Fiona Marshall

After 15 years of working in the travel industry, I found myself working in a primary school in Dubai. I was responsible for giving EFL support to students who couldn't cope with the regular curriculum. I started working this year with British Council. I really enjoy creating exciting lessons and making sure the course runs smoothly for our young learners. The rest of my time is for family. I have two teenage boys who keep me on my toes.

I have been teaching English since 1999. I obtained my Trinity CertTESOL in 2002 and Certificate in Teaching Young Learners in 2011. I love teaching kids because I have a lot of fun with them. They're very receptive and they love learning. I taught in Spain, Mozambique, Colombia, Morocco and the UK before joining British Council Tanzania in 2014. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, travelling and cooking.
