My name is Phil and I have a Master's degree in English and a Post Graduate teaching qualification from one of the best universities in England. I've been teaching for five years, mainly in London, Bangkok and through online teaching platforms.
I've taught a huge range of ages, abilities and nationalities and have taught everything from basic vocabulary and conversation to advanced grammar and IELTS preparation.
My approach to teaching is simple and effective, I try to make sure my students enjoy my lessons by adapting to their personality. If you have any questions or are interested in booking a lesson I would love to hear from you.
