Piers Midwinter – Profile

I am a friendly and mature Native English Speaking Teacher from the UK. In July 2019, I moved to Vietnam and in August, began teaching Cambridge ICT at a Cambridge International School in Ho Chi Minh City. I passed probation at the end of October and then signed a permanent Labour contract.

I am qualified to teach Information Communication Technology, IB ITGS, TOEIC and English to speakers of other Languages. I also have two Google Certificates (HTML5 and the Digital Garage) and have attended many training courses. I have had over 18 years of full time teaching employment and have taught:

·         ICT (Starters, GCSE, IGCSE, GNVQ, IB ITGS and A-level etc.)

·         Cambridge English (KET, PET, FCE, IELTS and CAE etc.)

·         Business English (BEC Vantage, BEC Higher and Corporate Language Courses etc.)

I have experience teaching in Universities, Corporations, Schools (International, Secondary, Primary & Language Schools), Privately and Online etc. Between April 2014 and June 2019 I successfully ran my own company. This included writing contracts and invoices, creating and delivering language courses for companies, advertising, updating websites and creating publicity material etc. My clients included Bright Coders Factory (IT Company), the director of Knoco (Knowledge management), Ledxon (LED factory) and Language Schools etc.

Between October 2014 and January 2018, I was employed by the Technical University of Dresden to teach Business English to Masters Students at IHI Zittau (one day per week). I have also had experience teaching ICT at three International Schools and have had many summer teaching jobs including one working with Bede’s International Summer School working as an Academies Teacher (Teaching English and ICT)

Whilst studying at Middlesex University, I won the University prize for ‘Excellence in the local Community’. I have also organized five international arts festivals. Two of which were co-organized with the New York Arts Magazine.
