Information about Paul
I`m a highly experienced professional English Language tutor who has taught English for the past 15 years.
I currently teach EAL part-time at a preparatory school in East Sussex, mostly preparing overseas students for their common entrance exams.
I worked for Web International in China from 2005 -2012, firstly in Shanghai and then latterly as Head Teacher in the Xiamen Centre in Fujian for three years.
I have also taught English in both Italy and the Czech Republic teaching at numerous businesses mostly notably Skoda Auto in the Czech Republic.
During this time I have acquired the tools fundamental to being an excellent teacher. I have extensive teaching experience from young learners to adults from both my time overseas and in England. I`m flexible, patient and encouraging and furthermore adaptable and possess the ability to individually tailor my lessons, teaching style and language to the individual needs of my students. I`m highly organised and exceptional at monitoring and maintaining the progress of my students. I believe I act with integrity and fairness and encourage this in all of my students too.
I view myself as a facilitator, I can only teach students so much, they have to do their bit too. I believe that I have consistently empowered my students to achieve more than they thought possible. I motivate, support and encourage. It is about tapping into their own self-belief. I have seen students arrive at schools with very little or no English and have seen many leave as not just confident speakers of English but confident rounded individuals in charge of their own destiny.
I believe in teaching lessons that are innovative, fun yet educational, learning must be something that a person enjoys to fully achieve their potential. I have considerable experience of teaching preparation classes such as FCE, CAE and IELTS.
I would like to think that previous colleagues and associates of mine would say I possesses an infectious enthusiasm for my work. I remain positive in my outlook in life even when faced with challenges.
I hold a current enhanced DBS check and am also First Aid trained. I`m well versed in current Health and Safety procedure and hold the welfare and safety of those in my charge and with whom I work with very seriously.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: 15 years teaching EFL.
