원어민 쌤 프로필

Business English - Academic English - Conversational English - English for Travel - Pronunciation. I will help you gain confidence while increasing your fluency and precision.

I create a plan for each student according to the student’s interests and goals for improvement. I come prepared for each lesson to help students progress quickly, easily, and with confidence.

I really enjoy teaching English as a foreign language and seeing students progress and reach their goals. For the past four years, I have dedicated myself full-time to this work. I bring a depth of experience:
BA in English and BA in Italian;
TOEFL & Masters courses;
thousands of hours of private, in-person, and online tutoring; and
26 years of owning/working part-time in business.

Outside of teaching I have two children: my son is studying Business and Entrepreneurship at University and my daughter is pursuing a Masters in Occupational Therapy. I live and work half the year from the USA and half from Rome, Italy. I love animals and had a small family farm for 15 years. I enjoy being active - hiking, yoga, skiing, cross-country skiing, and some tennis and golf. I truly enjoy people and, in particular, students who are motivated to improve their English.

Instructing students in English and seeing them reach their goals brings me great joy. Please contact me if you have any questions. I would like to teach you English!

ITALIAN: Ciao a tutti. Sono Karen. Sono laureata in inglese e anche la lingua italiana. Ho un certificato post laurea come docente d’inglese per stranieri. Ho più di 13 anni esperienza come insegnante.

Parlo italiano non cento per cento e conosco benissimo le difficoltà che nell'apprendimento che si possono incontrare, ma sono in grado di aiutarti per rendere il tuo apprendimento facile, veloce e piacevole.

Ho abitato un anno a Roma e un anno a Firenze. Mi piace molto l'italia e la gente italiana. Adesso, vivo nel Vermont negli stati uniti e anche a Roma sei mesi del anno. Lavoro come insegnante privata d'inglese per studenti stranieri e studenti italiani on-line.

Vorrei essere la tua insegnante d'inglese su Verbling. Non esitare a contattarmi per qualsiasi domande. Ti aspetto.
