I began teaching English as a foreign language 20+ years ago. I have taught to all levels, all ages and I could add to almost all professions over those years. My last position which was in France, allowed me to perfect the Business training aspect of the language.I worked in some of the countries leading international companies and helped build their employees language skills.I acted as pedagogical director for the last 4 years in France and had the pleasure of leading a team of over 40 teachers of all nationalities. This meant I needed to become well read on modern teaching methods and also working alongside publishers.I provided a translating and proofreading service for clients for various texts ranging from numerous PowerPoint presentations on new product launches to Automotive Manuals for training mechanics!
I've had great success teaching students for official exams, in particular TOEIC, BULATS and am an accredited & listed examiner for both.
