Country: the United Kingdom
Teaching Experience: 12 years
Education: TEFL certificate, BA in Geography/Geo-Politics — Leicester University
My name is Gerard Light and I am 49 years old from the United Kingdom.
I have traveled all my life and I was born in Cyprus and grew up as a boy in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I spent my teenage years in Germany at secondary and grammar schools and as a result, I am also a native speaker of German.
I studied Geography and Geopolitics at Leicester University in England and Utrecht University in the Netherlands (My Japanese professor was from Tokyo University). I was an international banker and money broker, having worked in the City of London, Wall Street and Frankfurt am Main in Germany.
I have 12 years of teaching experience to students of all ages including IELTS and business English, including Saudi Arabia, China, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Vietnam – therefore an international outlook comes naturally to me.
I have excellent leadership and organisational skills, I am friendly and good at building rapport with students and people from all over the World.
I can help you in conversational English, IELTS, exam preparation, business English, grammar, and whatever you require from me.
Let us discuss your requirements and your language ability and I will prepare a lesson based on your exact requests. I am well educated and well spoken (the real English way) and hope to help you achieve your goals in life.
My teaching principles are based on the communicative approach which means the student should whenever possible talk the most.
I hope to see and speak to you soon and help you achieve excellence in your desired goals.
