30 years experience
I now live in France after many years of teaching in Further Education in the UK. I am also an artist.
I started teaching as an alternative to office work, which I found static and boring and immediately loved my new career. I completed a Diploma in DELTA, and returned to the UK where I began work in a private language school. I completed my PGCE at the University of Greenwich.
I then worked as a senior teacher with EF, before joining Waltham Forest College as a lecturer and member of the Teaching and Learning Improvement Team. I spent over 20 years there, teaching EFL, ESP and ESOL, before deciding to change my lifestyle and becoming a freelance teacher in France.
I have a very friendly, humanistic and communicative teaching style. I adapt very easily and intuitively to my learners. I can challenge advanced students, fostering a spirit of growth, and encourage, support and reassure lower level students. I am currently mastering 2 foreign languages myself, so I understand my students well.
