About Darren

I am an Australian citizen with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Behavioural Science from the Flinders University of South Australia. I am also TESOL certified, with specialist certificates in teaching One to One, teaching Business English and teaching children. I love talking to people and I love travel. I have been to England, Italy, Greece, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. I'm currently learning Thai, so I know what it's like to study another language and I understand the challenges you face in learning English. For the past 2 and a half years I have been teaching English in Thailand, full time at a primary school, and part time at a night school, as well as with private students. I am also experienced in teaching online, having taught dozens of students from all around the world.

My lessons are fun and are a mix of reading, writing, listening and speaking, with a focus on conversation, but I can tailor lessons to focus on any skills that you would like to improve. I have experience in teaching English at all levels and can teach from complete beginner to advanced levels. I have taught students of all ages - from children through to adults, in both classroom and 1 to 1 settings. I have taught courses on Australian English, business English, English for restaurants and hotels, public speaking, English for advertising, English for tourism jobs, English for travel and also exam preparation, including TOEFL and IELTS.

I can focus lessons on any specific needs that you have or topics that you are interested in. My classes will be tailored to suit your needs. I think one of the most important factors in communication is confidence and I believe it is my job to help you to build your confidence in English conversation, which is what I will do. I have a very flexible schedule so please feel free to contact me to discuss how I can help you! I look forward to talking to you and to helping you on your path to speaking better English
