Friendly, qualified and experienced teacher of English (Lang and Lit) and TEFL at all levels.

Methodology

I always discuss with my students what exactly they need and prepare accordingly. They usually wish to work towards the Cambridge suite of exams (from KET to CAE and IELTS).
I offer friendly, structured lessons covering all aspects of English (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) and reinforced with regular homework exercises and practice exam papers.
My classes are home-based with the use of all media including computers, whiteboard, film and podcasts as well as more traditional methods of class teaching.

Background

I am semi-retired and have been teaching EFL from my city centre home for the past two years. My last two students (both 1 to 1 classes) were Spanish professionals working in the city. They wanted to achieve a 7.5 score at IELTS and both students achieved this grade in the actual exam. Prior to that I taught various nationalities including Arabs, Chinese, Polish etc. at all levels.
