Martin has been teaching English to students from Beginners to Advanced, from children to grandmothers, for over 25 years. He has helped thousands of students to pass many different types of exams including the Cambridge University KET, PET and IELTS and the ToEFL iBT. He was also a Cambridge examiner until a couple of years ago, when he decided to focus on teaching online.
Martin is a popular teacher trainer, having run many seminars and workshops for the British Council, Pearson Education, Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press. At these events he used a lot of materials and games he created himself, with an emphasis on fun and learning through laughter.
Nowadays, he specializes in improving speaking skills and training people to do presentations.
In his free time Martin loves reading, writing and watching films. He is also a prize-winning songwriter. And, as you might expect from his "English Jokes" course, he loves helping his young son develop his sense of humour.
