Feedback for this tutor
Hi, my name is Mark and I am a 47 year old professional ESL English teacher from London, England. I hold a TEFL certificate (English language teaching qualification) and an honors degree in Biochemistry.
Before I started teaching, I worked as a scientist/manager for GE (General Electric) Healthcare for 20 years. I then moved to SE Asia in 2009 where I have been teaching English online ever since.
I offer a range of skill building sessions including IELTS preparation, business English, interview preparation, general science, proofreading as well as general English conversation.
When I am not teaching, I like to travel around Asia and experience the many different and fascinating cultures that can be found in this part of the world.
Most of my lessons are very reasonably priced from 2,200 points for a 50 minute lesson and I have a fast and very reliable internet connection for clear calls and video messaging on Skype. I always type whatever we talk about in my lessons so you have a permanent transcript that you can refer to.
Please add me on Facebook to follow my updates:
Thanks for reading my profile and I hope to meet you soon!

***e.flymeupsohighI requested him to proof-read the document for an interview. Mark is very sincere; he concentrates on editing the manuscript and he always asks questions when my English is unclear, trying to reflect my thoughts onto English as precise as possible. Also, he was a fast-editor, and so we could cover all the materials I prepared for the lesson. I sincerely appreciate his professional attitude.PROOFREADING/EDITING (Skype) 50 2,500Jul 25, 2018
