I first started teaching English in 2005 after a successful career in the Oil & Gas industry. My first job was in an English school in Libya, teaching young adults to prepare for university or their first jobs. I went from Libya to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan. In all my travels, I met many thousands of people wishing to learn English and made many, many new friends! I was also very lucky to visit new countries and learn about their culture and history.
