I am currently self-employed and have been running my own English language tuition service for four years, where I’ve sourced, managed and taught many ESL students as well as others with learning disabilities, or time constraints.
I live with my wife in S.W London, and we've been here, on and of, since 2005. Aside from work, we love to travel and explore different parts of the country, as well as overseas, time permitting. Our weekends usually consist of socializing with friends or visiting markets, festivals and towns outside of London. I play tennis and golf, and also enjoy outdoor activities like skiing/snowboarding and hiking.
Teaching languages, especially English, is my passion and I have taught privately, and in schools for over 8 years (CELTA Qualified). Like many of you I have travelled and enjoy mixing and learning from different cultures, as well as learning languages. I have taught in South America, Asia and Europe where I’ve helped lots of students achieve the level of English they need, in a fun and personal environment.
The courses I offer are:
Conversational – Fluency, listening and pronunciation.
Social – Modern Language, Slang and Popular Expressions that you never have time to learn in schools.

My teaching approach is all about your comfort and goals. I can help you with any problem areas that are slowing your learning or confidence in English. I offer all kinds of lessons from ‘Conversational’ to ‘Business’ or ‘Examinations’.
Please consider, that I offer a much more personalized service than any schools you will find, with a greater value for your time and money. If you are serious about developing your English then private tuition is a smart move, and I can help.
