EAL Teacher

I have worked as a teacher helping young language learners for over 20 years. Initially, that was in my native UK, where, after completing my PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages, I taught German and French in the English Midlands. After also acquiring a CELTA qualification, I came to East Asia and have now over 15 years’ experience of teaching young English language learners in various parts of this region, particularly Korea and Japan.


This is, however, my first time teaching in China and I am immensely looking forward to developing further as an EAL teacher at the British School of Guangzhou. I was attracted to the school both professionally, as a stimulating and satisfying place to work, and personally, as a place where my own son, now in the Primary School, would thrive, grow and be happy.

As well as being a language teacher, I have always been an enthusiastic language learner. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to reach fairly advanced levels in a couple of European languages and a couple of Asian ones too. Chinese is not yet a language I have much ability in, but I do hope to rectify that soon. In my free time, I am a keen follower of a number of sports, especially football, cricket and rugby league. My playing days are behind me, but I still try to keep myself in good shape through hiking, walking, running and the occasional work out.
