Perera - EAP Tutor and English Language Teacher - London, England, UK

Karl Perera

London, England, UK


I help others realize that inside each of us there is a unique person full of potential. My message is one that inspires and motivates.

I have been running two self help websites about self esteem and depression for over twelve years.

My self esteem test has featured in many global university syllabuses and used by counselors worldwide.

My goals are to help as many people as possible via the internet and in person. I want to create my own products and help people to improve themselves.

My teaching experience includes as an english Instructor at Izmir University of Economics and at Durham University,UK.
