Freelance Teacher/Teacher Trainer/Assessor/Consultant (EFL and CELTA)

Career Highlights

I began my teaching journey in ihHastings, where I followed CELTA and DTefla and worked under Adrian Underhill as our Head of Training. It was a glorious time and a huge opportunity for development. I have worked in Singapore, Spain, Oman, Serbia, Saudi, France, Canada and Australia both teaching and teacher training. I have also set up centres in Italy and the Netherlands. As a freelance, I am mainly working in Italy at the moment, but was given a fabulous opportunity to work with the British Council and ITTC on the UNELTA Prelim 2 project, working with Ugandan teachers.  I designed and delivered online courses and worked on low resource materials. One of my claims to fame is that as Teacher Training Programme Manager in New College Nottingham I introduce the online CELTA and we were the first centre in the UK to deliver the course outside ihLondon.
