Hi! My name's Martin.
I'm British (from the south of England) and I am currently working as a freelance online tutor of English.
Aside from the United Kingdom, I have also lived in Germany. I addition to that, I have spent quite a lot of time in Japan. I love travelling and seeing new cultures - I have spent time in: The USA, Japan, Germany, Austria, Egypt, France, Spain, Belarus, The Czech Republic amongst others. I'm currently studying German and Business Management at Manchester University in the UK. I am also TEFL certified and love to teach!
- TEFL Certificate
- A levels in: German, Business Studies, IT
- Studying German and Business Management at The University of Manchester in the UK.
- 1 year of classroom experience (at a secondary school in Austria)
- 5 years of online teaching experience
- Over 4000 hours of online classes taught
- Over 300 students
I am certified to teach TEFL. Having tutored more than 300 students from every continent around the world with more than 1800 hours worth of online tutoring experience, you can be confident that your English needs will be met and that improvements will be seen in a very short amount of time.
I offer a variety of options, all designed to give you the best value and the most targeted service tailored to your requirements. Although every student is different and your individual needs can be discussed in a no-obligation free trial (only for new students) prior to commencing our sessions, examples of previous courses I have taught include:
- General English
- British Pronunciation/Intonation Training
- Business English
- Exam Preparation (usually IELTS)
I make use of a variety of different resources in my sessions including current news articles and other media, such as video clips, particularly if the content enriches the students' understanding of the cultures of English speaking countries.
An interactive, online whiteboard is also sometimes used to help clarify language points and to act as a tool for language related games and activities, which often prove popular among the younger of my students, although the grown-ups often appreciate this as well :).
For those students wanting more structured sessions in which language progress is usually faster, a variety of course books can be recommended.
