About Me

My name is Kirsty Collier. I was born and raised in the North of England. I have a BA (hons) Degree in Education with QTS (qualified teacher status) and 120 hour TEFL (teaching English to foreign learners) qualification.

I have been a secondary school teacher for ten years in England teaching a mixture of subjects including English, Skills, Geography, Travel and Tourism, History, RE, Geology and Maths. For six of these years I was the head of Geography with responsibly for ten staff. I also have experience in business as my husband and I created a paintball site and then sold the company.

Part time, since my teenage years, I have also taught outdoor education such as Rock Climbing, Archery and Bush craft. I have traveled to many countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and America, and therefore I have had the challenge of trying to learn many new languages.

I now live in Crete in Greece and work as an online English teacher. I help my students with speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English; my mother tongue. I love teaching and speaking to my students. I find every lesson a pleasure and a delight. Every student’s lessons are tailored to their individual needs; this is very interesting and rewarding. I pride myself on my organisation skills, my patience and my friendly nature.

Online I teach students living all over the world. My students vary in age, culture, nationally and ability. My students are learning English for a wide variety of reasons enabling them to reach their own goals.

Your own motivation may be to speak, read or write in English more fluently, or you may wish to pass an examination such as the IETLS.

I look forward to working with you.
