Hello everyone. I’m Stella and I have recently joined the fantastic team at the Academy. Originally, I was a scientist having gained a B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry. After many years of research and a number of publications I realised I enjoyed the academic language and writing aspects as much as the science. So, I did a ‘Diploma in English Language Studies’ followed by a B.A. in ‘English Language and Literature’. Combined with my love of foreign cultures through having lived abroad for several years, I chose to continue my development with a CELTA course so that I can share my interest in the idiosyncrasies of the English language.

In my spare time I walk my dog across the beautiful meadows of Bath.
