About

d-towerLanguages and travel are my passions and have provided the backdrop to my life and varied studies and career since I was about 12!

I struggled with languages at school but clicked once I went to France on a long french exchange which changed everything for me.

I have a BA Hons degree from Hull University, European Studies with French and Spanish. This included fantastic times in Grenoble and Salamanca.

I did a Secondary PGCE in 1996 at Sheffield Hallam University. Prior that I worked in Export Sales and travelled widely in the French and Spanish speaking world. This included two years living in Paris as “the only Brit in the office”. I enjoyed teaching languages at Secondary and adult level in South Yorkshire for ten years after my PGCE.

I pride myself on offering a personal and professional service. I am happy to answer questions or give help outside classes. This year I have enjoyed building up both one to one clients, each one very different, and group classes for adults.
