Mark (Cambridge Delta) 「マーク」

IELTS の先生、イギリスから

  • Hello everyone!

    I was born and grew up in the South East of England, not far from London. I have been living in Osaka with my wife and two children since 1999.

    I studied History at Durham University and then trained as a Primary (Elementary) school teacher. After this I decided that I would like to teach overseas, which I have been doing since then. Most of my English teaching experience has been in Japan including 10 years with Tony B at the British Council Osaka Centre. I also have a Cambridge Celta qualification and have completed Module 1 of the Cambridge Delta, and plan to complete the study in 2016.

    In addition to teaching adults, I love teaching children and I also have a special interest in IELTS. Whatever level or age I am teaching, I think it’s important to create a relaxed atmosphere in the classroom and have some fun. But I also think that to learn a language you need to use the language, so in all my classes I try to give students opportunities to use English in a meaningful way.

    When I have some free time I enjoy playing with my daughters. I also like reading books about travel and history as well as books about Japan.

    My tip for learning English successfully is to take opportunities to use new grammar and vocabulary. Don’t worry too much about making mistakes – mistakes are important for your learning!

  • 皆さん、こんにちは!


    私はダラム大学で歴史を専攻後、小学校教師の資格を取りました。その後は海外で教えてみたいと思い立ち、現在に至ります。英語教師としての私の経験はほぼすべて日本で得たもので、Tony Bと一緒にブリティッシュカウンシル大阪センターで教えていた10年間もここに含まれます。私の保有資格はケンブリッジCelta[英国ケンブリッジ大学認定の英語教授資格]と最近合格したケンブリッジDeltaのモジュール1で、2016年中には残りのモジュールも取得予定です。
