School Teacher


I am a native born British citizen who has studied at a Public school in England where I achieved three A levels in English Literature, Geography and Politics and Economics; from there I went on to achieve my BA Honours Degree in English Literature and Philosophy from Leeds University. I also have a TEFL certificate so can teach ESL as I have been doing in the Middle East.
I have been teaching English through much of my teaching experience either as a first or second language, and when as a first, to IGCSE and A level, with Literature in both cases. I received excellent grades with A's predominating at IGCSE, and above C grade at A level.
I have been Head of the English Department in two of the schools that I worked. That was Greensteds International School where I taught the subject as a first language up to IGCSE and A level, and the second was the International Academy of Kuwait where I again was Head of Department over four other teachers and taught it at both first and second language, up to IGCSE and AS level. I have held the two positions for some six years between the two schools. In Hays Al Sharooq School I organized the curriculum up to Year 12 and taught it as an ESL subject on top of my main position there as Head of Business Studies up to A level and teacher of Year 9 Geography.
I was Headmaster of a school in Kenya for four years in which I established for young Kenyan Grown up students, who had finished their local A levels, a Foundation Year program. This was designed to take the place of the British University Foundation year which they would have to have participated in whatever British University that they chose to attend before being allowed to go onto the Bachelors course that they wished to do; at a minimal cost, so that their parents could establish the required funds for the main University course. I lectured the Business Studies students during this time in Business English lessons.Having been a trainee Accountant and studied the UK Accou
