ABOUT ME: ⭐TEFL CERTIFIED TUTOR ⭐7+ YEARS TEACHING EXPERIENCE ⭐EX BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL
Hi everyone, I am Garreth, from England and I have helped 1,000’s of students improve their English levels (please see some of my reviews below) and I would love to help you also. Before teaching English, I worked in the finance industry in London. I have been teaching English for over 7 years (online & classroom) to professionals and students of all ages and backgrounds (from elementary kids and university students to teaching Business English to professional individuals) and I really, really enjoy it!
I am a flexible and personable teacher and I strongly believe in making students feel relaxed (I know what it’s like to try and learn a new language!) I adapt my lessons so that you learn at your own pace as I think this is important and I always try and make them as fun as possible!
Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you...
