About David Perkins:

My name is David Perkins and I am 41 years old.

I have many years of experience working in the entertainment industry running my own disco and karaoke company, bar work and running pubs for people.  This has enabled me to develop and enhance my people skills, which I believe are vital in this industry.

I work well under pressure, I am a team player, as well as being able and confident to work on my own as the situation demands.

I am honest, reliable, approachable and caring, I truly enjoy meeting and dealing with people and I believe this is reflected in my personality.

I always aim to exceed expectations. I have a positive “can do” approach to my work and I believe given the opportunity, I would be an asset to your company and would ask that you consider me for the position.

Other than my teaching experience in various countries over the last 9/10 years, I have worked in and help manage youth clubs/groups, as well as running my own mobile disco company.  I have done many of children’s discos and DJ workshops over the years for children of all ages.  I have also taught conversational English via Skype to a few of my foreign friends.

I am very passionate about Africa, African countries, the culture etc: the environment, nature, wildlife, multicultural people, history and beyond.  I have had an interest in these fields as a young child and now at the age of 41 my passion remains but even stronger, I have travelled the World as an English Teacher and I have seen some amazing wonders. I watch documentaries all the time on a daily basis as I love to learn new facts.

Experience

I have experience teaching KS1 - KS5 students in English language, English Literature and also English as a foreign language.
