I am an experienced and qualified English teacher with considerable experience teaching general English to all levels, as well as success teaching the OET exam to students from many different countries around the world. I started teaching several years ago whilst living abroad and thoroughly enjoy my work.
The rewarding nature of teaching and the positive effects a teacher can have on students is the most enjoyable part of teaching.
I am adaptable in my teaching methods and like using both modern and traditional ways of teaching. The best aspect of my work is seeing students improve their English skills and obtain the results they desire.
I like travelling, sports and learning about new languages and cultures. I’m native English and can help you immensely with your pronunciation as well as guide you through what to expect from the OET exam every step of the way. Most importantly I can teach you how to approach this test with confidence.
I sincerely hope you enjoy your course as much as I enjoy teaching it.

My name is Trevor Gordon. I am from Northampton in England, and I now reside in Dumaguete, in The Philippines. I have been a teacher for 11 years, and was formerly a classroom teacher for mostly Asian students before turning my attention to exam preparation tutoring.
I was formerly an IT engineer for more than 20 years and worked for multi-national companies such as Shell Oil, Cable & Wireless, AT&T, and JP MorganChase. I also maintain the site you use, as I still like to be involved in IT.
In my free time I like scuba-diving and keeping fit. I also like tennis, computers, web-design, playing the guitar, and big motorbikes.
I am also Cambridge FCE, and CAE certified, as well as IELTS certified.
Having been fortunate enough to born a native English speaker I realise how difficult the language can be for learners which is why the learning methods provided to students have to be such that they can absorb the language and the techniques, and not be overwhelmed. I believe that I can bring out the best in students and I have many satisfied students who are a testament to my skills.
Having family who have been, and are in the medical profession, has given me some insight into the importance of the work, and the dedication of the people who do it.
