I moved to Poland 4 years ago from London, I chose Warsaw as in my previous trips it always seemed a city with an interesting culture and history. Now it's become my home and I live here with my wife and son. Doing my TEFL in London ignited a passion for teaching which further encouraged me to move to Poland to continue developing as a teacher.
I've been teaching in Warsaw for 4 years teaching a wide variety of students from business professionals who need to communicate with their partners across the globe to young children who need preparation for their school exams. I've also ran intensive courses to help students prepare to take the CAE and CPE exams.
For the last 4 years I've been teaching in offices helping with official correspondence, business conversations from small talk to pitches and teaching in various legal departments discussing legal issues of the day and discussing legal vocabulary.
I also spent two years teaching in various government ministries around Warsaw. During this time I was teaching ministers, junior ministers and civil servants helping them prepare for meetings, write and proof read reports and practice presentations in front of delegations or EU boards.
The feedback I get from my students highlights the individual approach I take with each of them, I greatly enjoy designing my own lessons to ensure they are interesting, unique and challenging for my students.
I hold a degree in History and Political Philsophy from Brighton University.
In my spare time I enjoy reading (especially history and fantasy books), watching wrestling, cricket, football (especially my favorite team Newcastle United). I like to travel and enjoy taking my family to places around Poland (my favorites include Bialowieza and the Tatra mountains)
