Ali Academia (March 2022 – Present, Italy):

I teach mostly adults and high-school students preparing for the Cambridge Assessment English exams using official Cambridge-approved books as well as games, conversations and technical linguistic tuition. The classes can be groups or one-to-one, online, offline or hybrid. I also invigilate real exams in our Cambridge-certified exam centre. Sadly, I have to leave Italy soon due to complications with Brexit.

Apex Education (August 2021 – February 2022, Ukraine):

During my time at Apex, I was sent to various primary and secondary schools around Kiev to teach high quality lessons to grades 4-10. I created an atmosphere of excitement through my

passion for language while my students practiced new words in real conversations and games.

Kornkaew Montessori School (November 2019 – July 2020, Thailand):

When schools closed in March 2020, we went into lockdown. On the 1st July the students returned and I taught for one more month but had to return home due a catch-22 at immigration.

Anuban Kamphaeng Saen School (May 2019 – October 2019, Thailand):

For the Thai academic term May-October 2019 I worked at a Thai state primary school in a small town. I was given a class of grade 5 students whom I taught every English, maths, science and health lesson they had. It was my responsibility to design each lesson, prepare materials and teach in a fun engaging way.
