Hello, my name is Mark Freeman and I'm 46 years old and currently living in Thailand. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since July 2013. I can speak the following languages fluently: English, French, Thai. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am a 43 year old professional ESL British English teacher from London, UK.

I have been teaching successfully online for the past four years. Before teaching English, I was a successful business manager and worked as a production manager in a major healthcare company. I moved to SE Asia six years ago where I enjoy teaching English to local people as well as people from every other corner of the world over Skype.

I am friendly and well spoken and have already built up a good student base on other internet teaching sites. I welcome all types of students from beginner to advanced level and I am especially skilled in conversational and business English and I love to talk about scientific subjects if that's your thing. I look forward to meeting new students here on Verbal Planet and I am sure you will not be disappointed in my teaching style.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors (BSc. Hons) in Biochemistry as well as a TEFL certificate for teaching English as a second language.

In addition to my academic qualifications, I have spent over 20 years in commerce working in the pharmaceutical field where I have gained excellent experience and developed skills that are rarely found in a teacher.

Teaching Approach

With every lesson, I use a structured approach that combines the use of conversation, new vocabulary, phrase-building (including idioms), reading practice and comprehension.

I use professional learning material which caters for every level of student from beginner to advanced level and my existing students always comment on how quickly the time passes. In addition to using professional material, I always type everything that is discussed into the Skype chatbox so that the entire lesson transcript can be copied and pasted into a printable document that can be reviewed at your leisure.

A very professional teacher! Quickly understood my language problem and provided insightful advice, and I could feel that he is a very knowledgeable person just during our short talk.
