italki teacher since Feb 7, 2022
Hello everyone and welcome to my profile!
My name is Vasila, I come from Montenegro, where I have been teaching English and 2 other foreign languages for the last 8 years.
Me as a Teacher
I will try to do my best to fit your needs according to lesson duration, frequency and your devotion to the task. At the end of a lesson, you are very likely to be given homework to make sure you absorbed all the teaching material. Revising is absolutely the most important when it comes to languages.
My lessons & teaching style
When it comes to my teaching style, I speak slowly and intelligibly and this is the main reason I consider myself a good interlocutor, but a skilled and patient listener too.
It is my pleasure to see my students asking for help whenever they need it.

It is always a wonderful experience with Vasila. My lessons are tailored to my needs. When I began with her, I let her know how I would like to approach the lessons and she listened to me.
Vasila is easy to understand. She isn’t a native German speaker. That is fine by me. She understands the difficulty of learning another language.
There are times when something doesn’t translate as easily into English. She will let me know common and unusual translations.
I also get to learn about her culture because there may be differences between German / English / Serbian. That is interesting to me. This is a way to see how the cultures compare to each other.
She talks at a comfortable speed for me. We have a time of general talking and a time for the directed lesson. She will send me a list of new words we discussed so I can go back and study those words further.
I look forward to each lesson. I know I’ll walk away from each lesson learning more than just words.

Today I had my fourth lesson with Vasila, and I look forward to our 5th. Vasila is all of kind, caring and organised, however what I enjoy most about our lesson is the passion that she brings. Some teachers on Italki almost feel robotic, however it feels as though Vasila genuinely cares about our lesson, languages and my progress. The extra touch of personalisation - whether it be aspects of the lesson, or the lesson running overtime be a few minutes - makes me feel considered, engaged and as equally passionate. All of the above makes the process fun and fulfilling, all whilst at an extremely reasonable price.

Vasila is a great teacher, easy to communicate with, down to Earth. It is clear that she has a lot of experience as a teacher.
She selected material based on my goals and led the lesson in an accessible way, always explaining incomprehensible words and analyzes my mistakes.
Although we had only one lesson, I was really enjoying and plan to continue with it.
Can only recommend her!
