Experienced software/energy consultant in Cambridgeshire, UK offering English lessons to Asian kids!

Methodology

I like teaching kids as its more rewarding and fun, but I have many years experience training professional (adults) too. I'm pretty methodical, as I like some structure but as a consultant by trade use images and visuals (and games, maybe even songs for kids!)

Experience

By trade I'm an energy and software consultant (AI!) of 18 years, but I did teach English to children many years ago in Korea and had an amazing time. That year was so memorable I enrolled for Chinese and Japanese nightclasses when I cam back to the UK. Ten years later I met my Chinese wife while travelling on business in Germany and we now have a 5 year son, half Chinese, half Scottish.
