I taught Academic English and General English at university and training schools in China for 15 years. I also taught in New Zealand and Indonesia. Before coming to United English, I taught at a high school in Chiapas and at another training school here in Queretaro.

What do you like about teaching at UE?

United English is a very professional organisation. The training and support for teachers and students is great!

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes – fear is the greatest barrier to learning a language.
