Mr Simon Henderson,
I am an experienced TEFL/ESL teacher having taught a broad range of ages, topics and class levels.
A fun-loving people-person who is a thoughtful and thorough individual with a good eye for detail. Much of my work experience over the years has been in running my own businesses, requiring me to learn new skills, overcome challenges and adapt to new situations. Although my teaching experience is spaced out over a number of years, I have returned to teaching again and again as I enjoy the connection with my students, and love to see them progress and improve. My approach is to utilize my native English speaker status to encourage my students to speak more and develop their confidence!

I have a bit of a Geek-streak, which helps me really want to get inside and understand what I am teaching, so that I can convey the full depth and function of the language to my students. I also have a broad range of interests which I endeavour to bring to my lesson planning, so that I can do my best to include all of my students in each lesson. As part of my Geek-streak I love technology and multi-media and like to bring these into my lessons where appropriate.
