- Anna LargeCEO and Teacher
I am very happy to see you here. If you are here, it means you are ready to learn a foreign language. My name is Anna Large and I am the owner of Expert-teacher.com. I am an English and Russian teacher and extremely interested in learning different languages. I have learnt German, French, Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese, Hindi, Chinese, Georgian and other languages just to get an idea about the people that I have met along the way and be able to understand them better. Creating this website comes from the idea that the more we know about others’ native language, the more we grow to understand their culture, so become more tolerant. I believe that we can be better people by constantly learning. Hence, the idea of this website came naturally as a result of continuous personal development and thirst for knowledge. I will be very happy to organise your 20-30 minute interview on Skype with the teachers I have selected specially for you. My teachers are not only experienced but also have charisma. They have knowledge of other subjects and a keen interest in the language they teach as well sharing their enthusiasm of learning a language with you. They are great communicators, very creative, approachable and will take you on a fascinating learning journey.

What our students say…
I’ve had the pleasure of being taught Mandarin Chinese by Matt Wan and I can tell you that he is a well-rounded person. First, I love the way he teaches only useful language and can target it to your goals. Secondly, he is really good at drawing so I get illustrations for any vocabulary he chooses to teach me. This makes learning so much more fun. I have seen him teach children as well and I don’t know how he has all this patience to deal with little kids as young as 3. Also, Matt can adjust himself so easily to the needs of the students and is brilliant at creating customised materials for his lessons. I would highly recommend you get in touch with him for a Skype lesson, unless you are based in Hertfordshire.
“Anna is one of the best lecturers I had the pleasure to meet. She is very ambitious, a positive person and very motivated about her job and she tries to pass the knowledge she has to her students.”
Giorgos from Cyprus
“Honestly, my teacher Anna is one of those amazing teachers that I’ve ever met. I can describe her with five adjectives: experienced, witty, generous, subjective and open-minded.”
Khaled, a Pharmacy student from Libya
“I would like to thank Anna Large for teaching me a higher level of skills, which are paraphrasing, academic speaking and academic writing. She has taught me for 2 months and delivered the information very clearly. Simply speaking, she is the best teacher I have ever come across in my life.”
Moataz Sawwan, a student from Jordan
“Anna is very kind and cares about her students. She is available to help and advise students inside or outside classroom at any time you need help. Her class always has a good atmosphere and the content is memorable. To sum up, I can say that she is the teacher I admire because I have never had such an experienced teacher before and I will try to be a teacher like her in the future.”
Sirwan, a student from Kurdistan
“I’ve never attended a class like your class, Anna. It is a really informative and enjoyable class!”
Omar, MA in Pharmacy
“I am from Libya and going to do an MA in Pharmacy. I wanted to thank Anna who was teaching me academic speaking skills. Your classes were fun, beneficial as well as unforgettable.”
Nabil from Libya
