Information About Charlie - Chelsea teacher - (19 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Charlie:
My name is Charlie and I've been teaching both English and Spanish for a long time! I specialize in corporate work, GSCE, A level and higher education.
I'm 46 years old and have taught TEFL around the world as well as running my own language school for several years in the UK. I have also written a self-study Spanish course entitled 'Spanish with Carlos' and an English grammar resource book for teachers called 'A Sense of English'.
With excellent interpersonal skills I'm able to build great connections with students of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy reading, creative writing, sport and travel. I'm living a dream by working for myself as a full-time tutor in London.
And yes, I have an up-to-date, enhanced DBS certificate.
I'm experienced in tutoring personnel of various financial institutions, including Jump Trading (current) and previously Arthur Andersen as well as a number of Spanish banks.
In the late 1990s I set up and ran my own language school in the UK. The focus was on private and small group tuition of both English as a foreign language and Spanish. I've also taught in Hungary, Spain, South Korea and Turkey, where I was the Assistant Head of the English Department in the country's top private school (TED Ankara College) and the official proofreader for all the English exams. A year ago I returned to England to set up my own language services business here in London, offering tuition, proofreading, editing, translation and interpreting.
My years of experience help me gauge the needs of my students and tailor an appropriate study programme for them.
For students of Spanish with little or no prior knowledge of the language, I encourage the use of my course 'Spanish with Carlos'. I give all my students a free copy of this, and also use a range of supplementary material that over the years I have written myself. I select the material depending on individual needs. In this way, specific problems that different students might have can be addressed more fully, so that his/her learning can flow at a pace that suits them.
With English teaching, it is the same. I have a range of material that I have written myself over the years that cover all levels and abilities. I'm also fully familiar with the National Curriculum requirements for both English Language and Literature and Spanish through the different Key Stages.

He has made the lessons engaging and interesting and helped him to not only develop his vocabulary but also to develop his comprehension and understanding of articles he reads.
His end of year exams showed huge progress and he achieved way above average in his year, which was a lovely surprise for us !
I am extremely grateful to Charlie for his encouragement and continued enthusiasm in tutoring my son in this subject. Would definitely reccommend Charlie to anyone looking for an English tutor.
One of the main reasons why I did contact Charlie in the first place was because he speakes Spanish which is my first language, so I thought that his support could be extremely beneficial and it was. I have been working with Charlie for 8 months now and since day 1 he has been able to work out with me different schedules for our sessions as I work and study at the same time. His support is exceptional.
I will most definitly recomend Charlie.
Thank you for all the help.
He has been very professional and structured on he appproaches the lessons but equially important is that he is taking time to undersand and set the goals of the end result desired to be achieved. So happy to see that it is working for my son. Thank you Charlie
He was helping me to proofread my final year project And personal statement. During the proofreading he gave conductive feedbacks not just for the essay, but also for the general English gramma learning.
He is a patient and knowledgeable person. I can’t thank him enough for all the help that he give me, with he’s help I was able to take my work to a next level. I will definitely recommend him as a tutor!
