About Me

Hello, my name is Kevin and I am a freelance English teacher and experienced English test examiner and coach (more than 10 years).

I have over 15 years of English teaching experience including mostly business and academic English and have a CELTA certificate. I have also been an EIKEN, BULATS, TOEFL teacher and examiner.

I like to go surfing in summer and snowboarding in winter. I have traveled and lived in countries around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, France and Spain etc.

I wrote and published an IELTS test preparation guide book (currently Japanese only) and am studying a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (M.A. TESOL)

I am an expert in teaching the IELTS test and love helping people quickly improve their scores. Students tell me my lessons are always friendly and supportive, professional and clear.

If you want the best in IELTS test coaching and want to talk with me about your IELTS goals try a 30 minute trial lesson.
