About me



My name is Umar Usman Arif and I am a native (UK) EFL teacher with experience in teaching English to students from various backgrounds, ages and levels.

I have attained a Masters in TEFL (achieving a merit) and I am also CELTA qualified (achieving pass B). In addition, I have undertaken and successfully completed the IELTS teacher-training course.

I have solid experience in teaching both Business English and General English in universities, schools and language institute environments. In addition, I have taught English at Saudi Arabia’s most prestigious establishment, King Saud University in Riyadh. Furthermore, I have extensive knowledge on computer assisted language learning (CALL) and have expertise in using HTML based multimedia materials, PowerPoint based lessons and the Promethean Smart board. Also, I have attended numerous personal development workshops and contributed in the areas of curriculum development, recruitment and assessment at King Saud University.

I have a lot to offer to language faculties and teams.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
