Teacher introduction

I’ve been teaching English for over 15 years in Europe and in Central America. I’ve gained the skills needed to help learners of all levels. As well as teaching, I’ve had the opportunity to help run an after school English workshop in Germany. This was a fun and exciting way of supporting young learners between the age of 12 – 16 outside the classroom. Now I find teaching in my own home a great way to integrate learners into my daily life and enjoy everything my historic area has to offer.

Academic information

With my CELTA certificate, I’ve been more skilled in teaching Business English as well as General English to well known Companies and to those wishing to improve their language. I also hold a Childcare and Early Learners certificate which helps me give a different style of teaching to my younger learners and take care of their wellbeing.

Teacher’s hobbies and interests

Traveling is a major aspect of my life because I enjoy meeting new people and learning new cultures. I enjoy a cultural diversity and food, which is why cooking has become a passion I practice at home and I welcome the opportunity to share my cooking knowledge. When I’m not reading a good book, I’m often found at my local Gym.

About the teacher’s accommodation

My home has 1 single and 1 double room available to guests, with private bathroom. The location is a quiet family area with a park nearby. The Canterbury city centre is a 10- 15 minute walk along the river. Public transport facilities are near.

About the local area

Living very near a sport centre, there are many activities available in my local area. Swimming, Cycling, Cricket, Basket ball, other indoor and outdoor games are available at the centre. So it’s never boring in my area.
