Personal Description:

My name's Darren. I'm 41 and based in Honiton in East Devon. I'm a qualified linguist and EFL teacher and can offer you a very personalized tuition service to help you meet you goals. In addition to General English, I have a lot of experience in exam preparation and specialize in Business English, currently working for a German company in which I teach students from a range of European companies. I'm a very friendly teacher and students find me fun and easy to work with. I have experience of working with all ages from 9+, having taught young learners at summer schools. I have a full (enhanced) DBS check.

Tutoring Experience:

English as a Foreign Language:
- All levels of the Common European Framework Reference for languages: A0-C2.
- General English (reading, writing, speaking and listening skills across everyday topics)
- Business English (such as interview skills, presenting, call handling and industry-specific vocabulary)
- Exam Skills & Preparation (IELTS, CAE, FCE)
- Effective Writing
- Conversation.

German:

Tutoring Approach:

Prior to teaching, I worked as a Training Manager in a HR department where I designed and delivered bespoke training solutions in the workplace. As a result, my learners benefit from a highly personalized tutoring service, tailored to their individual needs using a range of different materials. Every lesson has a clear learning objective and after each session you will be given a feedback sheet with vocabulary, error corrections and phonemic script to help you with any pronunciation difficulties.
