​About Make The Grade English

Hi, and thanks for coming by!



​My name is Paul, and I've been an English language teacher for people who need to learn English for their work or their life goals for more than 10 years now!

I love technology and how it can connect people, and I'm here to use the things I've learned help you with your English whatever your goals – in a calm, supportive and friendly way!

My work has included IELTS teaching and examining, Aviation English teaching and examining, writing teaching material for other teachers, writing tests that are used in more than 40 countries and producing websites for language learners.

When I'm not teaching or travelling, you can find me walking in the countryside with ​my camera, learning how to cook or watching Game of Thrones or a superhero movie.
