About me

I have been teaching English as a foreign language for nine years and I have found it very enjoyable and rewarding. Teaching became a second career after many years in the Police service. My wife and I are also a host family for students coming to my home town of Broadstairs to learn English. We have always enjoyed hosting and have made many friends over the years. I like visiting historic buildings, museums and art galleries I enjoy eating out (particularly international food) I My hobbies include painting and drawing. I enjoy swimming and cycling. I also like to read (When I get time!) I regularly sing in a local choir and act on stage with local theatre groups. My greatest enjoyment is travelling and I have been fortunate to have visited many beautiful and fascinating countries and cities.

About my sessions

I like to fully engage with my students by getting to know them in order to establish a good working rapport and assess their individual needs. I like to make the lesson ‘student lead’ where possible. Depending on the nature of the lesson and the needs of the student, I place a high priority on speaking fluency with error correction towards the end of the stage or lesson. I believe in making topics interesting with added humour and enthusiasm where appropriate. I often keep my lessons interesting for the student with quizzes, games, video clips and power-points.
