About me

I have worked as a TEFL teacher for 8 years. I deferred from a sociology degree in 2007 to try teaching and since then I have worked in 5 countries and been able to develop my teaching skills using a wide range of methodology. Outside of work i enjoy sports and writing, as well as going to concerts and festivals and spending time with friends. Apart from travelling, my favourite thing about my job is meeting new people from all over the world and gaining different perspectives and learning about new cultures.

Skills

I have worked as a CELTA trained English teacher for 8 years. I have taught in a variety of schools in Poland, Italy, Costa Rica and Spain as well as in the UK. During this time I have amassed a wealth of classroom experience and teaching knowledge which I would like to share with a voluntary organisation.

Additional info

I am a smoker, don't have a drivers license, I am not a vegetarian and I have no allergies.

I smoke about 2 or 3 day and I can live without it
