Ian attained his CELTA in 1997 after three years of teaching in Poland. Between then and 2007, Ian was mainly based in Poland where he was living and working as an English teacher. However, during the summer holidays from 1998, he used to teach for CESC at our summer centres. When Ian moved back to England in 2007, he was a natural choice as a teacher here, having 13 years of solid experience overseas and a proven track record in our Summer Schools. Since 2007, Ian has continued to develop professionally working mostly on the General Course, and also teaching exam classes such as IELTS and FCE. In 2011, he completed his Diploma. Ian has a degree in Fine Art from Sunderland Polytechnic.
