About Me

My name is Ben and I am a native English teacher from England.

I have a lot of experience in teaching English to adults and have taught in China, Mexico, ​and Peru. I have taught many students from beginner, intermediate and advanced level as well as business English, and I can help you prepare for English exams, for example, Toefl and IELTS.

I have learned several languages myself, so I have a good understanding of how to learn quickly and can give you tips that I have learned from my experience. I speak German, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and a bit of French so I can also teach you in your native language.

My classes are planned for each different student and I can provide lesson plans for exactly what you want to learn. I like to mainly focus on speaking as I believe this is the most fun and quickest way to improve your language skills and I always encourage and praise my students to talk as much as they can in my classes and to ask questions. I also follow textbooks to provide a good structure to the classes and use extra material for Grammar and Pronunciation.

In my free time, I like to travel and learn foreign languages. I’m currently in Peru improving my Spanish.

So if there is anything you would like to know don’t hesitate to get in touch and I look forward to seeing you soon!
