My name is Alan, I am 36 years old, I have been teaching English for almost 6 years (In Cambodia and Spain) and now I would like to start teaching online.
I am an experienced and qualified English teacher, with experience teaching different age groups and skill levels, and with a strong emphasis on speaking skills. Teaching in Asia, I learned valuable skills such as classroom management, teaching with limited resources, cultural sensitivity and a creative approach to teaching. More recently in Europe, I have been focussing mostly on conversation classes and exam preparation (Cambridge FCE), building on my existing knowledge and developing as a teacher.
As well as being a language teacher, I am also a passionate language student myself, having taught myself Spanish, Portuguese, German and Esperanto, and I like to share my enthusiasm for foreign languages in the classroom with my students.
If you study with me, you will get a lot of speaking practice, but I
can also help you with vocabulary and grammar too. I like to get to
know my students before I teach them and learn about them and their
interests, then I put that into the lessons to make it more
interesting and rewarding for the student.
To sum up, if you want to improve your spoken English in a relaxed yet
stimulating way, I could be the right teacher for you. I hope to teach you soon!
