Profession: Freelance Writer and Life Coach

Teaching Experience: After gaining my degree in English and Creative Writing in 2009 I did my 4 week training in Barcelona to become a certified TEFL teacher. Whilst in Barcelona and taught a number of adult learning classes as part of my training. I also have a TEFL Young Learner qualification.

After qualifying I worked at English Excel, a language school for children between the ages of 3-16 in Hong Kong. The lessons were tailored to hone the speaking, listening, reading and writing skills of the students. I also designed content for the summer courses, specialising in Phonics, Drama and Creative Writing. In addition I provided 1:1 tuition for students undertaking their Trinity assessments. During this time I also did private tutoring for both teenagers and adults.

I then worked as a Governess, Nanny and Tutor for a family in Moscow and travelled with them to Miami where we lived for 4 months. I was responsible for teaching English to the two children in fun and interactive ways.

Since returning to England I have worked in various educational settings assisting children with differing needs. I have worked as a teaching assistant in infant school and primary settings and also worked 1:1 with nursery age children with autism and global development delay.

Whilst at University in Sheffield I was a key member of the English Conversation Club and organised a number of meet-ups for foreign students who were new to the city to practice their English and integrate into life in England.

I have taught English whilst volunteering at an orphanage in Nepal and also in Malawi, Africa.

Interests: I am a freelance writer and creative consultant who is passionate about making the world a better place :) I am also a life coach and love to bring out the best in others. I am an avid traveller and love to experience new cultures and meet new people. I have a daily practice of yoga and meditation and feel most contented out in nature enjoying the simple things in life. I write poetry, love to sing and creating makes me happy! Curled up with my cat and enjoying a cup of tea and a stack of books is where you'll find me on a Sunday afternoon and autumn is my favourite season :) So looking forward to connecting with you and hearing all about YOU!
