Profession: I currently work as a self-employed tutor.
Teaching Experience: I've worked in a variety of jobs - banking, insurance, hotel school assistant, childminder and nursery school assistant before I trained as a teacher. I started my training almost 20 years ago, and first taught literacy and numeracy to adults. I retrained for secondary school, and have done supply work teaching all age groups at schools/college.
Interests: I am 55 years old, married, with two grown-up children. I enjoy art and learning different things. To keep fit I go to Fitsteps and Zumba. I have visited some countries and would like to travel more. I did my CELTA training in Malta, and have gone to Poland and Spain as a volunteer with adults learning English.
Education: I have an MA in Novel Writing (book not finished yet!), PGCE in Secondary Maths Teaching from Canterbury Christ Church University, Advanced Diploma TESOL and BA/BSc gained with the Open University, QTLS - Qualified Teacher Learning & Skills. These were all needed for my teaching work. I've also done some art, exercise (yoga/exercise to music) and more recently hairdressing courses.
Spoken Languages: English (Native)
