Malvern House Administrator


Originally from ‘the city of dreaming spires’ – Oxford – I have spent most of my life living in London. My career began when I realised how much I adore languages, which was when I was studying Japanese at school. I have been teaching English for about ten years now, and will continue to do so!


I have experience with all levels from absolute beginner to advanced, but my strongest point is teaching exam classes like IELTS. I’ve helped lots of students achieve their dreams of studying in university or simply to improve their English fast so that they could embark on their life adventures!
