À propos de moi

Hello!

My name is Christopher and I am an English native speaker from the UK. I am TEFL qualified (130 hours) and have nearly five years of teaching experience, both as a classroom teacher and as a 1-1 tutor.

I began my career teaching students in the UK who were from all over the world, including Polish, Chinese, Argentinean and Indian.

I moved to Belarus in August, 2013 and I taught at four different language schools over a three year period in the capital, Minsk, gaining lots of invaluable experience during this time.

I then moved to Krakow, Poland, in January 2017 and was employed by Speak Up language school, one of the top three language schools in Poland.

Since October, 2017, I have been living back in the UK and working as a full-time online ESL teacher.

I have had the pleasure of teaching students from all over the globe, including students whose native languages are Cantonese and Mandarin, Russian, Polish, Italian, Spanish and French. Therefore I am familiar with the mistakes that students who speak these languages can make.

I am a friendly and patient person and I cultivate a relaxed atmosphere in my classes. After all, I understand how stressful it can be to speak a foreign language! I will do my best to 'put you at ease', that is, to make you feel more confident when speaking.

I often begin with a chat to find out your needs in detail so that I can then plan lessons according to your own requirements. I always prepare a variety of tasks as I find that students often need such variation to maintain concentration and enjoyment; it also means you will do and achieve more in my classes.

Please contact me for further enquiries. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Christopher
