Hi, my name is Mark and I am a 47 year old professional ESL English teacher from London, England. I hold a TEFL certificate (English language teaching qualification) and an honors degree in Biochemistry.
Before I started teaching, I worked as a scientist/manager for GE (General Electric) Healthcare for 20 years. I then moved to SE Asia in 2009 where I have been teaching English online ever since.
I offer a range of skill building sessions including IELTS preparation, business English, interview preparation, general science, proofreading as well as general English conversation.
When I am not teaching, I like to travel around Asia and experience the many different and fascinating cultures that can be found in this part of the world.
Most of my lessons are very reasonably priced from 2,200 points for a 50 minute lesson and I have a fast and very reliable internet connection for clear calls and video messaging on Skype. I always type whatever we talk about in my lessons so you have a permanent transcript that you can refer to.
Please add me on Facebook to follow my updates:
Thanks for reading my profile and I hope to meet you soon!

Feedback from students
Thank you for your great help! I'm glad to see my English writing is corrected to a beautiful and easy-to-understand English article as always. Looking forward to talking to you next time!
Today's lesson is very useful. Thank you.
３回目を受けました。しっかり改善点を提示してくださり、質問にも親切に答えてくれました。自分にとってはまだネイティブの先生とレッスンするのは本当は早いかな、とも思うのですが、チャレンジさせて頂いています。こちらの多い間違いにも忍耐強く意図を汲んで、細かくチェックしてくださいました。イギリス人の方に見てもらい、何を言いたいのか、きちんと確認しながら自然な英語に直してもらうという貴重な機会に先生とCafetalkに感謝しています。ありがとうございました。中級か上級で、英文法の基礎が出来ている方がよりネイティブに近い表現や語彙を学んで飛躍するためには効果的で良いレッスンなのかなと、若輩者の見解ですが、そう思いました。 I appriciate teacher's corrections and advices very much. Thank you again and see you.
He has been support me with big patient. Thank you Mark.
I appreciate your generous corrections. Have a nice day.
