Originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, I left the country in 1994 to join an internship program in the USA, and have been living abroad ever since. Three years in the US, followed by 4 years in South Korea, where I graduated from the Keimyung University. Continuing on: lived and worked in Dubai, Australia, France and Thailand. I speak 5 languages and teach 2.

I have been teaching since my Uni years in Korea, going on twenty years now. I love my job, my students, the challenges, the joy. I know what my students are facing face along the way, their concerns and setbacks - I've been there. I am a very capable and efficient teacher, confident in getting the best results.

I am fun and resourceful, love to challenge myself and my student, captivate their interest and make sure they accomplish the highest possible goals.

This was an amazing experience! Yulia is the best teacher I have ever met, very knowledgable and personable. Within our first session I was able to get an understanding of a few really difficult English language rules, which I struggled with for many years. She is a great coach as well, I received a great confidence and motivation boost. Once my personal and professional issues get resolved, I am going for the Intensive Course with Yulia. Thank you!

I hold a MA in Language Didactics and New Technologies in Language Communication. I am native Greek speaker and also I speak fluently in English. I also know French in intermidiate level and I am basic user of Russian language.

I am teaching Greek language as a foreign language and also I'm teaching ancient Greek language. I have knowledge and expertise in intercultural education. I received further education on multilingual and multicultural subjects, as well as practice on how to influence students to improve their perspectives through activities or suitable educational material.

My interest for continuing education and self-training led me to attend online courses on translation and translation tools. Through this year I gained knowledge about this skill and I am always trying to improve my translation skills.

Hello everybody!

My name is Elena! I have been teaching French to kids, teens, adults for 12 years.

I began my career in 2008 working in an AUF member university and I’ve spend 6 years teaching general and professional French language skills to students and preparing them for TEF, TCF, DELF/DALF examinations. Later I’ve worked in several language schools. Now I work in Alliance Française and as a private tutor. I also work as a French - Russian interpreter. I also teach Russian to english speaking and french speaking people.

In 2017 I started teaching online and I know how to make learning fun, creative end efficient to people of all ages and needs. In my opinion, any study should be a pleasure, so I do my best to make my students enjoy the lessons and progress in speaking, reading, writing, listening and grammar at the same time.

Contact me to book a trial lesson and for any question you may have!

My way of teaching is based on my over 30 years of experience. After spending many years providing my students with a lot of grammar rules I decided to start providing them with the necessary tools that support them in breaking down both linguistic and psychological barriers, improving their confidence, building the correct communication code of the language thus lowering frustration and increasing motivation.

My students are happy with such method as they enjoy each and every lesson and never feel under pressure.

I want English to be learnt naturally with the right commitment but with no frustration.

I love my job and I am totally committed to what I do, while continuously working on new material and on finding the best way to keep my students engaged.

Good day there...

My name is Teresa (Teacher Tess), and I live in South Africa

I manage an afterschool care centre called “The Lighthouse”
I care for 3 – 6 year old's in the afternoons
Having taught children of various ages over the years before this, I have decided that this is my favourite age group. They are so loving and not afraid to show how they feel.
I love having fun playing games with them, doing crafts and telling stories.
I have built meaningful relationships with many of them. I look forward to seeing them each day as they run up to say hello and give me a big hug.
I also love to see their smiling faces at the end of the day when they go home because then I know I’ve done a good job in keeping them happy.

I have spent most of my career studying education and tutoring children.
I volunteered in High school with SMILE Education to teach English to African pupils.
I worked for a number of years tutoring maths for KUMON Education. I tutored maths privately.
I worked for a time teaching high school maths.
So I have worked with many many children over the years.

My qualifications specific to the requirements of this position would be my National Certificate in Early Childhood Development as well as my Certificate in the Principles of Developmental Psychology, both of which I obtained through INTEC College.
I have also recently completed a 168 hour TEFL qualification.

My style of teaching is one where I try to keep the students motivated, to be sensitive to their needs and most importantly to observe and listen to them carefully to make sure they understand.

Methods i use include:
TPR (Total Physical Response) - this is using a lot of body language and gestures to emphasize meaning.
Colourful Props - to keep the child's attention.
Reward systems - to motivate participation.
Games and songs - to make the lesson fun

I absolutely love what I do and would love to meet you and embark on this exciting journey through the English language with your treasured child.

I am a BA in Education graduate, with vast experience in primary, secondary and higher education levels, as well as in other activities related to education. I believe I have a diverse background which makes me a very adaptable teacher and with a lot to offer.
Most of my experience is in high school ,in adult education and university students. I have been able to develop a good relationship with my students, which has translated to better communication and an altogether more rounded experience for them and myself. My lesson planning has always aimed to reflect my students’ needs and interest applied into useful communicative language structures that they can actually use in their lives.
In my last years as a teacher, I have focused on preparing test-takers for the TOEFL. It has been a completely different experience from what I have had before, but I have helped my students accomplish the desired scores in the proposed time.
I believe in making the learning of a new language something exciting and not frightening at all, but challenging and gratifying instead. My material is dynamic and keeps my students engaged and continuesly developing their communiation skills.
I am flexible with my students' time and shcedule; naturally, it is open for deliberation if needed. I look forward to helping you get to the desired goals you set foryourself!

I am Michelle Reece-Herbert from the Island of Barbados. My profession as an Educator is of importance to me as I always try to facilitate the learning needs of students. It is in this context, that I have studied and obtained my degrees/certificates in Spanish with Management BA, CELTA, Classroom Management, Technology & Learning Design MA.
Over the years, I have taught on various ESL/TESOL programmes (blended), and the students range from teens - adults (A1 - C2) from regional and International countries. Additionally, I taught at a few Universities in Colombia, South America as a Language Instructor.

As a Language Educator, I consider myself to possess many traits relevant to such a profession. Among them:- a good listener, having patience when dealing with challenges within the teaching & learning environment, dedicated and an engaging personality.

My approach to the teaching and learning environment is based on the Communicative & Integrative methods. In this regard, students are encourage to utilize their prior/background knowledge and experiences to support new knowledge being received. Therefore, my sessions are tailor-made for the student's needs via the use of authentic & creative materials (eg. photographs, news clips, songs, videos, role-plays, discussions, interactive activities etc.) to reflect real life contexts.

I am a certified TEFL English teacher. I am flexible and I teach based on your learning style. For instance, if you learn best with visuals I will incoporate vidoes and picyures into our lessons. My lesson plans focus on grammar, writing, and pronunciation. Learning a new language is fun and I make my lessons fun and innovative.

In the last few years, I have been studying and working in different European countries. So, I understand the importance of knowing the language of the country where you are living and, at the same time, the difficulties that this entails. For this reason, I would like to focus my classes on improving your conversation skills so that you feel that each day you can unfold with more confidence.

I enjoy teaching at any level from absolute beginners to more advanced students. I had complete a certification to teach Spanish and I have more than 2000 lessons done with all sorts of students. I am a patient and organized teacher. I will adapt my lessons to help you to achieve your goals. We will work together step by step to improve your Spanish in a flexible and relaxing way.

After my experience studying English, Italian, French, and Dutch, for me, the most important is to be able to communicate in the language that you are studying. For this reason, I will put the focus of my classes on improving your conversation skills. We can talk about any topic that you are interested in. Moreover, if you want to improve your writing skills, prepare for the DELE exam or improve your grammar, I will guide you step by step to achieve your goals.

Hi, name is Laura. I come from a small town near Manchester, UK, though I now live in Bulgaria with my husband and two small children. I am an avid reader of fiction and am also particularly interested in current affairs, politics, psychology and education. I teach English full time and thoroughly enjoy my work. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring the Bulgarian countryside, cooking and learning Bulgarian.

Me as a Teacher
I am a qualified teacher with a BSc in Applied Psychology. I have been teaching English for 15 years and have worked with all ages and abilities. My lessons are very communicative and with a strong focus on speaking. I really enjoy getting to know my students and I try to incorporate their hobbies and interests into our lessons.
For the majority of my teaching career I have worked with teenagers and young adults. I have taught hundreds of young people and have found that they enjoy and respond well to my relaxed teaching approach. I am particularly well-suited to helping young people progress and have confidence in their ability.

My Lessons & Teaching Style
My teaching style is open and friendly. I encourage students to speak as much as possible and guide them through their use of English. All of my lessons are tailor-made according to the needs of my students. Whether it is conversation practice, grammar study or exam preparation (specifically KET/PET/FCE), I can help.

Each of my lessons is designed with clear learning objectives and I use a variety of learning methods/materials to make my lessons interesting and to reinforce what we have covered.
I believe learning should be fun and rewarding and students should be able to feel their own personal progress after each lesson. I genuinely care about the development every one of my students.

I am very good with beginners and intermediate students. I help with pronunciation, learning new vocabulary and grammar. I always offer corrections and offer endless speaking opportunities.

I enjoy teaching and more than anything I enjoy teaching English, but as much as I teach I am always looking for an opportunity to learn. I allow myself to learn something from my students as many times as they are willing to teach. Together with my students, we create an atmosphere of on-going conversation around our class topic.

I have a Bachelor of English degree, as well as a 120-HOUR TEFL Certificate. I am mostly fluent in English, as it has the language medium throughout my entire life and school career.

I have a total of 9 years of experience, teaching a variety of subjects, especially Business and English to all age groups. I have taught in the classroom setting as well as online. I have been teaching English as a second language online for over a year now.
I use creative teaching methods, through case studies and simulated scenarios that are related to everyday life activities. Using a blend of visual, auditory and kinesthetic methods, I ensure that students with different learning needs are catered for. I also use lots of realia and TPR for my younger students. Assignments and homework are always related to the material covered in class to ensure continued learning and practice.
Feel free to join me for a fun and engaging class with lots of smiles! :)
