I have been an English teacher in the UK and Japan for 25 years. I have taught thousands of students of all ages and from different kinds of backgrounds. I have a Master's Degree in Teaching English from Aston University in the UK and I am a Doctor in Education (Exeter University, UK).
I have written over thirty academic articles and chapters in journals and books as well as published textbooks and various kinds of teaching materials. I love teaching face to face in the classroom but I also think online courses and materials are a brilliant way to try and put ideas and thoughts across to students who can learn at their own pace and in their own time.
It is not easy to learn another language - as I know from my struggles with Japanese - but it is a wonderful tool to meet new people and make friends, learn about other places and use in your job. I hope that I can help you attain whatever goal you have for learning English.
