making you speak even with the limited vocabulary because speaking is the key to learning a new language quickly and in a fun way!

Cannot wait to receive your in-mail and help you on your journey to learn and speak a foreign language.

Martin

My name is Anna and I graduated in 2016 from Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona with a BA in English and Spanish Studies and a Master in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language in Universidad de Barcelona and Universidad Pompeu Fabra.

I worked as Spanish teacher in different languges schools and I also made collaboration as an Online Spanish teacher with Groningen University. In all my experiences as a teacher I have always tried to make students enjoy classes as much as possible so that their learning is positive.

In my classes I try to teach in a didactic way based on a more communicative approach although I always adapt to the needs of the students.

If you want to learn Spanish do not hesitate to sign up and we will have a good time;)

Hi there,

I am glad to meet you.

First of all, let me congratulate you on the decision to learn or improve a new language. In your case this is Bulgarian.

My country, Bulgaria, is a beautiful country with nice and hospitable people. It is an ancient land with a great history and rich culture. Having learned our language you will be able to get in touch freely with our good people and country.

I come from the town of Vidin, Bulgaria. I am a qualified English and Bulgarian teacher. I graduated back in 1972 from Sofia University with an MA in English Philology and Bulgarian Philology as a second subject. Since then I have spent most of my professional career teaching Bulgarian students.

First of all, we will have a 20-30-minute trial lesson during which we can get to know each other, set expectations towards the lessons and schedule the timetable. The next step is simple - we start learning the language of your choice!

Cannot wait to meet you and help you on your journey to learn Bulgarian.

CIAO a tutti!
My name is Sabrina, I am a qualified native teacher. I have a certificate (CEDILS, Università' Ca'Foscari - Venezia) to teach Italian as a second or foreign language - Italian L2/LS.
I am graduated with honors in Philosophy and I started teaching Italian language and culture in Toronto, Canada. I am currently teaching to foreign students in Genova (Italy).

I follow a communicative, student-centered approach. To me, it's really important that you feel comfortable and free to express yourself in Italian, no matter which is your level. Your needs and interests are the focus on which I will tailor the lessons: we will plan the lesson together to achieve your goals.

I am the co-founder of a Podcast for Italian learners.

So, if you'd like me to help you improve your Italian, please contact me and we can book a trial lesson together. I'd LOVE to help you achieve your GOALS!

It took me a long time to find my real passion in my (work) life. After studying in two universities, graduating in two bachelors, travelling the world and working abroad for several years I realized public education is where my heart lies. I went for the third time back to the university to get my teachers degree.

I have been a classroom teacher for 5 years in Dutch primary schools before I moved 4,5 years ago abroad to Colombia where I became specifically an English teacher. I am specialized in teaching in pre-, elementary, middle (secondary) and high school. I have been teaching in all different grades and all primary subjects in English and got specialised in Teaching English as a second language. Most schools where I have been working were inspired by the philosophy of 'Vygotsky'. 
A philosophy and methodology I also use in my private classes. Therefore they are dynamic and adapted to your personal needs.

Working in the Netherlands and Colombia in education and in several countries worldwide have allowed me to gain a variety of skill sets. These experiences also have provided me with the tools necessary for working abroad and online including adaptability, patience, dedication to my peer’s success, and respect for cultural and societal norms. Learning English as a second language from someone that is trained to teach the language like this and also once has learned the language herself as a second language (as my native language is Dutch), gives me a lot of benefits in comparison of learning the language from a native speaker.

Aside from this being my day to day job already for the past 10 years in Bilingual primary, middle and high schools, I started private classes to teach English as a second language in the afternoons. I am new to this platform as I haven't offered my services in the past through an official platform. With the recent changes worldwide I thought it is a good moment to focus more on online teaching and decided to dedicate all my time at the moment on online teaching. Therefore I have a wide availability Let me know which level you have and if there's anything specific you would like to focus on. I have experience in teaching all facets of the language.
