English teacher and teacher-trainer
Hi! My name's Giles Parker. By way of a brief resume, I'm a dynamic EFL and ESL classroom teacher, a CELTA-qualified teacher-trainer, and an academic manager - which is like herding cats. I have 28 years teaching, training and managing experience in the UK, Asia, the USA, and now Italy, where I am based. I especially love the day-to-day teaching of academic composition and academic presentation for EFL and ESL students who usually have such low expectations at first but who are blown away when their writing dramatically improves, as it usually does. Another passion I have is for training and mentoring new EFL and ESL teachers. It is great to watch new teachers create better and better lessons for their students. I hope this gives you an idea of what I'm about. I also hope you like these online teacher-training videos. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions on how they can be improved. Ciao! Giles.
