Meet the teachers
David has been teaching guitar and English for the past 35 years. His English teaching career started when he set up an English teaching centre in Tak, Thailand along with his wife, Dot. On moving back to the UK, he has worked in language schools, hospital education departments, teacher training, online courses, and teaching home-stay English courses to students who have stayed and studied in their home in Bournemouth on the south coast of England. He is an OET-recognised provider of quality OET/English tuition.
David is a keen walker and walks along the Bournemouth promenade most evenings which is only a few minutes walk from the house. He is a keen guitarist having developed his own style of music using his classical guitar with a few pedals creating ambient guitar music that he plays in cafes and elsewhere when he has the time.
Dot Pickett has been an English teacher for most of her career starting in Chiangmai, Thailand. She also set up an English teaching centre in Tak, Thailand along with her husband, David. Since then she has worked in language schools here in the UK and privately in her home in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England.
Dot loves to swim and visit cafes with friends and family. She was born in Thailand and loves to travel there when she gets the chance. She loves to cook a great Thai curry when family and friends come to visit.
