My story

I started my teaching career in 1995 after finishing my studies at university. My first teaching jobs were overseas in Turkey where I lived and worked for 2 years. I then returned to the UK and settled in south Wales where I still live now.

I started teaching online in 2005. The reason I started teaching online was because I had always been very interested in using technology to make learning more interesting. I also wanted to try being my own boss for a change. I love teaching online because hearing another voice in my lessons from so far away is a magical experience for me!

To create better work-life balance, I returned to classroom teaching in 2019 and I now work in the mornings at an adult education college helping refugees and asylum seekers with their English and with integration into life in the UK.

A passion for music

Music is very important to me. I have a real passion for the guitar and for music from different parts of the world. I love talking about music so if you have a love for music too, we’ll have plenty of different things to talk about!

A passion for cooking

Another thing I really love is food and cooking. If you enjoy this too, we would have a lot in common. I would be very interested to learn more about the food that comes from your part of the world

A passion for film

I am a massive fan of films particularly documentaries and I have enjoyed sharing many recommendations with my learners over the years. A good film is a window into another reality.
