My Qualifications & Tutoring Experience
I read English Language and Literature at Magdalen College, University of Oxford graduating in in 1999. I spent the next decade working successfully for various private tutoring companies in the UK and internationally, with memorable stints in Switzerland, the US, Morocco, Dubai, Greece, France, and Saudi Arabia. In 2009, I took the plunge and opened a teacher recruitment agency providing teachers from worldwide destinations with the opportunity to work as educators in the Middle East, particularly the lucrative and as-then-fully-untapped Saudi Arabian market.
I returned to university in 2013 to complete an M.Sc. in Management at University College London from the UCL School of Management. This paid off when in 20I5, I was offered the position of Education Services Director of Kingdom Teachers UK, where I was responsible for all areas of planning, organisation, recruitment and management of the business strategies for gaining education business contacts. My primary area of business was concerned with winning recruitment service contracts which would supply ESL teachers to all areas of the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman and UAE.
Kingdom Teachers' big challenge came at the end of 2016 when we decided to expand our business in Asia. I was responsible for creating workable strategies to develop relationships with clients, suppliers and other partners in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Singapore. My work here involved careful strategic planning and positioning of the appropriate recruitment strategies with the specific aim to enhance the operation of the business, position and reputation of the brand within in these countries.
Kingdom Teachers Group was merged with G5 Education in June 2018 with the specific aim of expanding the educational services we offer. I now have a new "quieter" role in G5 Education as Admissions Advisor for G5 Education in the UK. Alongside this work I run higher education seminars and events for staff, students, and parents. In the UK, I am a regular speaker at Higher Education events advising on UK university admission strategy. I am looking forward this new chapter and delighted to have the opportunity to be working as a student tutor again. I am keen to see where this new opportunity leads to and after many years of travelling, for now, I am very grateful to be living back in London, UK.
