I’m originally from Australia and have been teaching English as a foreign language for over 30 years. I first began teaching in Spain and then spent one year in Italy before returning to Spain again to undertake a teacher-training course. Upon completion I obtained a job with the British Council School in Madrid, where I remained for five years, teaching adults and young learners. Later, I taught business English to students studying for their MBA at the EOI (School of Industrial Organisation).
The next step in my career was to become self employed. As a freelance teacher, I taught classes in Companies, courses at Universities and also gave private lessons to people in their homes.
In 2012, I began giving English classes via skype and have found it to be a highly effective form of teaching and a great alternative to the traditional face to face classes.
As well as teaching English, I have a great interest in learning languages myself. I speak Spanish fluently, and can communicate in French and Italian. My personal experience of learning languages has greatly influenced my teaching methodology, and helped me to develop effective learning strategies which I have been able to share with my students. If you decide to do clases with me, I’m sure you’ll make rapid progress.
