Philippa is from West Yorkshire, the UK with a Polish/Irish background. She grew up in a small village on the edge of a forest and dreamed of living in different countries: because of this she has more than ten years teaching experience in the UK, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and Chile.
She moved to Australia in 2014, through the working holiday visa and then the student visa programme. Now in her fifth year in Australia, Philippa has worked in a number of ELICOS providers in the Sydney area, as well as university programmes for Academic English, including the University of Sydney and Macquarie University.
A total study nerd: she is currently studying Spanish, Portuguese and German… for fun. Accustomed to making embarrassing mistakes in other languages: her aim is to get her students using English in the fastest, easiest and most enjoyable way possible.
