EFL and English Literature (Poetry) Tutor

With over 12 years experience as an English language teacher, I have taught young learners, students and professionals of all abilities. I have taught the range of Cambridge Exams (First, Advanced, Proficiency) and IELTS, as well as skills classes in pronunciation, business, culture and conversation.

I am a published poet, and bring my knowledge and experience of literature to my sessions, while guiding students towards their own insights into texts. I have particular experience tutoring young learners who speak English as a second language for GSCE and A-level English Literature.

Last but not least, I am also a corporate leadership coach, and have considerable expertise in confidence-building in the context of business and management. Through work on posture and intonation, I help clients create inspiring presentations which they are able to communicate accurately and with presence.

When teaching I thrive on creating experiences which are relevant and memorable for students. I aim to put them at ease and to tap their interests to facilitate learning while encouraging risk-taking in a safe environment.

A Top Class Teacher and Trainer

Theo worked at Flying Classrooms, Norwich Study Centre for over seven years.
He is an outstanding, caring teacher, who was able to deliver enjoyable, interactive lessons to students of all levels and with differing needs. He was also very good at teaching English for Specific Purposes such as Business or Tourism.
As well as teaching, Theo is an excellent Teacher Trainer and is particularly skilled in giving training in incorporating Drama techniques into teaching all subjects.
As a colleague he was flexible, considerate and a wonderful supportive presence in the staff room.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Theo for any teaching or training job.

Our family enjoyed Theo's lessons!

Theo started helping me with everyday English and also medical report writing and identifying my mistakes. I feel that my skills improved. My husbands English has also got better and we enjoyed long and interesting conversations and Theo's knowledge of literature, history and culture. Theo helped us to understand British culture better.
Theo was also teaching my 14-year-old son (Year 9) and his English and understanding of the school requirements are getting better. We feel confident recommending Theo and we are looking forward to our lessons when Theo will be visiting Norfolk!
