Experience & Qualifications


I have been teaching in the UK for two years, having worked in Tignes for a season before qualifying as a teacher. My partner and I decided this year that we wanted to get back out to mountain life, and I want to continue working with young people. I am a competitive sailor and a keen skier/snowboarder. I love books, film and music. My previous career working in children's publishing helped me fall in love with children's books, and the art of storytelling. I'm excited to start living and working in the Alps, looking for nanny work and tutoring work.

I am a qualified secondary school English teacher, with a PGDE (Canterbury Christ Church University), a master's (University College London) and a BA (Queen's University Belfast). I am also an RYA qualified sailing instructor with first aid training.

I have been teaching sailing to children and young people for 10 years, at times fully responsible for up to 20 children on the water aged 4-18. As a teacher I have been responsible for classes of up to 35 students. I babysat my cousins and children of local families for years as a teenager, including toddlers.
