Hi there, my name is Lindsay, I am from Scotland in the UK.

I am a TEFL Teacher, English teacher who enjoys teaching at all levels, from very young children, to school children and to those individuals that require practice for exams; for work, travel and for those that wish to immigrate to other countries. Having taught at Summer Language Schools in Edinburgh, Scotland, for a number of different language schools with students from any different parts of the world who come to the UK to learn English and enjoy the cultural experience.

I enjoy studying to increase my professional education, as I am a qualified IT Project Manager, self employed. This type of work with Verbling enables me to have a family life and lifestyle to work and study, which is very flexible. I hope to chat soon
