Professional Business/General English Trainer with an MA TESOL and a previous career in IT/Finance

Bachelor's degree (BA, MS, BEd, BFA, etc.)
Master's degree (MA, MS, MEd, MFA, etc.)

Hi! My name is Tim and I'm a native speaker of English from England.

I obtained a teaching qualification (CELTA) in Poland in 2004 and have been based full-time in Warsaw since 2007. I have taught very high profile clients in Business & Government and I can offer you a highly professional approach to improving and expanding your English in the following areas:

General English; Business English or Financial English

Improving Conversational Fluency; Understanding Native Speakers

Cambridge/IELTS preparation; ESP (English for Specific Purposes)

My Approach

Each student will get a full needs analysis and the first meeting is free. Lessons are always individually tailored to your specific needs. I also have my own registered company so can issue invoices upon request.

I'm not one of those native speakers who will tell you "I don't do grammar", as I have expert knowledge of English grammar from having completed an MA in Applied Linguistics, in addition to my extensive teaching experience.

I also speak Polish to mid-intermediate level and can read Polish magazines and newspapers, so for those rare occasions when you cannot make yourself understood in English I can help you. Since I'm also an ongoing language student myself (of Polish), I appreciate the particular problems and difficulties learners of a foreign language face.

My Background

My original background was science [BSc. Astrophysics]. Then I switched to working as a software engineer [MSc. Computing Science] and ultimately specialised in Finance (Credit Risk and Credit Derivatives Analysis). This means I had a separate professional career before becoming a teacher and I bring this knowledge to my teaching.

Having worked in London for over 10 years, I still retain an active interest in Finance and Capital Markets and can discuss financial/economic concepts in depth.

Professional Qualifications

I have an MA (Distinction) in Applied Linguistics & TESOL from Leicester University in the UK, in addition to a CELTA, and I attend regular teaching conferences as part of my ongoing commitment to professional development.

I am also a member of the two major English teaching organisations - IATEFL and BESIG.

Please note that the rate quoted is the standard brutto rate for online lessons during Monday-Friday, but may vary depending on the circumstances.
