“I have worked as an English Language Trainer for almost 7 years both in the UK and abroad. I have experience teaching many different nationalities and specialise in preparing students for Cambridge exams. I also enjoy teaching Business English and have previously worked in the Financial Services and Information Technology industries.”

ABLE offers something which no other school has – the ability to combine a variety of courses which means students can achieve their goals faster.

“As an experienced and imaginative Director of Studies/teacher trainer with a wide range of work and life experience, I build strong learning relationships quickly; being patient, creative and kind I can get the best out of students and increase their confidence by helping them acquire language that is immediately useful to them..”

At ABLE Manchester I oversee all of the academic side of the courses and help train our teachers to be the best they can be

“I have been teaching English as a foreign language for three years now. Prior to this, I was a high school English literature teacher in the United States for more than six years. One of the things I enjoy about teaching English is being able to help my students understand how the language works in different settings and situations. I also love meeting people from other parts of the world because I learn so much about different cultures.”

Most importantly, I love being able to help my students achieve their goals. That to me is the most rewarding part of teaching English.
