I have known Derek as a colleague for thirteen years, and have found him to be a reliable and conscientious teacher.
I have also found Derek to be an intelligent individual, who is willing to take the lead in situations when required. His good judgement has been important on several occasions as we have worked together.
In short, I would recommend Derek as a trustworthy person who can be relied upon when things get difficult, and he will prove to be a valued tutor and to those fortunate to have him as their tutor. Please feel free to contact me regarding this recommendation if required.

He is the great tutor in my English pre-sessional course. His teaching is amazing.

Derek's Experience

My most recent experience was tutoring for a British university on their campus in China where I was responsible for improving the academic skills and IELTS scores necessary for my students’ future studies in England. I was also heavily involved in planning and developing course material for use in ongoing and future courses.

I have also worked on the pre sessional course at a British University every summer for the past eight years and have developed an excellent understanding of the needs and support international students require for their studies in the UK.

Prior to this I was Director of Studies at a language school in Malta where I wrote and was involved in the marketing of various language courses.
