I have been a teacher for more than 20 years now. Without doubt, this is one of the most interesting and rewarding professions in the world, so if I was asked to choose a path again, I would turn the same direction. Nothing compares to the experience of understanding the individual way a person acquires a language, and join him/her to make this process enjoyable. When I don't teach English, I read a lot, go hiking or train my mind by learning languages.

I have been teaching learners of English of all ages and abilities since 2010. For me, regardless of age, nationality and experience, creating a good rapport with my students is an essential aspect of what we do. Therefore I feel my purpose as a teacher is to set up an engaging environment in which students from all walks of life feel motivated and encouraged to learn.
Having spent a few years cutting my teeth at a language school in Cambridge, I now find myself working with the British Council in Hungary and can often be found reading in cosy cafes, playing football, or enjoying some of the myriad delights of the city.
"I consider language education a mission. I greatly enjoy being an active part of it."

I have been teaching English for more than 20 years now and been with the British Council for 4 years. I have lived in the USA and travelled a lot . I believe that every learning process should include fun and lots of laughter. In my free time I enjoy the tranquility of gardening but I also love travelling with my family.
"Learning and teaching languages is fun and I spread my enthusiasm to students. I see teaching as an opportunity both for teachers and students to share knowledge, interests and ideas."

"What do I do? I teach English. I teach confidence. I teach openness. I build up trust. I show kindness. I motivate. I support. I smile. I correct. I comment. I pay attention. I listen. I learn. I joke. We laugh. I lead. They follow."
