About me

I lived in Japan for the past 12 years and only just moved back to Australia to be with family. I taught at Elementary School,  Junior High School and High School, as well as at Eikawas while I lived in Japan. I now live in Perth, Western Australia with my wife and son. It's very different here from Japan. I'm afraid I've become to accustomed to Japanese life. I speak English and conversational Japanese. When I have a chance, I enjoy watching movies, chatting with friends, drawing and working out at the gym.

About me

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.

I moved to Japan in 2019 and now live in the Matsudo City area of Chiba, with my wife and two dogs. I work as an an English language teacher.

I am an experienced, qualified teacher and have taught in state schools, in the UK, for 10 years.

I have also taught English for 7 years as a private tutor; as a Kumon instructor and as an EFL teacher in England.

When teaching English, I like to encourage my students to speak as much English as they can, to encourage them to start to think in English. I will expect you to work hard in lessons but I will also be very patient with you.

I want to build your confidence and ability in English so that you can achieve your ambitions.

Before I became a teacher, I worked as an accountant and financial consultant and have worked in many countries as part of my job, including Japan, where I worked at BMW Japan for a year. I have a lot of background knowledge of both the automotive and education sectors.

About me

I was born and raised in America and I am currently living in Greece. I prefer to tailor my lessons depending on the student's needs and I also find teaching people from various cultural backgrounds fascinating. Apart from teaching, I am in business myself and I understand my client's needs for effective communication. On an everyday basis, I operate a small hotel unit, interact with customers, negotiate with local providers and investigate new areas for growth. In all my interactions I cooperate with people nationally as well as internationally and I realize the necessity to declare my position in a culturally appropriate yet business-like professional manner.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and when it is possible traveling.

About me

I was born in Australia and lived in Hobart and Sydney. I grew up in a bilingual environment conversing between Greek and English. Growing up in such an environment gave me the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds and cultures.

In my late 20s, I moved to Greece. I lived and taught in Athens, for 5 years before moving to Nottingham, UK. I taught English for Academic Purposes at The University of Nottingham for 10 years. Furthermore, I was an IELTS Speaking and Writing examiner for 6 years.  Now, I am back in Athens and in the summers, I go to The UK to teach English for Academic Purposes at different universities. For example, during summer 2018, I taught at King's College and  summer 2019 I taught for 3 months at The University of Edinburgh.

Asides from teaching, I enjoy meeting people, going to the cinema, exploring new places and I am learning to play classical guitar.

About me

Hello, I´m Ben. I´m originally from the United Kingdom and now I live and work in Madrid, Spain.

I have ten years experience as an English Language teacher and I hold the DipTESOL (Trinity College London) and CELTA (Cambridge University) teaching qualifications. I have worked as a teacher in a range of contexts, including language schools, universities, and organizations including government ministries and investment banks. I am also an experienced examiner with Cambridge, IELTS, and Aptis.

I hold a Business Economics degree, and prior to becoming a language teacher I held managerial positions in the secondary and quaternary sectors.

I spend most of my free time walking in the countryside with my dog, and I love all sports, especially rugby, boxing, and football.
