I (Kelvin Hayes) am also an TESOL qualified educator teaching the more cultural side of English and also Inter-Cultural Communications. In six years I’ve taught kids and adults, however feel I am better suited to university level. Most of my educative experience has been in Asia but I am open to other possibilities.

In 2016, inspired by Brian Eno‘s Oblique Strategies, I devised nHW (non homework) and nEX (non exam) as a means to alleviate stress in my students who I feel are burdened with too much homework and not enough space to develop their inter-personal skills.

The added intention was to expand their thinking somewhat. In addition I agree with Edward deBono that universities need to be more than just enclosed spaces of knowledge and that thinking should be a subject in its own right. My ultimate goal would be the option to teach art at foundation level, cultural studies or continue with TESOL (in a class or online setting).

Giving a talk to the Travel and Tourism students at SCNU.


  • I hold a degree in Design and a TESOL certificate.
  • Six years experience in class, mostly at university level. Class sizes 35-120 students!
  • I believe in further learning and am happy to be police checked and medically tested.
  • I am seldom sick and as you can see from the photo below easily adaptable to other countries.


I am available to teach worldwide including the UK and although I prefer a physical space, I’ve recently began to consider online teaching as it would allow me to continue travelling – some countries you have to see at certain times of year – the academic year prevents this.
