My name is Alan and I live in Cornwall in Great Britain. I have been an English Teacher for nearly 20 Years. In that time I have worked in several Universities Colleges and Schools. I Have a wife and three lovely children. I have lived in some unusual places and have had some interesting adventures. If you want to know more you'll have to sign up for a lesson with me!
As well as teaching here, I also teach in a school in Cornwall. I also like writing and am working on a children's story at the moment. In my free time I enjoy music and cooking (Yes some English people really can cook!!)
I look forward to meeting some of you for a lesson soon!
BA English Literature - Lancaster University
CerTESOL International Training Network - Bournemouth
Teaching English in Universities, colleges and Schools since 1997 to a variety of students from beginner to Advanced.
Experience of preparing students for different exams including Cambridge suite and IELTS
Experience of teaching English for Academic purposes.
I have taught small and large groups and have lots of experience teaching one-to-one
I am also experienced in teaching children online and am keen to do this more.
I have a friendly communicative approach to teaching. My aim is to make the student feel comfortable and confident to use the language that they have (or have just learnt) and to build up vocabulary and grammar gradually in small natural steps. I encourage students to read stories (at their level) read or watch the news or watch videos which leads to fun engaging teaching. This way the language is remembered quickly and it is ready for the student to use in real life situations immediately. My students are consistently happy with my teaching. Why not give it a try!
Thanks for today.
