An excellent tutor

Written by Amy W
Stephen Clarke is an excellent tutor whose enthusiasm and professionalism has inspired me and gave me the confidence to pursue a career in teaching. His lessons are fun and engaging and he was able to adapt his teaching around the individual needs of the group. He used a range of activities to generate interest and encouraged us all to push ourselves further. I would highly recommend Stephen as both a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and as a tutor to those who intend to teach English abroad.
Subject:
EFL
Outcome:
I am currently finishing my TEFL course and I intend to go teach abroad in the future.

Stephen Clarke - Teaching us to Teach

Written by Karen P
I was on a weekend course Stephen ran, as part of a TEFL course, in July. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the skills needed to be a successful and creative TEFL teacher. He made everybody in the group feel comfortable and confident very quickly with his warm personality and great sense of humour. He showed a wide knowledge of his subject and many other languages and cultures. He offered support and encouragement during the practical stages of the course and gave useful advice to all students throughout the weekend.

Amazing Tutor

Written by Laura C
Stephen taught me for the classroom portion of the TEFL 120 Hour combined course. He was positive, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. He explained everything in detail, made sure everyone understood both the activity and the reasons behind it, and kept the 20 hours fun and engaging. Although the schedule of the classroom section was intensive, as it was done over 2 long days, I loved it, in large part due to Stephen's teaching methods. I absolutely recommend him as a tutor.
Subject:
EFL
Outcome:
Positive, TEFL passed

Skilled Native English Tutor

Written by Amanda L
As a mature adult student preparing to Teach English as a Foreign Language, I was recently required to attend an intense weekend study programme to qualify myself to present teaching of the english language by using different techniques for foreign students.
Our course tutor was Stephen Clarke who demonstrated the different techniques we will require and the stumbling blocks we could experience whilst doing so. He has helped me understand the tenses of this complex language and how I can present to future learners I may come across.
Stephen is a vibrant, resourceful teacher with a kindly and understanding approach. He showed patience, knowledge and evidence that his teaching methods are successful. He has a commanding presence in the classroom that makes learning easy, fun and interesting.
He is a friendly, approachable lecturer who brings out the best in his students.
I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending him as an EFL Teacher.
Subject:
EFL
Outcome:
Stephen helped me attain my Classroom Module of the 120 hour course which has provided me with the skills and knowledge I will need to become a fully qualified English Foreign Teacher.

probably the best teacher i've ever had

Written by William M
I was taught by Steve for a weekend TEFL course in Nottingham, August 2017.
As part of the course he illustrated how we would be required to teach none-English speakers English by teaching us none-German speakers German.
We learnt German that day.
We learnt a lot about teaching in a language the students don't speak and Steve did this amazingly.

I truly wish I'd had Steve as a teacher in my school days.
Thanks Steve
Subject:
English
Outcome:
I learnt a lot about how to teach students that don't speak English and had fun doing so.
