Oliver Kiondo

Senior Teacher

I started teaching English in Cairo, Egypt in 1987. I went on to get my CELTA there in 1989, and I have been working as a Teacher of English and a Professional Skills Trainer since then. In the course of my career I have taught both General English (at all levels) and Professional Development courses at British Council Egypt, and British Council Tanzania.


Through the years, I have gained vast experience working with adults as well as Young Learners.
