Bedford based English Teacher with 35 years experience teaching English around the world

Methodology

My teaching is firmly based on the communicative approach and the idea that learning language successfully comes from having to communicate real meaning. When learners are involved in real communication, their natural strategies for language acquisition are used, and this will allow them to learn to use the language.

Experience

I am a university trained English teacher with two teaching diplomas: one for secondary teaching and one for teaching English as a foreign language. I have more than 35 years experience teaching in Australia, the UK, China, Singapore, Tunisia, Egypt and South Africa. I have been a school director on 3 occasions and also have trained teachers in China.
