A little about myself:
Hi there, my name is Hugh (休老师). I am an Australian English Teacher who has been teaching in Asia for more than 10 years. I am certified as a Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) as well as in Adult Training and Assessment (TAE). Additionally I studied English Literature and Linguistics (the science of language, including language acquisition) at the University of New England.
I began my career teaching working for English First in Indonesia🌋. After that I went on to become the English Coordinator at several schools and also an Educational Consultant for language programs👨🏫.
I have also worked in Translation 🤖(Ind.En En.Ind), as a TV host 📺🎥, as a MC/Public Speaker 🗣🎙, as an Event Organiser (concerts and festivals 🎶) and in many other positions while I was still a teenager. So I can usually relate to the many lifestyles and career choices of my students.
I have been teaching online 💻 in addition to my regular duties for almost 5 years now. My teaching style is described by my students as friendly, fun and interesting 😎.
My interests include reading 📖, especially but not limited to the classics, business, psychology, education, history and sociology. I also love fitness , nature🐧🌴, motorcycling and cycling 🚲.
I have many students who have been studying with me for years, I love working together with people and developing new friendships 👥 as I help them with their English. Please get in touch with me 📬 if you'd like to experience learning with me.
