Hi! My name’s Michael and I’m a professional CELTA qualified ESL teacher. In the past, I taught general English at private language schools, but I now prefer to bring my creativity and enthusiasm to the online classroom with a diverse range of students from around the world. I’m an Environmental Studies graduate, speak good Russian and worked for the Diplomatic Service for almost ten years; gaining a range of overseas experience, which has helped me with my online English teaching.
My lessons are engaging and highly relevant to the needs of my students and I enjoy teaching with OTUK because it gives me the chance to treat each student as an individual and address their specific study goals.
Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and young son and helping with volunteer projects in the local community.
