About Me

I am into health and sport and like to be fresh and "on the ball for classes": I hardly ever get ill with a cold or flu. I am a Christian and do not work from Friday-Saturday evenings for this reason (24 hours a week) and do work on Sundays.

Tutor Experience

I have been teaching English online for about 15 years, as first started in January 2007 and also first offline in 1996, so have taught very many students in that time - I am well used to online teaching requirements. I have helped many students online to achieve their goals, for the IELTS exam, business English and general English - I was born in the UK and have a standard UK accent and in addition, I am a grammar specialist.

Furthermore, I am currently completing an M.A. in Theology degree (after doing a university theology foundation course called a Postgraduate Diploma) and planning to commence theology doctoral studies from perhaps September 2023. I also had previously studied religion at high school( getting the highest grade classification possible at that time).

Client Reviews

fast and clear


fast and clear


Well organized and productive lesson. Essays corrected and some time provided for speaking practice as well.


Speaking practice, a couple of exam questions covered. A sort of disagreement over the"radiation energy" issue, which was based upon the philosophy of examining and passing exams rather than on the language itself. Changing of the backward distracted the attention of both parties.


It was the BEST class in the WORLD - NK :)
