      I am a native English teacher with a BA in Education, a Training and Education diploma and TEFL certified. I have spent the last seven years teaching in Spain, Cambodia and Hungary. My experiences include teaching non-native English speakers from very diverse cultural backgrounds.

      Throughout my teaching career, I have always strived to deliver lessons in creative engaging ways that allows students the opportunity to stay focus and motivated. I engage students with my enthusiasm, encouraging them to challenge themselves in each lesson, making them feel responsible for their own learning and in doing so they become proud of each accomplishment, which in turn motivates them to keep striving for the best.

      My desire to remain a lifelong learner has fueled my sense of adventure, motivating me to learn more about myself and the world around me. So far, I have had the pleasure of visiting 26 countries, meeting new interesting people, trying amazing traditional dishes and learning about their culture. I have lived in a few of these countries and have always tried to learn the local language. At times this has proven to be more of an amusement to the locals, but they always appreciate my efforts.

      Therefore, I have gained first-hand knowledge of the challenges involved in learning a new language and know that it helps to have a dedicated, motivated teacher, who will in turn motivate students into learning. I look forward to a fantastic year of practicing and learning English with all of my new students in a fun, safe environment.
