Occupation English language teacher and materials writer
Location Wembley, Middlesex, United Kingdom
Introduction I live in London and work as an English teacher and e-learning specialist. I also do a lot of English language examination work with a well-known British examinations institution. I run my own educational website at and write materials to supplement the published teaching materials which I use and to develop original ideas. I have written a book of vocabulary worksheets based on modern English derivations and their Latin roots, a book with a variety of exercises, a dictionary (of sorts) and book on word origins. Check my other websites, and to see what I've written. I have worked in Greece, Russia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, as well as the UK. I speak Greek, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and German to varying degrees of proficiency.
