Hi! My name is Brian and I am a British EFL teacher, currently living in Turkey. I work with around two thirds of my students on Skype and I also have a range of face-to-face private lessons here in Izmir. I have spent many years teaching group classes, but now focus on individual tuition across a wide range of abilities from pre-intermediate to advanced. I also do some teacher training for EFL tutors.
I have successfully prepared over 50 students for IELTS and have also worked with a good number of students preparing for top-level interviews and presentations in corporate settings. Most of my students have specific study goals, but others simply want to improve their conversational skills for travel, social or business interests. I use engaging, topical material during my classes and many of my students also bring their own ideas and projects to the lessons.
I love travelling, music, culture and most of all – being on the beach! As a language learner myself, I really understand the challenges and the fun of acquiring a foreign language. I look forward to helping you achieve your study goals!
