Tom is a TEFL qualified English teacher who has taught in Italy and Ukraine. He teaches because he finds it very fulfilling to be able to teach somebody a new skill that will aid them in their future. Tom has a background in science; he holds Chemistry degree from Edinburgh University and has experience working in industry that will hopefully be useful for students wishing to practice business English. He recognises that there is a distinct difference between written and spoken English and wants to help his students become better at understanding and using English verbally. Tom is friendly and approachable and can tailor lessons to his students’ interests and needs. Tom enjoys travelling and engaging in different cultures. He can speak a bit of French and a few words in Italian and Russian. Tom is currently studying for a Masters Degree and therefore can be flexible when arranging lessons.
