Chris studied German and Swedish at university and taught German and French in secondary schools for 15 years. He left the classroom in 2001 and spent the next 15 years working for England's largest exam board, first as a subject manager in the Modern Foreign Languages team and later as a Teacher Support Manager, setting up and running training courses for teachers in a wide range of subjects.
Chris decided to return to language teaching and obtained his CELTA qualification at CES in early 2018. He loves the experience of meeting and teaching students from all over the world and putting his EFL skills into practice.
In his free time Chris enjoys walking in the Yorkshire Dales, caravanning and singing in a choir.
