I am a current senior teacher at a leading language school in Sydney. We usually have students in the age range of 18 to 30, but I have taught students up to the age of 80. I have 5 years experience teaching students from all around the world here in Sydney and also 4 years experience teaching monolingual classes in Madrid, Spain.

If you are a Spanish speaker looking for a native who can also speak Spanish to explain things, I am more than happy to include translation activities and vocabulary in the classes.

My teaching method is communicative, task based, and with a strong focus on a lexical syllabus. I can adapt my style to students´ needs.

I am a native English speaker originally from Cambridge, England with experience teaching monolingual classes in Madrid, Spain and multilingual classes in Sydney, Australia. I also have a C1 level of Spanish.

My areas of expertise are in:

- Business English
- FCE/CAE & IELTS - targeted training for exam success. Develop the skills you need to achieve your desired score! I have passed hundreds of students in these exams.
- Grammar

Benji is just fantastic. By far the best English teacher I have had the pleasure of taking classes in Australia.

He was my teacher on a three-month Cambridge Advanced preparation course.

You can see that he really loves teaching and does it with great pleasure, always paying attention if the student really understood and solving all his doubts.

He knows how to teach very well, and his teaching style is very good. I highly recommend him! A great professional, a great teacher!

It’s easy to talk about Benji, because I’m sure he’s the best English teacher I’ve ever have in my whole life. Having just finished my Cambrige Examination Preparation - FCE and CAE - Intermediate to Advanced course with Benji, it’s remarkable how I could improve my English skills in the last months and how this language has become clearer and easier in my mind. All this was possible because he‘s a teacher who is highly skilled to teach all levels of English, especially higher ones, and he always works hard to push his students to achieve them goals.
Benji is absolutely efficient and dedicated, and the type of teacher who teaches his students to think about what is being discussed and how to learn it. Moreover, in my point of view, another characteristic that makes him the best is the fact that he always gives us more than normally expected. In other words, Benji’s teaching is not limited to our books, since for him, it isn’t enough. For this reason, he always provides us with lots of extra and good material and studies. Also, he is ALWAYS available to help his students whenever it's necessary.
I recently told him that I am in trouble to find a good teacher, because after him, my expectation is really high.
The fact is: I strongly recommend Benji as the number 1 teacher!

Benji is nearly the greatest teacher I met! Each and every lesson was well structured. He teaches in such a way that seemingly complex concepts are perceptively unravelled. He gave me an opportunity to speak smartly and understandably. After his lessons, I’m far more confident in my English than I used to be.

Benji is a top-class teacher. He is always motivated, also well-organised. He takes care of every single student individually and encourages them.

I feel very lucky to study with him. Apart from his teaching, he is also very nice as a person. He has always been kind and helpful to me.

Thank you for everything Benji.

You are the best.

Benji is a great English teacher and I would strongly recommend him for the following reasons:
• He can easily and accurately identify your language difficulties and he will be focused on particularly those areas which you need to improve.
• He has an individual approach to a student, therefore, his classes are not only informative and useful but also 'easy to digest'.
• He can improve both your grammar and vocabulary and gives you some 'cultural background' of English which will help you to feel when and which word you should use in a sentence rather than just learn it.
Worth to note that I had A LOT of useful information during my classes in addition to what I was focused on. So my classes were cost-effective.

Benji is by far the greatest teacher I’ve ever studied with. He encouraged me to do my best. Due to his innovative teaching methods, my English jumped at a higher level. In addition, he makes learning English far more entertaining and interesting.
He is able to use all technological devices in order to transfer information to students quickly and efficiently. What's more, he is a great observer. In other words, he is capable of seeing the weaknesses of his students and succeeds in giving appropriate feedback.
Consequently, I can't thank him enough for his contributions to me.

Benji is the best English teacher ever. Because he treats all students equally. He answers student questions politely and responds quickly. Not only that, he always tries to keep the class positive and cheerful in order that the students can stay motivated.

Benji has been the best teacher that I have had so far. Not only dedicated, competent and attentive, but it is also clear that he truly loves what he does and this feeling is transmitted through motivation and excitement during his classes. Thanks for all your support Benji!
