Everything you need to know about me
Before becoming a teacher, my background was in the IT (Information Technology) Industry, where I worked for more than 15 years.
In September 2001 I retrained as an English teacher with Windsor Schools, Windsor, England. If anyone’s interested, my teaching cert is available here, although I think these comments from recent emails are far more informative. Most of them were received in reply to an email to former students, in which I invited them to this website. [The emails started by asking if they remembered me, which is why many of them start with an assurance that they do :)]
Prior to coming to Vietnam, I taught in Slovakia, Mexico, and Indonesia.
I have spent the last 12 years in Vietnam, the last 2 of which have been in Vung Tau, where I live with my wife and new baby.
Most of my work here has been IELTS related and I worked for 5 years as an IELTS examiner for IDP in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, which is why I describe myself as an IELTS expert.
