Hi, my name is Charlie. I've been a teacher and teacher trainer at International House Bristol since 2003. Recently, I've started teaching on the Cambridge CELTA courses that we are now running.
In my classes, I like trying to find out about my students, their interests and their needs and then designing lessons that give each class member something important. I also spend quite a bit of time developing new class materials for our junior summer programmes. In class, I am particularly interested in using authentic texts and making use of the Internet.
In my free time, I spend quite a lot of time at the gym and generally trying to get a bit fitter.
I'm also keen on photography and sometimes I run English and photography courses and night photography evenings for the school social programme.
