Aside from the above qualifications I also have experience in Teaching PTE (Pearson test of English) and OET (Occupational English Test).
Interests: You could say I'm a book worm because I love reading, I'm never without my Kindle digital book reader but my main passion is travel, I don't like busy tourist areas but instead love to get off the beaten track and make friends with people from all over the world, I enjoy travelling because it has taught me precious lessons in life, one being that our differences are what makes us interesting and no matter our religion, nationality or colour we are all brothers and sisters and deserve respect.
Education: I graduated from Cardiff University of Wales medical faculty in the UK
with a postgraduate Diploma, then continued my education with a MA in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching. I obtained certification in IELTS teaching from The London Teacher Training College and also have further ESL teaching certificates from Trinity College London in CELTA and TEFL
