My name is Renata. I am a trained, certified, and experienced language teacher, intercultural and diversity coach, and communication skills trainer. I can call on many years of experience teaching ESL, TOEFL. IELTS, German, Test DaF, Zertifikat Deutsch, Italian, communication skills for business (public speaking, presentations, meetings, negotiations, interview skills) and intercultural communication skills (working in international teams or with clients abroad, cultural awareness, country specific training, and managing international, diverse, and virtual teams). For teambuilding activities, intercultural and diversity coaching, I use Global DISC. I am a licensed practitioner of ICQ Global DISC. In addition to that, I offer translation/ interpretation services (English-German/ German-English), and I also have a business background, specializing in Human Resources Training and Development, Public Relations, Communications, and Marketing. Finally, I also help clients with their resumes and cover letters, and I prepare them for their interviews. I provide a safe space for practicing and getting constructive feedback before facing a real situation in life.
I am bi-lingual English and German, and I have a multi-lingual/ multi-cultural background. I also speak Italian and French, and I have a basic understanding of Spanish. I have also studied some Portuguese, Russian, and Japanese. Being passionate about learning, training, and development, I can empathize with language and culture related issues and help my clients reach their goals. I have worked with large international corporations, smaller local businesses, language schools, mobility firms, executives, professionals, and private individuals.
Due to the pandemic, I meet clients only online using either Zoom or Skype. If you are not sure whether that is right for you, I offer a free 30-minute consultation to discuss details and let you try an online meeting. You can also find me online: Renata Urban Training, or contact me through WyzAnt for more details.

Very competent tutor with a versatile skillset
I have worked with Renata for several months now and I can really recommend her! We have had some English grammar lessons together, where we have talked about reported speech, passive voice, tenses, conditionals and phrasal verbs. Renata always prepares her lessons very thorough and provides highly useful teaching material. Besides grammar, we have used our lessons to prepare myself for job applications and interview processes. We have gone through job descriptions and have worked on my cover letter and resume. During this process, Renata has always been a competent and reliable tutor and has given me great advice. What can I say: I got a job! In preparation for my first job in the US, Renata and I have had some lessons about business idioms and presentation skills. Furthermore, we have spent some time for intercultural training about working in the US and cultural differences between Germany (which is my home country) and the US. Overall, I can highly recommend Renata! She has thought me important intercultural skills and with her training, I have felt much more confident and prepared during my application process. In addition, she is a true expert when it comes to linguistics.Anna, 29 lessons with Renata
Highly Recommended IELTS Tutor!
Renata helped me reach my goal in the IELTS speaking part and I improved my score from 7.5 to 8.5 in 5 lessons. She is organized, professional and was able to prioritize exactly what I needed to get a better score. I’m a native French speaker and the fact that she also speaks French really helped understanding and correcting some mistakes that I make, either with sentence structure or the use of “faux-amis”. Highly recommended!Orphee, 5 lessons with Renata
She taught accent and linking. She is knowledgeable and knows well the issue with ESL tutoring. She also knows well the difference between American accent and British Accent. Glad to work with her.Joe, 11 lessons with Renata
Easy going, thoughtful, sincere, and knowledgeable
Renata taught me how to recognize and control my fear of public speaking - breathing techniques. The knowledge she brings to the meeting goes beyond the public speaking I aim to achieve. She provided additional strategies I can use to enhance my presentation skills and express my thoughts.Rita, 17 lessons with Renata

I just started my lessons with her and I like her methods in teaching as she was very thorough & patient., She also gave me some pointers on how to conquer my fears during the exam day. I highly recommend Ms. Renata!Yelen Alexis, 9 lessons with Renata
Great working with 2E
Renata is doing a great job working with my 16 yr old 2E child who has hearing related issues and some other learning challenges. Renata teaches the work visually as well as verbally as has a slide presentation my child can refer to through out the week. Linden has only done two sessions this far and we plan on continuing with her to help Linden learn German and be prepared to start and stay on track for her college level German class.Laura, 30 lessons with Renata
Don't miss this opportunity to advance to the next level!
I have been studying two years, and honestly, I regret wasting my time on other websites and fraud individuals from Facebook. I don't know Renata before I read a review like this, and after I took my first lesson, I concluded that Renata is the best adviser who can guide me and you through your English test exam. She is patient and understanding. She knows her capability and can quickly identify your weaknesses.M., 8 lessons with Renata
Knowledgeable and highly recommended
Renata helped me over the course of a few months with both German and French. I am an advanced speaker of German and Renata helped with many of the nuances, subtleties and on many cases just general errors that I never learned correctly the first time. As a beginner in French, she was extremely helpful in pronunciation and the use of a number of verbs. Her knowledge of French culture was an added benefit. I would highly recommend Renata, no matter if you are a beginner or advanced language learner.Mike, 11 lessons with Renata
