Experienced and qualified English Language Teacher
I have a CELTA, a Diploma of Higher Education and substantial experience teaching English as a foreign language. In my most recent role I was teaching at Kaplan International English were I have been teaching a variety of classes from beginner to upper intermediate. As well as using Kaplan’s materials I supplement these with additional activities and materials including authentic materials. In my previous position I was working for Business English School in Slovakia where I taught business English and general English, and also taught conversation lessons. I taught groups and one to one classes. I taught a range of levels from A2 up to C1. During my time at the school I also taught students in preparation for international exams, including FCE, IELTS and CAE. In addition, I also set and marked tests for learners. Prior to working at Business English School I worked for Nanjing Polytechnic Institute, where I taught college students. I also set and marked exams and awarded students their final grade for the course.
I am committed to providing learners with the personalised service they need to fully develop their English language skills. I believe people learn best when they are interested and inspired by lessons, and that's why it is essential to ensure lessons are adapted to help students best reach their personal learning goals, with an approach that is tailored to their needs.
As one of his best friends for more than 7 years, I highly recommend Alex to you. He is an experienced and appoachable person. He has got a lot of patience and love for his students. He has taught students of different levels in China, Slovakia and UK. In addition, he is such a kind person that ready to help people at any time.
He teaches students of different levels, from children to adults.
he has accumulated a lot of teaching experience and can help students sort out practical difficulties during their studies.
I am a personal friend of Alexander Hawkins
