My name is Alex and I am a fully CELTA qualified native English speaker and highly experienced English language teacher with over eight years’ experience teaching English in the UK, Italy, Poland and Germany to individuals and in groups.
I have also significant experience in the business and charity sectors where I worked in marketing and communications and project management for many years. If you are looking to find a job here in London I have also helped a number of students with CV and interview preparation which has proven a good investment upon finding employment.
I have also studied extensively myself at postgraduate level so am thus well equipped with skills to check academic work for a reasonable rate. I can also speak intermediate Italian and basic Polish so am aware of the challenges people face when learning new languages.

I was fortunate enough to benefit from extensive continual professional development at what I believe to world class English language training at International House, for whom I worked in both Poland and London as teacher, Recruiter and Marketeer.
Since then the original 'communicative approach' which puts the student at the centre of English teaching has been at the heart of my teaching. This communicative approach is also holistic and I can therefore help you reach greater confidence in your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.
I believe that each learner has different requirements and my lessons are therefore based on your needs, whether academic, business or personal. My main objective is to foster greater communication skills in my students using a professional yet informal approach.
