MORE ABOUT ME

What teaching experience do I have?

For the past five years, I have taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to students from India, Japan, South Korea, Sri Lanka, France, Spain, Saudi Arabia and Sudan. During this time, I have also worked with one of the biggest language schools in the world, and as part of this job, I have trained at several multinational companies, helping their employees develop their communication skills for work.

What do I teach?

I teach general English, business English, English for exams, presentation skills, telephoning skills, email writing, and accent and pronunciation. I am also a teacher trainer, focusing on helping novice teachers deliver quality lessons to their students.

Why do I teach?

I teach because I am extremely passionate about teaching, and have been for all my life. My #1 commitment is my students' success in whatever I teach them and beyond. Although a professional ESL teacher, in the past I have also taught web design, software development, and even martial arts!

What other work experience do I have?

I began my career by working as a copywriter for local publications and websites. I then worked as an office manager, web developer and online marketer, all while working part-time as an English language trainer. I took the plunge into full-time ESL teaching in 2010 and haven't looked back since.

What are my qualifications?

I graduated with a degree in Business Administration. My primary teaching qualification is a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) from the University of Cambridge. I also have a certificate in using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the classroom from International House, Barcelona.
