Hello, my name is Kevin and I am a freelance English teacher and experienced IELTS examiner and teacher (10 years).
I have over 15 years of English teaching experience including mostly business and academic English and have a CELTA certificate. I have also been an EIKEN, BULATS, TOEFL teacher and examiner.
I like to go surfing in summer and snowboarding in winter. I have traveled and lived in countries around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, France and Spain etc.
I wrote and published an IELTS test preparation guide book (currently Japanese only) and am studying a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (M.A. TESOL)
I am an expert in teaching the IELTS test and love helping people quickly improve their scores. Students tell me my lessons are always friendly and supportive, professional and clear.
