With 20 years of teaching experience, John has worked in both language centres and international schools, with students ranging from upper primary age to adults. He has also taught Business English and Presentation Skills, having worked briefly in both the travel industry and the financial markets.
John enjoys interacting with his students and challenging them to become pro-active learners and informed “consumers.” He believes that for long-lasting learning to take place, students must be engaged affectively. Thus, John endeavours to conduct lessons in ways that draw out the students’ own life experiences and existing reservoir of personal and cultural knowledge.
