Having graduated from the University of Sussex in 2014 with an upper-class degree with honours, I immediately undertook and gained my teaching qualification (CELTA) and began my tutoring career. I hold extensive experience of teaching children KS1 - KS3, whilst having amassed the vast majority of my teaching experience with children between the ages of six and eighteen in over four years of teaching since obtaining my teaching qualification (CELTA). I have taught in a wide variety of environments, including numerous language schools, face-to face tuition in both client's residences and academic institutions; whilst also, in recent years, over Skype to clients based all over the world. I have taught children with dyslexia and understands the extra patience and attention this can sometimes require, so that the child excels as best they can.
I pride myself on my people skills, in particular motivating, encouraging and inspiring my students to be the best they can be, whilst also being empathetic around the individual student’s needs. I take the attitude that "you get out what you put in", is not only relevant to a learner of a language. I believe that a tutor should be an inspiring and engaging teacher that really can make all the difference to a students' life and well-being.
I am quite an active guy. In my free time you will often see me on the rugby field, hiking up much of Britain's wonderful countryside, working out and swimming wherever I can. I am also currently learning Spanish at night school and looks forward to testing out my new language skills whilst abroad in the near future.
