Hi! My name’s Jeni and I’m the Birmingham school's Academic Manager. I’ve worked training teachers and running schools all over the world, including in Japan and Russia, as well as the UK. I have also spent the last four years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, so I’m looking forward to some cool British weather! I’m a mad sports fan, particularly football, tennis, and Formula 1. I really hope we can welcome some Liverpool fans this year--we need the support! I love playing badminton, swimming, and have a real passion for amateur dramatics, and even appeared in the fantastic Edinburgh Festival once. I look forward to meeting and welcoming you to our school!
Accommodation and Welfare Manager
I'm here to help students with any accommodation queries. I've had 4 years’ experience helping students find accommodation to enhance their experience in the UK. Before this I was teaching in France, so I understand how scary it can be in a new country. I'm also the Welfare Officer for the school and I’m here to be a friendly face if you need to talk about your problems.
Student Engagement Officer
Hi, I’m Malika. I have been teaching English since 2011 in the UK, working with a wide range of young learners and adults from all over the world. I joined the TLG team in 2012 and have enjoyed every single minute of it. The intercultural ‘melting pot’ environment we work in is just amazing.
Hi, I’m Steve. After briefly working in the oil industry, I have been working as an EFL teacher since 2008, and have taught in South Korea, China, Ukraine and Vietnam, as well as here in Birmingham. It was my love of travelling and meeting new people that inspired me to start teaching. I find that greeting new students and learning about their cultures is the best part of my job. I look forward to working with you at TLG!
My name is Dimitris and I am an ESL Teacher at The Language Gallery in Birmingham. I qualified as a language teacher in 2004 and I started teaching in 2007. So far, I have taught English in Spain, Italy, and the UK. I was born in Greece but I have lived in several European countries. I like music, cinema and literature, and I am a keen language learner.
My name is Shirley and I have been teaching English for many years. I have worked in Turkey, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia. They were all wonderful locations where I was fortunate to meet amazing students from all walks of life and gain a deep insight into their cultures. I specialise in teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and university and exam preparatory courses, but I have also taught business English, hospitality English, and general English. When I am not teaching, I love travelling to new places and also watching football, especially Leicester City and Stoke City!
Hi I’m Rebecca. I’ve been teaching English for about 3 years, and I lived in Spain for 2 years, teaching teenagers and adults. Two of my grandparents were language teachers so I’ve always been interested in learning and teaching myself. I love football and I am a fan of Macclesfield Town (don’t worry: not many people have heard of them!).
Hello, I’m Luke. I’ve been teaching English since 2010. I taught in Korea and Hungary before coming back to the UK. I enjoy being a part of the TLG team and am committed to helping students improve their English skills. Especially their IELTS band scores...!
Hi, my name is Anke. Currently the newest member of the team, I’ve been an English teacher at the Language Gallery since November 2016. I’m really enjoying my recent transition and career progression from working with primary school children to teaching adults. Apart from spending my childhood and adolescence in Germany, I have not lived and worked abroad, but I love travelling and have visited many countries, including Finland, Croatia, Estonia, Austria, Hungary, Morocco, the US, the Netherlands, Greece and others. A big fan of rock music, I’m also interested in social history, arts and crafts; I enjoy cooking and love international cuisine.
