Instructor Biography

Annamária Ibos, English grammar tutor for ESL students

I am Annamária Ibos and I have been teaching English for more than 10 years. As a non-native speaker I know how hard it is to understand and use English grammar. I truly believe that if someone loves a language they can learn it and speak it correctly. The key is to find the best way for learning a language to make it fun and efficient.

 I have BA degree in the field of English philology and  C2/Proficiency English Language certificate so I have a deeper look into English grammar that enables me to provide a better understanding for you, too.

My students are mainly those people who would like to master English and would like to be capable of using it on a daily basis. My main profile is teaching English grammar. With more than 10 years experience in this field I have developed such explanations of English grammar that is easy to understand and use, moreover saves time. At least my students have been telling me that. :) Great number of my students have successfully passed different language exams such as TELC, IELTS, Ecl...etc.

So I hope you will enjoy my videos and learn what you have not understood yet.
