Hi, I'm Derrick Anderson. I work as


- English Language Consultant

- English Teacher

- Cambridge Examiner

- IELTS Speaking Test Wizard ;-)

I've been teaching for 29 years. I have over 29 students at my base in Reiden, where I offer a full range of English language services and courses especially designed for what you need; one-to-one, in pairs or in small groups of 3 to 4 students.

Proven Success: 95% of my students pass their Cambridge or IELTS exam.

I am a Cambridge Examiner, an IELTS Speaking Test Wizard and ex-IELTS writing Examiner

Contact me for a level assessment and I'll tell you exactly what you have to do, how long it will take and how much it will cost to get your certificate.

Schedule - check when I'm available.
Different Students 
Require Different
Approaches to Learning

Some people learn quickly, some slowly, some people don't have much energy because they work full-time.

Whatever your situation, I'll make a course specific to your needs, in a group of friends or workmates, or in one-to-one lessons.

Services - I don't just teach English

I also do German to English translations on all sorts of documents. Some of my past work is here:


Baur Fromberg

Andreas Rooms 

IELTS Wordcounts are History! 

Did you know IELTS Writing Examiners haven't been counting words since mid 2018?

Exam Success!
Congratulations in 2023 to

Camille and Aurélie (CPE)

Alexandra (First)

Sek Reiden (PET)


Derrick does mock speaking tests for PET for Schools and First for Schools with my students here at the secondary school in Reiden. My students always perform very well and find the practice a great experience that really prepares them for their speaking tests.

He completely changed my way of thinking about the IELTS writing test and I got my ticket to Australia.
