Hi, I'm Fiona.
I started my TEFL journey back in 2008 when I became qualified as a teacher of English as a foreign language.
I taught classes face-to-face in Europe, Central America, and Asia, in English language centres and schools.
I started leading teacher training sessions in 2011 and taught my first online English lesson in 2012.
