Introduction:

Hello,
My name is Simon Tall and I come from London, England.

I have been teaching English language to adults for the past 7 years in Saudi Arabia and Thailand.

In Saudi Arabia, I taught beginner English to IELTS preparation to the military.

In Thailand I taught corporate English to businesses in Bangkok.

I have knowledge and experience in teaching IELTS, especially speaking practice as well as Technical English, Business English, Presentation skills and English for job interviews .
