Meet the teachers
Our staff are passionate and proud of the work they do to make the school the best it can be. Leeds English Language School teachers have between 5 and 20 years of experience teaching English as a second language.
Many of the teachers have a DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) or a Master’s in a teaching-related field.
I have 15 years’ experience teaching English as a foreign language and am working towards an MA in EFL (English as a Foreign Language). I am a football fan (watching and playing!) I also like playing with my kids and going for walks.
I’m a Master’s qualified teacher (Applied Linguistics) with over 15 years’ experience in a number of countries, including Russia, Poland, Spain – and, of course, the UK! In my free time I enjoy cooking and baking, as well as various music and dance-related activities.
I’ve got over 20 years’ experience in teaching English, a PGCE & a CELTA. I lived in Athens for 22 years so am a speaker of modern Greek.
I like playing snooker, holidays to Greece and cafe culture!
I began my teaching career in South Korea in 2007. I loved teaching and living abroad but decided to return to the UK in 2010. I am DELTA qualified and I’ve taught in schools in Cambridge and York and I decided to settle down in York where I now live. I love being outside in the countryside and exploring new places in Yorkshire. When I have time I enjoy baking and crafting.
I’ve been a teacher for around ten years and am CELTA qualified and hold a PGCE. I’ve enjoyed teaching from my first job as a volunteer teacher to teaching in secondary schools. I’ve worked in different countries and enjoyed all of them. In my free time I enjoy walking my dog, reading and writing poetry, particularly Larkin and Shakespeare, and sampling local ales.
I have taught English for 5 years both in the UK and in Spain. I love meeting new people and hearing about their experiences. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, cooking, going to the gym and generally being active.
I’ve been teaching English for around ten years and have a Delta. I have experience of teaching on pre-sessional courses here in the UK and I’ve recently completed a course in teaching academic English. I have worked in Russia, Poland and Japan, but am happy to be home in Yorkshire now! I love teaching at Leeds English because I get to meet people from different cultures and help them to improve their English and enjoy their time in the UK. In my free time, I have a lot of hobbies including mountain biking, studying Japanese and watching live music
I’m a diploma qualified teacher with 10 years’ experience. I qualified in Spain and lived and taught in Barcelona for several years.
Coming back to the UK, I decided to move to the North of England and I fell in love with Leeds!
Outside of school you can find me doing a lot of different things from watching netflix to hiking through the countryside.
I’m a CELTA and iPGCE qualified teacher with 12 years’ experience teaching in Europe, West Africa, North and Central America, and Southeast Asia. I have an MA in Global Development and Education and am currently finshing a PhD in Education Policy. I love yoga, cooking, salsa dancing, and trying to befriend any animals that cross my path.
I have a MA(Tesol) and over 20 years' teaching experience in the North East, Central Asia and Australasia.
Since I've been working abroad so long, in my freetime now I like exploring parts of the UK I have never been to before and discovering places, I've never heard of before.
In the future I would like to find out more about teaching and learning using techniques from applied drama. I hope to learn about music composition, and even try writing a book of contemporary fairy tales
