I am a fully qualified and enthusiastic MFL teacher with ten years of experience in the classroom.
I have a real passion for languages having lived abroad in both Germany and Spain for significant periods of time.
My family and I have recently returned from Köln, Germany where we spent two years living and working. It is fascinating being able to immerse yourself in another culture and key to developing your language skills further.
As well as teaching I also enjoy working as a freelance translator and proof reader.
In my free time I run, mountain bike and enjoy being outdoors with my young family.
