Meet your teacher
Mithun Das Bhaumik (founder)
Mithun Das Bhaumik was born in London and studied in Ealing at the University of West London where he completed a BA(Hons) degree in Tourism Management. He then spent 7 years in Italy and during this time began teaching English culture and English as a foreign language, preparing many students for well-known exams including KET, PET, FCE and CAE (now called A2 Key, B1 Preliminary, B2 First and C1 Advanced respectively).
He returned to the UK in 2008 and worked in several schools and international colleges in Oxford over a 10-year period specialising mainly in teaching academic English (often called English for academic purposes or EAP). His role involved ensuring students progressed onto university in the UK with relevant academic skills in English such as essay writing, giving formal presentations, and that they achieved their required IELTS score. He has also worked on numerous IELTS intensive summer courses which focus heavily on methods and strategies to pass the exam with high band scores (students frequently achieved overall scores of 7.0 and above).
More recently, Mithun moved to Cardiff at the start of 2019 and has worked as an associate tutor at Cardiff University on the academic English courses during the scholastic year, and also as a mentor for online students and an exam moderator on the intensive summer presessional courses.
Mithun has vast experience in helping students reach a standard of English which will help them to cope with the demands of undergraduate or postgraduate studies. He also has experience as an oral examiner for the Cambridge Assessment English exams and many years of experience in assessing course assignments on A-level and Advanced Level Foundation courses. In addition, he holds a certificate in TEFL (University of Bedfordshire) as well as the highly-recognised Diploma in TESOL (Trinity College, London).
Outside of teaching, Mithun speaks Italian fluently and he can therefore empathise with language learners, and he also coached a youth football team for 4 years, so he is able to keep students motivated by making his lessons fun and dynamic!
In brief, your teacher is highly-experienced and qualified, and is passionate about helping you achieve your goals!
