I’m Adam. I’m a teacher who loves to learn and create. My mission is to help learners to advance their communicative skills, build their confidence, and develop as both students and citizens in a global society.


Cambridge DELTA The Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, accredited by Cambridge Assessment English, provided a valuable opportunity to develop and refine my skills and knowledge in the field of English-language teaching.

Trinity Cert TESOL  My initial teaching qualification was the Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, accredited by Trinity College London. Equivalent to the Cambridge CELTA, this intensive course provided me with hands-on teaching experience from day one.

BA (Hons) Political Science My time reading Political Science at the University of Birmingham provided me with a solid foundation of analytical and evaluative skills. Study modules covered such topics as political philosophy, international relations, and contemporary issues affecting international security.


After graduating in 2010, I began work as a clerk in the legal industry at No5 Barristers Chambers. Working in a fast-paced environment, I spent the next five years developing my communication skills and gaining priceless life experience in this role.

Seeking different opportunities and pastures new, in 2016 I trained as an English teacher. I spent the next few years teaching on a range of short to mid-term contracts in several European locations for such international education companies as EF Education First and International House.

Since 2018, I have taught in several EAP roles. This has included teaching on a 'Global English' programme at the University of Kanagawa, Japan, as well as teaching on three pre-sessional programmes (2019 - 2021) for the University of Birmingham, where I continue to teach on a Foundation Programme.
