I want my lessons to be as entertaining as they are informative. I teach some students to obtain formal qualifications. I teach some students just for fun. To laugh and to learn is the ideal.
I will let my students speak for me. Aleksandra Wypijewska: Lessons with Terry are an adventure. It's a challenge. It's development. It's an intellectual journey. Everything you need to be fluent in English and much more than grammar exercises. Anna Maria Majchrzak-Sobanska : .A bit of history, humour, film and music helps a lot to overcome the difficulties of the English language. This real Londoner patiently teaches the English you need. Svetlana Bendra: I really appreciate that he is asking always about my preferences regarding upcoming lessons, and he is adjusting the lessons in a way to make them interesting and productive. Agnieszka Radymiak: I recommended him to 5 of my friends and they all were very satisfied and only spoke highly about him.
Since 2017, I've been an English language tutor to eastern European staff of Amazon, under contract to Language Trainers. Before that, I was a journalist and TV producer in a career spanning 40 years. I worked for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and the French/German cultural channel Arte. I was also a print journalist for weekly and daily regional papers in the UK. At the peak of my career, I worked for BBC Panorama, the BBC's business series the Money Programme, and BBC World.
