Rory Tutor Profile

This tutor is currently on leave.
I have taught English in ten countries and am a keen traveller and have wriiten 13 books about my travels and illustrated them with my photographs.

I also play music as a hobby and enjoy both folk and classical culture and good food and follow all kinds of sport.

I like to absorb myself in the language and culture of the places that I visit and work in and I am optimistic and have a good sense of humour.

Concerning my classes, they are fun, structured and informative and I have a range of classes that I offer for all levels of students.

I was an accredited IELTS examiner for Speaking and Writing for more than 20 years and can offer tips and advice on how to improve your IELTS scores from the point of view of an examiner.

I have designed speaking and writing courses using TED Talks and have some great resources to share with my students that will be both interesting and practical. 

I have a course on presentation skills with links to practical and inspiring resources.

I can offer general discussions based on topics of interest to students for the purpose of fluency practice and vocabulary extension.

I have a course on managing your finances.

A popular class is cooking and eating out.

I have a class on Music, Films and Books, where we discuss different genres and our favourites.

I also like to take photographs and offer a course on photo appreciation and description.

I have travelled to over 40 countries, but more importantly, I have lived in 11 countries for extended periods of time (over one year), so I have both cultual curiousity and cultural awareness and look forward to meeting you in my classes. I still have not visited Japan but it is at the top of my list of places to see.
