About me


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!

Teaching Approach

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!
