Hi I’m Rachael. As a modern languages graduate, I love language learning and know well just how challenging and rewarding the experience can be. I’ve been teaching English since 2002, spending most of my time living abroad, in Turkey. Having just completed my Trinity Diploma in TESOL, I’m really enjoying helping the students here at Bath Academy of English to improve their language skills. I’m also particularly interested in preparing them for academic study in English. In my free time, I like to keep fit, eat out and enjoy the English countryside.
I trained to teach EFL in 1998 and I moved to Taiwan where I began my English teaching career. I have extensive experience in teaching General English at all levels and preparing students for IELTS. I really enjoy helping students develop their skills in English. With a Master’s degree in Business and experience in Banking, I also teach English for Business. My interests include music, cinema, bird-watching, reading and horticulture.
I originally joined Bath Academy as an ELT teacher and gradually took on a marketing role as the academy evolved, helping rebrand the school with a new logo and new website. Originally from Canada, I moved to the UK in 1997 and recently returned after living abroad in Paris and Florida. The challenge of living and working in different countries as well as learning a new language inspired me to teach others, so I completed my CELTA at City of Bristol College and am pleased to be using my skills both as a content marketer and teacher at the academy. I also have a Diploma in Journalism and am a freelance writer/photographer and regular contributor to Project Calm Magazine.
