À propos de moi

Hello everyone. My name is Russell. I have taught English for many years.

I have taught all levels, from beginner to advanced, or from levels A1 to C2. Mainly, I have taught in Cape Town, but I have taught students from all over the world.

I like to find out what interests my students, as most of us enjoy talking about what interests us. Naturally, if your lessons are interesting to you, they will also be enjoyable. From my experience, using English to talk about what interests you and what you enjoy will enable you to meet and socialise with English speakers who share your interests.

I have been in business for several years, and much of this time has been spent in managerial positions. Because of this, a have a good general knowledge of business, and I would be happy to include the world of business in our lessons.

I look forward to working with you as you learn English.
