Hi all and thanks for taking the time to look at my profile.

In a nutshell, I have been fortunate to travel around the world for both my career and for some leisure time and have lived for extended periods of time in the UK, Middle East and Southeast Asia. I have always loved other cultures and have noticed, sometimes frustratingly, that many of the people I have met have been desperate to speak English. Why has this been frustrating? Simple — because I have always wanted to try and learn their local language too! I have been a tutor and coach throughout my career from the military to scuba diving and have always loved the buzz I get when I see students «get it»! You will always get honesty from me and will always leave the lesson feeling satisfied and willing to come back for more and, I hope, smiling!

I’m a native English speaker and have no accent. In fact I was educated at boarding school in England so have a neutral English accent.

A little of my educational background…I have an MBA from Warwick Business School and a Bachelors of Engineering from Brunel University.

I’d love to hear from you!
