Owner and lecturer for German as a second language & Spanish

I was born and raised in Ireland and have been teaching English as a Foreign Language for over 12 years. Starting off my career as an English language assistant in Germany, my job has taken me to various countries and I have enjoyed the journey along the way. Since locating to Zürich, I mainly prepare students for the First Certificate and the Advanced but also specialize in Business and Legal English.

Bring, for example, a website or thesis for a review, you will be amazed how we’ll perfect it!
