Tell us about you!
“I started my first degree at the University of Salford, England in French, Russian and Italian, but dropped out after 2 years, travelled overland to India and ended up in Australia. There I met my wife, and after 2 years, went back to England with her. I trained as a high school English and Drama teacher at Exeter University and during my course started to teach English over the summer holidays to students, mostly from Iceland. So began my career as an EFL teacher – I never taught in high schools. I completed a Diploma in English teaching in 1983 and then, after 15 years at language schools in England and Italy, I studied for a Masters in TTELT – teacher training – and worked for 6 years at the University of Plymouth with teachers and trainee teachers from Eritrea, Japan, Malaysia and many other countries. In 1989 we returned with our 5 children to Australia where I worked as an EFL teacher and trained as an IELTS examiner. After 5 years I was offered a position managing IELTS tests on test days and the examiners and staff needed to run these tests. 12 years later I began spending more time in Viet Nam and from 2018 started online teaching with E2Language. I now live in Hoi An with my wife Linda, 4 dogs and one cat andI help run an NGO which supports girls and young women to complete their education.”
What our students say about Graeme
These are some of the amazing responses we received for our E2Expert Graeme.
|Ashish Sahni||Dear Graeme, I wanted to thank you for giving me guidance on how I can improve my speaking skills. Thank you so much. Regards, Ashish|
|Amit Yeralkar||I really appreciate your guidance and the knowledge you share. Your method of teaching makes learning much easier. I have taken my IELTS General before and scored S-8.5, L-8, R-6.5, W-6. I need a much better score but was unsure of how to achieve it. My confidence levels were at their lowest point and I had no clue and sense of direction. Then I stumbled upon E2 on Youtube and found the information very helpful. Now that I have registered and attended the online classes, I feel a lot more confident on achieving my target score of 8+ on all four parameters. A big thank you to Graeme since most classes I attended were taken by him. I would also take this opportunity to thank all the teachers at E2 for the wonderful job they are doing. Thank you.|
|Williams Ike||Dear Graeme,

I remember that last year I booked a tutorial with you, unfortunately I was not well prepared prior the tutorial however; you kindly re-scheduled it without charge. That to me was an evidence of the kind of person and tutor you are. I will never forget it.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and strategies to improve my English skills in a very professional way. I really have learnt so much from you.

I have huge respect for you and the other teachers who are helping the non-native English speakers to achieve their dreams in a short period of time.
