I am from Cornwall in the south-west of England. I have lived in Italy since 2005. My passions are the environment, politics, the arts, culture, languages and science. I am passionate about learning and regularly research new subjects to share with my students, old and young. I am a qualified and experienced English teacher and I enjoy teaching and helping others communicate. I am an experienced at delivering quality translations on time and suitable for your audience. I have over 4 years of experience building, maintaining and providing content for a range of websites. I have a creative, fun and dynamic approach to my work.
In England I worked in senior positions in several NGOs, specialising in strategy, policy and identifying and sharing good practice. In Italy I work with a group of artisans, who have become successful selling internationally, through the use my translation services, English lessons and website content management. I also spent 5 years working for an International School in Rome, and still provide on-line support for their students and former students.
I like being experimental and host and facilitate two English conversation initiatives: Fancy a Chat - the English Aperitif and English Weekend, a full immersion, residential experience.
My lessons are engaging and enjoyable because I design and source materials that are personalised for you. I treat you like an individual and enjoy learning about your interests and field of work as much as I enjoy helping you communicate better.
My translations are carefully prepared and delivered on time. I use proof readers and have a network of trusted translators covering Italian, French and Spanish.
I work carefully to develop a website that is attractive, simple to navigate and user friendly. I work with you to create content that will help your make your site SEO friendly - so it shows up in Google searches.
