Adam Malster

Senior Teacher, Adults

I’ve taught in the UK, Czech Republic and Taiwan and been in Taipei since 1999. After completing my certificate in TESOL in 1996, I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and have my Master’s degree in Education. 

I have been teaching IELTS at the British Council since 2007 and I am here to share that knowledge with you and provide practical preparation and exam strategies that will help you to achieve the highest band you can.

David Ford


I passed my Cambridge Diploma in 2007, and I have extensive experience of teaching IELTS preparation here, and in Korea and Vietnam. I will do my best to help you get the band score you require.
