As well as having a number of teaching qualifications I am constantly updating my knowledge of English language teaching by taking short courses to improve my knowledge and skills.
What kind of experience do you have?
Many years ago I taught undergraduate and postgraduate students a variety of business related subjects. Many of my students were from overseas and this is where I became aware of the specific problems they faced, studying for a degree in a second language. They had to work twice as hard as the UK students and I admired them for their perseverance.

This lead me to focus on teaching English as a Foreign Language and I have now been teaching for approximately 20 years.

I am also able to travel to South Birmingham, Solihull and Shirley in the West Midlands.

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I predominately teach via Skype because most of my students are familiar with it and, usually, already have access to it. Skype allows us to share screens and to write messages and this, along with emailing materials and working from text books, has always been successful in the past.
