My name is Tyler Scharf and I am a teacher, trainer & certified coach from Erickson International. Born in Canada, I have 10 years of experience in the field of ELT. Throughout the years I had the chance to work in Russia, India and Turkey, where I got my full Delta and was working as a Celta & ICELT tutor, and with Oxford University Press and Turkish Ministry of Education. I am the founder and owner of Sharp English, an online language school that specialises in exam Cambridge preparation (CAE, CPE, IELTS, Delta)
Now I am pursuing a career in coaching because I found that even talented teachers can be vulnerable in their practice and need motivational support in addition to methodology and technique. I specialise in empowering teachers and learners to gain a clearer sense of self and develop confidence in their practice and learning.
I also provide regular training programs and consult teachers. Get in touch for more details.
