I’m Ariel! I grew up in Bath and did my teacher training here. I have a theoretical background from studying Linguistics at Cambridge, but my classes are lively and interactive. I’m a huge language nerd – I speak seven – and a writer. I love bringing storytelling into the classroom, as we are surrounded by stories in our everyday lives. For example, I run a podcast called Easy Stories in English, where I read out short fiction graded to different levels for learners of English. In my free time I read, write, and study languages – I told you I was a nerd!
I am a languages graduate with a Diploma qualification in EFL. I started my teaching career at a language school in Bournemouth before becoming an EFL lecturer in Southampton. I have since taught general, business and academic English to both young learners and adults in Bath and Bristol. Most recently my teaching has been focused on the IELTS and IGCSE exams. In my spare time I enjoy walking and going to the theatre.
