Introduction:

I teach general English, conversation and business English with a special focus on pronunciation.

My name’s Mark, I enjoy painting, urban sketching, music and mountain biking.

I have been teaching English as a foreign language for more than twelve years and over the course of my English teaching career I have taught at primary schools, secondary schools as well as high schools and private language centres.

I teach students of different age groups with different educational backgrounds and have also taught at hospitals, the Royal Thai Army and the Ministry of Education in Bangkok.

I am CELTA qualified and also hold a certificate in ‘How to teach IELTS’, I specialise not just in teaching general English but also business English and medical English with a focus on pronunciation and fluency.

Teaching Specialty:

Business English Basics › General

I have worked in both sales and consulting environments and teach from experience as well as using materials developed from well known business English books.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I love to teach phonics. I have been teaching phonics and pronunciation for the best of 12 years and know the phonemic chart like the back of my hand!You will learn by example and fun activities to help you remember.

Everyday English › Free Conversation

It's always great to meet students who love to chat because so do I but don't worry I'm also a big listener, unless it's about football! I'm only joking, you can tell me why you love it and I can tell you why I don't. Just talk to me like I'm your friend. and I'm sure we will get along great.

Everyday English › Situational Conversation

Whether it be travelling or in a shop, I can teach students English for all everyday situations. With over 12 years experience in teaching English conversation I have lesson plans for most situations.

Everyday English › General

I teach general English for every day conversation giving students the building blocks they need to move onto learning English for everyday situations using resources acquired over 12 years of teaching as well as PowerPoint.
