I am originally from the UK (England). About 6 years I took time out from my successful management career to pursue my interests and lifelong dreams of travel and teaching English. Although I had done, both to some degree in the past I now wanted to teach and train full time whilst exploring new countries.
I have taught a wide array of students from young learners aged 4-5 at Level 1 (no exposure to English) all the way through to successful company directors with a solid grasp and understanding of English. Although I have taught all ages I specialise in professional adults (specifically business and financial English, although I also teach general and conversational English).
I find teaching, tutoring and training a rewarding and fulfilling career. Watching someone’s journey from a beginner to an advanced level and interacting with them is opportunity that few other jobs allow. I use a wide array of teaching techniques from TPR for juniors all the way through to instructional and task based for teenage or adult learners (and everything in between). The important thing is to make my lessons and activities relevant, engaging and interactive.
