Craig Alfred Willard

ESL Teacher,

Education Consultant

Hello, I am Craig!

I have over 10 years of experience teaching English to individuals and businesses.

A graduate of the University of North Carolina and University of London, I hold degrees in International Studies and a CELTA degree in teaching English as a second language.

I love teaching and traveling. From 2011 to 2022, I was based in Moscow and Boston. For the past two years, I have lived in Barcelona, Spain with my wife and two kids.

My teaching philosophy
Today's learners are inquisitive, ambitious and confident.
They are also always on-the-go, independent and overworked.

Throughout my career as an ESL teacher, I've been incredibly lucky to have worked with a wide variety of students, from primary school children to C-suite leaders.

I believe that a good teacher should be patient, constantly work to improve themselves and above all, be versatile.

From designing an English-language drama program for an IB school to helping Russian-speaking executives to attain their dream jobs in Canada and England, I've enjoyed adapting my teaching style and techniques to the needs and levels of my students.

    I have no doubt that Craig will be a responsible contributor to any work of tutorship for kids to make them progress as he is an open-minded and conscientious person.
  • Darya Topilskaya

    Craig is a great teacher who has a wide understanding of subjects. My goals of improving my English level and becoming more comfortable in conversing at expositions and conferences were met with his constant support and encouragement.
  • Tatiana P.
    Son Arseny, age 13
    Craig has been teaching Arseniy for over three years now. He's made tremendous progress! Senya was shy about speaking English in an everyday setting, but Craig has helped him be bold and unafraid of communicating in class or while abroad on holiday.
  • Natasha Malgina
    Film Director, Animaccord
    I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long.
  • Anastasia Savelyeva
    Former IT Project Manager, Raiffeisen Bank
    I worked with Craig when my family and I started thinking about relocating to New Zealand. The focus was on my spoken English and improving grammar and I'm pleased to say I achieved excellent results. Craig provided challenging aterials based on my interests.I highly recommend Craig as a teacher!
  • Vitaly Musatov
    Animation Compositor
    I have studied English since 1st grade, but I hadn't felt comfortable speaking it until I worked with Craig from 2013 to 2015, in classes held at work.
    These classes helped me to pass the IELTS test in 2016. Moreover, it was very helpful in many interviews with international companies, at work, and everyday life when I relocated to Montreal, Canada.
