Tim Murphy's Full Profile
I have a friendly and calm manner, with a good sense of humour and make lessons focused but fun. I get to know my students needs in learning English, and tailor their courses so they receive lessons which will help them improve in the areas they want and need to most. I form good relationships with all my students, getting to know them individually and building a rapport which strengthens the learning process. I am a very positive teacher and praise and encourage students to help them achieve success in what is a challenging situation for them. Most of the students I teach are in business. The lessons I deliver will have a combination of new grammar and vocabulary in a particular aspect of business, eg selling, entertaining, performance, new ideas, future trends, time, training and careers. Particular focuses include emailing at work, presentations, meetings, telephone conferencing and other phone calls. I have also taught courses in specific subjects such as Logistics. There are exercises in reading, writing, speaking and listening. The lesson will culminate in a free speaking exercise. Homework will consolidate learning from the most recent lesson, and focus on improving reading and writing skills. All students are adults and are treated as such. I have a great respect for each students' work/life balance and try to maximise learning while taking their circumstances into account. I am very flexible in changing days and times of lessons where possible if this is required.
My name is Tim Murphy, I am 52 years old and I live in Birmingham England. I have 2 grown-up daughters. I enjoy walking, reading, films, music and sport.
