TEACHERS & SUPPORT TEAM
I started teaching in 2009 after finishing a degree in English Literature. I have taught general, business and exam English to students from all over the world and all levels, from beginner to advanced. I really enjoy working with people and helping them to express themselves. One of the best things about my job is that I get to meet people from different countries and cultures, with a variety of life experiences, so I also learn a lot from our students!
I joined Malvern House Brighton in 2021, and I also have experience teaching in Vietnam and Australia. I have taught General English of all levels, IELTS and English for Academic purposes. I also ran clubs for pronunciation, grammar, conversation and the job application process in a previous role. I really enjoy meeting people from other countries and learning about their cultures and languages.
Despite studying maths at university, I've been teaching English students from around the world for nearly 10 years. I spent time as a teacher in Cambodia and Spain before moving to Brighton in September 2022. I love teaching all classes from beginner to proficiency especially to hear the different ideas and stories students can tell me.
I have worked in international education since 2003, when I took my CELTA qualification. I taught English in the UK and Italy for many years, becoming DELTA qualified in 2014. I have held positions in academic, centre and operations management before arriving at Malvern House to take up the post of Sales and Student Services Manager in 2022. Since February 2023, I have moved to the role of Centre Manager. I oversee all aspects of the student journey, ensuring everyone has the best possible experience during their time with us here in Brighton.
Director of Studies
I have been involved in language education since 2004, when I got my first teaching job in London. From the start, I loved the fact that every teaching day was different, and I really enjoyed learning new ways to support my students with their individual needs and goals. I completed a teaching diploma (Cambridge DELTA) in 2007 and an MA in English Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics in 2010. Since then, I have worked as a teacher, teacher trainer and academic manager and I am now excited to be working as Director of Studies at Malvern House Brighton.
