Our Native Teachers


I am the academic director at Cambridge International Academy. I graduated with a Bachelor of English language and literature degree and an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages TESOL. I have 7 years of experience in teaching international students. I started my career as an English for specific purposes University instructor and I have been teaching English in Turkey for 3 years. I specialize in teaching general English, conversation classes, English exam preparation (FCE, CAE, IELTS, TOEFL), and English for specific purposes.


I’m originally from the U.K, born in London. I’ve lived here in Istanbul since 1998. I’ve been teaching English for 19 years. Most of that time has been spent in Turkey in private language schools. However I’ve also taught in the U.K at various summer courses teaching multi –national classes.
Mostly I teach general English but I have experience in teaching IELTS and TOEFL.
In terms of free time and hobbies, I love spending time with my daughter, going out with friends at the weekend and learning to play the guitar.
