English & French classes

I have a CELTA certificate (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults) and an MA in English Literature completed at Kingston University London. I also have an MA in Multilingual Communications from the ‘Université Libre de Bruxelles’ in Brussels and a BA in Modern Languages (English/Spanish).

I have been working as a teaching assistant and as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages since 2010 in various schools in both Luxembourg and London. Teaching and studying languages in different countries has given me an opportunity to discover a range of different learning and teaching environments.

I have studied and speak 5 foreign languages fluently, and therefore understand what it takes to learn a foreign language.I love teaching. I am reliable and I always do my best to to meet the needs of the students I work with.

About Me

Multilingual, Creative, Flexible, Patient, Sociable, Enthusiastic, Dynamic, Hardworking



Originally, I decided to take a Masters in English Literature to teach English in Luxembourg, my hometown. However, now that I have the relevant academic and practical qualifications I want to develop my teaching career here in England. I have been working as a teaching assistant and as a teacher of English and French as foreign languages since 2010 in various schools in both Luxembourg and London. Teaching and studying languages in different countries has given me an opportunity to discover a range of different learning and teaching environments.

I have a CELTA certificate (Pass B) and an MA in English Literature completed at Kingston University London. I also have an MA in Multilingual Communications from the ‘Université Libre de Bruxelles’ in Brussels and a BA in Modern Languages (English/Spanish).

I have taught both English and French as foreign languages. At Language.lu in Luxembourg, I was responsible for establishing the weekly educational programme for the students who usually attended an intensive 1 week course. At Aline Mayrisch high school in Luxembourg, I team-taught English to students aged 15/16 years for an English option class. I established the programme and evaluated the students at the end of the year.

I have studied and speak 5 foreign languages fluently, and therefore understand what it takes to learn a foreign language. I love teaching. I believe I am a patient, creative and hard working person; qualities which I think are important to be a good teacher. I am motivated and reliable and I always do my best to use the skills I have acquired in order to meet the needs of the students I work with.
