Teacher / Teacher Trainer Teaches:

I have a Fine Art Hons degree, and worked in that field until, in 1988 I discovered English Language Teaching when I took a TESOL Initial Training Course.  In 1990, I did a Cambridge CELTA in Nottingham and began full-time teaching in the UK, then in rural Greece, where I lived and worked from 1991 to 1994.   For the next 10 years I worked as a teacher of adults and young-learners on courses for General English and examination preparation in centres in Oxford and Devon. This included running a volunteer EL project for asylum-seekers, in Exeter. During this period I also worked in two women's refuges as an out-of-hours support worker. In 2006, I left the UK again, working with VSO in Rwanda; teaching in Tunis and Ireland. Early in 2007, I moved to Tripoli, Libya, where I spent 4 years, involved in many EL projects, including one at Tripoli University. I also developed my skills as a teacher trainer and led many methodology workshops, in-house at various institutions, and freelance. At the onset of war in February 2011, I went to Tunisia, and taught at a centre there, also running a teacher development programme. At the end of that year I moved to Ankara to take up a post as a teacher trainer at a girls’ high school. In 2013, I returned to the UK, and to my native land of Wales. In the subsequent three years, I taught two pre-sessional programmes at Cardiff University, worked for 16 months in Special Educational Needs, in the Cardiff area and in Bath, then taught General English, IELTS and Academic English at a local centre. In July 2016, I came to WE Bridge Academy, and have so far been involved in teacher development programmes, the Trinity CertTESOL course, as well as General English, IELTS preparation, and the International Foundation Programme (IFP).
