Hi my name is Donna and, before becoming an English teacher, I was an IT Training Consultant in the corporate world. I taught students from many different industries, as well as from different countries.I really enjoyed it for many years, but I grew tired of IT.

Languages and teaching are my main passions, so I decided to gain my CertTESOL and start teaching English as a foreign language. I love it! It’s much more rewarding than my previous work.

I always tailor the lessons according to students’ needs.  This can mean using a variety of material, including newspaper articles, worksheets, text books, video clips etc. I like to think that I am encouraging and patient.

I have many interests, including travel both within the UK and abroad. I also enjoy going to the theatre, cinema and to art exhibitions.

Surrey outside London is where I’m based; I cover this area and also Maidenhead and Slough.
