About Danny teacher since Feb 27, 2020

I’m a native English speaking teacher from Britain who has recently returned, with my family, from working in Russia, where I spent over 7 years. I have two young boys who entertain me whenever I’m not working. I enjoy travel, sports and reading. Whilst living in Russia I learnt Russian to an intermediate level, this skill helps me to better understand the problems that learners have, and to therefore overcome these problems.

Me as a Teacher

I’ve been working as a teacher since 2010, I hold a CELTA qualification. Due to my experience as a teacher I have the answer to almost any question that you might have about English. I’ve spent most of my teaching career in Russia, however, since late 2019 I have been back in the UK, much of the time working at the University of Leeds teaching English for Academic Purposes, preparing international students to start a Master’s programme. In 2020 I have also been studying, and I now hold DELTA Module 1.

My Lessons & Teaching Style

I’m an open, friendly teacher, I try to ensure that there’s a combination of grammar, vocabulary and conversations in my lessons, to improve both fluency and accuracy.
