* Hello! My name is Richard Owen. I am from Wales, in the UK, where I now live. I have been teaching English for over 25 years in various places around the world, including Portugal, Japan, Spain, Thailand and the UK. In my last position, I was the Senior Teacher at a language school in the north of Portugal, where I remained for 9 years. My responsibilities included observing, training and mentoring other teachers, as well as general teaching duties. I am experienced in teaching students of all ages, from kindergarten and primary through to high school, university and adult professionals. I have regularly prepared students for exams, including Trinity and Cambridge, such as KET (A2-level), PET (B1-level), FCE (B2-level) and CAE (C1-level), as well as the Starters, Movers and Flyers exams for younger learners.
* My qualifications include a BSc.(Hons.)in Botany/Zoology (University of Wales) plus the University of Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). I also hold a current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Certificate.
* My teaching approach is student-centred and communicative, where learning is a positive experience in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. All my students are encouraged to speak as much as possible to increase fluency. Professionalism, patience and a good sense of humour guaranteed!
* All lesson materials are provided free of charge. I teach, via Zoom, using a mixture of coursebook material (provided before class), whiteboard presentations, listening activities, video clips and general speaking practice. You will need to have a laptop, set of headphones with mic., good internet connection and Zoom account.
* There is a 25-minute Introductory Lesson (£3). This will provide an opportunity to get to know one another, build a rapport and allow me to accurately assess your level of English. Following this, if all is satisfactory, you will hopefully be happy to sign up for a course of on-going lessons.
