Karl's passion is for teaching English and this desire was found when he taught in South Korea for a number of years mainly at Daegu University. He observed the test preparation that went into TOEIC and realised that test preparation skills were definitely needed.
At Kaplan International in Brisbane, Karl taught IELTS, CAE and FCE before going on to be the IELTS Head teacher at Viva College. During this time, he identified key skills that will make a difference in IELTS exam preparation and he looks forward to helping you learn and improve.
