Hi, my name’s Carly and I was born in the UK. As a child, my family lived in several cities, including London, and as an adult, I’ve traveled to over 30 different countries. This has made me very open to different cultures and lifestyles. I’ve also adopted many animals during my travels, including a Spanish cat and a crazy Arabic dog!
Before teaching, I worked in Melbourne, Australia as an actress in theatre and television. My first teaching job was in Cambodia, in a lovely school in the capital city. I discovered that acting and role-play could make lessons fun. During classes, we made radio shows, soap operas and news programmes. My young students enjoyed learning new grammar and vocabulary whilst working on interesting projects.
I’ve been teaching for thirteen years and during that time, I’ve taught in five different countries; to teenagers and adults, students, business professionals and politicians. In London, I spent three years tutoring foreign executives and politicians in their offices, which required a high level of professionalism.
One of my most rewarding experiences was in Oman; a beautiful country in the Arabian Gulf. I taught university students, and greatly enjoyed learning about their language and culture, whilst helping them to understand and appreciate English. Academic writing is my specialism, and during our lessons, my students learned how to structure essays properly, and also fell in love with the writing process. I was amazed at quickly their essay grades improved. I keep in contact with many, who are now young professionals. Some are proud to tell me that they are English teachers!
In addition to my CELTA teaching qualification, I also have a diploma in acting, a first-class bachelors degree and a Post-graduate Diploma in International Development. I have studied German, French, Spanish, Khmer and Arabic.
