Hailing from Sydney, Australia, I’ve recently relocated to London to experience a different education system, and to enjoy everything this fantastic city has to offer.
I’ve always been interested in languages, having grown up in a bilingual family and having fallen in love with books at a young age. I nurtured this passion during my Bachelor of Arts, studying English Literature, French and Sociology, and completing time abroad in France. I had the foresight that I’d teach one day, doing private tuition in English and French throughout my university degree before undertaking the CELTA Certificate and starting to teach shortly thereafter.
My favourite thing about teaching is observing the progress of my students and watching their skills, language comprehension and confidence develop. The belief that each group of students is different prompts me to adapt all lessons accordingly, forming a significant rapport with all learners. I also believe teaching is a symbiotic process that allows me to continuously grow alongside of my students. For me, lessons should always be dynamic, motivational, interesting and, above all, fun.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy taking advantage of London’s green spaces when the weather permits, usually with friends or a good book for company. I’m also a fan of modern art, grammar and linguistics, craft beer, films, peanut butter and finishing every sentence with rising intonation.
My favourite thing about London the diversity of its citizens, as well as its close proximity to amazing travel destinations, which I try to visit whenever possible, and that there’s always something fun to do here.
