Find out more about Denise below:
“I am delighted to be working with the Global English TESOL family again as an online tutor.
I started out in TEFL in the Middle East, working in a secondary school for girls in Qatar. This was a great opportunity to meet young girls who had never met a non-Muslim before. From there I moved into Medical English at the local School of Nursing in Doha, before relocating to Bahrain, where I worked in the prestigious Arabian Gulf University.
I have worked as an ESOL tutor and a Cambridge ESOL examiner, which put me in touch with many people trying to make a life for themselves in our country. More recently I have worked for Trinity College London as a SELT examiner, assessing candidates applying for the right to remain in this country or citizenship. This has been a fascinating and very rewarding experience too.
Another way to use our EFL/ ESOL skills is to work with refugees. For the last year I have worked with an Afghani student to help her obtain the level of English she needs to become a nurse. I am now working on preparing materials to help immigrants cope with Medical English at a more basic level – going to the doctor, explaining the problem and understanding the answer etc.
I’m looking forward to working with you!”
Thank you, Denise. It’s great to have someone of your experience with us at Global English.
