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. http://vimeo.com/groups/dft/videos/5234396
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!

***u.Tとっても内容の濃い50分でした。言い間違いはレッスン後に詳しくタイピングしてフィードバックをしてもらえるので、自分が話した間違いを客観的に見ることができます。話しているときは気づかなかったことが、文字にして見てみると簡単な文法のミスにも自分で気がつくことができます。 あと、たくさん褒めてもらえるのでやる気が出ます！笑50 minute English Chat! 50 2,300Aug 14, 2018
***d５０分のフリートークレッスンを受けました。いつもの様にしっかりフィードバックしていただきました。熱心で、しかも緊張せず受けられるJames先生のレッスンを今日も楽しみました。どうもありがとうございます。50 minute English Chat! 50 2,300Aug 9, 2018
***u.T30分の体験レッスンを受講しました。間違えた文法、発音をその都度細かく指摘してくれます。 発音は、チャットに発音記号を書いてくれるので、復習するときにとても助かると思います。 自分の間違いに気付きながらレッスンが進んでいき、レッスンの最後でまとめてフィードバックをしてもらえたので、ただ話をするだけでは終わらないとっても充実したレッスンでした。しっかりマンツーマンで文法、スピーキングのスキルをあげたい人にはぴったりのレッスンだと思います！！Breaking News English 50 TrialAug 7, 2018
***3000James老师挺热情的，他会引导我去进行一些沟通，仔细我的发音问题和语法问题并去纠正我，并且很幸运的是他也有教我现在学习的语法书Essential Grammar in Use，这是一本我觉得很不错的学习语法的书，向各位推荐。他跟我说如果有什么问题可以在课后向他请教，所以我觉得James老师真的非常棒。15-minute Level Check 15 700Aug 5, 2018
