My name is Marek Kiczkowiak and I’m the founder of TEFL Equity Advocates. I will also be your instructor on all the face-to-face and on-line courses. I am a teacher, teacher trainer and materials writer with over seven years of experience in the field. I have taught English in Latin America and in Europe, and am currently teaching EAP at KU Leuven, Belgium. I hold a BA in English Philology, Cambridge CELTA and DELTA, and am now working towards a PhD in TESOL at the University of York, UK, where I specialise in native speakerism and ELF. I have delivered workshops, seminars and talks at many international conferences and events for English teachers in Europe and North America. I edit the TEFL Equity Advocates blog, and also run now a sporadically updated blog about ELT at TEFL Reflections. I also co-author a regular podcast about teaching and learning English at The TEFL Show.
