    I am a Brazilian man who teaches English, so am I an English teacher or a teacher of English?

    I'm not English, yet I'm an English teacher. This could mean only one thing, that is, I'm a teacher of English.

    On the other hand, if you say you're an English teacher, it has an extra meaning in addition to the one mentioned above. That is, if you put stress on teacher instead of English, it indicates that you're a teacher from England, but it doesn't follow that you teach English.
