I’m the owner and director of Big Education Limited, the company responsible for the free IELTS course.

I’ve been teaching IELTS candidates around the world since 2003 and ran a popular online IELTS tutoring service called for 6 years.

I’m a qualified English language teacher with both the Certificate and Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA and DELTA) from the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. I also hold a first class honours degree from the Open University in the UK.

I’m now concentrating on developing the free IELTS course, making videos for my YouTube channel, and writing posts for my IELTS blog.

I’m based in Auckland, New Zealand, and am the Academic Director at New Zealand Language Centres.
