Hello all! My name is Harry Gyles and I am an English teacher from the South of England. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Nottingham Trent University, and a Trinity TESOL qualification from St George International in London.
Following two years working in Business, I discovered my passion for teaching on a trip to Cambodia, where I worked for an NGO and an International school for two one month placements. After this trip I took my Trinity certification and dedicated all of my time to teaching.
As of September 2015 I've been living and teaching English in the Basque Country of Spain for an Academy called Koma Lingua. In this post I teach Business English, Exam Preparation (including Cambridge exams & IELTS) and Functional English, to learners at ALL levels. I'm really enjoying this work but I'm currently looking to take on a few extra students through Verbling to make my schedule just a little bit busier!
My approach to teaching is Communicative - I believe a great relationship between Teacher and Student is the key to a positive learning environment. As a teacher I also try to ensure that all of my lessons are designed to meet the needs and interests of my students. This why in my lessons, I engage my students in REAL information and interesting topics that will give them the motivation speak and to dedicate their spare time to study.
Have a watch of my video and if you like what you see, and hear - because pronunciation is very important too - book me for a trial lesson. I promise to make your learning experience fun, progressive and suited to your goals!
