Bio

Hello,

I'm Daniel, a 35-year old English tutor from England.

TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-accredited, I spent 2011 working as an English Language Teacher in southern China at a specialist English school, teaching a range of ages and abilities from complete beginners to near-fluent, advanced students. I gave one-on-one tutorials, web-seminars, business English lessons and weekly lectures on language points. Prior to college, I also spent 6 months teaching in a high school in...

Hello,

I'm Daniel, a 35-year old English tutor from England.

TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)-accredited, I spent 2011 working as an English Language Teacher in southern China at a specialist English school, teaching a range of ages and abilities from complete beginners to near-fluent, advanced students. I gave one-on-one tutorials, web-seminars, business English lessons and weekly lectures on language points. Prior to college, I also spent 6 months teaching in a high school in northern Thailand.

I have a first-class (equivalent GPA 4.0/4.0) Bachelors degree in Politics & Modern History from the University of Manchester (ranked 11th in Europe) and a Masters degree in International Public Policy from University College London (ranked 5th in Europe), so I am also able to provide tuition in the fields of history and politics. I also have A-levels (end of UK high school exams) in English Literature, Politics and German.

I'm also a qualified soccer coach with the USSF "E" License, currently teaching elementary school children in East Harlem, as well as a chess tutor who's taught the fundamentals and some basic strategy to beginners.

If you or someone you know would like to be tutored by a friendly, experienced and enthusiastic British tutor, please don't hesitate to contact me through Wyzant.

Best wishes,
Daniel
