I help frustrated learners transform the way they learn English to build confidence and communicate effectively.
I believe in the need for a 21st century learning experience to help students become confident speakers of English and break down communication and cultural barriers to meet the challenges of a global society. Using brain-friendly techniques, I help students acquire the language skills they need to be more confident English speakers and to develop essential 21st century skills to ensure their future success. I have been teaching since 1997 when I graduated from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and a B.A Combined Honours degree in English, French and Anthropology. I started my teaching career in the UK in a state secondary school, teaching English and French. Since completing the Cambridge RSA/Celta certificate in English language teaching (Grade A) in 1999, I have taught general and business English to both children and adults in Spain, Portugal, Egypt and Hong Kong. Since settling in Spain, I have worked for the British Council and International House in Barcelona and am currently employed by the local council in Galicia to teach EFL. In 2019 I became a Neurolanguage Coach, certified by Efficient Language Coaching and accredited by the International Coaching Federationand began coaching online.
