My name is Brian and I am a native British EFL teacher, currently living in the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus, but also recently based in Turkey. I have been a teacher for over 20 years and in the last few years I have concentrated on EFL. I work with all of my students on Skype and currently teach people in Sao Paulo, London, Zurich, Moscow, Osaka and Jakarta. I have spent many years teaching group classes, but now focus on individual tuition across a wide range of abilities from Intermediate to Advanced.
I have successfully prepared over 75 students for IELTS and have also worked with a significant number of students preparing for top-level multi-national interviews and presentations in corporate settings. I also work with a number of English Teachers who are non- native speakers, helping to improve accent and pronunciation as well as grammar and reading. Most of my students have specific study goals, but others simply want to improve their conversational skills for travel, social or business interests. I use engaging, topical material during my lessons and many of my students also bring their own ideas and projects to the sessions.
I love travelling, music, culture and most of all - being on the beach! As a language learner myself, I really understand the challenges and the fun of acquiring a foreign language. I look forward to helping you achieve your study goals!
