In 2006, I qualified from university with a 2.1 in Linguistics and Phonetics and a PGCE in Secondary English. Then, after seven years of teaching lessons rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED, in 2016, my focus shifted to creating new challenges that aimed to achieve personal fulfilment. 

This led to establishing a self-employed business formed of multiple roles that combine my passion for education and language. 

With freedom over my professional development, I am particularly choosing to develop assessment, pedagogy, digital and writing skills.
