Hello. My name is Nick. I am British and I live in Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset. I am a teacher of English.

I'm a lower intermediate speaker of Japanese and a beginner in Korean.

After a career in the civil service in England, I travelled to New Zealand where I resided for 8 years. I attended university there and studied computer science at Massey University.

I worked for the civil service in New Zealand and then moved into the private sector where I gained experience in the technology market and the insurance industry.

In 1998, I resumed my education and took a CELTA course to pursue a dream of teaching English in Japan.

After gaining some experience in a conversation school in Saitama, I opened my own schools in Chiba and Tokyo and became a registered Japanese corporation.

I employed 10 Japanese support staff and several foreign teachers. I ran those schools for 16 years and taught hundreds of students of all ages and levels.
In 2014, I gained an additional TEFL certificate and also a studied a course on teaching online.

In 2014, I returned to the UK and continued teaching online.

Some of my students from Japan still study with me.

I have a passion for teaching and I feel a very strong connection to Japan.

I teach my classes entirely in English but if you are stuck I can also speak Japanese.

In 2017 I enrolled in medical school and I’m doing doctor/PhD programme and plan to specialise in oncology    

Although I have a busy teaching and study schedule, I like to watch movies in my downtime and also enjoy mountain biking, running and swimming.

I’m the author of the book Fluency Secrets and I’m writing some new books on English language study.

I do professional voiceovers and I’m just getting started in broadcasting.So you could say I like to keep busy.

I am offering English tutoring, either as structured lessons or conversational practice. We can study topics of your choice or I can construct guided lessons based on your level and goals.

My lessons make use of lots of different materials, such as videos, audio recordings, songs, articles and textbooks, so we can build all your skills.

I have experience teaching IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and EIKEN step tests.

I currently teach adults of all levels and kids both privately and in groups.

I can also help you with your writing.

I am very patient, and you can ask me all the questions you want, as many times as you want, until you understand very well.

Let me know what you need and how I can help you, and I will be here for you.

I will do my best to help you achieve your goals of becoming fluent in English.

I look forward to talking with you online,
