My name is Alexander Cobb. I am a qualified business English teacher and have qualified teacher status, a TEFL certification and a degree in business management.
I want our lessons to be fun, relevant and interesting.
I have helped people improve their business English from countries all over the world including Poland, Spain, France, Pakistan, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and more.
I taught English in Southern Poland. I worked in schools, companies and freelance (self-employed). I also taught English learners over the summer period in Devon, UK.
Lessons can include but are not limited to;
**Introducing yourself in a business context**
**Having great interviews**
**Learning new vocabulary and idioms**
**Important cultural norms in Business**
**Cutting-edge technologies to help with your Business English**
**Dealing with complaints**
**Social media guidelines in English**
I've worked in Business support and Innovation in local government. I helped businesses and business owners which I loved! I dealt with many different business settings and situations on a daily basis. I have also previously worked in Customer relations dealing with queries and complaints about travel insurance for a Spanish Insurance company.
I've written successful blogs, created effective marketing material and have exceptional copywriting skills as well.
I believe that my love and experience of teaching and understanding of business can help you to be confident using your business English.
