Hi everyone, I’m Eleanor. I completed a MA in TESOL 10 years ago and have been an English teacher since then, but first I studied French and Spanish at university so I understand the struggles of learning another language! I love meeting new students from all over the world, learning about your cultures, and sharing my own culture with you. I have a wide range of experience, including exam preparation, CLIL, and flipped classroom techniques, and I am constantly seeking new methods to put into practice in my lessons. When I’m not teaching, you’ll probably find me outside on the farm or inside cooking – in either situation, my children will be there too 👶👧
