    Meet Our Trainers

    Stephen Pire

    Head TEFL Trainer

    Steve is the head instructor of our Shanghai TEFL course and he has over seven years of teaching experience. He currently holds a post as visiting professor at East China University of Politics and Law in Shanghai, China. He has different degrees in English, Linguistics and Law. Stephen loves teaching TEFL courses and meeting new trainees, who come from all walks of life and usually have very diverging views on just about everything.

    Nikhil Patel

    TEFL Trainer

    Nick has been living and teaching in China since 2010. Since then, he's had the opportunity to teach adults, secondary and primary school English learners. He can't think of a moment when it wasn't enjoyable! Whilst doing so, Nick had the privilege to be welcomed into family homes, become part of the school's team of teachers, and take part in much more than just teaching English. He can't think of another serious profession that so regularly delivers so many giggles.

    Lisa Li

    Lisa has been teaching English for over a decade and has been a teacher trainer for nearly five years. She's taught long-term specialized courses for small groups of teachers in addition to seminars to over a hundred teachers. In 2012 she received a government award for being the best teacher in Shanghai's Changning district. If Lisa is not training teachers she enjoys eating and baking cakes with her husband.
