It was 2013 and I was your typical traveller in Hat Yai, Thailand. I was looking for a teaching job, but without any previous TEFL experience my prospects weren't great. Pete must have seen something in me as he was willing to take a shot on this inexperienced young guy.
He gave me personalised one on one training sessions before my first day in the school. Pete gave me tips on how to maximise student talking time, plan lessons and successfully manage a classroom and so much more. And some of the advice translated into genuine good life skills as well.
He knew his stuff, in fact his level of knowledge was astounding, and his teaching style was fantastic. He had a wicked sense of humour and a way of explaining complex ideas in a simplistic way that meant the information has stuck in my mind even to this day!
I would 100% recommend Pete to anyone wanting to teach in a foreign country. Easily the best boss and teacher I've ever had.
