- May 29, 2019 Important Changes to Schedule - Dear Students,Due to the recent increase in my workload I will only be available on Mondays and Fri...
My name is James and I am originally from Godalming in the South of England. If you have seen the Christmas film 'The Holiday', with Cameron Diaz and Jude Law, then you would have seen my small town in this movie.
I am currently living in Madrid, Spain. Previously, I was living in Paris (France) Warsaw(Poland) Barcelona (Spain) as well as in Rome (Italy).
I am a friendly, reliable and patient teacher who loves to meet new students and learn about their needs. I have experience teaching all ages and language levels. I first started teaching English as a qualified teacher in Sardinia (Italy) in early 2010 and then in Rome before moving to Valencia (Spain). Students of all language levels often acknowledge that they find I am very easy to understand and follow in conversations. I am a fully qualified teacher, having obtained the TESOL level 5 certificate in 2009.
I have a great passion for movies and in 2009 I graduated with a bachelor's degree in documentary film and television at the Newport Film school in Wales. Here is a link to one of the films I made on the course, it is about a street magician named Angelo, who is from Cyprus.
One of my greatest passions is travelling. I have been fortunate enough to travel all over North and South America as well as to Indonesia, Thailand Singapore and Malaysia. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to go to Japan yet, but I am sure one day this dream will become true.
I also enjoy watching and playing sports. My favourite sports are football and tennis but I enjoy most sports. However my interests are very varied and I can talk about most topics including politics, history, art, literature and any topical issues.
I can´t wait to meet my new students!

***ly_bighugI've been taking his lessons for a year, and I've been getting used to read BBC articles that used to be pretty challenging to me. His lessons are relaxing but very effective. He is an excellent listener and always try to understand what I am saying. He's very supportive and give me appropriate feedback.
