Meet Alex – one of the tutors who run our accredited TEFL courses in the UK. All of our tutors are highly qualified and have at least three years of TEFL experience abroad, meaning they know exactly what’s it like to start a new career teaching English abroad.
Check out the TEFL course reviews below to see what the students think!
“I’m from London and have taught for a few years in Spain.
I enjoy teaching because of the wide variety of people you meet every day, the fact that I’m not stuck behind a desk all day, the camaraderie of the other teachers, and the ability to give up everything, pack a suitcase and disappear off to any country I fancy at the drop of a hat, knowing I can get a job there. I enjoy training as it’s great to teach people who understand everything you say now and then(!), and having had such a fantastic time living in Spain love the fact that I can help people do the same.
I love travelling – I’ve been to India, Cuba, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Morocco, Egypt and most of Europe. In fact it’s my dream to have a stamp in my passport from every country before I’m old and grey! I love films, my favourites being Goodfellas, The Big Lebowski and The Bourne Trilogy. I love all things about Spain, even their fanatacism about football. I don’t really have any hobbies (apart from films and travelling) but I like to do something extreme once in a while. So far, I have done skydiving, bunjee-jumping, taken flying lessons and cage dived with Great Whites.”
