About me

Communication, empathy and fun are three things that are most important to my teaching philosophy. For this reason, I began to specialise in exam classes for FCE, CAE, CPE & IELTS for both adults and teens. I also became a trained speaking examiner for all Cambridge exams, giving me insider knowledge of what the assessors expect from candidates during speaking examinations.

I have experience of teaching in-company classes, business orientated English, and conversation-based classes. I also have recent experience of teaching academic English courses for the University of Sheffield.

I have taught teens and adults from elementary to proficiency and love being able to tailor my classes to my students′ specific needs. This is why I think it is essential for the teacher to find out about the needs of the student at the start of every course. I provide study materials for my students and set out specific and achievable goals based on their level, needs and interests.

Tom is a very good teacher and educator. My English language has improved with newvocabulary and better grammar.  Most noticeable to me is that he corrects my spokenEnglish with minimal intrusion, firmly but politely without me losing the flow of speech.
