My name is Alex, and I have been teaching English since 2008 in a variety of environments. From private tutoring, to classrooms, as well as teaching over the Internet, I have had many wonderful experiences in my job. I love what I do, and I'm looking forward to sharing what I know with non-native English speakers from all around the world.


Currently, I am working in Montreal, Canada, but I was born in Poland. When I first moved to Canada at the age of seven, I didn't understand a single word of English. I remember the problems I had communicating with other kids, and the frustration I felt throughout my English learning experience. However, after some help from teachers and friends, and a lot of time and practice, I was able to learn the language that I now teach. The experience of being an immigrant has driven me to become a better English teacher, since I am familiar with the challenges and difficulties that new English speakers face. See you on the front page!

If you TRY, you can do anything! It’s always been my belief that you cannot put information in other people's heads. If you find a way to show them something, they can use their own intelligence to learn. This is my approach to teaching, trying to be both informative while allowing the students to find their own way of learning. I’ve spent the last 12 years teaching in various capacities.

I’ve taught martial arts to kids and developed a curriculum that was geared specifically to enhance their development.

I spent several years, first as a volunteer and then professionally, working with children suffering from autism and Asperger's -- trying to help them learn to deal with the world around them and to learn from their environment. Finally, it was while helping a child that I was asked to work at the Toronto School Board. While I was there, I helped out with kids who were learning English, and my love of teaching ESL began.

Teachers or other English schools who are interested in using these lessons, please go ahead and use them. That's what they're here for!

If you want to learn more about English grammar, vocabulary, and idioms, or if you have any other English questions or suggestions, feel free to go to the engVid forum and leave a message.

I hope you find the lessons fun, and valuable to helping you on your journey of English learning. Thanks for the support... what are you waiting for? Subscribe already!!!

Hi, I'm Ronnie! My first ever teaching English experience lasted 4 years in the beautiful remote region of Obihiro in Hokkaido, Japan! And now I find myself in Toronto, Canada teaching ESL and business English.

I'm a bit of a "nutter" - which makes learning from me very very exciting! I wish to only teach you REAL LIFE things that are useful, and that we use TODAY - no outdated old school grammar textbooks. You need to know how to survive in this fast-talking, hustle of an English world!

I have taught, coached, and edited for hundreds of non-native English users for 14 years, in four countries. Let me put this experience to work for you; subscribe to my channel and don't forget to comment here on engVid— remember, all questions are good ones if they help you improve.

These days, I'm back home in Toronto, Canada. I concentrate on helping people prepare for tests such as the IELTS, TOEFL, and SAT.

As you might have guessed by now, I live and love the English language.

And, yes, I know English can be difficult; but it is also a very beautiful language, and it can give you a lot of pleasure. It can also take you to places you’ve always wanted to go, such as to cities far away, or even just a few floors up, in the management offices of your company. English is a tool; learn to use it properly, and the whole world can become your playground.

Hi! My name is Gill, and I'm based in London, UK. I've been teaching for 25 years ­­ 21 years with the Open University, and for the past 8 years as a private tutor in EFL and related subjects.

I've been lucky to have had some inspirational English teachers in my life, and I love to pass my enthusiasm for the subject on to others. What I enjoy most about teaching EFL is meeting students from other countries and cultures, learning new things from them, tailoring my lessons to their particular needs, helping them improve their English, and seeing them progress in their lives and careers.

I discovered EngVid quite by chance, when looking for a lesson on rude words(!), and I liked the site so much that I recommended it to all my students. I've learnt (and am still learning) so much from watching the other tutors ­­ to find myself now appearing alongside them is thrilling beyond words.

Wishing you every success with your English studies, and please keep watching!

Learn English with me! Follow my videos on EngVid and subscribe to my YouTube channel to improve your vocabulary, grammar, and speaking skills. With practice, these lessons will help you to become a fluent speaker of English.

I live and teach in the exciting city of London. I worked as an actor for many years before teaching EFL, so I hope, at the very least, that I’ve managed to make my videos entertaining! Take the quiz on each lesson to test your understanding of what I teach.

After working in a top U.K. language school, I realised that students of English needed more practice of listening to real speakers of English. Studying grammar is fine, but without listening to native English speakers, your command over the language will never be very natural. I set up www.ExquisiteEnglish.com to give students the opportunity to hear how modern English speakers actually speak. On this site are a series of interviews on a wide range of interesting subjects: fashion, business, music, acting, pubs, new technology, and more. I’ve interviewed some very creative and entrepreneurial people from London, and after each interview you will find an accompanying video from me, in which I teach the key phrases and vocabulary for that topic.

Private tuition on Skype: If you want to speak great English, fast track your learning by booking some lessons with me through the Exquisite English website.

I hope you enjoy my EngVid classes, and that your study of English brings you much joy.

Hi, I'm Jade. I believe how you feel is even more important than what you know when speaking English. That is why I tell true stories from my experience coaching English, give advice and share tips to help you feel more motivated and confident when communicating in English. My videos are informal, personal and motivational. My objective is to make you feel inspired and excited about your English studies. I like to keep my lessons practical by teaching essential grammar alongside useful phrases.

I will always teach the real English that I hear spoken around me. Whenever there is a difference between what native speakers actually say and standard, grammatically correct English, I will tell you about it.

For me, learning a language goes far beyond doing grammar exercises and reading lists of words. To learn English successfully, you will also need to develop your communication skills. That is why in my lessons I also share insight and knowledge about becoming a successful communicator.

Hi, my name is Emma. Learning a different language can be hard, but it can also be a fun and rewarding experience. Although I am a native English speaker, I can relate to students because I had to learn French when I was younger. When I first started learning French, it was a real challenge, especially pronunciation. I was so embarrassed to speak and I would never put my hand up in class because I was scared of making mistakes. Finally, I had a great teacher who taught me that making mistakes and learning from them is the best way to learn a language. She was right!

I have been teaching for 3 years now. Before teaching ESL, I studied anthropology and archaeology at university. This background has helped me to understand some of the cultural differences of my students, including differences in how they may approach learning, writing, body language, and speaking.

I am TESOL-certified and have taught students from various backgrounds, ages, and levels. From immigrants to international students, private lessons to classrooms, my experiences have been varied and have allowed me to gain insight into the challenges that ESL students face.

Teaching is one of those great professions that allow you to be forever learning. While I teach students both French and English, they teach me about their cultures, their lives, and other ways to see the world. It is a privilege to teach and I am thankful for all of my students over the years who have shared their stories, interests, and dreams with me.
