Hi guys! My name is Umar, I am a native english speaker (British national) so I was born and bred in London, UK. Before I qualified as a teacher, I used to work as a consultant for 4 years working in an office in central London. After working as a consultant for 4 years I realised I needed something more stimulating……….so I became a teacher!
In my spare time, I like to work out and play sports. My favourite sport is boxing which I follow very closely and passionately. I am also a fan of technology and have assembled various types of computers in the past for friends & family.
Me as a Teacher
I have a bachelor’s degree from the University of London and a CELTA teaching qualification which I obtained in 2016. Throughout my years of teaching, I have had the opportunity to strengthen, adapt and refine my teaching skills. As a result, I would describe myself as a kind, patient yet motivated teacher.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced level student, I will adapt to your learning style and cater to your specific needs. I also have experience working within a business environment, so I can help you improve your business english if that is what you are looking for.
My lessons & teaching style
In my lessons I will make use of good textbooks (not the boring ones!), games, quizzes and assignments. I will also make my own exercises and tasks to cater to your needs. Over the course of learning with me, I will analyse your learning style & ability.
Whether you like reading, writing, listening or speaking the best (or the least!). I will then tell you your strengths & weaknesses with grammar, vocabulary, speaking & pronunciation. Along with this, I will adapt my lessons according to how you like to learn so that you can improve your english in the best way possible. If you decide to sign up to my lessons, you will not be disappointed.

I enjoyed a good lesson with Umer and was very interactive with two practical use cases about meetings and how to conduct them and main expressions for different contexts and situations.

Umar is a very good teacher, he is able to explain all douts and he give additional material every class. This is nice, because I can learn during the class, review later and study new things.
