My name is Scott Parrant and I am from Perth, Western Australia. I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where I was living for one year, but I have since returned back home to Australia. In Mexico, I spent some time working in a language center teaching English to Spanish speaking students young & old. I have received some great feedback on my relaxed and understanding approach to teaching English. As I am currently learning a second language (Spanish) at the moment, I understand the difficulties that you come across when learning a new language from scratch and that is why I am here to work with you and help you achieve your goals.
