ESOL and Functional Skills Specialist
I’ve been working at Concept Training since January 2017 teaching English to Syrian refugees on the Syrians Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme (VPRS). I have delivered classes around Kent but am now based at our training centre in Ashford. Since Lockdown I’ve also been delivering classes remotely on Zoom. I have recently started teaching ESOL to students from different nationalities. Above all, I am passionate about making a positive difference to students’ lives.
I have 20 years’ teaching experience gained working with a range of ages in different settings: secondary schools, a college and a private training provider. Prior to working in education I worked for several years in the travel industry. This included living in France, Spain, North and South America. I have an interest in learning foreign languages. I speak Spanish, French and am currently learning Arabic online with Kent Adult Education.
