Whilst I'm new on Verbling, don't let this put you off. I've taught more than 8,000 hours to many happy students from different backgrounds some of whom I've had since 2007. Anyhow, my goal is to make your English much better in a quick, fun and easy way whatever your objective! I’ve been the main reason why students from countries such as France, Spain, Saudi Arabia, China, Peru, Ecuador or Switzerland have achieved and surpassed their English goals. If I’m still doing it after all these years I guess it means I’m a great teacher but that is for your to judge with a free trial! I grew up on an island in England and have lived in 7 countries. I have lived in Ecuador since 2011. I have a friendly and relaxed teaching style, yet it is also critical for my students to significantly improve in every class and have fun as much as possible! As I get to know you better I adapt the material more to your interests and your personality! I want you to enjoy and feel good about speaking English. I want you to have more confidence, more fluency, more precision, more vocabulary, improved pronunciation and more fun! I want to eliminate grammar as much as possible and I do this by concentrating and eliminating your common errors. I don't want to give you boring grammar classes. The goal is a light dosis of grammar. Afterall, you can study grammar in your own time. I guide what grammar you should study since you don't need to know everything about English grammar to attain a high level! Over the years I’ve taught around 8,000 hours (online and offline) to groups, to businesses, to the Official School of Languages in Spain, to adult professionals, to adolescents and civil servant English teachers in Spain! … hey I’ve even taken clients hiking for the day so they can spend the whole day speaking English. In addition, I’ve had students stay with me for a week in England so they can change their lives for ever in terms of their English ability. Furthermore, I actually personally visit some clients if I am in their country. These students typically invite me to dinner, let me stay at their house or show their city to me in exchange for free English. They even let me visit with my wife! I guess I must be doing something good for them to do this! I understand my income and my family depends on the quality of the classes I offer so my commitment is to be better than any teacher you’ve had before and always look to improve my service to you. One of the ways I do this is to ask the student if I am on the right track. Feedback, positive or negative is always welcomed! So try my classes for free! A SUMMARY OF MY SERVICE: - Free trial: Take a no obligation free trial so you can see for yourself how good I am. This is a chance to check out the method and explain your objectives and requirements e.g. improve fluency, confidence and eliminate common errors. - A unique service: I offer a unique and personalised teaching method to satisfy individual student requirements whether that be an English exam (Cambridge, Trinity, IELTS, TOEFL, EOI...), an interview in English, medical or business English or general English conversation. - Free responses to grammar queries outside of class: If you have grammar doubts or need a quick correction to a phrase for an email, you can send me a message on verbling when you want and I will respond in quick time! - Study little grammar: You don't like studying grammar? No problem! With me, you will study grammar lightly to ensure you enjoy the English classes. On the whole, I look at grammar only when errors are made during conversation. The amount of grammar studied will of course depend on your level. - I am trilingual: Being that I speak French and Spanish fluently, I know better than most what it takes to learn a language and the problems you may endure. I will help you overcome those issues in a way you have never experienced before. - I have a Masters in Translation: This is better than a TEFL certificate. This shows a deep linguistic capability and critical thinking ability. - Error correction method: My method is about correcting your common errors. A language is too complex to be studying all the grammar. For homework you will get a list of mistakes you have made in the class to be corrected for next time. I encourage you to converse as much as possible and be yourself. - Possibility of a personal visit: I often personally visit students if I am in their country. Then you would get to speak English for free over coffee or a meal for example. - I have a written an English grammar ebook: This book was designed to help Spanish speakers learn more effectively and more quickly. It is called 101 common errors Spaniards make when speaking English. I include excerpts of the grammar from this book in every class to ensure you are progressing every class with your grammar knowledge! - Business English: My first degree was a business degree and I have professional experience in banking, tourism, and the property industry.

Mark Davies MA PG (dip), BA (hons) RECOMMENDATIONS: "Tengo 42 años y he estado estudiando ingles toda mi vida, clases particulares, academia de inglés, cursos online, inmersión en UK, etc... Hace dos meses empecé las clases de inglés vía Skype con Mark. Al principio fue duro, en lugar de avanzar tenía la sensación de retroceder pero, sorprendentemente, varias semanas después la mejora empezó a ser impresionante. Los errores escritos y orales empezaron a disminuir, mi fluidez oral y escrita mejoró pero el mayor logro ha sido en la comprensión oral. Nuestras clases son fluidas y mi dificultad de entender a Mark es prácticamente 0. Además, el 99% de mi trabajo es en inglés. Hasta ahora tenía que esforzarme enormemente para poder seguir las conversaciones. Desde hace dos semanas mi nivel de comprensión ha aumentado considerablemente y me siento mucho más cómoda y relajada". "En resumen, estoy encantada con el sistema, en mi caso los resultados han sido visibles a muy corto plazo. Además, me gustaría destacar la comodidad que supone realizar las clases en casa, así como la flexibilidad de horario. Awesome!!!" Montse Sandoval, Barcelona, España "I am grateful for having done an English online course with Mark and I totally recommend him. Today my English is a lot more fluent and I have certainly noted a big difference in my communication when I am abroad. One of the main qualities of my native teacher was the personal focus and Mark definitely knew what we had to concentrate on so I could make big progress in little time" Maite Gonzalez, Madrid, Spain Please note, I don´t teach beginner levels (A1-A2). I do pre-intermediate or above (B1, B2, C1, C2).

I'm a professional English teacher. I have a TEFL qualification and I have been teaching since 1999. My career started in Japan where I was a conversational English teacher. Within a year I had become the headmaster of a private English school serving 400 students. In 2014 I returned to the UK where I established an online presence. In 2016 I became an MBA consultant preparing students for the rigorous admissions test and interview. If you are preparing for the VIVA interview, I can help with that too. I'm a published author with many years experience proofreading. I'd be happy to have a look at your essays. I am very patient, and you can ask me all the questions you want, as many times as you want, until you understand very well. Let me know what you need and how I can help you, and I will be here for you. I will do my best to help you achieve your goals of becoming fluent in English. I'll introduce a bit more information about me. I am British and I live in Bournemouth. I'm a B1 speaker of Japanese. After a career in the civil service in England, I travelled to New Zealand where I resided for 8 years. I attended university there and studied computer science at Massey University. In New Zealand and then moved into the private sector where I gained experience in the technology market and the insurance industry. In 1998, I resumed my education and took a CELTA course to pursue a dream of teaching English in Japan. After gaining some experience in a school in Saitama, I opened my own schools in Chiba and Tokyo and became a registered Japanese corporation. I employed 10 Japanese support staff and several foreign teachers. I ran those schools for 16 years and taught hundreds of students of all ages and levels. In my downtime, I like to watch movies and read books. I’m the author of the book Fluency Secrets and I’m writing some new books on English language study. I love mountain biking, running and swimming. One day I would like to do a triathlon. See you online!
My name is Karolina Thomoglou and I have been teaching English to both children and adults for over 17 years in various countries and organizations. With a great deal of blood, sweat and tears (!) I recently built my own online education company which had always been a dream and goal of mine. 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. Sincerely, Karolina Thomoglou PLEASE NOTE: Last minute and same day cancellations will NOT be refunded unless there is an emergency situation. If you book a lesson and believe you won't be able to make it- please unschedule or reschedule it as soon as possible. Teacher will wait up to 15 minutes before opening the hour to other students. There are no refunds for missed lessons- if you think you will not make it in time- please inform me so that I may reschedule our lesson.
