About the lesson

Language is a skill, it is not something that should be studied like history or science where you are memorizing facts. To successfully raise language skill, just like improving at a sport, we must train and practice. In this way of thinking, we are not teacher and student, but coach and athlete. The coach writes a training program and the athlete follows it, along the way, the coach sees the athlete's strengths and weaknesses and adapts the program to suit the athlete's particular needs, This is how language is supposed to be taught, this is how I coach it, this is also why I am the last English coach you will ever need

    1) When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?

    I've been teaching ESL and IELTS since nearly 20 years ago, when I first went to China to teach. What has driven me to the top of my field and kept me passionate about my work is meeting all the inspiring people who contact me to help them succeed in their plans for the future. Seeing the passion these people have to make their dreams come true inspires me to be the best I can be too, in order to serve them.

  • 02

    2) What makes you passionate about your subject?

    When my students succeed, I succeed.

  • 03

    What makes me a 'Superprof' is that this is my full- time business, I support my family off my private tutoring, so my reputation as a qualified and skilled professional is what puts the bread on my table.

    3) What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?

  • 04

    4) Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.

    I've been lucky enough to have many inspiring teachers throughout both my careers as a student and as a teacher, but the lesson that they all had in common was that to be successful, we must care about what we are doing, and care about the people and the world around us. Then we must work smart as well as hard to ensure our dreams come true. By working together, we can help make the world a better place.
