Hello, my name is Gareth. I have a degree in English from Oxford University and I studied for my CELTA at International House in Wrocław, Poland. I have travelled to many parts of the world and have been teaching English for over a decade. While in China and Malaysia I worked with students of all ages taught academic English, IELTS and TOEFL exam preparation, and also business English. Most recently I have been working online with students getting ready to take the Cambridge CAE and CPE language examinations. It is my belief that language instruction must be tailored to a student's individual needs and interests if it is to be effective. And I want my students to be engaged and happy while learning because a student who is smiling and thinking is learning on a truly deep and meaningful level. I look forward to meeting you on Verbling soon.
