Qualified and experiences ESL tutor who holds a passion for facilitating learning and aiding progression in both professional and personal lives.

Methodology

My name is Eddie, I have spend nearly half of my life in South East Asia. I have a fun, friendly and laid back teaching approach. I enjoy making jokes and think I am naturally good at helping students feel comfortable and at ease in lesson.

I specialise in tailoring my lessons to the needs of the student, and try to do so by usually using the classic technique of teaching the topic/target language - practising this through some controlled practices and then using the target language which has been taught and practised in a freer practice using realistic situations - during this I will note down any errors which we will correct together and practice further if needed.
I can teach the technicalities of English grammar, or we can practice through normal conversation and error correction. For more advanced students I enjoy teaching using case studies, listening to audio tapes, reading and analysing texts/articles/news.


Experience


I worked with a globally recognised language school for over a year teaching people between the ages of 16 and 80!
I have also worked at a number of other smaller/more local languages schools designing syllabuses and managing small teams of teachers, as well as teaching classes throughout.
I still keep in touch with many of my old students who I now consider friends of mine. They still come to me for help with English and I am still delighted to help them.

I am CELTA qualified and spend four years at university studying outdoor adventure coaching.
