Englishman with more than 25 years experience in Polish education teaching English as a foreign language

Bachelor's degree (BA, MS, BEd, BFA, etc.)


My name's John, and I'm from Nottingham in the UK. I moved to Poland in 1992 and was working at the university of Silesia for several years, before opening family run language schools.
For the last 5 years I have been teaching in Tri-City and have built up a client base which has included working with executives and managers from PKO, Asseco, Jysk, and Nordea, amongst others.
I also train people with a technical background, including IT professionals, offshore and marine, and engineering. I have extensive experience in preparing learners for the IELTS examinations, as well as working with learners of all ages for school or Cambridge certification (PET/KET/FCE/CAE). I am creative and patient: I can recognise learners' strengths, and their priorities and I enjoy seeing my learners benefit from their work.
I also do voice overs and corporate acting for promotional videos and training manuals, and technical proof-reading.
When i am not teaching or otherwise working I try to listen to every kind of music and walk the dog.
