I have over 22 years' experience
teaching English - at university, in schools, as a tutor to small groups
and 1:1. I am accustomed to teaching adults and children at every
level from beginner to advanced.
With a degree and doctorate in English and two teaching diplomas,
I am uniquely well qualified to help you learn the English language.
I am highly knowledgeable of English
linguistics and the history of the English language. As such, I can help you
understand the theory as well as the practice of
English. I am also
an experienced teacher of English literature.
I hold Qualified Teacher Status in
England and am registered with Trinity College London to teach English to
speakers of other languages. I have been cleared by the UK Criminal Records
Bureau to teach young learners.
Besides teaching students from England and
overseas, I have experience in publications and online business.
My interests include walking, sailing,
jogging, cycling, reading, cinema and music. I have a
daughter, Kathryn, who has recently completed her PhD at Cambridge
University. My wife, Eva, speaks fluent French and Spanish. We have a small miniature Schnauzer, Xica, and a pet rabbit.
