Nicky T

I have been teaching English as a foreign language both overseas and in the UK for 18 years. I have worked in a range of settings including universities, high schools, private language schools and with various age groups including teenagers. I love teaching and have taught all levels including Business English, English for Exams and Academic Purposes. I also write educational materials including IELTS practice tests and ESOL Skills for Life. I live with my seven year old in a modern flat in the seaside town of Hastings. It is a very creative town with a tourist industry. There is so much to do and enjoy in this town from walks along the beach, the fun fair, cliff walks, historic sites and easy reach to Battle, Rye, Lewes, Brighton and not too far from London. The guest room is large, sunny and modern and has all the comforts you need including desk, chair, lamp, wi-fi.
