About Me

Hi, My name is Martyn. I live in Wales in the UK. I have my TEFL certificate and I'm an IELTS coach. My aim is to get my students speaking as much as possible about the things that interest them. I have a background in business and engineering and have traveled to many countries in my previous occupation as a senior engineer in a global manufacturing company. I used to interview engineers and was an assessment centre assessor.
When I'm not teaching English I instruct adventurous activities and coach sports. I have also written two books and I'm working on the third one.
