Alison Thackray

Native English Speaker

 Alison has been teaching English to adults and children since 2004. Believing that learning is most effective when it is fun, she is committed to creating an entertaining educational environment, supporting individual learners to develop to their full potential. Her experience teaching phonics and early reading make her perfectly placed to help learners connect sound to written language, developing conversational fluency alongside reading and writing skills. Alison holds a Trinity (Cert.) TESOL and an MA (Hons.) in Social Anthropology with Development. 

 Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, a really long time ago, she describes her British accent as "the best accent for being understood".  Alison can't wait to join you on your language learning journey.
