Background, Experience, and Style

I am a CELTA qualified teacher who has experience teaching English to students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.  I have taught across Europe and Asia including Austria, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, and Russia.  I am passionate about using a mixture of collaborative and communicative learning techniques to facilitate a productive, engaging, and fun classroom environment.  I strongly believe the most efficient learning environment is one which fosters fun and hands on practice of the language being taught.  Drama certainly plays a significant role within my teaching approach as it enables students to use the whole range of their language capabilities.

My first experience of teaching was the summer of 2006 when I travelled to Mietne in Poland to teach English to teenagers for four weeks as part of a university exchange project.  This project ignited my passion for education and travelling and was a pivotal moment in my career.  Following this, I joined ACLEā€™s Theatrino which is a travelling theatre in education company based in San Remo in Italy.  Theatrino uses theatre and drama techniques to teach English to students from pre-primary to secondary.

In 2013, I became fully qualified as I successfully passed my Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) at the Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE).  Since then I have mainly taught with English in Action and INTO UEA along with other shorter contracts with NILE.
