italki teacher since Mar 15, 2019
My name is Teacher Mila! I have been teaching English, German, and Serbo-Croatian online and traveling/living in almost 40 countries since my teaching journey began. I currently hold a bachelor's degree in International Business Studies and a TESOL certificate. I have been working with thousands of students worldwide since 2013, teaching mainly English and German grammar as well as Business English.
I spent my early childhood moving from country to country and am trilingual as result.
There were many moments in which I could not understand the language spoken, so it is easy for me to relate and empathize with students who are learning a second or even a third language.
Me as a Teacher
My main focus is GRAMMAR and BUSINESS ENGLISH (topics listed below). I like to truly focus on helping the student to become more fluent in conversational and written English, German, or Serbo-Croatian by providing helpful tips and tricks to make grammar fun, easy, and comprehensible. I help with different language concepts to help you sound more natural, whether in an everyday or professional setting. Instead of using traditional grammar rules, I use my own little tips and tricks to make the class fun, easy, and effective. Some students have even called me the "grammar surgeon" :D
For CONVERSATION classes, I will type out your mistakes with corrections as you speak.

Я взял несколько уроков у Эмилы. Она замечательный преподаватель. С ней я расширяю словарный запас в моей профессиональной области (софтверная индустрия), повторяю грамматику. Я в восторге от того количества комментариев, которые она присылает мне после каждого урока. Очень полезно видеть свои ошибки и правильный вариант, как нужно было сказать. Эмила планирует наш следующий урок в зависимости от допущенных мною ошибок, что способствует их устранению. Планирую еще длительное время совершенствовать свой английский вместе с Эмилой

I loved our lesson, she is a language surgeon. instead of moving through chapters in textbooks Amila identified the areas I needed to improve and immediately directed an exercise to work on it. I totally recommend her classes.

Mila is a perfect fit for me to make a comeback to Italki after a long period of absence. She was professional yet friendly, patient, and flexible during our conversation. Thanks!
