About Me

I'm from the UK. I've lived and worked in many places around the world. I work for University College London (UCL) helping prepare students for university study. I've taught English in Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Portugal, Hong Kong and Spain. I have worked as a Senior Teacher for the British Council, and as a Head of English in international schools, and most recently as an Associate Lecturer. I am a friendly, patient and experienced tutor!

I love travelling. and have been to more than 50 countries so far. I love meeting new people and learning about different cultures - that's why I love teaching so much. In my free time I also play football, play the guitar and sing (badly!) and I am interested in street photography. I love learning new things - I am a life-long learner, and that is my key to happiness :-)
