***In January 2017, Tom moved to Wellington, New Zealand, where he has been continuing his work as an ESOL teacher in Wellington based Language schools and in one of the city's universities. With a focus on academic tuition, Tom has been guiding students to success in the IELTS and CAE exams as well as teaching General English courses.

English Teacher Brussels has developed a teaching network of fellow professionals operating in the Brussels area. The aim of the network is to provide a platform to allow English ESOL teachers to share their experiences, deal with queries, network with other members, and discuss potential opportunities in the field. If you hold the Cambridge CELTA, Trinity Cert TESOL, or other equivalent qualifications and have experience of teaching the types of course we offer, we would like to hear from you.
