I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I began my teaching career as an adult IELTS teacher in 2012 after reading my MA in Applied Linguistics at Newcastle University, England. I later moved on teaching English in a prominent language center here in Guangzhou, where I progressed through senior teaching roles, to a positon of teacher trainer.

As my teaching career took shape I worked on furthering my education in the form of a DipTESOL through Trinity College London. My acquisition of this certificate, alongside my training role, led to me becoming a Trinity approved Tutor and Course Director. I used my experience and knowledge to guide teachers and trainees in pedagogy and lesson design to make sure all students were receiving rich and engaging classes. I see the journey of learning as endless and take every class as a learning opportunity for my students and myself.

Nord Anglia is a name known the world over, and the British School of Guangzhou is known for being one of the finest schools in Guangzhou. I was extremely happy to join the faculty and take the opportunity to provide first class English Language support to the children of the school.
