Hello, my name is Spencer Russ and I'm 118 years old and currently living in United Kingdom. I am a native English speaker and teach English.

I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

Hi, my name is Spencer, and I have been teaching English around the world for over four years. I'm from the United States, but living in the UK at the moment.

I'm interested in meeting new people and learning about different languages and cultures. I love travelling, listening to live music, and trying new food (I'm a terrible chef, but getting better!)

Qualifications & Experience

I have taught non native speakers of English for over five years. I have taught all ages, from 6 to adults, and levels, from complete beginner to advanced. I also have experience teaching Business English, IELTS preparation, TOEFL preparation, TOEIC preparation, SAT preparation, Cambridge Exam preparation, American Pronunciation, and Key Stage 2 preparation.

I am a CELTA-certified teacher who has taught in Russia, Australia, and New Zealand to both monolingual and multilingual classes.

Teaching Approach

I have been trained to teach in the communicative method. My goal is to help guide students to gain confidence in practical communication.

I try to adapt every lesson to the needs of my students, while keeping an informal environment that allows students to experiment with language until they feel confident. I try to use authentic materials in my general English classes that are pertinent to the students' interests and needs.

Verbalplanet only allows one trial lesson per student, so please be sure to let me know beforehand if you need to cancel or change the time of a lesson with me.
