My name is Lynette and I am from London, England. I have nine years’ experience as a CELTA-qualified English Language teacher, preparing people for Business English, Cambridge Exams (from A2-C2), and general English needs. I love creating a supportive, fun atmosphere for my students, where they are encouraged to ask questions and take risks with language in order to learn and develop.
I studied Chemical Engineering at Imperial College. I then spent six years in Investment Consulting, both in London and Madrid, before starting work at an NGO for London’s homeless in 2006, working in Corporate Fundraising. My work experience has given me valuable knowledge to help Business English learners use technical language as well as accounting and financial terms.
I eventually moved to Valencia in 2011 looking for a quieter lifestyle and a more comfortable city. I’m now happily living with my two dogs in the city centre and I love exploring the region with them on long walks in the countryside. My other passion is weightlifting – I compete nationally and internationally in Masters events. I am a 2020 British Champion and 2017 European silver medallist. Currently, I’m training hard for this year’s European Championships and the World Masters Games 2021 in Japan.
I look forward to being your Askaway Coach and helping you to meet your goals in English language learning!
