About Me
italki teacher since Feb 14, 2022
Hi! Thanks for looking at my profile! I'm a native English speaker from London, England. I have a Masters degree in International Relations from Cambridge University and I've worked for a number of years as a diplomat and international trade negotiator for the British government. I've lived in countries all over the world (including China, Russia, Italy, and others). I love learning new languages and, even more, I love helping other people to learn English! My interests include international politics, history and economics, as well as world cinema and literature.

Hugh is an incredibly kind teacher. No matter what level you are at, he will work with you and help you to find your way to learning this language. And, he is one of the best tutors that I’ve encountered. Before him, I was struggling with my English speaking and writing as they were my weaker parts. One day I found him, and it changed my life forever. He is extremely patient and professional at all times. He helped me reach further since I started lessons on Italki. He will change your relationship with English.

It has been one and half month since I started having conversation practices with Hugh on a weekly basis. It is incredible but I feel already much more confident than before in using English in my everyday life (both at work and privately). Hugh's knowledge and his analytical skills are very impressive. We discussed topics relating for example to Culture, International Relationships, Psychology, History and Linguistics. The articles and videos that he choses for each lesson are of excellent quality and really stimulating. Every week I am literally looking forward to our next discussion. So, I recommend him very much.
