Hi there, my name is Chris and I'm from Devon, in the south of England. I have been teaching English as a foreign language for over six years and have taught in China, the UK, Hungary and Spain. I have a background in Music and studied Composition at the RSAMD in Glasgow, Trinity Laban in London and the University of York. After finishing my master's at York, I travelled to China to teach for a little while and fell in love with it. I've been teaching ever since!
My teaching journey began in 2011, after obtaining my Bachelors at the UWI, in Jamaica and subsequently, becoming TEFL-certified. My style of teaching focuses on the student's unique needs. I believe that every student learns differently and it is my responsibility to create a learning environment that allows each student to feel safe enough to explore and experiment with new information in order to maximize their fullest potential. I'm excited to meet and get to know you. See you soon!
I am a passionate academic with extensive teaching experience. I am proficient in English, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese, as well as culturally sensitive with a deep understanding of the education sector. I obtained my Master’s degree from Moscow State University of International Relations, Russia’s top diplomatic school. I also have a PhD in history and politics from the University of Melbourne, the highest-ranking university in Australia. I am currently working on my academic monograph.
I am also a CELTA-certified English teacher and am passionate about helping students achieve high scores in the IELTS test as well as pursue further studies and vocations. My combined experience and proficiency in grammar, communication and education means I can help students to express themselves effectively in any scenario.
My name is Graciana and I have been a teacher of English for the last 14 years. I am from Mendoza (La tierra del sol y del buen vino) Argentina, in Latin America. I have been to countries like Chile, Scotland and England, where I lived for 8 months.
I love teaching English online because it allows me to meet students and teachers that I would never be able to meet otherwise! Plus, I also get to learn about other countries and cultures! In addition, I enjoy having fun lessons where creativity, discussion and ideas can flourish.
My name is Shelley. I have been teaching since 2009.
I have worked as a Director of Studies (DOS), English for Academic Purposes (EAP) lecturer, and young learner specialists, in Spain, Italy, Mexico and the UK.
I have masters degrees in Child Studies, Translation Studies, and TEFL and Applied Linguistics from universities in Spain, Sweden and the UK.
I am passionate about the student’s experience in the classroom and how we can bring personalisation into our lessons to promote engagement. In addition to teaching, I write ESL/EFL (English as a second language and English as a foreign language) content, and materials for teacher training and blogs.
I have taught many different age groups and nationalities and helped these students to achieve their goals. I look forward to helping you on your language learning journey.

Hi there, my name is Nina. I am so excited to meet you and get to know you! I am from beautiful, sunny South Africa, where I currently reside. I have worked in many different industries and gained amazing worldly knowledge through these different work environments, but my true passion and purpose lies in education.
I have experience with remedial teaching and facilitating of all different age groups, from toddlers to teens, university students to high powered professionals and government officials. In my sessions, I am my student’s biggest cheerleader.
I would describe myself as enthusiastic, patient, dedicated, reliable, high-energy, flexible, encouraging but most of all loads of fun! The more fun and engaging the lesson, the more we retain. [And you don’t even feel like you are learning 😉] I love teaching, as I get to connect with many different people from all walks of life. I take pleasure in getting to know my students, understanding their needs and helping them achieve their goals. I believe that knowledge is power. Empowering others to know their full potential is what it’s all about. It’s meaningful, which makes me love what I do, even more. I can’t wait to meet you!
Hello parents and students! I have been an online ESL teacher since 2015. I have also taught in Iceland, Taiwan, and the USA. I currently live in beautiful Phuket, Thailand.

Hi, my name is Eleanor, I am from Bournemouth in the U.K. I have been teaching English for 13 years, to a wide variety of people from around the world of all ages! I have taught in the U.K, Austria, Spain-where I currently live and online to students in China. I love to teach and facilitate learning, guiding students to recognize their own skills, talents, and ideas about things, allowing them to gain a good understanding of relevant topics and discuss them with confidence. I think it’s important for students to enjoy classes (and life!) cultivate creativity and learn how to make a difference.
I love to do yoga and meditation, spend time in nature, walk or cycle near the sea or in the mountains, read, listen to music, sing, occasionally play the guitar, and spend time with my friends and family. I also love to travel and visit new places. I have visited many countries- my favorites including India, Colombia, Turkey, and Italy.
I look forward to meeting you in the Shiminly classroom!
