I am Gareth the Storyteller. I bring stories alive for adults and children alike. I specialise in graded stories for English language students.
I have an MA in Creative Writing from Cardiff University and have told stories in the UK, Japan, China, Serbia, Croatia, Poland, Portugal, Bulgaria, Turkey, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. You can often find me telling stories at venues across Cardiff and I am a member of the Society for Storytelling.
As well as being a storyteller, I have the DELTA qualification and have worked in English language teaching for over twenty years as a teacher, teacher trainer and materials developer. I've developed materials for Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and the British Council and taught for Cardiff University in Cardiff and International House in the Czech Republic, Spain and Portugal.
As a teacher trainer, I've visited over forty countries and have collected a range of traditional stories on my travels. Now, I am combining my two passions and bringing traditional stories to the English language classroom.

Finally, I am also an author of fiction. You can buy my latest novel here.
