Highly experienced British Council teacher with English B.A from UCL, CELTA and TYLEC teaches English, Literature, EFL, Composition, Critical Thinking, IELTS and more in person or via Skype.

Methodology

Having completed both a CELTA and TYLEC (Trinity College Young Learners Extension Certificate), I am well versed in teaching methodologies.

By using interactive exercises, engaging closely with students, monitoring and providing operating adequate support and operating within the students Zone of Proximal Development, I believe students of any level can rapidly gain skills in any subject under my tutelage.

I also emphasise a warm approach to students, creating a bond of trust that cements learning as part of a developing relationship.

Experience

I have been teaching for five years at the British Council in Asia and at several International schools. I also conducted private and small group lessons during this time.

I have several enthusiastic students who can attest to my teaching ability.

I am also a published journalist and freelance writer.

I have known Tom for over ten years and have only heard good things.
He is super-bright, an agile thinker, reflective yet energising at the same time, and passionate about English. If you are a high-flyer, Tom will stretch you. If you need empathetic support, he’s full of caring compassion too.
Tom’s experience overseas gives him a deep understanding of what non-native speakers find challenging. He was very highly thought-of in his posts overseas and brings that reputation with him when teaching English Language and Literature.
