Hi, I am William and I am Director of Studies here at Global English TESOL Courses. I came to Global English in 1996 after several years in English teaching in Mexico, Portugal and the UK.
At Global English TESOL we specialise in helping people get started on their teaching careers and we also provide professional development courses for already qualified teachers. I really enjoy writing materials and during the first COVID lockdown I developed the Spotlight Live TESOL series, where we have put together some short Zoom-based courses to focus on more specific areas of teaching. I am also lead tutor, meaning that I get to talk to a lot of students every day about their courses, which is the most enjoyable part of my job.
It is very important to keep up to date with the latest developments in TEFL. I review TESOL websites and material sent by publishers to make sure that our course content is current and relevant. I live in England now and I must admit that I miss the long hot days of the Mediterranean summers teaching English in Portugal! But there is a great deal of pleasure to be had in knowing that through the courses I mark I am helping others to enjoy similar experiences to mine, as GE graduates travel far and wide to start teaching.
In my free time I enjoy walking our family dog, Star, around the Devon countryside and spending time with my family.
