English Teacher X is an American in his early 40s who has been teaching English abroad since 1995. He's taught in seven cities in five countries, to all levels and ages, and is currently working in the Middle East.[1]

He used to run a website with some remarkably colourful content now only available on the wayback machine. However as the original site had an objectionable content warning you may want to click with care[2] as it included some anecdotes which are most certainly NSFW.[3]

There is now a regularly updated blog which takes a jaundiced look at the profession.[4]

Books

English Teacher X has published two books. His debut book, English Teacher X: Guide to Teaching Abroad [5], is crash course on TEFL 101.

His second book, English Teacher X: To Travel Hopelessly [6], is a memoir that details his exploits while teaching English in Thailand, Korea, New York City and Russia. It is largely based on his earlier blog material.
