Обо мне

Hello!

My name is Mark Wood and I am from Cheshire in North West England. I am a qualified TEFL instructor (240 hour course), with a specialism in teaching English one-to-one and online. I am also a qualified modern languages teacher in the UK (ages 11-18), and my total teaching experience is now 7 years. I have taught English in France to students from the age of 5, all the way up to adult learners!

Having lived in France for 3 years, I know first hand the challenges and rewards that learning languages can bring. I have also taken up Spanish ab initio, and I am keen to expand my knowledge of different cultures and languages from around the world. Maybe you could teach me about where you come from and your own culture? I am a real lover of languages!

I enjoy travelling, cooking, keeping fit and active, playing board games, and football (that's soccer for you American English speakers!), to name but a few of my hobbies and interests.

My lessons will be customised to you. The content of our lessons will match your needs, whether that is English for business, general conversational English, speaking and listening practice, English for teachers, or even test preparation (TOEFL, IELTS). My lessons are based on the highly versatile and reputable Off2Class platform.

I am very flexible and I am experienced enough to adapt my teaching to your requirements. I prefer to teach fun lessons in a relaxed atmosphere, using a multi syllabus format. This approach ensures a balance between speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, while also prioritising your own areas of interest covering a wide range of topics.

You will have your own personalised syllabus to develop your English fluency. Before we start our lessons, I will email you an Off2Class placement test to determine your starting point, and to analyse your strengths and areas for development. It will be important to supplement your lesson time with extra activities to consolidate your learning. These homework activities will be essential for you to make the most out of your experience learning English.

So whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced user of English, feel free to book a trial lesson to begin the next step of your English journey.

See you soon!
