Presentation

I qualified as an English teacher at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK in 1997. I've worked non-stop ever since so that means I've taught over 20,000 hours of English to thousands of students. After qualifying, I worked in Warsaw, Poland from 1997 to 2007, teaching both in companies and in a language school. In 2007, I returned to the UK and worked in a language school for over 12 years, teaching students from all round the world: Europe, South America, South East Asia and the Middle East.

I qualified as an English teacher at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK in 1997. I've worked non-stop ever since so that means I've taught over 20,000 hours of English to thousands of students. After qualifying, I worked in Warsaw, Poland from 1997 to 2007, teaching both in companies and in a language school. In 2007, I returned to the UK and worked in a language school for over 12 years, teaching students from all round the world: Europe, South America, South East Asia and the Middle East. I've taught all levels of general and business English from beginner to advanced. I also specialise in exam English. Lots of teachers find exam English boring. I disagree. I like making it enjoyable by finding interesting subjects and using a wide range of different exercises. I specialise in four higher level Cambridge exams: B2 First (FCE), C1 Advanced (CAE), and two business English exams, BEC Higher and BEC Vantage. I also have huge experience of one of the most popular English exams in the world, namely IELTS. I can use existing materials but I have enough knowledge to make my own worksheets and PPTs to tailor my courses to the student's needs.
