About Me

Hello, this is Martin. I am a professional English teacher and have over 11 years teaching experience with adults and young learners. I have taught students from all over the world including: Korea, China, Thailand, Japan, Europe, Russia and the Middle East.

I am comfortable with teaching speaking and developing learners' ability to improve the following:
> Pronunciation
> Functional language
> Spoken fluency
> Natural listening
> British Culture

I have experience of teaching English to adults online and I am comfortable with helping learners improve their communication and cultural awareness online. I can prepare adults and children for a range of examinations including: IELTS and Cambridge Exams. I have worked as a teacher in South Korea and Romania but spent most of my teaching career in the UK.

I hold an MA in English Language Teaching as well as all the necessary recognised qualifications and am constantly looking at ways to improve my professional development.
