English teacher with 30 years experience and knowledge of Arabic and Spanish give lessons in speaking and writing English language. I can also prepare students for the IELTS exam.

Methodology

I tailor my teaching to the needs of the student. I have thirty years experience in teaching reading, writing, listening and speaking. I can speak Arabic and Spanish so I believe this can help me in teaching students whose first language is Arabic or Spanish. I have am MA, Diploma and Certificate in teaching English as a second language. I have spent a lot of time in preparing students for the IELTS exam.

Background

I have been teaching English language for thirty years. I have taught English language at all levels from basic literacy to fluency. I have taught in both private organizations and government schools in Sudan, Greece, Egypt, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

I have held positions as senior teacher at various times in my career, and have been a team leader for a team of approximately nine teachers for the last four years. I have also been an IELTS examiner and taught for the IELTS examination.

I have an MA in applied linguistics /TEFLA, a BA degree in English and history, the CELTA (Certificate in teaching English to adults) and the DELTA (Diploma in teaching English to adults) both from the Royal Society of Arts.

I believe that my experience in teaching a wide variety of linguistics groups and my continued enthusiasm for teaching will allow me to help you in learning English. I also believe that my knowledge of Arabic, Spanish, and French language might facilitate my teaching.
