See what our customers say... 👀

I have just watched the 3 Key Steps to Freelance Teaching Success. It was amazing! I got so much out of it and I am so excited to start answering those questions you asked us. Thank you so much!


I've just completed this course online! This was a great course! Focusing on empowering students and giving them space and comfort to be free in using and playing with English. I am really looking forward to incorporating this into my lessons!


A much needed breath of fresh air in these times where workload feels like it has doubled, even tripled! Richard added in a good balance of teaching theory and logic, all with a consistent theme of human interaction in English, using real world topics and not ‘English for no apparent reason’ - which is very much how it can feel sometimes! 100% would recommend to new and experienced teachers.

A word from Lewis Richards, Director of Studies -

UK Joint #1 Language School

I totally endorse these courses

I have worked with hundreds of teachers and many trainers over the years, but Richard is one of the very best, and I totally endorse his courses, and encourage you to give them a go if you want to really get the very best out of your teaching.

If you’re looking to improve your teaching, teach with more confidence, and widen your repertoire and range of teaching techniques and ideas, his courses would be perfect for you.  What they will give you as well is a sense of fulfilment as a teacher, a feeling that you can develop ways in which your students will maximise their learning, all the time in a fun, challenging and interesting atmosphere.

I learned a huge amount about teaching from Richard, and his ideas and approach have had a big impact on my teaching over the years, and he can do the same for you.

About Richard Brown

My goal is to empower TEFL teachers like you with the tools and insights you need to create a teaching life you love.

Having been in your shoes, I understand the challenges you face with the knowledge gap between TEFL and DELTA training that leaves many TEFL teachers feeling overwhelmed or like they are simply going through the motions.

Spending hours on lesson planning, the struggle to keep students engaged, and the risk of burnout. That’s why I’ve designed everything you need to bridge that gap and help make your teaching life simpler, easier and more rewarding while teaching with confidence.

I’m a highly-experienced and passionate teacher who has taught and trained teachers at the highest level. This new and empowering way of teaching and training is 15 years of post-DELTA tips, ideas, insights and teaching through affordable ready-to-go video courses, resources and group coaching.

I can’t wait to help you create a teaching life you love!
