Saudi Arabia

Bio: I am currently managing/teaching on an English language project at the Saudi Arabian National Guard in Riyadh. In the past I spent 3 years teaching English in Turkey, consisting of 2 years teaching Traditional Method English at a school of some 1,000 mixed teenaged students in Eskişehir; then a 6 month stint teaching police officers and even a judge as well as regular students at a private English language school in Turkey’s capital Ankara, before spending a further 6 months teaching at a university near Mersin. Afterwards, I worked in Warsaw, Poland for a couple of years teaching both the Callan Method of direct English and Business English. Later, I was to spend almost 3 years teaching in Mataro, Spain where I perfected the art of teaching the Callan Method . Then I enjoyed a spell at Great Chapel College in central London working as Principal. Following a position as both Director and Principal of a well-known Business College in London, I held educational/student recruitment seminars and events in the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan and Thailand. I went on to work as Project Manager of the English Language Unit at Al Baha University in the Saraat Mountains, Saudi Arabia where I was responsible for some 6,000 English language students from Business, Medical, Engineering, Arts and Science faculties as well as 150 English language lecturers across 8 branches of the university, dotted across some extremely rugged mountainous terrain. Before that, I worked in Riyadh for a year teaching English to students on the King's Scholarship Program and I also taught English to Imams from Riyadh’s vast Islamic university. As for now, I have returned from 6 months in Guadalajara, Mexico where I taught English at local businesses in and around Zapopan – my previous employer in Riyadh then flew me all the way back to Saudi Arabia to take up the Project Manager’s role again at Al Baha University.
