About me

I’m lucky that my profession has given me the opportunity to travel and work in many other countries both as a teacher and trainer.

On my return to London, I trained as a Cambridge teacher trainer (for CELTA) and then moved to Brighton to do my master’s degree in Teaching English. I have experience in teaching all age groups and most types of English e.g. Academic, Exam, Business, General, Specific Purposes and Teacher Refresher. I love my profession and always aim to engage my students through creative and meaningful sessions that provide them with their desired outcomes.

In my free time I love going to the sea for a swim – all year round! I am very keen on protecting our environment so I cycle everywhere and try to recycle as much as I can. I also create artwork and occasionally exhibit during the Brighton May Festival.
