Patient and kind, certified TEFL teacher with over 5 years of teaching experience. My students would describe me as very friendly, patient, and fun. I can't stand boring conversations and really strive to make each lesson interesting and memorable. I spent three years teaching English in private language schools in Italy but really prefer my experience with online lessons. My favorite thing about teaching English as a foreign language is that I get to speak to people from all over the world and learn about their cultures while watching them improve and gain confidence in their English speaking skills. Every student has different needs and different learning styles so I try my best to customize each lesson to what works best for each individual student.

I have a Slovakian friend who often asked me to correct her grammar and pronunciation and to help her with her writing so it would flow more like that of a native speaker. It was truly enjoyable! know I can help you with your language and writing skills as well. I gravitate towards others from different cultures and we usually end up talking about language. They see my interest in them and they'll often ask for help with their English language questions which I love to answer. Between my skills and my interest, I'm confident in my abilities to help a learner achieve a similar understanding based on the level they are at. It'll be as rewarding for me as I hope it will be for you!

Great with conversation practice for English and Filipino! I am a very topical person when it comes to teaching. I like to teach with certain themes in mind (i.e. food, weather, sports, etc.) in order to compartmentalize the lesson and make it easier for the student to digest the lesson. I also like giving time for the student to describe his/her day to me in English in order for me to correctly diagnose their level of proficiency and for them to practice speaking in English. I also love giving vocabulary words for each lesson, as well as to review those for the next lesson. If the student comes in late in class within 30 minutes of the time, we are still ending class at the time specified in the Lesson Detail. You're responsible to be on time.

My teaching style is student-oriented and aims to minimise Teacher Talk Time (TTT) and avoid a helicopter-style of leadership. One of my core beliefs even before this platform when teaching someone is to treat them as an individual and thus getting to the core of the issue they are facing and moving on from there. I am a good listener, and that is one fundamental aspect of being a good teacher. Teaching means putting myself in a student's shoes and how badly they want to learn English. Constructive Criticism and good error-correcting are good forms of giving someone feedback so they do not lose confidence in themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions about English teachers

The first step for having an online English course is to find a trusted teacher. Watch teacher introduction videos and read teacher profile information as well as student reviews.

Then, choose a favorite one. Once you confirm your English tutor, you can check his or her calendar. Schedule your lesson for a time that suits you. If you can't attend the lesson, please cancel it at least 24 hours in advance and reschedule it.

If your teacher confirms your lesson request, you can start your English learning journey. Connect with your teacher via Zoom, Skype, italki Classroom, or other tools on a desktop or mobile device.

Have 1-on-1 English lessons with your private tutor. It's a good way to learn English from a native English speaker or international English teacher. Your teacher will teach you according to your learning goals.

There are two types of teachers in italki, professional teachers and community teachers. Both of them are qualified and loved by their students.

Feel free to book English lessons with your private tutor. Just check the calendar with your teacher and book lessons from half hour, 45 minutes, to 1 hour.

An online English teacher or tutor is a person who gets in touch with you online and teaches you the English language no matter where you are. Taking lessons with an online English teacher saves your commute time, helps you learn English in a relaxed state, and allows you to learn at home.

But what is the difference between a classroom teacher and an online tutor? A classroom teacher is a professional who teaches as per the prescribed curriculum to some students in a rigid environment. An online English tutor is a person who pays close attention to you and your needs and gives you in-depth knowledge of the English language.

The advantages of having an online English tutor are:

  • * Your personal English trainer will provide you with flexible lessons and your learning process will be more relaxed.
  • * A 1-on-1 English tutor will help you learn quickly.
  • * With a private English teacher or tutor, you can learn at your own pace and in comfort.
  • * With a private English teacher, you can track your progress anytime and make your learning schedule according to your budget.
  • * Online English teachers can help you immediately with any problems you have in learning English.
  • * A private English teacher or tutor can motivate and help you build confidence in English speaking.

Nowadays, many websites provide English courses with online teachers like italki. But finding the right English tutor becomes more difficult among so many options. Why do I recommend using italki to find your English teacher? Check out the benefits of hiring an online English instructor on the italki app or website:

  • * Your italki English teacher can tailor a language learning plan to suit your language level and learning preferences.
  • * The English language is quite technical. Its pronunciation, phonetics, and grammar are complex to understand. You may need special attention from your English teacher to help you learn them better. Your online English teacher will focus on your needs and help you resolve any doubts.
  • * Taking lessons with an online English tutor on italki is more affordable than many other learning platforms.
  • * Flexible class scheduling at any time and any place convenient for you.
  • * Affordable online lessons that are up to 30% cheaper than some in-person teachers.
  • * Personalized classes: Tailor the learning plan to your needs varying from learning conversation or grammar, preparing for certification, doing business, etc.
  • * Various choices from certified teachers to community tutors: you can choose a professional teacher to help you prepare for a certification or community tutors to practice casually.
  • * 3 trial lessons with discounted prices to try out.
  • * You can practice with our free community by asking questions or writing a Notebook Entry to get feedback on your grammar, spelling, etc.
  • * Pay per lesson: You can top up your italki Wallet and pay per lesson without any subscription, booking fees, or commitment.
  • * Free to join Language Challenge: You can participate in Language Challenge. Set your goals, keep yourself motivated, and win rewards for learning.
  • * Refer a friend bonus: You and your friend will get a 10-dollar bonus, after your referred friend purchases 20 dollars or more Credits on italki.

Professional online English teachers are experienced people who teach you basic English knowledge, such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and conversation. They help you improve your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Moreover, you can talk about English literature, cultures, or any other topics that interest you in their lessons. They will develop a customized learning plan for you based on your different language abilities.

After booking an English lesson with italki, you can talk about your current learning needs with your teacher before or during your first lesson. Let them know your language level and advice you on the best lesson plan that suits your language abilities.

The cost of learning with online English teachers on the italki app varies depending on the factors such as the lesson duration and the teacher’s experience.

For example, taking a lesson with an experienced English teacher will cost you about $12 to $15, whereas taking a class with an English community tutor will cost you around $9 to $14. The average price of a 60-minute English online lesson on the italki app is only $10!
