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!

***ikoI requested this lesson since I wanted to learn about understatement. James taught me its concept, people's attitudes behind it, and typical situations and phrases relating to it. We examined some examples together and also compared our cultures regarding this aspect. The lesson was conversational and I had enough opportunities to talk and ask questions. It was a very informative and enjoyable lesson.British Culture Lesson 50 2,300Jun 19, 2018

***_SI took a 15-min level check to see my English proficiency. James is an experienced teacher with whom it is fun to talk, very professional about analyzing what elements are lacked from my speaking English and give the information in a effective way. I highly recommend to take James' lesson! Thank you James! I had a great lesson!15-minute Level Check 15 700Jun 8, 2018
***aAncheta私が話すので発音と文法を訂正して欲しいとお願いしました。時折講師の質問を交えてあっという間に時間が過ぎてしまいました。自分でも前置詞が弱いと自覚しているのであやふやな所は上手く誤魔化したつもりでしたがさすがプロですね、きっちり聞き取られて訂正されました。私は英語を話す環境にいるのですがそう言うところに長くいると明らかな間違いをしない限り誰も英語を直してくれません。ですからジェームズ先生とのレッスンは楽しいだけでなくとても勉強になります。ありがとうございました！！！30 Minute English Chat! 30 1,400Jun 7, 2018
