Hi, I’m Andy. I grew up in different parts of the north of England before settling in Newcastle, where I worked as an accountant. However, my desire to travel and an interest in Asia led me to change career and become an English teacher. I taught in Japan for two years, came to Vietnam in 1999… and stayed! During 18 years in language education, I have taught a wide range of students and levels from kindergarten kids to business executives. Since 2009, I have specialized in Academic English and IELTS preparation with ACET. I see myself as an ‘English coach’. By this I mean, I equip my students with the skills and strategies they need to perform at their best in their examinations. I also help them to discover their own potential so they can continue to develop in their future studies and career.
