Sobre mí


My name is Chris. I am an EFL teacher and have been teaching for about 4 years in Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal and now- online.

I am a relaxed, happy and friendly chap (man) who is easy to talk to and easy to learn with. I will encourage you and support you as you learn this crazy language and we can laugh and chat (talk) along the way. You can learn in whatever style you feel comfortable with: Formal lessons, discussing topics, conversational English or a little of everything. You may just want to have someone to talk to or want someone to check documents, CV's or applications. You decide. Whatever works for you is what's important.

Before teaching I had a long career which included being a production director for two of the major UK design/advertising agencies and running my own typesetting company, a large family entertainment centre and some online sales websites. In 2012 I sold up everything and left England to travel the world with my wife. Along the way we both became trained EFL teachers and very much enjoy our nomadic lifestyle moving slowly from country to country. I have three grown children and one grandson back in England. I am a keen sportsman and like reading, listening to music and being with my lovely wife.

I hope to hear from you soon but, if not, thank you for reading and good luck with your English.
