My name is Toby and I am from the UK. I am now looking for students wishing to learn or improve their English. I hold a TEFL certificate which means I am qualified to teach you English. In addition, I hold a BSc (Hons) degree and worked for several years in oil and gas exploration.
I approach teaching with a kind and patient manner. Whether young or old, I always think we learn better when we feel more relaxed and at ease. Although I am less experienced with online teaching, I am incredibly passionate about learning and through my teaching career in snow sports I have demonstrated I can adapt to teach all ages and abilities.
In my English lessons I would be well placed to help those wishing to learn business or technical English, as a result of my time in the energy industry. I am familiar with technical report writing and business communication. I can especially help those working in oil, gas, sub-sea and survey industries that need to improve English for their profession. I also have experience of the Cambridge Advanced English exam (CAE), I have even taken this exam myself for an immigration visa. I am also happy to give conversation practice and teach absolute beginners.
If you can already speak some English but are not sure how to progress, then in our first lesson we would see what level you are at and develop a suitable plan to improve. Perhaps, you already know what area of language you want help with, then we can make contact before the lesson, then I can plan our time together so the lesson is of the most benefit. Whatever the scenario, I think it is important that I understand your needs and interests so the lesson is as engaging and useful as possible.
Are you a total beginner? Then, do not worry! I will introduce you to the language with patience and make a plan to work through the basics and beyond.
Whatever your goals, I look forward to teaching you!
