About me

I’m Senior Teacher for Teacher Training at International House Reggio Calabria in the South of Italy. It’s a beautiful little city on the Strait of Messina with a stunning view of Mount Etna on a clear day.

I did my CELTA in Krakow in 2005 and had such a great time that I stayed in Poland for two years. I returned to Sheffield University to do an MA in Applied Linguistics and then taught Academic English for a few years in Sheffield and London.

I moved back intome2 general English with the British Council in South Sudan and Colombia, where I spent two years. Colombia’s a beautiful country – if you haven’t been then you should go!

As well as teaching, I’m a trainer and local tutor for both the TYLEC and IHCYLT courses.

I love teaching and travelling and hope I get to do a lot more of it!
